West has received accolades from Food & Wine ("one of the world’s hottest restaurants"); UK Sunday Independent ("ten of the best, worldwide") and a Mobile Four Star Award (look we don’t have Michelin ratings!).
The chef, David Hawksworth trained under Marco Pierre White. The latter, if you’ve read Heat, had the young Mario Batali under his wing. He also apprenticed in the multi-leveled kitchens of Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons in Oxford. He’s young, well-trained and he knows how to pull it all together without being overly fussy.
If you find yourself in the Vancouver neighborhood of South Granville you would be wise to make an early reservation at Ouest (West) as it is one of the best values to be found in Vancouver. Until 6pm the fixed price meal is just $45. And nothing is scrimped–not the service, the quality–just one memorable dining experience.
