Vancouver (British Columbia)
We are committed to sourcing sustainable seafood — and crafting innovative and memorable West Coast dishes. Our Raw Bar exudes a true Japanese culinary aesthetic, consistently delivering pure, clean flavours and unique presentations.
The striking dining room provides active views of the “East meets West” kitchen and Raw Bar. The sweeping main bar leads out to the heated patio and the private dining rooms, which hold our deep and diverse wine collection.
Housed in a handsome brick and beam heritage warehouse conversion, Blue Water Cafe is in the heart of the historic and vibrant Yaletown neighbourhood.
As Vancouver’s premier seafood restaurant, Blue Water Cafe’s international reputation for excellence is founded on serving only the freshest and most sustainable wild coastal species. Drawing on lengthy relationships with trusted suppliers, executive chef Frank Pabst’s disciplined technique showcases local fin and shell fish, as well as his legendary “Seafood Tower”. Pabst’s repertoire also delves deeper, with his critically-acclaimed “Unsung Heroes” menu which features other delicious but often overlooked fish, many of which can also be found at the restaurant’s appealing Raw Bar.
All our seafood is delivered to our kitchen daily and only the absolute freshest, exceptional quality fish and shellfish are selected. Most of them are line caught, trap caught or sustainably farmed in our region. Our commitment is to procure and serve responsibly sourced seafood without compromising our ocean habitat.
Executive Chef, Frank Pabst
