The Prow Restaurant

The popular restaurant was located at the end of Canada Place and had a stunning view of the Coal Harbour area and across to the North Shore. It was shut down because of an expansion at Canada Place. Five Sails now occupies the Pan Pacific Hotel as the main restaurant.

Carlos ‘N Bud’s

This greatly missed restaurant served Tex Mex style cuisine that was loved by many. It had awesome food specials and a great patio for hanging out. It was located at 1372 Seymour and 555 Pacific in downtown Vancouver. The owners lease expired in 2005 and the popular joint closed their doors. They have since opened a new Mexican-style restaurant in Ladner, called The Boot and Sombrero.

A Kettle of Fish

They closed their doors back in 2010 after 31 years in the business. It was located at 900 Pacific Street and focused on West Coast inspired cuisine.
