Profile Last Updated: September 08, 2008
The Sandbar has a whole new level, which is a 95 seat deck open year round that has its own bar, three fireplaces plus a heated floor, and is designed to match the Granville Bridge. Downstairs is spacious, with an open kitchen, plenty of lounge seats, water views and a small dance floor. At 300 total, and serving fresh seafood and fish in the heart of Vancouver's world-famous Granville Island, The Sandbar is perched over the waterfront with views of the Granville Market bustle, boating on False Creek and Vancouver's West End.
West Coast Culture
The main dining room displays art from Emily Carr, while the open kitchen gives guests a view of chefs preparing seafood. The Crush Wine Lounge houses over 1,800 choices. The “Hot Spot” of the room is the Teredo Bar, with a springy wooden dance floor. DJs spin music Wednesdays through Saturdays.
The seafood menu boasts something for everyone's taste. Special menus include tapas, and a wok menu includes spicy squid and Pad Thai. Chilled seafood platters have oysters fresh on the half shell, and The Sand Barge features jumbo prawns, oysters and crab.
Hoshi Sushi Menu
A restaurant within a restaurant has sashimi, maki sushi (rolls), assorted sushi and nigiri sushi. Drinks include sake and plum wine.
Fresh Fish Menu
From live tanks come 12 kinds of oysters, while 16 species of grilled fish include Alaskan black cod, sea bass and mahi-mahi. Fried options include monkfish and Arctic char. Desserts are limited by comparison, but include sorbet terrine and a cheese plate. The wine list has sections for Chardonnay, Pinot, Fume, and Sauvignon, while well-represented reds are Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
