Advantages Beautiful location, lovely food
Disadvantages I dont eat seafood.
Just on the other side of Downtown Vancouver sitting across False Creek, in between Cambie Bridge and Granville Bridge sits Monk McQueens. If you don't know Vancouver or didn't quite get that this reads to a pretty ideal location. Stamps Landing, where Monks is found, is smack bang in the middle of pretty Vancouver, you cant get a much better location than on False Creek.Location Location Location: Did I mention location? Not only well situated by being close to everything, Monks has a fantastic view, I have been lucky enough to watch the sunset from here and its stunning. To take advantage of this prime location Monks has a lot of glass windows; you don't want to miss a minute of this great view - water in front of you, downtown opposite you and the mountains in the background. If it's a sunny day (i.e. You are in Vancouver in those two months of the year where the sun shines) Monks also has a deck.
In boring terms Monks is found at 601 Stamps Landing, at the end of Moberly Road - 2 up from Cambie Street and one across from Ash - Vancouver's grid system certainly makes life easy. From downtown you can take one of the mini ferries across to Monks, its walk able from bus stops (on Broadway) or to drive there it's free to park at lunchtime, or $6 valet parking at dinner. If you are lucky there is free street parking around, but it's popular. There is also a pay to park nearby.
Monks do take advance bookings, but wont book for the patio in advance. Booking rules change according to the time of year (which of course relates to Monks popularity), size of party and time of day. Bookings can be made in person or via Tel: 604.877.1351. I have shown up twice for dinner, both times in parties of 8 or more (boy I am popular) and been seated no problem, once indoors, once outdoors.
