Well, folks, we’re less than a week away from Easter! And, if you’ve suddenly got the desire to treat yourself to a delicious meal this weekend, we’re more than happy to help you out. From tasty treats to full-blown four-course feasts, you’ve got a few options this year. Let’s check them out!
Here are 10 delicious options for Easter specials in Vancouver.
We’re kicking things off with a few classic options, starting with Fable Diner. This Easter, Fable is offering a roast chicken dinner with mashed potatoes, spring vegetables, salad, and ice cream sandwiches for dessert. It’s a straightforward and delicious takeout option, and it’s at a great price ($50).

Hy’s has pulled out all the stops this year, offering a decadent Easter dinner option. Cheese toast and caesar salad kick things off, and you’ve got raspberry cheesecake for dessert. But, it’s the main course that’s the real draw- a classic 32oz. Chateaubriand roast, cooked to perfection. Of course, at $395 for 4 people, we don’t expect anything less.
Where: 637 Hornby Street
Meanwhile, Gotham has opted for another classic Easter dish- a leg of spring lamb. A decidedly more spring-forward menu, this one comes with fresh citrus salad, a succotash, and pavlova for dessert, which is a pretty fun choice. It’s slightly less expensive than Hy’s at $325 for 4 people, but we think either option will leave you happy.
Where: 615 Seymour Street
Don’t worry, we wouldn’t leave our vegan readers hanging this year. And, especially when MILA is trying something that really piques our curiosity- a route vegetable wellington, par-cooked to be finished at home. Pair that with some fun sides, and you’ve got an amazing Easter feast to look forward to.
Continuing on our heating at-home options, Boulevard has a couple of delicious menus for Easter. Choose between a leg of lamb or a ribeye roast for your main, and enjoy some more creative sides. We were surprised to see cornbread and spring pea soup with Dungeness crab lined up, but the idea is growing on us now.
Where: 845 Burrard Street
Speaking of surprises, we’re interested in checking out the options from this usually seafood-forward French restaurant. Not least because they’ve got a rack of lamb option ($57.75 per person), which we must admit is a little more for just a couple of people than a full leg. Plus, herb-crusted goat cheese to start with was a good call.
Where: 1177 Marinaside Crescent
We’ve got Railtown to round out our heat-at-home options. Plus, they’ve got an option we’ve yet to talk about in the lineup- honey glazed ham for four ($199). Of course, they’ve also got all the sides you can ask for, and some rhubarb crumble for dessert. Wait a second, is this grandma’s house?
Where: 397 Railway Street
We’ve got two great reasons to pick Belgard Kitchen’s dinner for two ($80) this year. First up, we’re just super interested in trying the butterscotch panna cotta (let’s be honest, the savoury options here are always good). Second, we think that the ‘Vanbrusco’ add-on wine bottle ($25) would be super fun.
Where: 55 Dunlevy Avenue
Alright, time for a quick breather from the classic. If you’re thinking that Easter is a time to switch things up, then you could try out the dim sum special on offer at Heritage. A variety of dim sum dishes will be included, from siu mai to Heritage’s beloved chicken wings.
Where: Multiple locations
JOEY has more or less become a modern classic option, and that extends to their holiday meals. This year, you’ll be treated to a turkey dinner for four to six people, complete with all the sides you could ask for and dessert afterward. Confession time- we’d be in for the dinner rolls alone.

Well, folks, that’s our roundhouse of some great options for Easter meals around Vancouver this year! We hope that you enjoy a great dinner this weekend, folks.
