While not "good" by some peoples standards, The Boathouse, Milestones, and what used to be the Pacific Crab Company have great views of English Bay. There's also Cloud 9 but...good? Not really.

There's also Lift and The Crime Lab but in Coal Harbour.

I second this... Went when they had a steak and lobster coupon....food was alright... Not astounding but a certain level of quality is expected of a high class restaurant... View was awesome... Pretty much any spot in the restaurant guarantes a good view

The Grouse Nest - Though it's now called the Obervatory - at the top of Grouse Mountain. If you call to make a reso be sure and ask for a window.

I would avoid Top of Vancouver in Harbour Centre. I worked there for 2 years, food is disgusting and very crappy ambiance. Caters to tourists. Let's just say it doesn't have the best hygiene standards, food quality, etc.

If you really wanna go up there, go there between lunch and dinner time. Go up and have a coffee or beer. Coffee has free refills. Will cost less than a ticket to the observatory. You can walk around and check out the view of Vancouver.

The patio at Mahony & Sons Public House at the new Convention Centre gives you amazing views of the North Shore mountains and Stanley Park. Pretty decent food too.

Best view for sure but that's what you're paying for really. Food is alright.

Horizon's has decent view, but depending on which seat you get.
However if memory serves me right there are tons of litter in its proximity that was never dealt with =/
