Situated along Vancouver’s picturesque False Creek seawall, Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio dishes up West Coast sustainable cuisine with Peruvian and Japanese flare.

The former home of C Restaurant has been transformed into a sleek, modern fine dining space. Embracing the city’s stunning waterfront landscape, Ancora’s contemporary design features a subtle yet sophisticated mix of soft blues, sand-inspired neutrals and light woods.

The comprehensive menu is built on the cornerstones of sustainable seafood, fresh and local ingredients, and uncommon international elements. The restaurant’s unique dishes combine flavours and techniques that embrace diverse cultures and show a deep understanding of the city’s culinary evolution. Guests can expect a mix of West Coast, punchy Peruvian-inspired meals, and artistic Japanese creations served fresh from the raw bar.

Ancora also boasts an exciting wine and cocktail menu that inspires balance and complements its flavourful cuisine. The wine list is structured to highlight the varietal, style and character, and catalogues some of the best B.C. wines and international vintners. The cocktail menu features an exciting mix of classic concoctions and specialty tipples for parched patrons to sip as they admire the pristine waterfront view.

The team leading Ancora’s front-of-house and kitchen brings together some of the city’s top culinary professionals, and their bevy of impressive resumes and international experience translates into a dazzling dining experience that is sure to impress guests.
