Vancouver’s P2B Bistro Restaurant

P2B Restaurant + Bar

P2B Bistro & Bar is in the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront on W. Hastings Street in downtown Vancouver. It’s a great restaurant with a casual style and live music.

The restaurant offers live music on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 5:30 to 9:00 pm and daily breakfast until 11:30am. It’s an exceptional restaurant for hotel guests, but also for anyone looking for a nice place to enjoy West Coast dishes and chilled cocktails.

What do we like about the P2B Bistro & Bar? There are a number of things. For one, it’s in a prime location, right in the heart of downtown, and close the Vancouver Convention Centre. Second, the food is really good! It’s a West Coast-style restaurant with a variety of menu items, from premium Ocean Wise seafood to steak, pasta and pizza, plus prime rib on Sundays (a popular favourite). We have always been impressed with the food and service at P2B Bistro and look forward to keep going back.

Prices at the restaurant are reasonable for what you get, and especially so between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm. The last time we went, Happy Hour highballs and draft beers were just $6, and 5 oz glasses of wine are $7. The restaurant environment is very nice, with massive windows and natural light. On warm days, the outdoor patio is lovely. Located inside the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront, P2B Restaurant is the perfect spot for any occasion and highly recommended.

Happy Hour & Kids’ Menus

The restaurant’s bar serves an impressive selection of beers and cocktails. There are also white and red wines to enjoy by the glass or by the bottle. Happy Hour runs daily between 3:00 and 6:00 pm. During this time, select alcoholic beverages are on sale along with some starter dishes and a charcuterie board.

P2B’s kids’ menu is for children ages 12 and under. For breakfast, younger folk can enjoy a stack of pancakes, French toast or cereal. The other option is a traditional dish with egg, toast, bacon and hashbrowns. The breakfast menu items come with a fruit cup and a choice of milk or juice.

Ocean Wise Seafood at the P2B Bistro

Ocean Wise Seafood LogoAnother thing we really like about the P2B Bistro is the fact that the restaurant serves Ocean Wise seafood. Not only does their chowder, prawns, salmon, halibut and lingcod all taste delicious, but the fish and shellfish are harvested in a sustainable and environmentally-responsible manner. Their Ocean Wise menu items aren’t from industrial farms or caught by fish factories that cause damage to the ocean floor or other marine life unnecessarily. This means you can enjoy the delicious seafood and not have a guilty conscience!

Ocean Wise is a great program that encourages environmentally-friendly fishing practices. More restaurants like the P2B Bistro should ensure that their seafood menu options are caught sustainably. Whenever and wherever you eat out, be sure to look out for the Ocean Wise logo!

Our Experience & Recommendations

We’ve eaten at the P2B Bistro & Bar a number of times and always had a pleasant experience. We’ve also eaten at the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront during conferences and events.

Menu items we’ve had at the restaurant recently (as of June 2023) include the West Coast Seafood Chowder and House Smoked Brisket. Both were amazing! The soup was the best seafood chowder we can remember ever having in fact. It was that good! The brisket was also impressive. It literally melted in your mouth!

Other tasty items we’ve had from their menu and can recommend include the Crisp Apple Salad, Cedar Plank Maple Sockeye Salmon, Haida Gwaii Halibut, New Zealand Lamb Chops & Scallop, and Chicken Mushroom Penne. We’ve also had the La Panza Olive Oil Cake and their ice cream. All were delicious! The next time we go we’ll likely order the Mixed Grill Platter which comes with smoked brisket, lamb, lemongrass chicken, tiger prawns, cooked vegetables and mashed potatoes. That will be awesome to share! We love it when you can try a variety of different things.

From our experience, the service at the P2B Bistro is excellent. The waiters are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Our food has always been hot and tasty, and brought out in a timely manner. We’ve also found the recommendations of our server to be very valuable, both for the food and our drinks to go with it.
