We may drift in and out of June-uary weather here in Vancouver these days, but our patio game is fierce. It’s no wonder then that 14 Vancouver restaurant patios made a new list of the country’s best.
The list is OpenTable’s annual roundup of the 100 Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants in Canada, and its chosen based on feedback from their unique clientele.
It’s an interesting set of 14 spots, thanks to OpenTable’s niche for attracting users who tend to be more mature out-of-towners. That’s probably why some of Vancouver’s more laid-back patio spots–that don’t take reservations–are totally missing from the list.
Here are the 14 that made the cut this year:
Arms Reach Bistro
Bella Gelateria & Pizzeria
Blue Water Cafe
CinCin Ristorante + Bar Vancouver
Homer Street Cafe & Bar
Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House
The Keg Steakhouse + Bar – Multiple Locations
Seasons in the Park
Tableau Bar Bistro
The Teahouse Restaurant
West Oak Restaurant
You’ve got a hefty chunk of Yaletown spots, tourist-y spots, and familiar classics, for sure. Chances are your favourite patio is missing, or you’re looking for something a bit different.
If so, check out our 2017 patio guide, which spotlights the best of the best in Vancouver’s many ‘hoods, as well as in Metro Vancouver overall. Now, let’s get some drinks, snacks, and sunshine!
