Summertime Dining Out Vancouver Style

For summertime dining out Vancouver patios are perfect places to spend a few hours on a sunny afternoon or an early evening and well into the night.

Dining Out Vancouver

Everything always seems better when you're dining on a patio. It seems like food tastes better and people are more relaxed and friendly.

Vancouverites have a reputation for being laid back and casual so just imagine how popular dining out on a restaurant patio is in Vancouver especially when the sun's out.

You might say there are even patio wars where the restaurants compete unofficially to have their patio be the one that everyone comes to with the best food, the tallest drinks, the prettiest flower boxes, the most fun atmosphere and greatest wait staff.

Vancouver dining patios are popular places and some are booked a year in advance for an event. For instance you can count on any of the restaurant patios along the waterfront of English Bay to be booked way in advance for the fireworks festival.

The patio that fits your mood maybe the patio where you can do some people watching one that's a hidden spot or one that has an amazing view.

Dining Out Vancouver Patios

One of the best places for people watching along with your meal is the Water Street Cafe. The patio here is sidewalk level and you get a sense of an old European feel as you look out over the cobbled stone streets of Gastown.

For a little more out of the way spot go up to the patio at CinCin restaurant above Robson Street. This restaurant is known for celebrity diners so keep a look out for Hollywood stars filming movies in Vancouver.

When dining out isn't enough and you want a great view to go along with it the Raincity Grill is a perfect choice. This restaurant is located right across the street from English Bay where you are assured of a front and centre view of the harbour.

With so many great patios all over the city you are sure to find a favourite gem of your own.
