40th Anniversary Promotion
3 courses for $40

The Teahouse is excited to celebrate its 40th Anniversary and four decades of hospitality history with a special three course prix fixe menu available now until December 10.

The Teahouse first opened its doors to Vancouver diners in 1978 and in the 40 years since then it has cemented its place as one of the city’s premier dining destinations. Nestled within the lush greenery of Stanley Park with an unparalleled view of the Burrard Inlet, where guests can enjoy the longest sunsets in the city, the Teahouse offers exceptional west coast inspired cuisine in a beautiful setting. The combination of culinary excellence and ambiance have made it a favorite among locals and visitors alike.

To celebrate this milestone moment, the Teahouse has crafted a special three-course meal that features classic dishes pulled from the original menu. The anniversary menu is available for $40 per person and diners can choose from three dishes for each course: appetizer, entree, and dessert.

Dishes include the Teahouse stuffed mushrooms with crab, shrimp and cream cheese to start; fisherman’s soup with fresh scallops, fish, and shrimp served in a fennel and Pernod broth or steak au poivre featuring a 6oz New York strip loin served in a cognac and cream sauce with freshly cracked peppercorns as an entree; and for dessert, a time-honoured classic, baked Alaska made with strawberry ice cream, chocolate cake, and covered in a sweet delicate meringue. Gluten free and vegetarian options are available and all seafood is certified Ocean Wise. See full menu here.

“We are thrilled to celebrate this milestone at The Teahouse and appreciate all of the continued support from the community. With 40 years of memories being shared by our regular diners, there are unlimited stories we could recount about all of the special experiences our guests have had. We look forward to being a part of many more memories to come.” Eva Gates, VP of Operations and Human Resources for Sequoia Company of Restaurants

While well known as one of Vancouver’s most iconic restaurants, the Teahouse has a long history that extends beyond it’s time as a modern dining destination. Originally built for use during the Second World War, the building was a garrison and mess hall for officers when Ferguson Point was a military base. Following the end of the war it was repurposed as a military residence before opening to the public as a tea room in the 1950’s. By 1976 the original tea room was in dire need of repairs and closed down. The building was renovated two years later by the present owner Brent Davies and reopened under the original name, the Teahouse. Over the next 16 years the restaurant expanded to include the 60-seat glass conservatory at the south-east side, the 40-seat drawing room on the northwest side and, finally in 1994, the 34-seat patio.
