A Peruvian-Japanese celebration of seafood served in a slick West Coast dining room.

Ancora False Creek’s dining space was designed with soft modern lines that embrace the warmth and richness of the city’s waterfront landscape. The interiors feature a subtle mix of sand-inspired neutrals, light woods and fishnet-inspired crystal chandeliers to thoughtfully reflect a gentle, coastal feel and serene but sophisticated style.

Fabulously varied menus combine the highest quality local seafood with exotic ingredients such as aji amarillo (Peruvian yellow chilli) and sakekazu (the lees left over from sake production).

Start with a selection from the Crudo Bar, including freshly shucked oysters, before moving on to the likes of housemade sushi, roast yam soup, lobster and shrimp risotto and sablefish with bok choy. There are even a few mouthwatering meat options – try slow-cooked chicken stew with gnocchi, walnuts and olives.

The cocktail list changes to reflect the seasons by incorporating wildflowers and herbs, but there is always a killer selection of pisco sours – not helpful for finding your sea legs!

A meal at Ancora is always a gastronomic journey and a foodie experience to savour.
