Walking down from my hotel to English Bay to soak in its sunset – I walked along the waterfront and there on a corner was this busy place – Pirate Pub – it was packed and people waiting for tables. Located just under the Burrard Bridge.
So I asked the girls at the desk how long waiting time for a table – about 30 min – so I put my name down and walked on into the sunset.
The lawns and the beach where full of people – under a couple of big trees did a group of ladies practicing Hula-Hula dance. It was an absolute stunning evening and the sky was already starting to go red around 08.00pm. Understand why all the boats and yachts go out every beautiful evening to enjoy the famous English Bay sunset in Vancouver.
Returned to the restaurant before the sun had completely set – and still I had to wait about 15 min for a table. The place was loud and noisy – and still packed to the rim. I got a table outside at the waterfront.
Don’t think this is the place you come for a romantic dinner for 2 or any culinary adventure – you come for the buzz, fries and beer. I wasn’t going to make a post about this dinner adventure, but why not. Had a great evening with okay food. Didn’t leave hungry or unsatisfied – took it for what is – a fun and noisy place with comfort food that’s extremely popular.
My choices for the evening were – with that my usual sparkling and a glass of Oxford Landing Shiraz, Australia – a very good wine.
Calamari served with house made tzatziki
“Fork N’Knife” Burger, roasted mushrooms, caramelised onion, cheese curd and red wine gravy
My waitress was funny and very observant even if she was so busy … I paid cash so I don’t have a receipt, so I don’t have her name – and I can’t remember what the bill came to either, because my note book I forgotten back at the hotel, wasn’t meant that I should eat out – had planned to eat on the hotel. Around CA$45/US$45.00/€36.40/£28.90 – with a cappuccino and plus tax.
Calamari was good – and tzatziki perfect. Burger was massive and to eat burger with gravy was something totally new for me and it was tasty – fries were excellent. The whole experience were a lot of food and fun *smile
And if in Vancouver and maybe want to have a lively surrendering with your food and comfort prices – Pirate Pub is the place. 80% of the guests I would say were locals and that I think is a great sign.
As I was eating people was bicycling, jogging, walking and roller skating none stop along the water front and out on False Creek the yachts and boats where returning from their sunset cruise. A really great spot to enjoy a beautiful summer evening in Vancouver at. Fare away from tourists and close to the water that doesn’t cost a arm and a leg.
