Cafe Pacifica – Downtown Vancouver

Went here during Dine Out 2016 in January as one of my birthday dinners. Everything we ordered on the menu wasn’t what was actually expected. Now it’s not necessarily a bad thing…

For example: for the appetizer, I got one of the BBQ duck dishes. My assumption was that it was a solid – what came out was soup with a couple fine pieces of BBQ duck.. I did not mind the taste, but my friend would say otherwise. Then we thought the main dish with short ribs would have bones, but when the dish came out, it was boneless and I am not complaining! It was so tender, so soft, so delicious despite my perception of short ribs!

“V-STAR” Rating:

Variety – N/A: went here during dine-out for the dine-out menu so there wasn’t much to pick from; thus, I cannot actually give an honest rating for variety.

Service – 7/10: Our waitress left us alone for too long, but we think it’s because she thought we wanted to wait for our 3rd party. It got much busier so it took awhile to get the bill. Regardless, she was very friendly.

Taste – 9/10: I personally enjoyed the BBQ Duck Consomme and the Hoisan glazed Short ribs. It was cooked to perfection! My mouth is watering just thinking about it ..

Atmosphere – 9/10: very nice. pleasant view if you’re by the windows. a little quiet if there isn’t a lot of people, but there’s live piano music playing ..

Reasonably Priced? – 7/10: Personally, it’s a little overpriced for the portion you get. Sometimes I feel like the extra cost is the effort of designing the plate and putting that last garnish to complete the picture.

I probably wouldn’t go here again or for the regular menu, but I would recommend coming here at least once (probably during Dine Out)!
