Fish House in Stanley Park

Back in November of last year, we stopped by the Fish House in Stanley Park for lunch.  It’s been years since we last visited this restaurant located next to the tennis courts.  Being a touristy spot, I was worried that it would be busy at lunchtime but I guess the rain kept everyone away because we were the first ones there (a few diners did eventually arrive a bit later).

Aside from the food, one of the reasons why people come here is for the gorgeous view.

Our waiter brought us out some complimentary Bread and Butter with Lobster Oil and Balsamic Dipping Sauce.  It’s been ages since we had lobster oil (back when the Cannery was still open) and I can’t believe how much I missed it.

We wanted to try a little bit of everything so we ordered the Hot Platter ($39).  In the centre of the platter was Mussels with chorizo surrounded by Avocado Spring Rolls, Fried Oysters, Dungeness Crab Cakes, and Buttermilk Calamari.  The spring rolls had a nice crispy wrapper that contrasted nicely with the buttery soft avocado.  I think my favourite part of this platter was the calamari (they weren’t rings but curled up steaks).

We decided to stick with something a bit lighter for our other dish and ordered the Cobb Salad ($17) which actually comes on a large plate with iceberg lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, grilled onions, avocado, hard-boiled eggs, free range chicken breast chunks, and bacon.

It was such a lovely meal that we decided to end it with the Lavender Vanilla Crème Brûlée ($8).  The crème brûlée was actually just regular crème brûlée but came with lavendar vanilla cookies.

Now that we know where we can find some tasty seafood, I can see us coming back here quite often (especially for the bread and lobster oil).
