Ten Restaurants That Will Make Your First Date Memorable

It’s your first date and you want it to be a night to remember, for both the food and your great time together. These recommendations should provide a bit of table side adventure with your evening meal.

Cactus Club Coal Harbour

Sit right by the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the harbour for an absolutely gorgeous and incomparable evening view. It will make anyone fall in love over a glass of wine and an entree.

Top of Vancouver Revolving Restaurant

You’ll be on the top of the world… well, at least the top of downtown Vancouver, enjoying the view from your castle as you and your date get to know each other.

Afghan Horsemen

For the sake of a unique, one-of-a-kind cultural experience, go on a Friday or Saturday night to enjoy belly-dancing performances over a hearty meal of dolma and kebobs. Floor seating is a great reason for sitting closer.

Rooftop Patio

We need a rooftop patio on this list! This one offers one of the best views in Vancouver, complete with Stanley Park, Canada Place, and the North Shore. Great during our short and sweet summertime season.

Salt Tasting Room

Something you could find only in Vancouver, located in the infamous “Blood Alley.” You get a meat and cheese tasting platter with a flight of matching wines. A restaurant for talking and getting to know one another in a casual and intimate environment, and as a bonus, you can explore historic Gastown afterward.

The Oakwood Canadian Bistro

The awesome atmosphere and great food here are worth checking out. If you draw a blank when it comes to first time conversation, the “sharing plates” style offers you the chance to get to know what your date likes to eat.

Provence Marinaside

If you love the water, this restaurant next to the beautiful marina is the romantic setting for you. After dinner on the patio, you can enjoy a walk along the seawall.

Lobby Lounge at Fairmont Pacific Rim

Super trendy and glamorous in complete modern white décor, you will feel like a million bucks just being there. Perfect for a dressy night around town.

Dockside on Granville Island

The spacious, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere has an awesome view with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water. It’s in the heart of Granville Island, for couples who like shopping, crafts, and places with historic character.

Kobe Japanese Steak and Seafood House

For those with Asian tastes, Kobe is a unique experience and a great place to spend an evening with your date. Enjoy the show as chefs transform your food into an art form using knife tricks and dancing flames. It’s dinner and a show!
