Dine at Vancouver's Most Romantic Restaurants on Your Next Date Night

It doesn't matter if you've been together forever or you're newly coupled, spending time together with good food and a bottle of wine is still one of the best dates out there. If you're planning your next romantic meal, start with one of these Vancouver restaurants for a lovely evening. 

A solid French restaurant is a no-fail choice when it comes to romance. Vancouver is home to some really great French restaurants, but Les Faux Bourgeois really makes the heart (and belly) sing. The food is excellent, the wine list is juicy, and the atmosphere is lovely. The fact that the pricing is very reasonable is an added bonus.

If you're in the mood for caviar, oysters and bubbles, head to Ancora for dinner with a view. This seafood-centric restaurant seamlessly blends Peruvian and Japanese cultures on the locally sourced menu. It's perfect for something a little more fancy.

For vegetarians and those who enjoy plant-based eating, The Acorn on Main Street has your name on it. The dishes are beautiful and delicious, the cocktails are creative and tasty, and the space is super cozy. Mains hover around the $20 mark, making for a reasonably priced meal.
