Cardero's1583 Coal Harbour Quay, Vancouver
Great service at Cardero's
Submitted Tuesday, December 26, 2006 - 3:38am [Dine in]

We like to get to Cardero's once in a while as it reminds us of one of our other favorite places Sandbar. Both have a nice crowd and an energy to them especially on a Friday and Saturday. My wife and I were in a few weeks back and happened to have a great meal accompanied by some amazing service. Our waiters name was Brian and he was "on it" from the start to finish. My wife went with the Ahi Tuna (rare) as she's always the seafood lover and I had braised lamb shank. Our service took good food and turned our night into a great dining experience. I miss the summer when I go to Carderos and will be back again when it warms up!

Sandbar Seafood Restaurant1535 Johnston Street, Vancouver
One of our favorites!
Submitted Tuesday, December 26, 2006 - 3:30am [Dine in]

What can you say about the Sandbar that hasn't already been said? It is a favorite of ours for friends from out of town, it has amazing food and has never disappointed! We went again a few weeks back when I had an old friend from University back in Van. from New Zealand. We started with some lettuce wraps, mushrooms, some salt prawns and oysters all of which showed up fairly quickly and looking delicious! I am a sucker (as is my buddy) for a frosty pint of lager and we washed appies down with a couple of GI's as the ladies had some red wine. For the life of me, I can't recall what our friends had for dinner but I had a big Rib Eye steak that was cooked perfectly and the wife had the salmon with fresh beans and we both enjoyed them. We relaxed and enjoyed some great conversation and frangelico in one of Vancouver's finest! Love it!

Relish888 Nelson St., Vancouver
Amazing - A hidden gem!
Submitted Tuesday, December 26, 2006 - 3:22am [Dine in]

OK - I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive to try another restaurant reccommended by my wife that I'd never heard of (often wonder why this is) but decided to go to Relish on Nelson. She'd gone with friends at some point and told me that she had a great time there so we went two Fridays ago. I actually didn't realize it at the time but the place used to be The Urban Well many years ago and boy has it changed! We walked through the front doors which were held but 2 hostesses into a packed (and I mean *packed*) house. We were asked if we had reservations and we didn't so were asked if we wanted to spend 15 mins in the bar on a wait for a table. We thought that wouldn't be too bad so did. The table luckily only took 5 mins and we were in and had appetizers to us quickly. My wife had 1/2 doz. oysters and I had baked brie both of which were fantastic. My wife had a salmon for dinner and I had BBQ Ribs which were (as my waiter told me they would be) unbelieveable. Without trying to sound too corny, they were the best ribs I have ever tried. After the cheese appetizer though, at the end of the ribs, I was feeling like I'd never eat again! I can't say enough about the waiter either. Very attentive without being overbearing. We loved everything about Relish and will be back again soon!

Saltlik1032 Alberni St, Vancouver
Much ado about something...
Submitted Tuesday, December 26, 2006 - 3:09am [Dine in]

I had held off going to this place much like I like to hold off going to a new movie when the masses go and for a similar reason. Often, reality doesn't match the hype. I had heard a lot about Saltlik but realized after my experience that it was mostly from a force fed marketing perspective. The room was nice but really - it was a cross between Earls and the Keg - just not as good of food as the keg and (I'm stretching here) not as cute waitresses as Earls. I had steak because I had to and my med-rare was more like med well and my beer was pretty warm. My wife has made me promise to take her there (went with some guys from the office after work a couple of weeks ago) and I begrudgingly accepted. Many better places to go in the city.

Guu Original838 Thurlow St, Vancouver
Very Guud
Submitted Tuesday, December 26, 2006 - 3:04am [Dine in]

Happened upon Guu on a reccommendation from friends. It was all that it was promised to to be. I had okonomiyaki, fried calamari, beef yaki udon and sake. Intimate but casual enough to be comfortable at all times! Would suggest to anyone looking for a break from the seemingly thousands of Western Japanese restaurants as this seemed to me as Japanese as I've found in this city.
