One of my favourite places to visit in Greater Vancouver is Granville Island.Granville and Burrard Street Bridges. In my humble opinion, "Bridges" (the yellow building top center) is one of the best restaurants on the island and I've had the pleasure of dining there many times. When Liz (from Swansea, Wales)(of http://liz-and-harvey.blogspot.ca/) came to visit, we had lunch on the patio right by the water. Not only did we get a photo of us, but also of the gargantuan blueberry shortcake dessert!
Granville Island is The Docksider that offers casual fine dining in a stunning setting. Set right on the water, floor to ceiling windows allow panoramic views of downtown Vancouver all the way to the mountains beyond. There's gracious and friendly service, a glorious menu, and desserts worthy of a gourmet!
Check out what I had when I took my daughter there for her birthday lunch!Public Market is the jewel in the crown of Granville Island! It showcases the finest of gastronomic delights like seafood, warm baked goods, fresh plump fruit, cheeses, flowers and more.
Granville Island is, without a doubt, a must-see destination if you're visiting this gorgeous city! Park your car and simply walk everywhere. Aromas abound from the bakeries scattered throughout and you will want to pop into the brewery, the book shops, the art shops, the kids' building, etc. But if you feel the need to sit for a bit, simply go over to the water's edge and hail an aquabus. You'll really enjoy the ability to view the scenery from a different perspective.
If you embark or disembark near Bridges Restaurant, you will also see buskers performing for locals and tourists alike. Also, you'll see other free and glorious entertainment throughout the area. Watch out for sea gulls though - they are almost tame! Here are some shots that may give you a giggle.
