Owner's own mis-management of his operations and allowing others to run his operation for him. What more needs to be said....ask any of the former werkers of this place.

Great place for s quick bite or a longer intimate meal with your partner or a group of friends. Great for brunch and dinner. Menu items change with the season so be sure to ask what the current special is!

I was so sorry to see that Central Bistro has closed! The food was always great and the staff knowledgeable and it was a favourite place to stop when I was in the West end. I wish the staff best wishes in their new locations...More

We came here a few times for breakfast while staying locally. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food was always good. The west coast being was a personal favourite! Definitely a better choice than eating in our hotel.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to Stanley Park. Everyone enjoyed their food, the coffee was good, and the service was really great. It made for a perfect start to our first day in Vancouver.

Central Bistro has been my go-to restaurant when visiting Vancouver. I always have the shortribs ....tender and delicious.....simmered for hours in a rich sauce and served with the lightest gnocci. Delicious and well worth $26. Well at least it used to be. Sadly, the chef...More

Stumbled upon this place after the obligatory sunset watch at English Bay. The food was great - I loved the Salt Spring Island Mussels, and my wife said the crab cake was very tasty! Beer choices were varied, and the people were super-friendly.

I had been to the Central Bistro for a business breakfast. I enjoyed the fresh food, so when we needed a quick early dinner, I decided to try Central for dinner. We arrived at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday since we had to attend a concert...More

Looking for a 'normal' restaurant around this neighbourhood wasn't easy. The steak was perfect and the salad very tasty. The service good. We are still here so don't know what the damage is when the bill comes, but if you want a good meal you...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
