We called on Oct. 30th in the early afternoon to see if there was a reservation that evening. Karen answered the phone, put me on hold and 15 minutes later I was still on hold. My husband tried calling while I was still holding, they...More

We loved everything we tried: patatas bravas, fried calamari, sangria, fried chicken, paella and jamon Serrano toasts. The jamon tapa was only two toast, for the price we found it two expensive. It is always full with locals going after work.

I've been to this restaurant over the years, and the food is always consistently very good. Tapas style means that I can try many different menu items when going with friends. In my most recent visit, it was a birthday party for 20 and for...More

This is a great place that has been around forever and has not changed one bit. The sangria is very tasty... arrange for a ride home it has a kick. Potatas bravas is a good choice but get a few things.

We were a group of 7 women. I have not been here in years! I was very impressed. We shared two pitchers of Sangria and wonderful tapas. I can't wait to return. A favourite was the artichoke hearts with chorizo. Great value.

Had a fantastic meal here, one of the best we had in Vancouver. I can't understand the negative comments about the tapas not being original; it is the traditional selection of dishes, and they are all done well - what more do you want from...More

We came here on the recommendation of Lonely Planet, but weren't massively impressed. The tapas we had was ok, but not particularly original, and not as good as we had elsewhere in less metropolitan parts of Canada. It wasn't bad at all, just a bit...More

Homely little restaurant with great service and the food was good too. I had the gazpacho and paella - both really good. Loved the sangria!

I had the stuffed bell pepper and the Paella. Both needed salt. The Paella was not crunchy on top and was lacking saffron and flavor overall. I have had better. The restaurant is cozy, the decor is wonderful and the service was fantastic. They charge...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
