For more than 35 years, the Salmon House has been serving up its famous alder-grilled salmon from a spectacular view location high up on a hill in the middle of West Vancouver’s ritzy British Properties. This restaurant has some of the best views in all of Greater Vancouver. But unlike many view restaurants, it also has excellent food. The building is designed in a classic West Coast style reminiscent of a native longhouse, with big windows and lots of cedar wood, dotted with First Nations artwork, including the etched glass windows of the bar, wall paintings of eagles and bears, totem poles, even a wooden canoe that hangs over the dining room. The menu features fairly traditional BC seafood dishes—the chefs and owners are huge supporters of all that is local and sustainable—including steamed Dungeness crab, an exceptional seafood tower for two, and, of course, the classic grilled salmon. A good BC-focused wine list rounds out the experience. The restaurant also serves a popular weekend brunch.
