Where to eat in Vancouver on Christmas Eve & Day

View as Map

As a popular soda company likes to remind us, 'holidays are coming' so if you're stressing about cooking up a feast over Christmas why not give yourself a break and let the professionals do it for you. To help ease any festive anxiety may we present a map of places to eat on Christmas Eve AND Christmas Day. Reservations are essential to ensure holiday cheer rather than the kind of bitter disappointment usually reserved for a screening of the Star Wars Holiday Special. With thanks to Lee Man for Asian dining recommendations.

Did we miss some good Christmas Eve/Christmas dining options? If so, please let us know in the comments.
