You gotta stop here! It’s funky, friendly, and the food is awesome. Don’t miss out on the crispy anchovy stuffed olives, savory mushrooms on toast and hanger steak. And you must save room for the churros and warm chocolate dipping sauce. Come early as this...More

Espana is on the main drag of Denman street and doesn't disappoint. Their prices are reasonable with a good selection of tapas and drinks. If you are going during high season I would recommend getting there early as it fills up quickly. My wife and...More

way too expensive for what you get. Found the patatas bravas tasted day old or more. Portions were tiny and prices high. Not impressed with any of the dishes the four of us had. won't be going back.

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
