Metro Vancouver’s biggest annual restaurant festival returns on January 14, 2022, offering a belt-busting 17 days of tempting prix fixe deals at more than 330 local eateries, all of which will adhere to any public health orders in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the province.  Launched in 2002, Dine Out Vancouver is one of the most anticipated events in BC’s foodie calendar—and restaurants throughout Richmond are once again enthusiastic participants. 


Reputedly Canada’s biggest celebration of food and drink—with more than 100,000 hungry diners taking part every year—the festival’s foundation is its fixed price dining menus. Typically including three courses, restaurants offer special set menus generally priced from $35 to $55, as well as promotions and “a collection of virtual culinary experiences” including talks, cooking classes, exhibits and more.

There are usually several choices available for each course, often including vegetarian or even gluten-free dishes. Most are dinner-only menus, but some restaurants also offer great-value lunches as well as take out options. And if you’re a wine lover, many establishments include BC wine-pairing suggestions.

In Richmond, 18 restaurants are taking part in 2022’s Dine Out Vancouver event. Reservations are now open, and you are encouraged to book directly with each eatery as far in advance as possible to ensure you snag seats at your top choice restaurants (and on your desired days).
