Shaughnessy Restaurant at VanDusen Gardens is located only minutes from downtown Vancouver, but upon arrival it’s as though you’ve entered another world. Our 145 seat garden restaurant provides a retreat like no other – casual elegance, soothing ambiance, and picturesque garden vistas. In addition to the restaurant, we also have a 75 seat covered patio, which has been said to be one of the best patios in the city. Whether you want to meet friends for lunch, enjoy brunch with family, spend an evening overlooking the gardens accompanied by a brilliant dinner, or have a spontaneous happy hour cocktail, Shaughnessy Restaurant is a must-see for visitors to Vancouver and residents alike. 55 acres of vast year-round gardens, representing the northern and southern hemispheres await you and drench your dining experience in colour and beauty.
Working with reputable local suppliers such as Fresh Roots Farms and Oceanwise, Shaughnessy uses fresh, organic, and seasonal ingredients to create an elegant West coast menu that tastes impeccable. Chef Matthew Phillip incorporates his extensive background of botanicals to his cuisine and incorporates the seasonal flavours and colours of the surrounding garden into his menu.
We cater to a variety of events throughout the year – wedding receptions, anniversaries, birthday, bar/bat Mitzvahs, family reunions, and corporate meetings. Exclusive restaurant bookings are available, and we can accommodate a variety of group sizes up to 200 people.
We teamed up with several renowned interior designers including Wade King, to create an airy yet intimate ambiance and décor. The slate and wood floor is reclaimed from a 1910 Vancouver warehouse which adds old-world charm and warmth. Intimate booths line the back walls with a beautiful Rhododendron painting taking presence above. French doors provide the opportunity for a private group dining room while still maintaining the bright openness of the restaurant. White shingles on the walls, ample skylights, and potted plants bring the lush Botanical Garden indoors, while floor-to-ceiling sheer drape swaths add drama, elegance and intimacy to the room.
