West Vancouver has many great eating establishments including some of the North Shore’s top restaurants, with some near the ocean and others up the hill.
Being a particularly wealthy neighbourhood, West Vancouver has an abundance of high-end eating establishments. Some of this North Shore community’s best places to eat and drink include the ones listed below.
BC BANS INDOOR DINING
On March 29th the provincial government banned all indoor restaurant dining for the three weeks between March 29th and April 19th. This is because of concerns about the recent rise of cases of COVID-19 and new variants of the virus.
If you want to eat restaurant food you’ll have to order takeout, get your meal delivered or find a place with an outdoor patio. Hopefully these restrictions are just temporary!
