Profile Last Updated: September 08, 2008
Located at Ferguson Point, the western most tip of Stanley Park, this is a restaurant for romantic dinners and lazy conversations after woodland walks. You arrive from a stroll, anticipating a brunch of grilled quail sandwich. If you've walked a lot further, there are sustaining entrees like steak and eggs. If you drove, try lighter nibbles like croissants, carrot & ginger soup, or even greens with lemon & virgin oil.
Focus Among Beauty
With views to distract the taste buds, you could perhaps forgive executive chef Shayne Shepard for less than outstanding offerings. But the menus are tuned to several moods and hungers – for example, the light bites menu carries a suggestive wine choice. A Rothschild sauvignon blanc might go with sockeye salmon, or a Quails' Gate gewürztraminer might wash down chicken liver pâté, and lubricate lazy conversations.
Take A Break Among The Trees
You might take a little interlude outside, planning to return for the dessert menu. The liquids are served by the glass, including ice wine, and no less than ten ports, a drink rarely served in Vancouver restaurants. Strange: you would think it would be a favourite for rainy afternoons. Solid sweet stuff includes mango compote, a selection of sorbets, choux pastries and crème brulée.
If you start conventionally rather than segue from afternoon snacks, you might encounter the cocktails and martinis, single malts, a dry kirsch, and even Calvados. Entrees have West Coast stars like halibut, salmon some tuna and ling cod. Small plates are fish, with one mushroom dish. The short pasta list has spinach and artichoke ravioli, and a fresh pea risotto.
