Event Menus


West Coast Flavour

Our culinary team can create a wide variety of intriguing menus for every taste and occasion. From pistachio-crusted Ocean Wise halibut or mini shrimp rolls, to rosemary-roasted rack of lamb and pulled pork sliders, we are happy to create a custom menu tailored towards your event or theme. Our goal is to offer a dining experience as exceptional as the Aquarium itself.

All of our seafood selections are 100% Ocean Wise, a conservation program that was founded by the Vancouver Aquarium to encourage ocean-friendly seafood choices. Whenever possible we strive to use sustainably sourced food through Farm-to-table supply networks. We can also accommodate a variety of special dietary needs, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, dairy free and nut allergies.

Please select option from our menu choices below or discuss your individual choices with one of our event planners. Our planning professionals strive to meet each individual needs and budget.
