The chef’s tasting menu was just ok. There wasn’t one dish that had the “wow” factor that would make someone want to return. Service is great and they are very helpful with suggestions.

Best oyster I ever had, the shaved foie s to die for. Interesting cocktail ideas. Chicken and beef mains were amazing. Pan Acosta should have had less gelatine in it. Overall, attentive service and A great place!

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative
neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture
and poetry readings, its days of flower children and
buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving
their mark on the number of organic restaurants and
fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of
Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic
expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a

I would say not really - it's more of a trendy bistro style rather than a family restaurant. However, if the kid was quiet and could sleep through the noise, nobody would probably care. also there isn't a lot of room for... More
