If we’re talking about places to dine in at any time of the day, you’ll definitely have plenty of options to choose from. Unfortunately, though, the same can’t really be said for group dining options, and we’re often left wondering how to join several tables together and how to order food to share. On the upside, our Vancouver ground transportation service is well-versed with both established and upcoming group-friendly restaurants, so here’s our list of the best you’ll want to choose from.

It’s pretty normal to expect a kitchen to be in the same building as the restaurant, but with L’Abbatoir, you’re going to have to look at the adjacent building across the red-bricked courtyard for that. Here, you’ll get to enjoy a giant private event space that can fit 100 guests. However, if you’re not looking at such a large gathering, you can always request for The Atrium overlooking Gaoler’s Mews.
