A Pretty Patio just isn't enough
By Sullivan of Vancouver West side (2 Reviews)

I went to Il Nido many years ago and on one of our recent summer evenings, convinced my husband to have dinner there. The garden patio is still a lovely quiet oasis off Robson's nightly mayhem. We started with a special - a bocconcini salad (each) which was a beautiful flavour but a few morcels - not worth $12.00. My huband had calimeri - long rubbery strips in some sauce that tasted so awful, we thought it had been coated in medical ointment. I had risotto which was gluey and heavy (although edible) and it was a very small portion. For drinks we had mineral water and an orangina. The bill was $73.00. We walked out (having just been taken for a ride) If you want a quiet garden patio with candelight later on, I might cross my fingers and go for dessert and coffee. But seriously - skip the food.

Hidden gem

Completely hidden off the corner of Robson & Thurlow. Incredibly rich food... I had a grilled ribeye with caramelized onion and foie gras stack on top. My partner had creamy wild mushroom lasagne. It was an absolutely perfect meal.
