A romantic place to bring your date. The dishes are all small, it is more meant for sharing. Previously tried their tasting menu which is great to try everything. Personal favorite is the oyster and the mussel. Sooo goood!

Wanted to see what the buzz was all about and took some friends from out of town. Delicious plates, perfect for sharing. Good service, fun neighbourhood vibe. Be strategic about where you sit...will remember that for next time.

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative

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

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
