Vancity Buzz Kitsilano Patio Guide 2015
By Vancity Buzz
The Galley Patio & Grill
This beachside restaurant makes for perfect outdoor dining, with a magnificent view of city skyline and the water. People watching on this patio means watching windsurfers and sailboats. This is probably one of the best views in Vancouver.
This Cantina-style spot serves great Mexican food. The beach is right down the street from Las Margaritas — so pop by their beautiful patio for some of the city's best salsa, margaritas and BC's largest selection of tequila.
Here's a pretty obvious pick. Pretty much everyone knows the Local. It's always super busy, and you're always pushing to get a seat before it's all taken. The Local gets points for being the “go to” in Kits but loses points for being so damn packed all the time!
Hapa Izakaya has received multiple awards for its Japanese cuisine. Hapa is open from 5:30 p.m. every day and has a delicious menu covering all tastes. Its Kits location features a medium-sized patio great for hang outs and very close to the beach.
The Naam Restaurant is a great vegetarian-friendly restaurant, which also has a variety of soy-free, gluten-free and sugar-free options. Naam's patio is quietly hidden away from street and traffic noise, and the place is uniquely open 24 hours, seven days a week.
The Boathouse has a tradition of setting up its restaurant locations with a beautiful waterfront view, and this goes for its Kits location as well. You get a beautiful view of the beach and water from a second-floor patio.
