We really liked The Sandbar under the Granville Island bridge - the food & service was good and it has a nice outdoor seating area with good views

I haven’t been yet (also going this summer), but we’ve had Cardero’s at Coal Harbour recommended to us.

Oh thank you both!... I'd looked at The Sandbar and it looks promising!... Will look into Cadero's too!!

Oh, and if you are up early, definitely go to Jam Cafe for breakfast - but be there as soon as it opens as it gets a queue really quickly! Was our favourite place we ate in Vancouver - sorry, I know that wasn't what you were asking for but had to recommend!

Just went to Carderos for my birthday meal last week! You can't book from 5-8;30 and they said there could be a long wait. So we took books, ordered drinks and after two sips our table was ready. Lovely fairly reasonably priced food and a really cute way of telling you that your table is ready (won't spoil it!)

Hi! I live in the vancouver area smile we have four kids (ages 5yrs thru 9mths). I would definitely recommend anywhere on Granville Island...Sandbar, Granville Island Hotel, Bridges. The island has a super playground, kids shopping market and spray park too so you can entertain the kids before or after. Vancouver restaurants are all fairly kid friendly (ie: no ones going to turn you away) and the seafood is amazing even at cheaper places.

I don't suppose you're anywhere around Winchester/London area? We are coming in August for 10 days to visit my husband's grandfather and are trying to find a way to exchange some toys for our vacation...we'd be happy to lend out some things to you! Just thought I'd check smile let me know if you have any other questions...four kids in and we are expert at the vancouver-with-kids scene, lol.

Louise Canada... Aww! Sorry I've only just seen your message! Sorry! We're nowhere near Winchester!... I'd loved to have helped you out!... Even though my 3 are in their teens!....
Thanks for the advice... I'm having a little bit of a panic at the moment as I'm not a huge traveller and I need to remind myself we're not going to the moon!... Also our vancouver Island Airbnb just cancelled us the other day... Furious does not even begin to cover it... (please no Airbnb disaster stories please! That will put me more into a spin!!)... We've found somewhere else.. But you know what it's like when you think you've got it all set and well planned!..
Good look with your Winchester trip!... Thanks for advice!... Might well be in touch! Its nice to have local knowledge!! smile
