Sandbar is the same chain restaurant as Cardero's. Both are great choices if you like seafood.

This classy seafood restaurant has beautiful views over False Creek, but more importantly, the food is delicious. We had the Dine Out Vancouver festival special price fixe lunch. Everything was well seasoned.

If you are looking for fresh seafood this place is a must. Come summer or winter Granville Island is a treat to enjoy the magnificent views as well as great food. I tried the seafood pot amongst other things and can highly recommend it. Enjoy!

Most come here for the seafood, but I come here for their ribs. It's literally fall of the bone, tender and worth every finger-lick.

On the water, great seafood and west coast cuisine, dancing and music on weekend nights, outdoor patio overlooks the inlet.

On Granville Island, the only place we found to watch the FIFA women's World Cup match. The manager was so helpful in finding a place with two minors to watch the first game of the round of sixteen. Very good service and the food is a match. Recommended for a nice sit down place and respite from the tourist mobs on the island.

The Sandbar restaurant is amazing, for many different reasons. From the building itself to the surroundings to the music to the food, the Sandbar will have you drooling before you arrive and long after you leave. If you love seafood, definitely book some reservations at the Sandbar. It is quite romantic, and the building itself - which is flooded with natural light and has huge, tall ceilings - is a sight to behold. If you're lucky, you will experience this restaurant when the extremely talented pianist is playing, which makes the culinary experience that much more delightful. Set in Granville Island, you'll also have to explore the beautiful and bustling surroundings!

This is a nice restaurant with a fantastic view of False Creek and the Grandville Bridge. There's even a boat over the bar. Atmosphere aside, the food was good and the service friendly.

Great seafood place. They have really good seafood platter there. It's fresh and the bread you get in the beginning is awesome as you smear the butter and it melts right on it. But if you're looking for a peaceful quiet evening it's not the place. There is live music playing not sure every night, but the night we were there. Great atmosphere. Will go again.
