About L'Abbatoir

L’Abattoir is located in the heart of Gastown between historic Gaoler’s Mews and Blood Alley. The restaurant was built in the 19th century and is the site of Vancouver’s first jail. Originally buttressed to the city’s main butchery and meat packing district, the name L’Abattoir pays homage to the neighbourhood’s colourful past.

Chef & Owner Lee Cooper is dedicated to highlighting the finer points of eating and drinking in a comfortable, yet refined setting. Our French influenced West Coast fare is paired with an eclectic wine program and innovative cocktail list to offer a truly unique dining experience for our guests.

We are open daily for dinner with brunch offered on Saturdays & Sundays.

Reservations recommended; walk-ins welcome.
