Definitely a place for those fond of seafood dishes with a more laid back atmosphere than some places one can come to expect downtown.

Lots of menu options besides oysters, and helpful staff to pick something you would enjoy.

The batter of the fish tacos was a bit thick, and the tacos were a bit small. The rice and the seasoning of the Paella could be done a bit better too. The seafood itself was very fresh though!

No impresses with curt staff and mandatory 20% tip for ‘large gathering’ of 6 people. Broken QR link to menu (and insufficient physical menus). Good food quality but front of the house killed any desire to revisit the place.

A friend and I had a craving fo seafood, so we decided to try Fanny Bay’s. Great idea! Food was excellent and the se4vice was fantastic. Place was busy but the server made us feel comfortable and took time to tell us the specials and answered all of our questions without rushing. When our orders arrived, they looked great and tasted even better. Can’t recommend this restaurant enough.

Service and food is okay they always bring out all the food at once instead of apps first then mains service was kind of slow food choice of oysters though

The oysters were the only good item - every other item we ordered was surprisingly disappointing, especially the Clam Chowder.

Good selection and presentation of foods.
My poke bowl, disappointingly, was mostly noodle bowl sprinkled with minuscule amount of seafood. Not cool
The loud music level is painfully high. I don’t mind music but why do you need to torture your customers with it?
Rather pricy.

Been to the restaurant quite a few times now and have not been disappointed once. Settled on the shuckers dozen and the sablefish collars which were delicious. Our other dish was the mussels and clams also delicious. This place will always be my go to for oysters.

My friend and I were visiting from Toronto and really enjoyed this restaurant. The oysters were the freshest we ever tried. I got a caesar and it was the best I ever had. The staff are friendly and accommodating, and kept checking on us to ensure we had everything we needed. Overall a great experience, I definitely recommend this place to people visiting Vancouver.

Food was FANTASTIC! We ordered many items, oyster, paella, mussel clam, halibut, Brussel sprouts, and Dungeness crab. Super good! The four of us managed to finish all of them it was so satisfying. Service was superb that night, so good to dine in again.
