Vancouver boasts no shortage of superlative patios. But these ones take outdoor dining to the next level, literally.

The Salmon House on the Hill This long-running destination high above West Van boasts jaw-dropping vistas of downtown, Stanley Park and across to Vancouver Island. Alder-grilled salmon is a specialty. Go early for cocktails and appetizers on the discreet deck.

Seasons in the Park This partially covered and heated deck in the heart of Queen Elizabeth Park serves West Coast fare against a picturesque backdrop of downtown and the mountains.

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House Just a few steps above Robson’s hustle and bustle, this pampering roof garden obliges with a full menu, one of the city’s best selections of freshly shucked oysters, and crisp dry whites to match.
