Food is amazing, service is ok

The food here is fabulous. It is best to come with. Few people and share multiple items. We had a group of 7and shared 15 dishes so got to try so many different items. It's a nice casual environment so you can socialize and listen to music and just enjoy yourself. Service is ok...like most... read more

Bin 941 was our favorite restaurant in Vancouver from the late 90's, but we stopped coming up here about eight years ago. Apparently, it was about that time that the previous owner, Gord Martin, was begining to lose his tight control of his restaurant empire. In 2014, Chef Vishwa Mohan bought the restaurant vowing to return it to it's former... More

This little, intimate but lively space on Davie is wonderful for tapas and drinks. We were lucky to scoop a table for two when we arrived as it is a busy place. We got a warm welcome and the service all evening was excellent. Everything we ordered was beautifully presented and delicious. Our favourite was the short ribs but the... More

We had not been to Bin 941 for almost 2 years and in that time the restaurant has changed hands. All the staff had changed and the menu was not completely as it had been (which is not unexpected). We went there a week ago with a Groupon and were somewhat disappointed in the menu which seemed to be smaller... More

This must rate as there most obnoxious dining experience I have ever endured. The music was full on as if at a club. Some cock and bull story about not being able to turn the music down. Couple next to us bolted quickly. Fries were good but the ambience of this place was really taking the Mickey. Service grimly indifferent.... More

We eat at a lot of tapas places, and we really liked this one. The lamb skewers with the coriander chutney - awesome. I can also see this being a great place for a snack - their plate of frites is literally a mountain. So big! Service was great. Very friendly.

Great spot if you are looking for something different. The restaurant is small with an open kitchen The décor is funky but relaxing. There is bar space for singles and cozy spots for couples. The menu is small plates and the food was excellent. I would go back.

Absolutely loved this eclectically styled little hole in the wall! Cannot recommend highly enough! The food is creative and very high quality. Fresh flavours come together in unusually but striking combinations - the highlight here is really the top quality ingredients and the unorthodox combinations of tastes on the plate. Service was lovely and the local Granville Island made Bin... More

Staying in Davie Village

Neighborhood Profile
Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver. It is the only like area in the world to have a permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant. By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines, humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside many of the hip and trendy bars and dance halls. The area is diverse and welcoming, and its supportive community makes for a tight-knit group of independent and creative shops.
