Great atmosphere, busy, fun, great service and wonderful tapas. What more for a wonderful evening on Denman Street, Vancouver?

We always wanted to try this place as it's busy as hell, be we got there early and there was no wait time. They have friendly staff and atmosphere. Food tastes great, it doesn't matter what it is, everything is great there, even if you're not a fan of Kale you should try their Catalans!
The crispy cheek pea is just amazing.
They also have a good selection of wines.

We have had our eyes on this place for some time and finally were able to give it a try, and we are glad we did. A great, varied menu, Estrella in the bottle. The service was very good and the food was excellent. They don't take reservations, so get there early or be prepared to wait - not too bad in our case, 20 mins or so. The squid ink paella and fried squid were particularly good as was the patatas bravas. Total bill for four was under $200. My only complaints were the parking around here was BRUTAL - thanks Mayor Gregor for making Vancouver one of the most car-unfriendly city in NA - and I'd like to see some draft beer here - only bottles on the menu. A great place worth a visit.

Really enjoyed the range of Tapas on offer - each one we picked was nicer than the last. The choices were very unusual and I wanted to try them all. The BBQ pork was melt-in-the-mouth delicious. There are no reservations, so we arrived before it got really busy (7pm) and got a table very quickly. Service was attentive without being overly so and even though there was a queue for the tables by the time we finished we did not feel rushed to leave.

We got there early and so had no issues getting a seat. The service was excellent and the food delicious. While we ordered a lot - the crispy goat cheese and stuffed zucchini flowers were my favourite - there were still dishes on the menu that I want to try.
