Thanks to Vancouver's mild weather it's not uncommon to enjoy eating outside throughout the year–even if it is with the help from patio heaters. From urban fine dining to casual outdoor eateries, the options are plentiful when it comes to outdoor eats. Pair great food with epic views and it's easy to see why Vancouverites love dining outdoors.
You know it's officially summer when Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House opens up their beautiful rooftop patio–it's truly one of the best in the city. Despite it's location on one of Vancouver's busiest streets, when you're up on the patio you feel as though you're in a garden outside of the city. While you enjoy the warm air, tuck into freshly shucked oysters, a cold glass of white and wistfully dream that this moment could last forever.
For casual outdoor dining, Go Fish! by Granville Island will satisfy your seafood cravings while ocean air breezes by. There are a number of tables at Go Fish!, but you can also take your food to go and enjoy it along the Seawall on a bench or nice patch of grass.
Celebrating something special? Giardino Restaurant's fine dining Italian cuisine and outdoor patio makes for a dreamy combination that's ideal for date nights and special occasions.
