My husband and I tried 5 restaurants in the Dine Out 2018 program this year and Baru Latino was by far the best. The combination of flavours in the ceviche made your mouth water. The halibut was perfectly done, moist, flavourful and the seasonal veggies...More

Baru provided a solid culinary experience on all fronts. With this said, everything inclusive of the service was simply very good with no extraordinary standouts. It purely wasn't outstanding, but based on price point, ambiance, quality of food and service, we would definitely return.

I loved this restaurant from the moment I entered. It had such a welcome, electric atmosphere. We tried every tapas plus more and enjoyed each one. The favourite was the mussels!

All the dishes are fresh and tasty. Whether its seafood tacos or their lamb popsicles, it is always enjoyable.

We visited this restaurant a few years ago and had an excellent meal, but based on last night the place has really gone downhill. We ordered 5 dishes; some were alright and others really substandard. The ceviche was good, but not exceptional, and the pork...More

West Point Grey
West Point Grey is one of the city’s oldest
neighbourhoods, especially known for its easygoing and
admired beachfronts. Locals crowd the Spanish Banks
and Jericho Beach, especially in the summer, where a
sprawling view of the English Bay awaits. The central
village is an oasis of sovereign shops, many of them
in local operation for years. The neighbourhood has a
more personal feeling to it, and can be a wonderful
