Executive chef Nicolas Hipperson fell in love with cooking in his grandmother’s kitchen, where he helped her prepare dishes fresh from their garden in rural Saskatchewan. Owner Harry Kambolis had the good sense to pluck him from the prairies and put his talents to use to create C Restaurant’s menu, which has gone on to earn dozens of awards from institutions such as Wine Spectator and Vancouver Magazine.
Unsurprisingly, given the chefs' penchant for home-cooking style with a young urban twist, the ever-changing seasonal menu emphasizes seafood dishes, complementing them with local, sustainably farmed ingredients wherever possible. C Restaurant's decor also emphasizes a connection to the natural world with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the Granville Island shoreline. A garden patio shelters diners from summer sunlight with beige umbrellas and the upraised tentacles of the giant squids who live beneath the nearby Burrard Street Bridge.
Our server was very personable and friendly. We enjoyed the casual atmosphere and amazing food. The food was plated in such a beautiful manner that it seemed such a shame to eat it, but glad I did! There was plenty of food and I appreciated that it took 4 hours to complete and that we were not rushed by staff to finish and leave. I would definitely recommend the restaurant to my friends and we will be back. If you do the tasting menu, I recommend the wine pairing as it really enhanced our dining experience!

It is expensive. I would not go without a groupon, but it was an enjoyable dinner and we liked getting to taste so many things. Our servers were excellent.
