The Flying Pig Restaurant in Vancouver

 

The Flying Pig Restaurant

I know what you’re thinking. The Flying Pig? You must have lots of pork on the menu, right? Nothing could be further from the truth. To be honest, the menu breakdown has a wide range of items and, yes, a small portion can be pork. The Restaurant would be “nouveau Canadian Bistro”… offering a simple, seasonally inspired menu with fresh, local ingredients at a great value. The open concept kitchen brings the Chef to your table, delivering a memorable overall dining experience.

The Flying Pig Restaurant Reviews

“Delicious fresh selections!”
Popped in for a quick lunch and pleasantly surprised at high quality, delicious choices. I had generous serving of brussel sprouts along with the scrummy lobster and shrimp risotto. Highly recommend! Service was stellar.


“Great restaurant with the feel of a cosy neighbourhood cafe”
This mid-sized, cosy, relaxing restaurant has become my new favourite eatery in Vancouver. The food was superb, service excellent, and prices very reasonable considering both the quality and quantities. It has an extensive wine list, including some excellent local wines, which can be purchased by the bottle or glass.

On our first visit we arrived early but, luckily, were able to see what other diners were being served. Portions were large so we decided to skip appetizers. I had BBQ wild King salmon with a salad nicoise. My companion ordered the Signature Pork Chop with pulled pork poutine. Both meals were excellent.

On our second visit we arrived just in time to take the last table in the house. We shared a blackboard special that consisted of a dish with BBQ wild salmon, a 10 oz aged striploin, pork, a carbonara-style pasta dish, and salads galore. The salads were really fresh and beautifully done, the meats and fish cooked just right. It was an amazing dish and cost no more than two individual meals. It's worth checking the blackboard specials!

The meal portions are generous. We did not have appetizers or deserts. On our first visit we ordered a side dish but ended up with it not eaten.

While The Flying Pig gets very busy we never felt rushed. Wait staff encouraged us to take our time and relax, which we did. They only take reservations for lunch and brunch so it's worth going in early or late should you go for an evening meal.

I'd recommend this to anyone visiting Vancouver. Its location is easy to get to with it being in a block of converted warehouses running parallel to the Yaletown-Roundhouse train station, approximately a 3 minute walk away.
