You can take the metro line over to the Bridgeport station--and then either visit the Red Rock Casino (near the water to your left), or go to one of the many restaurants listed on this website:

Here's the info on the Red Rock Casino Resort--pricey for all the food there--even in the food court--so you will probably want to spend your money at the places on the first website (above)

I not positive about the price to take the metro over to the Bridgeport station from the airport YVR station--but I believe it is $5 round trip (Canadian dollars).

Here is a copy of the metro map guide:

and here is a youtube link showing the ride from the Bridgeport Station back to the airport station. As you can see, it is a very short ride.

Keep in mind that if you leave the airport, you will have to go back through security before being allowed to go to your plane, though--so you'll have to allow at least 1/2 hour just for this.

If you are going to Vancouver in March, I notice that the International Food Court at the Red Rock Casino is having specials at their Asian Noodle Market. The deal is that between 11 AM and 9 PM you can get either 1 main course item plus vegetables plus steamed rice or noodles for $6 or you can get 2 main course items plus vegetables plus steamed rice or noodles for $8 (not counting tax, which will be about another $1) (All prices are in Canadian dollars).
