A nice glass lined eatery and bar, with creative food elements that borrow from American, Mexican and Oriental cuisines among others. Creates a niche for the restaurant. The bar has a variety of drinks on offer including of course a wine list. We opted for...More

A drive to Port Moody was really a disappointment. There's nothing there! We found the local park area which consisted of a boardwalk/pier to walk out & the Boardwalk restaurant. Open since 1981, we popped in for a drink & some sweet potato fries. Server...More

I can recommend the crab cakes and the tuna tacos as starters, both delicious. Unfortunately, the quality/taste of my grilled salmon (on the mixed seafood plate) was not a 100% satisfying - my partner ordered the same dish and his salmon tasted better. But all...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along

There is none. Street and regular parking around. However, they have valet which is extremely reasonable especially considering how much you would pay for regular parking.

Sorry, I don't recall if they had gluten free but as others have said, you should be able to find their menu on line.
