“Great food, tiny space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Great food, both appetizers and deserts, priced reasonably which is rare for Vancouver. Crammed & noisy place, hence only a 4 not a 5. I'll try the outdoor area next time.

“Delicious food with delightful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Everything tasted and was homemade and very fresh.
The prawns starter was delicious, and all 3 of us enjoyed our main dishes.
The deserts were all also delicious.
I liked that the menu was not too extensive but everything on it seemed appealing.
The service was friendly, but not too much so...and also the staff looked real human beings rather than being thin models for decoration!
It was a little noisy but not too much of a problem.
It was unplanned so perhaps even more delicious because of that!

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a neighbourhood gem but other people should visit as well even though finding parking on the neighbourhood streets is quite challenging. The service is outstanding and our waiter was most personable. All items ordered by out party of 4 were a gastronomic delight. The wine list is of real quality and prices are reasonable. If you love creme brûlée make sure you order this dessert to finish off your meal as it is an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10!

“small spot, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

this is a nice little Restaraunt. it's small and they don't take reservations so its a gamble with more than 4 people. being small it can be pretty noisy. service an the quality of food is quite good.

“Worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Making the trip from downtown was worth it (nt actually that far but with a baby in tow, seemed like an adventure).
The 5 of us all enjoyed our meals, great food, friendly helpful staff! Accommodated the babe and made us feel comfortable.... Didn't feel rushed as sometimes happens at breakie!
