The Prospect Point Lookout is Vancouver’s #1 Tourist Attraction, and nestled on the cliff side, you will find a grand viewdeck overlooking the Lions Gate Bridge, seating over 200 people. The Prospect Point Cafe specializes in westcoast cuisine, with wild BC Salmon as the specialty. There is also a great selection of casual comfort food including pastas, burgers, rice bowls, pizzas and of course their famous Fish & Chips. After dinner, save room for the World Famous Prospect Point homemade Ice Cream or homemade fudge. Call 604.669.2737 for reservations or information.
We shared a 2 piece fish n chips for an afternoon snack. The 2 pieces of fish were the smallest we've ever seen. I think it was $14.50 for a couple of 4" x 1" pieces of fish. It came with a small serving of fries. Be prepared to pay for the view, not the food. Its basically for tourists who don't mind paying the high prices.
Maybe a good place to drop by for a quick coffee or snack with a good view, but probably not a place to expect to dine out. Waiters seemed so tired and no quality services were provided, no wonder because only two of them were covering such many tables. Ordered hamburgers came to table after 40 min waiting, lukewarm cold, which made me guessing that foods were probably forgotten in the kitchen while waiters were busy serving other tables. And the price was the five star restaurant price ($18) but quality was no better than McDonald...no...not a good restaurant, I would probably never try again.
My boss and I had come here during the summer 2010 and I loved the view from our unclean table. Kind of shabby looking restaurant that could certainly use some cleaning and sprucing up. The entire draw of this restaurant could ONLY come from the view, certainly not from the food they serve. Mediocre at best. I'm embarassed that tourists would think that this is the type of food that you get in Vancouver, when almost any restaurant in the city could do better....including Rotten Ronnie's (Mc's). Also way to expensive!
what a location for restaurant. people come , enjoy scene,weather,service but food disappoints , went today 3 .30 to restaurant and there was a small que but sad every one took ice cream not too much food , i had one vegetarian burger , was served in few minutes and with a very big smile , nice staff and great location , but burger disappointed me bit , it could have more flavor, fries were nice and crispy,
love to go there again but may be for ice cream this time , food can be better.
My girlfriend and I went there today for our first and last time. I am not at all pleased for I had higher expectations. My girlfriend ordered Alfredo, and I ordered a burger, clam chowder and chicken strips to share. The burger was massive but a Big Mac is even by far more satisfying.. (And I don't particularily like Big Macs) The clam chowder was colder than the slice of watermelon garnish that came with the burger. The chicken strips were so dry that I don't see how I could have swalloed it without the plum sauce. And I don't know about the Alfredo, but by the looks of my gf's slow eating and doodling with her fork spinning it, I can't say much good about that either.
The service was okay, we couldn't finish our $45 completely unsatisfying meal so we asked politely if they can pack it for us so the waitress said, "I'll get you a box." Maybe it's just me because I'm used to restaurants doing it for you so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.
As fas as ambiance goes. I felt it was quite unsanitary and dull.. I may be saying this only because I've expected more but I just wasn't feeling it. We sat outside to enjoy the sun and about 6 tables away from us, there was a raccoon on the table picking at the sugar packages. (Along with the 4 other raccoons just outside of the foyer, but they weren't doing much, just enjoying the cameras and the attention.
Overall, this is a tourist restaurant so they can get a view of the river and the cars crossing Lion's Gate.. Not like we've never seen a bridge and a river before, right?
This is one of the biggest rip-offs I can think of. Whatever beautiful view you get with your meal doesn't make up for the atrocious food. I had a chicken burger, which I expected to be a chicken breast, NOT a breaded enlarged McNugget. I had to say I expected a better burger from a place like this, but all you get is a plain white bun, a slather of mayo, a wheel of tomato and a couple leaves of lettuce, topped off by that horrible chicken patty. If you're in Stanley Park, its worthwhile to spend a few extra bucks and head to Sequoia Grill or the Fish house, for lunch anyway.
This is a bona fide Vancouver getaway. Lookout has the best view of North shore and Lion’s gate bridge that all know. What is new to me is the indoor patio with huge panoramic window with incredible view even on a cloudy day.
Service is welcoming, relaxed and relaxing that goes hand in hand with the rustic and tranquil ambiance.
Food is terrific. Calamari, grilled salmon and fish n chips were the best we had in a long time.
In one word, it was a “GREAT” experience.
I went there with my mom as she loves salmon, and last year we had some that she was still remembering yet.
So she ordered a "Cedar plank salmon".
I had some "Mac and Cheese salmon".
When the food arrived, she noticed that there was no cedar plank, and the salmon was not cooked enough.
My Mac and cheese were disgusting, as the sauce was very oily and the taste was far from good !!!
My mom asked for the salmon to be cooked again. It came back cooked, but the taste was not the one she expected : not even average, just simply poor !
After we realized that the food was that bad, we paid a very expensive bill... and left with a feeling that we just wasted our time there !
If you think you'd like to eat there, think twice !!!
My advice : avoid the place if you like descent food...
There is no way paying that amount of money for such an awful food !!!
Enjoyed only a coffee and cake -cappacino, mocha, latte with family but scenery and location is gorgeous. It is behind the souvenirs shop and other cafe. This restaurant feels open air but you have comfy booths, and if you wish you can line up and get your own food or have a server come to you either way. The hot coffees were good and the barista and staff friendly.
I've been to the Prospect Point Cafe twice, both times for brunch. The food is excellent, for brunch at least. The location, for me, is the real draw however. It has a wonderful view and a lovely woodsy setting.
