We enjoyed a wonderful menu that celebrated local spot prawns. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Our waiter recommended a great rose that paired perfectly with our food and was not expensive. Total enjoyment!

Wow, some of the best dishes we have ever had. The buttermilk chicken was my favourite. You have to do share plates so you can eat everything on the menu!

Came here for an anniversary dinner. Had the tasting menu. Great service, nice atmosphere (casual and relaxed) and very high quality food. Fine dining prices for what is essentially a very good neighbourhood bistro but that's typical for Vancouver. Recommended.

Took my partner there for birthday dinner, good atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff. Food was good. Had an interesting dessert, but loved it. Ask them for the crispy chicken skin dessert. you won't regret it.

Visited AnnaLena for dinner in October 2019. It's in Kit and a bit away from busy downtown. It's a bit more relaxed atmosphere than some of the downtown restaurants. It gets a bit noisy as more customers came in, so it may not be a...More

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative

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

If you only order one tapa you might leave hungry. That wouldn’t be to your disadvantage though, because you’ll want to try many and you will leave stuffed. And the bread they serve is amazing.

I would say not really - it's more of a trendy bistro style rather than a family restaurant. However, if the kid was quiet and could sleep through the noise, nobody would probably care. also there isn't a lot of room for... More
