9 great places to eat in Fairview

Jun 24 2022, 6:58 pm

Fairview – the Vancouver neighbourhood that is bound by 16th Avenue in the south, Cambie Street to the east, Burrard Street to the west, and False Creek to the north – was just named the best neighbourhood in Canada for a night out.

While this distinction remains dubious to nearly everyone, that doesn’t mean Fairview isn’t home to some of the city’s tastiest eats.

From cocktail bars to vegetarian spots, French pastries to Japanese BBQ, there truly is a bit of everything in this neighbourhood.

Lively nightlife? Not so much. Fantastic food? Absolutely.

These are our picks for the best places to eat in Fairview.

This “pretty fast food” joint on Granville Island is both a tourist attraction and a local favourite.
