Went for an early dinner, tasty snapper tacos and chickpea fries. Choose 2 tasting boards of beer (4 in each), didn't realise $2.50 each so $10 a go, which was a tad expensive, and two were poor. Don't let this put you off, it's a...More

There are no shortages of places in Vancouver to eat and drink. This place is very nice with a varied menu, reasonable prices and an outdoor deck. A good neighbourhood pub in Kitsilano.

Took a solo lunch at Darby’s and was pleasantly surprised at beer selection and prices. Many pubs price beer on alcohol content....not so here. Good burger...warm potato salad lacked flavour. Burger and beer for $11.95 on Monday’s great value.

Just off the beaten track a few minutes from Gastown is this great beer place. Aside from another place nearby, this must be the best beer list in Vancouver, and at very reasonable prices.

We live 2 blocks away and have been going for 20 years, particularly in the summer for the great patio. In the bad old days the food was marginal at best. Then management changed and the food became very good. Recently I think that there...More

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative
neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture
and poetry readings, its days of flower children and
buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving
their mark on the number of organic restaurants and
fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of

expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a
