Profile Last Updated: May 21, 2008
Tucked away in West Vancouver village, Saltaire Restaurant and Terrace boasts a view of the stunning skyline, Stanley Park, the ocean and beach from every seat in the house. This “upstairs restaurant” seats more than 150 between the lounge area, proper dining room and third floor summertime patio. Tall tables, a full bar and TV’s fill the lounge and make it a casual place to hang out when hockey games grace the screens. To the right of the lounge, a 90-seat dining area with an earthy feel – wood and copper accents, granite bar tops and an open kitchen for patrons to watch their delicious meals being cooked – all contribute to the classy West Coast feel.
Burn Baby, Burn
The menu choices follow suit with the atmosphere – simple, classic and fresh. The menu offers more than 20 appetizers, main dishes of fresh seafood, pastas, steaks and more to satisfy every size appetite. Saltaire’s wood burning forno oven churns out fresh pizzas and pastas nightly while the chef works his magic in the kitchen bringing his French flair into the cuisine. Food lovers come back time and again for the grilled salmon, forno oysters and fettuccine with grilled scallops and prawns to name a few favourites. To complement the food, BC wines are carried in-house and sold by the bottle, ½ litre and single glass. The bar also serves up delicious martinis – the Asian pear in particular won an award for being “pear-fect!” in Vancouver Lifestyle Magazine. For those who have a sweet tooth, Saltaire offers a list of decadent choices including orange and espresso tiramisu, red wine poached spiced pear, cheesecake and a long list of chocolate delights. Prices are reasonable – especially with such a variety to choose from.
Groovy Rooftop Dining
As if delicious food and gorgeous atmosphere weren’t enough – there is live entertainment too. Every Friday night, a solo guitarist or a male-female duet takes the stage to sing or play everything from rock n’ roll to soft contemporary jazz. The summertime patio, which won “best patio” in the Northshore news in 2005, has a fireplace, teakwood tables and tiled stone flooring giving it a warm, inviting yet, casual atmosphere. Decorated with hanging flower baskets and heat lamps for those breezy summer nights – the patio is sure to please even the toughest critic. The restaurant venue is popular with sports celebrities and handles everything from wedding receptions and business lunches to casual dining among friends. Reservations come highly recommended.
