While filming Twilight, New Moon and the now-wrapped Eclipse, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and the rest of the cast were spotted enjoying the best restaurants, shops and nightlife spots Vancouver had to offer. Should you find yourself in town and want to taste the life of a New Moon star, here's a list of some of their very special haunts.

Opus Hotel
Rob and Kristen have partied with friends in the suites of this chic Yaletown hotel after a night on the town – and even ordered the occasional late-night pizza delivery. After the Juno Awards (the Canadian version of the Grammys) in March, Rob hung out in the Velvet Room of the hotel's Elixir Bistro, where he sipped a martini, enjoyed the French food and delighted the waitresses.

Richard's on Richards
Rob and Kristen headed to this hotspot to catch their musician pal Sam Bradley and his band. "They were whispering in each other's ear and getting all cuddly," said waitress Alicia Bell of a visit in May. "They were acting like a girlfriend and boyfriend."

India Bistro
In April, Taylor Lautner joined Pattinson and Stewart for Eastern fare at this Indian restaurant on Davie Street. Owner Kamal Mroke said a week doesn't go by that some Twilight-er didn't stop in. The group really liked the palak paneer (homemade cheese cooked with spinach, onions and Indian spices) and chicken jalfrezi (chicken cooked with onion, bell peppers and tomato in a light curry), he said.
