In July 2003, Aurora Bistro opened its doors at 2420 Main Street in Vancouver, British Columbia. The menu, inspired by a West Coast return to basics, features modern Canadian cuisine in an approachable neighbourhood setting. We rely on elemental tastes and textures; allowing the ingredients to speak for themselves rather than masking them with complicated sauces or combining too many flavours. Closely cultivated relationships with local organic farmers, fish purveyors and mushroom foragers allow Chef Jeff Van Geest to offer authentic flavour, incorporating the freshest West Coast ingredients into every dish.

Aurora’s wine list is comprised fully of BC wines, the ideal accompaniment to local cuisine. The list celebrates BC’s vast array of vineyards, from the biggest and best to carefully sought-out boutique wineries. Sitting on the same latitude as France’s Loire Valley and Alsace region, British Columbia’s wine country has truly matured over the years, and we’re proud to source out the perfect wines to compliment our dishes. Aurora also features locally-crafted beer, basics of flower arranging, and cider on tap and a clever cocktail list incorporating organic sodas, fresh juices and new twists on old favorites.

With a dedicated passionate staff, exciting critically-acclaimed food, and a comfortable neighbourhood setting, Aurora Bistro enjoys showcasing the best our region has to offer.

We hope to see you soon!
