This is not in the "best restaurant in Vancouver" category, but it's always fun to go there when you're on Granville Island. Day or night, inside or out, I've never been disappointed.
Wednesday night is baby-sitter night !... yayyy !!!! :-)
So that's why the review are flowing in those days ;-)
But let's come back to bridges....
As my mom is in town, and we have this monsters-free night, I was looking for something with a nice view... and nice beer !
So we decided to go to Bridges, and try it out.
The view is as nice as it gets.... especially in the evening.
The service was also very good. Full of nice attention and very friendly.
As it is a little pricey for the food you get, stars went from 5 to 4.
Let's talk about the food now.
It was actually pretty good. I was pleasantly surprised, especially after reading some reviews. But I have to admit that we always run away from burgers and fish and chips, so I guess that it helps :-)
Out of three entrees, two were very nice, but one of them was overcooked. And an overcooked fish, being french, removes one star !
So that's why I went for the three stars and not the four stars.
May be a little bit rough. Especially because we were nicely surprised by the deserts.
One cheese cake and one chocolate tart. both of them were very good (even though i'm pretty sure they are not done by their kitchen).
Overall a very nice evening. A tad over priced, but such a nice view....

We dined there the other night and the service could not have better and the food and drink... more
