Perched halfway up a mountain, this restaurant has stunning water and city views by day and expansive vistas of city lights by night. It's best known for its alder-grilled salmon, though the smoked sablefish is also tempting; you can opt for companion pairings of B.C. wines. The "Folkestone Feast Bowl"—halibut, salmon, sablefish, a Dungeness crab leg, clams, mussels, and prawns in a lemongrass tomato broth, is served with grilled bannock, a traditional First Nations
bread. The Northwest Coast interior is tastefully done, though it can hardly compete with what's outside the windows. The Salmon House is about 30 minutes from Vancouver by car. Head over the Lions Gate Bridge, follow Highway 1 west, then take the Folkestone Way exit.
