Nice restaurant in Gastown for an affordable price. The dishes are big and they offer warm bread with 2 types of butter as a start. The restaurant is big and was crowded, but we didn't have to wait too long. The service was very good...More

Great menu and food was very very good. It was busy but they were happy for us to sit at the bar until a patio table became available. Server Tom was particularly good.

Amazing pasta! Amazing prices! Amazing waitress (Clara)! Definitely come with an empty belly and an open-mind. Who knew we’d love their pistachio ice cream!?

The concept of one price includes starter and desert or coffee sounds good but quality and portion size of starter - chowder was disappointingly small. The included bread was not good. As for the main pasta course the Thai spaghetti sauce was very thin and...More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and

being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of

As noted above, there is street parking in Gastown, though it's usually busy. At Abbott and Cordova there is a big Easy Park lot with plenty of parking. That's probably a 3 minute walk away.
