1055 Canada Place, Vancouver
Advice: Many different areas of seating for larger and small groups alike. Reservations needed for large parties.
Sitting at the foot of the harbour overlooking Canada Place, this Irish public house not only offers great views of the North Shore and Burrard Inlet, they also offer a bustling dining area.
I have dined here on a few occasions, most recently I had their Irish Beer Sampler ($8.75) featuring 4 6oz glasses of each of the Guinness, Kilkenny, Smithwicks and Harp to have with their huge platter of Cheddar Jack Nachos ($21.90) tomatoes, jalapenos, pico de gallo salsa, sour cream and guacamole.
I love the outstanding Irish Stew ($19.95) slow simmered lamb shank and vegetables in a Guinness demi-glaze with mashed potatoes. I also have enjoyed the tender Braised Short Rib Sliders ($13.95) with garlic aioli and crispy onions; as well as the delicious Gnocchi ($14.95) handmade gnocchi, basil mushroom cream sauce, truffle oil and parmesan cheese.
I have only had one dessert as I am often quite full after dining here, I loved the hearty Butterscotch Sticky Date Pudding($7.95) with vanilla bean ice cream. You’ll find an authentic Irish experience along with Irish food, drink and music!
