Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar in Yaletown is consistently awarded Best Seafood Restaurant in Vancouver. Part of the Toptable Group & The Aquilini Group. Blue Water Cafe is part of the dining enterprise along with Araxi in Whistler, CinCin, West, and Thierry Chocolaterie Patisserie. Blue Water Cafe is one of my favorite restaurants for fresh seafood. They have a great selection of Ocean Wise sashimi and sushi. Plus, I love me a seafood tower any day!
Seafood Tower 89: two tiers with oysters, prawns, seared red tuna, salmon tartare, jellyfish, scallop ceviche clams and mussels add chilled lobster (1lb) for 29.
We had the Blue Water Cafe Tower 149 last time for company Christmas party and it was ridiculously delicious. I love the assortment of fresh seafood and really two people can just have this for dinner and call it a night!
Stamina 19.50: fresh crab, barbecued eel, smoked salmon, sweet soy glaze. You could instantly taste the sweetness of fresh crab meat. Imitation crab has nothing on them!
Also on the plate are Nigiri sushi I always order. I love the giant sweet whole scallops and fatty Toro tuna belly. Hamachi yellow tail sushi is also one of my must orders!
Sablefish 36.50: flaky and fatty fish finished with miso sake glaze, baby bok choy, edamame, quinoa and shiitake mushrooms in yuzu dashi. Honestly, I don’t know why we order another entrée to share. We were so full after all the sushi and seafood tower. But this is such a wonderful dish to order if you don’t order overboard. Problem is, eyes wider than stomach.
We loved every experience at Blue Water Café. The wait staff is also very friendly and food arrives prompt. Sure the restaurant could use some renovations and the booth seats could be more firm, but Blue Water Cafe is one of the best restaurants in Vancouver. Book the cellar room for your private and group parties. The space is awesome!
