  • We were twice on Granville Island and it is advisable there early in the morning to be when the shops are just so did defintiv. We have delicious bagel and orange juice brought and out tasty breakfast overlooking Vancouver. Also it is advisable to take a small water taxi and not to come by car. Temporal difference was with us from English Bay 5 min or 30 mins. The daily indoor market is nice, it smells all spices, fruits, vegetables, flowers. Also, you can buy any meat, or delicious cakes. For travelers in the caravan to stock up a great opportunity, that was not the case though with us, the temptation was great however.

  • Yes, this street is not the most exciting, however it is one of the key connecting avenues in the downtown area. It travels from the water front area right over the bridge at Granville street market. ...  more »
  • It is the main street of the Downtown and crosses it from North to South. It has 2 different parts: the northern area is that you visit, (very close to the seaport's Waterfront to Granville Street Bridge), which is the business and night life of the city... There are the large office buildings and luxury hotels. There is a pedestrian area, known as the Granville Mall, where are the main shops, restaurants, cafes and entertainment venues. This Mall connects to the Skytrain.

  • Had my first eye exam in years here with Dr Bernard Kim, and it was a great experience. Dr Kim was very friendly, informative and professional. Highly recommended!
  • I bought sunglasses for a 3 month trip to Mexico, which I explained to the staff at the time I bought them. First the glasses took longer to be ready than I was told so I didn't have time to check them properly before I left. Then 3 days into my trip the plastic had stretched so much the legs were wider than the outside of my ears and the right lense actually popped out. When I got back to Vancouver I took them to be fixed and explained that I thought the issue might be the thickness of the right lense and I was dismissed by the sales woman and told it was just the fact that they had given me a soft case originally. Unfortunately at this point I was leaving Vancouver permanently for the UK so I explained that they had to fix them properly this time. I was assured they would. Less than a week later they were again loose and falling off my face to the point that I couldn't wear them. Not only were the legs/frame loose but the right lense is so heavy it pulls the glasses down my face. I've been wearing glasses for 25 years and understand that my right eye prescription is strong however my previous lenses cost £20 and these ones cost over $200 (just for the lenses) yet are twice as thick. My only option now is to pay my local optician in the UK to replace the lenses and tighten the frame, thankfully their prices aren't quite so ridiculous and product is much more reliable.
  • Nice place to buy sunglasses or glasses. Price usually higher then other small places but they have great deal of collections of brands and styles.
  • I went in to buy replacement nose pads for my glasses and was refused service because they were in a Clearly Contacts case. I will definitely not consider this place the next time I have eyecare needs. I would give 0 stars if I could.
  • I have dealt with Granville Optical for several decades and always found the staff competent, helpful and personable.
