Dockside Restaurant at the Granville Island Hotel is a favorite place of mine for pre-show dining and as you can tell from my last two reviews (Dockside and Dockside:Take 2) I have generally really appreciated the food there. So I was very interested to learn that Chef Simon McNeil has taken over as Executive Chef, and to find out what he plans for the menu, at a Meet the Chef event.
A short walk down to the dock and there was not long to wait for the Aquabus ferry, which took me across to the Granville Island. At home I can look out over False Creek directly at the restaurant and their inviting patio. From the GI dock a five minute walk took me to the tip of Granville Island where Dockside Restaurant is located.

I was invited to lunch by an out-of-town friend, and thought that the patio at C Restaurant would be a perfect place to take him to. It is several years since my last meal at C, which was a recruitment dinner for a potential new hire. I was keen to see what changes had occurred.
Although it was slightly overcast, the air temperature on the patio was quite pleasant. We chose dishes from the appetizer menu and overall the food was delicious and beautifully presented.
