This is an average, yet overpriced restaurant just a block away from the HI on Burnaby Street. The places saving grace was that when I was taken there at around 2 am sober, I left at 4 am very tipsy! The trick I found out was to arrive just after last call at the bars and order a drink. Once you've started you can keep asking for the same thing over and over again.
The service is horrible and the manager/ waitress scared me but the food was actually really good and after the amount of booze that was consumed we needed it. The Calamari and the Garlic Bread were amazing and I did go back for lunch a couple days later to have them.
