Provence Marinaside1177 Marinaside Cres, Vancouver
An Expensive Trip to McDonald's
Submitted Saturday, September 1, 2007 - 3:00pm [Dine in]

I am getting increasingly irritated with the overly family friendly nature of restaurants in Vancouver. I was sorely disappointed by my experience at Provence for lunch. I went there to celebrate a friend's birthday and we were seated near a large obviously wealthy extended family with numerous children. They may have had lots of cash, but certainly no class. The children were out of control and very noisy. The adults in the group were no better. They had virtually taken over the restaurant and didn't care about other patrons. We were persistently ignored by the wait staff who were bending over backwards to please the rich folks. When we asked to be moved to a quieter location, we were greeted by a shrug. When we asked the waiter to talk to the group, he refused. We ate in silence as we could not be heard over the mind numbing noise, paid a great deal for food we could not enjoy. While they refused to accomodate our wish to have a nice companiable lunch, they certainly did not hesitate to take more of our money than they deserved.

Go Fish1504 West 1st Ave., Vancouver
Fish Tacos addiction
Submitted Saturday, September 1, 2007 - 10:17am [Dine in]

After listening to my friend rave on and on about Go Fish's fish tacos, I finally broke down and tried them. At $5 for one and $9 for two, they are a great deal. The salmon taco had a generous portion of perfectly bbq'd salmon, covered in a spicy sauce and fixins, including fresh cilantro served with healthy slaw on the side. Tasty, tasty, tasty. I instantly knew I had found a new addiction, strong enough to perhaps even supplant chocolate. Go Fish may just be a little fish shack, but the water side location is perfect for people watching and catching a few rays on a sunny day. Super casual eating. A breath of fresh air.

Naam, The2724 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Never Disappointed!
Submitted Sunday, August 19, 2007 - 3:13pm [Dine in]

I have been a regular at the Naam for over 20 years. Whenever you are sick of toxic food, a respite at the Naam is in order. Generous portions, fresh fixins and a totally laid back atmosphere. You'll leave feeling satisfied and like you've done your body good. Don't eat here if you're in a hurry though. The service has never been a selling point. Wait staff are nice enough, but usually spaced out , sometimes entertainingly so, sometimes infuriatingly so. You need to be assertive to make sure you get what you want. This is NOT a place for type A personality diners-they're probably not vegetarian anyway. But if you want great real healthy food and you're not uptight and can enjoy the creative, anarchic chaos of the place, by all means go and enjoy!

Taylor's Crossing Restaurant and Brewpub1035 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
A Brewpub just for kids! Imagine that!
Submitted Sunday, August 19, 2007 - 3:01pm [Dine in]

I was horrified to go for a beer and grub with adult friends, only to be met with a swarming sea of children having a McDonald's type party. Earsplitting noise, screaming children, magicians circulating! Yuck! It's obvious they are trying to expand their clientelle by appealling to the family crowd, but for crying out loud, this is a BREW PUB! I am getting tired of the overly family friendly nature of some North Shore eating establishments. When I choose to eat out and pay good money, I do not want to be bothered by screaming children running up and down the aisles! Especially at a Brew Pub. They better make up their minds as to who their target clientelle is. I am reluctant to go back after that experience!

Burgoo3 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Sticky Toffee Pudding!
Submitted Sunday, August 19, 2007 - 2:47pm [Dine in]

In my quest to find a Sticky Toffee pudding to rival that served at the Sunset restaurant on Saltspring Island I have come upon this offering at Burgoo. The ultimate sugar fix. Great toffee sauce, although they could be a little more generous with it! If you're in need of comfort, try it! Don't forget to have it with vanilla ice cream. Yum! As for the rest of the menu, solid results, but in general, I would say that the prices per dish are $3.00 to $5.00 too expensive per item. The prices are over inflated for the type of restaurant (casual comfort food).

Indian Fusion2045 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Best Indian Food on the North Shore!
Submitted Sunday, August 19, 2007 - 2:38pm [Dine in]

I was introduced to this restaurant about 6 months ago and have passed on this gem to friends who have all become Indian Fusion fans. The decor and music is hip and understated. The food is incredibly fresh and made with love. The wait for the well prepared food is worth it. This is not an Indian buffet type of place where the food has been sitting around. Every dish I have tried has been simply outstanding. The fusion sampler platter is to die for-not greasy, just right. The eggplant is divine. This is not your typical mom and pop Indian restaurant. The owners are young and hip and are really trying to make Indian food appeal to a wider audience by mixing traditional items with pizzas-yes Indian pizzas! I have never been disappointed by Indian Fusion and everyone I have introduced the restaurant to has become a big fan. Take out. Eat in. Delivery. Plenty of parking in the area. Worth the trip to the North Shore.

Boathouse Restaurant, The6695 Nelson Avenue, West Vancouver
A Birthday Treat!
Submitted Sunday, August 19, 2007 - 12:06am [Dine in]

I was pleasantly surprised by my special dinner at the Boathouse. From the moment we entered to the moment we left, the staff were friendly, professional, attentive and obviously happy to have our custom. The fish was fresh and the portions were generous and well presented. The sourdough pudding for dessert was mouth watering. The view was an added bonus-there really are few places in the lower mainland with such stunning views of the mountains and water. A perfect place for a special occasion. The prices were more than reasonable.
