Fresh seafood is literally within arm's reach in Vancouver, and local restaurants take advantage of what's available. Albacore tuna, dungeness crab, multiple types of wild salmon, clams, oysters, and mussels are just a few of the Pacific Ocean's bounty that you'll find on menus around town.
Yaletown's Blue Water Cafe is the place to go when you're looking for a spectacular dinner that's complete with all of the bells and whistles. This fine dining restaurant has the best of both worlds by offering diners a raw bar that will satisfy your sushi and oyster cravings, and another menu that boasts warm and satisfying dishes.
Vancouver is known to have some of the best sushi in the world and there are a tonne of great options to choose from. For something that's unique to Vancouver, make sure to try Miku; they brought aburi-style sushi to the city. The view from Miku is an added bonus.
For something a little lighter on your wallet and more casual, The Fish Counter on Main Street is a delicious choice. It's half fish counter and half restaurant so you can grab something to eat and buy stuff to cook at home later.
If you feeling extra Canadian while you're in Vancouver, fresh oysters and a huge Caesar (the drink, not the salad) will qualify you as an honorary Canadian. Rodney's Oyster Bar is the place to quench your thirst and ease your hunger. With two locations in Vancouver, you've got options.
