Went for Dinner at the popular Espana, and had a truly memorable meal. The tapas that we ordered were all fresh and flavorful. The paella was delicious and the service was excellent, helpful and attentive without being pushy. Will definitely go back.

The sun was baking streets of the West End as glowing orb descended into the bay, with bright oranges and pinks painting the Vancouver sky. But inside Espana, it was dark, intimate, candle-lit, and cozy. Beet Salad, Tortilla, Crispy Squid: each evoked complex flavors that...More

The restaurant is not very noticeable from the street, once inside it accommodates several tables, the majority for 2, we found it perfectly fine, not feeling crowded, just busy. We arrived around opening time, and serveral tables were already taken; by the time we left,...More

Have been to this place several times in the past years. The space is a little tight (not much space for coats/jackets/bags), but the quality of the food totally makes up for it. The staff is also attentive even when the place is full of...More

We've eaten here a couple of times. The tapas format really adds up to $$$, but we've found the food quality to be very good and the type of dishes offered fairly adventurous. It's always been busy when we've visited Vancouver, but we've managed to...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
