Ancora – Downtown Vancouver

I literally googled “top restaurants for birthdays” and this was one of it AFTER I modified the query to have “Vancouver” in it. Originally, the top choice was McDonald’s. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

#V-STAR Rating

Variety: 8.5/10 – There’s a lot of variety for seafood stuff. I believe there were one or two meat dishes that you can get. You can get basic steak for your entrée but everything else was practically seafood (except for the Beef tartare

Service: 8/10 – The host was quick to help us and seat us. Our server was super nice and friendly. It took some time to get our things or order – possibly because our server was super busy with other tables (it was quite packed). We were thinking maybe the atmosphere or style is supposed to be slow because you’re supposed to enjoy your drinks and scenery?

Taste: 9.5/10 – I am NOT a huge fan of raw food. I probably should have done more research and read the menu properly, since a few of our dishes were rawer than I expected. To my surprise, they were all really delicious.

Atmosphere: 10/10 – The patio is super pretty. The view outside the patio is amazing. You can watch the sunset. You can look at the calm water (ish). The inside is very white/modern/clean look. The upstairs is so elegant-looking. Just magnificent…

Reasonably Priced: 7/10 – Super duper over priced. Very high end. But I guess you are paying for the quality of the food? I don’t think the 6 pieces of sushi rolls was worth $14. Again, I think the fancy setting, atmosphere, service, quality of the seafood is taken into account for the price… *shrugs* ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Overall, I would not come here again but I would highly recommend you come here at least once. If I were to come here again, it would be more to enjoy the scenery/sunset etc. Or if I had rich friends, I would want a birthday dinner here because of the pretty private room they have upstairs. 🙂
