I was never really a dessert person until I stumbled upon Sweet Revenge. This little hot spot is easy to miss if you're driving down Main Street. Like the area, the patisserie has an eclectic interior and vintage mood. The menu includes selections for light and heavy dessert eaters. They have a variety of tea and dessert wine very enjoyable while having a late night hangout. The Creme Brule and Zuccotto are my favorite of the bunch, consider that I am less of a sweets person. The White Chocolate Cheesecake is the best cheesecake I've ever had! Forget Cheesecake Etc! What you order here is what you get. Every bite is aromatic and delectable! The only thing I suggest for the patisserie is that they should be a little more creative with their presentation.
Since my first visit, I make sure I get into a weekly routine of spoiling myself at the dessert house. The only time I had a dissapointing visit was the time when I had to get in line for 10 minutes...and you know what that means: When there is a line-up, it is going to be cheap and good.

Also Lounge is not your typical Richmond hotspots. In fact, it almost needs to relocate into the westend part of Downtown Vancouver. If you're looking for a typical but a good blend of fusion food, this is the place to be. The menu provides a variety of dishes infused with french, chinese, indonesian, italian, japanese, and westcoast flare. Not pricey at all consider the chef's creativity, taste consistentcy and portion. They have a great cocktail list for light drinkers. I recomend the Crabcakes as they are handpicked and fried to perfection as well as the Duck Confit, well flavoured and is paired with pasta on the side. The restaurant has a contemporary, classic atmosphere. They also have live jazz band playing once a week. A great place for romantic dates and of course good food!

At Blue Water, not only will you get great service, you also get to sample some of the fresh variety the sea! We have recently had one of the best oysters as well as the sockeye salmom sashimi in town. They have a variety of sushi rolls that are very tasty as well! If you are looking for quantity, you're in the wrong place. The price is fair consider the quality of food. The winelist is extremely extensive. A good seafood restaurant is determined by how simple they serve their dishes, it's really the only way to taste the freshness of the ingredients.
Blue Water is similar but has a less clustered menu than Joe Fortes. Dishes are better prepared and well coordinated than The Boathouse or Sandbar. Fresh, Clean, Contemporary. This is definitely one of the best seafood restaurant and raw bar in Vancouver.
