Knowledgeable staff regarding all of the wines. Loved the Blanc de Noir 2018 "champagne". It was definitely worth the price of $85 - just an incredible sparkling wine comparable to Veuve or better.

About the restaurant
Simple, fresh, local and handcrafted. Our waterfront Vancouver restaurant, ARC, is the perfect West Coast Setting to enjoy urban artisan food. Made with locally sourced ingredients, some from our very own rooftop herb garden and beehives, our food is rivaled only by our stunning harbour and mountain views.

A larger food selection on the menu with a reduced wine list would make selection easier.

About the restaurant
Providing Vancouver with very good Chinese-ish food since 2010.

Bao Bei is a unique restaurant in Chinatown that cultivates casual intimate dining experiences by providing small plates meant to be shared amongst a group of friends and family. Influences are taken from Taiwan and Shanghai but we are also inspired by a range of global flavours that form a more modern approach to Chinese cooking. We also love a good stiff cocktail and a nice glass of gamay to go with our food so we’ve taken great care to create distinctive libations and to curate a nice little list of wines for you.

The food at Bao Bei was an interesting asian-adjacent culinary experience. We had the family course dinner for a business group. There were wonderful and diverse flavors though the seasoning was very clearly intended for a western culinary palate, biased toward sweet rather than spicy flavors. Portions were adequate and the cocktails were really inventive and fun. I have to admit I was expecting a more authentic high-end Chinese meal, but what we had was delightful and quite memorable.

Enjoyed our server, was attentive and knowledgeable and certainly not afraid to share his perspective on which meals were best. He also spent time, listened and quietly observed - was on top of pretty much everything - even down to the ice in our water.

Great overall experience- equivalent to dining at a high end restaurant without the high end price tag. Delightful service from eager students in training, under expert guidance from the instructor of front-of- the- restaurant. Just keep in mind it's a training facility and appreciate the relaxing pace. The food is top notch, great quality and impressively prepared and presented. All in all, a hidden gem that we'll be returning to for another meal soon.

About the restaurant
Lucky Taco is a semi-authentic taqueria steps from the beach in the heart of Kitsilano. We offer delicious tacos and small plates prepared with well-raised meats, sustainable seafood, and local seasonal produce.

Our bar serves an excellent selection of Mexican and local beers, as well as an impressive list of tequila & mezcal served straight up, in flights, or with freshly pressed juices in Vancouver's very best margaritas. Bright, delicious flavours, exceptional value and fantastic daily specials make Lucky Taco as good as casual Mexican gets in Vancouver!
