About Ancora Ambleside

Ancora’s mission is to embrace the harmony of Peruvian and Japanese
cultures while incorporating the bounty of the West Coast.

Originally opening its doors in the summer of 2015, Ancora False Creek in downtown Vancouver has received numerous awards and accolades. Ancora Ambleside is going to be an extension of the original and will be West Vancouver’s best waterfront restaurant.

Ancora's mission is to embrace the harmony of Peruvian and Japanese cultures while incorporating the bounty of riches the West Coast has to offer. Ancora's cuisine manifesto is hinged on sustainable seafood, while sourcing local and international ingredients, and draws inspiration from its Pacific Northwest surroundings. Understanding the city's dining evolution has inspired Ancora to create a menu that accommodates all of its diners' culinary desires, combining flavours and techniques which embrace several diverse cultures in a modern, yet approachable setting.

Ancora Ambleside's dining space was designed with soft modern lines that embrace the warmth and richness of the city’s waterfront landscape. The interiors feature a subtle mix of soft blues, sand-inspired neutrals and light woods to thoughtfully reflect a gentle, coastal feel, and a serene but sophisticated style. Gorgeous fishnet-inspired crystal chandeliers were imported from Italy, along with custom-colour premium leather furniture sourced from Europe.
