This old style European Hotel has a bar and restaurant right on English Bay. Food is so so, but the location can't be beat.

This quaint hotel overlooks English Bay and is a great place to visit with friends (other than when they have live entertainment - it is relatively quiet, so you can actually hear your company)

For an afternoon brunch in a locals secret spot. Somehow this place doesn't get the busy line ups that all the other restaurants get in English Bay. Keep it a secret!
