Restaurants (Eating Out)

(The page will be updated in January 2011, we will prepare a map with recommended places to eat nearby our festival venues)

Vancouver is well-known on the west coast for its finest restaurants and a big variety of Asian cuisine. It is now said that Vancouver has the finest chinese food outside of China. (We would especially recommend Richmond for that).
Apart from Asian food you can find restaurants of a variety cuisines from Greek to Arabic.
