Where in the World to Eat: Fish Restaurants in Vancouver

Where in the World to Eat: Fish Restaurants in Vancouver
Blue Water Cafe: Sturgeon with pumpernickel crust
Located on the West Coast of Canada, Vancouver's icy Pacific waters yield a bounty of fresh seafood, bringing in Arctic Char, Dungeness crab and spot prawns to name a few. Back on land, a wealth of restaurants show off the finest local catch, from a simple fish and chips to the grandest seafood platters. We visit a diverse, dynamic mix of Vancouver venues fuelling and shaping the scene.
COAST Seafood Restaurant
1054 Alberni Street Vancouver, BC V6E 1A3
(604) 685 5010
COAST has a longstanding reputation for fine seafood dining, moving to larger premises to accommodate a growing clientele discerning diners. The stylish West Coast-style decor sets the tone for a menu celebrating the best seafood Vancouver has to offer, with Dennis Peckham's innovative menu encompassing chowders, steamers, sushi and, of course, the Signature seafood platter for two.
Blue Water Cafe & Raw Bar
1095 Hamilton Street, Vancouver, BC V6B 5T4

Chef Frank Pabst is passionate about wild, sustainable seafood at this sleek warehouse conversion, where the vibe is 'East-meets-West'. This translates to a raw bar and complex dishes like 'West Coast sablefish with miso sake glaze, baby bok choy, edamame, quinoa and shiitake mushrooms, bonito dashi with soy and yuzu', Oenophiles must thoroughly investigate the wine list- the selection is award winning.
Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant
3888 Main Street, Vancouver BC V5V 3N9

Founded in the 1980s, this Chinese restaurant applies traditional Eastern flavours to the freshest Canadian seafood with delicious results. Spanking fresh Alaska King Crab steamed with minced garlic is a signature dish, with lucky diners sometimes able to sample 'rare catches' of Potato eel, Halibut or Pacific cod. Snack on dim sum or, for large groups, the banquet menus are well worth a look.
Finest At Sea

Billed as a 'seafood boutique and bistro', Finest At Sea enables diners to take home a wide selection of the pescatarian goodies available in the restaurant. The company have 8 fishing vessels, and have been in the industry since the 1970s, supplying many other local restaurants. This expertise means seafood is treated with the respect it deserves, with simple, seasonal preparations served up in the bistro with few fripperies.

A taste of sunny, French climes at this Yaletown venue, where the menu is packed with warm Mediterranean flavours which underscore the rich diversity of the seafood on offer. There's a raw oyster bar, and a menu featuring specialities of Fruits de Mer and a spectacular Bouillabaisse.
