In pole position: Miku restaurant. This restaurant offers Aburi style cuisine with excellent food quality. If you are a true sushi or sashimi lover, you have to try this place!
Miku restaurant is my favourite in Vancouver, for the quality of its food. You can feel the freshness of the fish. The flavors are incredible, and although the price is a bit higher than a normal restaurant (and the portions are smaller) it’s very worthy!
The service is very attentive, the great atmosphere allows you to relax and enjoy the experience, but most importantly, the food quality will surprise you! The cherry on the cake? You can with a view to the harbour. I’m sure that if you try Miku restaurant once, you’ll be back!
You can enjoy the tasty food even more adding a glass of white wine or champagne.
If you are starving and you´re looking for something cheap, this is not the right place for you today. Miku is the place to go when you are ready to treat yourself!

Located in Yaletown, Blue Water Cafe has been rated by users the second best restaurant on TripAdvisor. This is how Blue Water coffee is described on its website:
“We are committed to stock up on sustainable seafood and to develop innovative and memorable dishes from the West Coast. Our Raw Bar exudes a true Japanese culinary aesthetic, consistently offering pure and clean flavours and unique presentations. ”
“A lively meeting place for locals and visitors, our bar offers an imaginative and diverse cocktail list, as well as one of the most extensive selections of spirits in the city.

Sushi Bar Maumi is the favourite of Collen H.A | a.k.a The Sushi Foodie. “A Vancouver girl in a committed relationship with sushi”, as she describes herself on her Instagram of more than 9,500 followers.
Collen H.A explains that this is the only restaurant that uses fish imported directly from Japan. Sushi Bar Maumi has a wide variety of fish, some of which cannot be found in any other restaurant in Vancouver.
Here you can have an authentic Japanese omakase, you will be amazed by the view of your chef cooking right in front of you each piece of nigiri, right before serving. The beauty of this restaurant is the menu: since only fresh fish is used to make the dishes, the menu changes every night!
