Cannery Seafood House

The Cannery Seafood House is one of the very best places for seafood dishes in Vancouver (pronounced “Vancoover”).

This is an upscale restaurant located right at the Port of Vancouver.

It looks rather modest from the outside and inside the restaurant walls are paneled in wood that was recovered from a local 100 year old barn. The restaurant is decorated in a nautical theme with things like crab traps and gill nets.

The menu features both local and imported seafood including cod, snapper, sole, Alaska king crab, Louisiana swordfish and lobster from Nova Scotia.

The Cannery Seafood House is one of a growing number of restaurants that are practicing something called sustainable seafood choices. What that means is that they are in a program with the Vancouver Aquarium where they remove one item on the menu that is an unsustainable seafood choice and highlight a sustainable one.

Sustainable seafood is seafood that is plentiful and that’s harvested with little damage to the habitat.

At the cannery you can even arrive for lunch or dinner by boat. The restaurant has it’s own floating dock. Make a reservation though because it’s popular and space is limited.

Dining at the Cannery Seafood House you’ll be facing the harbour and the mountains on the North Shore and it feels like you are actually on the water. At night time the harbour is full of little lights and it’s very romantic.

With more than 5,000 places to eat, Vancouver is considered one of the top places on the continent to have a meal out for both variety and quality.
