Little gem small restaurant with a warm heart. We were met at the door by Josh who was lovely and gave us a table in the window. Ordered the spiced lamb and the beef Wellington. Both were exceptional and the local beer very good. Had vet atmosphere and very busy. Would recommend.

I don't get Bin 941. On one hand it has that scuzzy, previously inhabited by a homeless crowd look with the smell to match, and on the other hand it has some very good and interesting food. So I don't know if it is part of some kind of trend, but it is a little weird. Everything is very worn... More

Bing and you'd miss the entrance, but inside has a great atmosfear and does nice tapas original dishes. Tapas dishes are all very large not like a traditional Spanish tapas. Reasonably priced. Personally I'd have the music a little quieter.

Dropped in for a lighter dinner after a long day of air travel and walking this gorgeous city. Previous reviewers were absolutely correct. The Navajo bread, the duck, the lamb were all amazing - with interesting subtle spice combinations that took the familiar up a notch to unexpected. However the ginger cake alone would ring me back here again!

Wow. I rarely gush about food but this location is a jaw-dropper. We were on vacation in Vancouver staying in the Davie/Burnaby area and it was our last night so we thought we should splurge a little. I checked out spots within walking distance so we could have a drink. I spotted this 4.5 star just blocks away and figured... More

This place is astoundingly good. We arrived late, but the wonderful waiter guided us quickly through the menu. We ordered most of his favorites (including Thai-style mussels, some gorgeous basil tomato gnocchi, and white wine sauteed brussells sprouts that I will never forget!). Truly a wonderful meal, prepared by a very talented chef. Thanks!

Not that I had any doubts but the unassuming posture of this tiny tapas spot doesn't reflect the absolutely amazing food, exceptional service and super comfy ambiance (i.e. the kitchen is so close to the dining area that you can chat with the chef between courses (yeah, that was amazing.. what's next?) -- we ordered a few things ranging from...

I have been here multiple times and the food is always consistently great. The restaurant is very small but the kitchen was quick and service was timely. We enjoyed the beef tenderloin, mushroom risotto and tuna tartar. All the dishes were well prepared and very tasty.

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.
