About Blue Water Café
Blue Water Café is committed to sourcing sustainable seafood — and crafting innovative and memorable West Coast dishes. Their Raw Bar exudes a true Japanese culinary aesthetic, consistently delivering pure, clean flavours and unique presentations.
The striking dining room provides active views of the “East meets West” kitchen and Raw Bar. The sweeping main bar leads out to the heated patio and the private dining rooms, which hold our deep and diverse wine collection.
Housed in a handsome brick and beam heritage warehouse conversion, Blue Water Cafe is in the heart of the historic and vibrant Yaletown neighbourhood.
About Chef Frank Pabst
One of Canada’s most accomplished chefs, Frank Pabst’s disciplined technique—earned in some of Europe’s finest kitchens—is matched to the West Coast’s abundant harvest of seafood.
Widely recognized for his creative impetus and leadership in responsible seafood practices, today Pabst leads Blue Water Cafe’s brigade of expert chefs in what has been called “one of North America’s finest seafood restaurants.”
Chef Pabst enjoyed positions in Michelin-starred restaurants throughout Germany and France, including La Becasse (Aachen), the Hotel Negresco (Cannes) and Restaurant de Bacon (Antibes).
Directing the kitchens at Blue Water Cafe since 2003, Pabst has consistently demonstrated excellence, both in the procurement of impeccably fresh, sustainable seafood (Blue Water Cafe is a founding member of the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program) and in the execution of its cookery, showcasing his trademark cooking ethic of “complexity without complication.”
