What You'll Get
Welcome to Groupon, Vancouver! For our inaugural deal, $20 gets you $40 worth of food and drink at A Kettle of Fish, located downtown at 900 Pacific Street. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Vancouver: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theatre, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (25 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons or redeem them with our iPhone app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in three months. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
With today’s Groupon, $20 gets you $40 worth of fine seafood and drinks at A Kettle of Fish. A Kettle of Fish is open daily for dinner at 5:30 p.m.
Since opening in 1979, A Kettle of Fish has earned a reputation for serving up sustainable seafood and organic produce in a pleasant, well-lit atmosphere. Executive chef Tanya Suutari disseminates her ultra-fresh creations through a team of friendly, attentive servers, many of whom are happy to practice their close-up magic for the table on request. Start off your soiree with Spring Island mussels ($12.65), cooked in a cream sauce and served with a garlic-scented toasted baguette, or enjoy fried calamari with lime and garlic salt in a spicy tartar emulsion ($9.50). A Kettle of Fish’s kettle of entrees includes West Coast–style cioppino ($25.95), a pint-sized pond of a stew with crab, mussels, clams, prawns, scallops, and fresh fish; a paella ($28.50), with sablefish, salmon, tuna, prawns, mussels, scallops, chorizo sausage, rice, and tomato rouille; the wild British Columbia salmon ($23.55), corralled into consumption-ready quarters with couscous, smoked cod, and wild mushrooms; and a steamed whole Dungeness crab ($37.50), with crime-fighting sidekicks of seasonal vegetables and buttermilk pomme puree. While enjoying your seafood selections, make them feel at home by filling your stomach-aquarium with A Kettle of Fish’s extensive selection of wines, martinis, and champagnes.
As a participant in the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise conservation project, A Kettle of Fish marks certain menu items with a symbol that lets you know you are choosing the most responsible dish available. Relax in the restaurant’s atrium garden as you ponder the mysteries of the pelagic deep and tongue-friendly sustainability. Reservations are required, so call ahead to book your date of seafood supping at A Kettle of Fish.
Tied for #3 on Georgia Straight's Best Fish Golden Plate Award in 2008, A Kettle of Fish was a New York Times Readers' Pick for Where to Eat in Vancouver and has received accolades from Vancouver magazine (who warn that there will be tourists) and Martiniboys.com. Seventy-six percent of Urbanspooners like it, and Yelpers give it four stars.
- Nova Scotian lobster, BC salmon, or Alaskan black cod – if it breathes water or has gills, you’ll find it at the kettle. The warm and inviting atmosphere has plenty of natural light and greenery to soften the large dining room. Views of the Pacific are a spectacular accompaniment to your meal de poisson. – Ellen Jakobsmeier, Martiniboys.com
- Ambiance, Service, Food, all absolutely A+. I'm not going to say it wasn't expensive, but it was all totally worth it - this is what a restaurant at this price is supposed to deliver. – Valeda S., Yelp
