Now that summer seems here to stay (finally), it's only natural that you would be in search for the best patio to relax and watch the sunset. The Galley Patio & Grill is probably one of the city's best kept secrets and offers one of the best views around.

Located on the second level of the Jericho Sailing Centre, The Galley is not easy to find - if you've ever been to Jericho Beach, chances are you've passed it without realizing. The patio is actually a deck that spans the north side of the building with unobstructed views of downtown Vancouver, Stanley Park, the North Shore Mountains, Point Atkinson, Bowen Island, and the Sunshine Coast. Since 1989, The Galley has been fuelling hungry beach-goers and sailors. Whether you're looking for soups and salads, burgers and sandwiches, or "Beach Food" (fish & chips, fish tacos, or an oyster po'boy), this place has it all (yes, including wine and beer). There's even a breakfast menu if you're staking out your beach spot early.
