Taverna Gorgona5047 48 Avenue, Delta
always great
Submitted Saturday, March 6, 2010 - 11:06pm [Dine in]

Ladner loves Taverna Gorgona! Always a hot spot for lunch or dinner. Take out is ready SO fast. Great prices and very large servings. We love the calamari. Lively place when belly dancer performs. Outdoor patio seating is nice in the summer. Free dessert sometimes is always a nice touch. Friendly wait staff.

Carmichael's5911 Minoru Blvd, Richmond
Delicious
Submitted Monday, August 3, 2009 - 10:48pm [Dine in]

We decided to try Charmichael's after seeing it in the Entertainment Book and checking out the menu online. Plus, we needed to find a place with A/C during Vancouver's heat wave! It is in the hotel lobby area, quite open, with guests walking past. This did not bother me - I actually felt like a tourist myself for a bit. BTW, the A/C was working well. They were not busy at all mid-week. I especially prefer quiet spots where I do not have to shout over loud music, so this was a perfect spot for me.

We ordered the prawn appetizer. It was $13, but it had about 15 prawns in it! Husband had the Thai chicken and I had butter chicken. About $17 each. What a perfect blend of flavours in both dishes. Generous portions, very yummy. Will definitely go again.

Why are they so busy?
Submitted Wednesday, July 8, 2009 - 3:49pm [Dine in]

Went to Boston Pizza in Ironwood last night. They were very busy, so we waited for about 10 minutes, which was OK. I find BP overpriced anyway, and our bill for 2 appies, a medium pizza, 1 drink, tip was over $50. Did not get our drinks and had to ask for them. Waiter gave us a coupon for free little pizza & drink for next time, though. Our empty plates were not taken away. Other staff brought our food, then our waiter came by twice right after food got dropped off to ask how it was ... well, I dunno, it just got plunked down and I have not eaten any yet, so how do I know?

Dutch Bakery & Coffee Shop, The718 Fort Street, Victoria
Good breakfast
Submitted Wednesday, July 8, 2009 - 3:41pm [Dine in]

My daughter and I went here for breakfast and were very pleased with how yummy it was, and how affordable. Service was fine. Waitresses were good to get us seated quickly with our wheelchair, even when coincidentally there were 2 other groups with wheelchairs there. Tight fit, though. Bakery items delicious, as well. It felt strange to me though that the place is exactly as it was 20 years ago when I was a UVic student and would come in for a treat.

Sophie's Cosmic Cafe2095 W. 4th Ave, Vancouver
It was just OK
Submitted Saturday, June 6, 2009 - 9:44pm [Dine in]

My husband and I decided to find a spot to eat near UBC from the Entertainment Book. Sophie's looked like fun and they had quite a few customers, so we thought it would be a good bet. It was just OK. The waitress was very nice and energetic, but she could use some tips on how to get customers to order more (she gave us water and assumed that's all we wanted, plus she did not mention the specials, plus no mention of dessert). I had the salmon burger and fries, which was alright, but maybe a bit pricey at $12.95. My husband tried linguini with prawns, $13.95. It was OK, but not as flavourful as it could have been. Comfortable enough place. We were glad to have our 2 for 1 coupon.

Shaughnessy Restaurant5251 Oak St., Vancouver
should be better
Submitted Friday, January 9, 2009 - 11:44pm [Dine in]

My gal pal and I had dinner at The Shaughnessy on a Friday night. Love the decor and peaceful room. Not very many patrons, and that might be because the food was just so so. The Tuscan Salad was quite good ($12). I ordered salmon ($27), and it was a generous piece, but it all tasted a litttle odd and bland. It was supposed to have papaya, but it had none, and the strawberries were not even red. Beans and potatoes tasted old. My friend ordered the trout and it was also not so good. Creme brulee ($8.50) tasted great, but was a bit runny. Waiter and waitress were not so attentive, and not smily or friendly. I love this location and the feel of The Shaughnessy, but cannot justify the expense - poor entrees.

Bridges1696 Duranleau Street, Vancouver
Substandard
Submitted Saturday, February 16, 2008 - 6:34pm [Dine in]

What a disappointment! My husband and I decided to travel over to Granville Island for a Valentine's lunch in Bridges Bistro. We were very disappointed with the food. It was very poor quality and yet very costly. We would have done better to get a couple of Big Macs from the drivethru. My husband ordered the crab & halibut burger. It was a dry patty in a huge dry bun, for $17! He choked it down. I ordered the Big Island salad. Prawns were great on it, but the avacado was discoloured from age, and the cashews were burned. And it cost $15! We should have voiced out concern about the food, but it was Valentine's and did not want to expend the energy on that. We are no cheapos, and have eaten in many major cities in low end and high end restaurants. We're more than a little embarassed that Bridges Bistro is serving to tourists in our fine city. Definitely substandard!
