Outdoor seating is lovely...Commercial Drive is Vibrant & Interesting so great people watching:) Good menu with variety...but a bit pricey. The Happy Hour menu looks great...instead of lunch we will do that next time!

Had the Havana salad. Price was only $14, however I would not order it again. The salad lacked flavour and texture. We ordered two pitchers of sangria, both of which tasted quite watered down and lacked flavour. The restaurant was quite busy and the service...More

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
