Or maybe it depends what one orders but it boils down to quite average once one stacks up the tapas. White anchovies toast was very good. Fried cauliflower salad was very good. A toast special with ham and quince was sort of a mismatch of...More

Great (friendly and knowledgeable) service, really tasty and unique tapas - some of the vegetarian tapas (Roast Baby Beets, Fried Cauliflower Salad) were excellent and better than tapas that we've had in Spain or San Francisco. Prices are on par for a good tapas place....More

We seek out tapa restaurants everywhere we go so we have a vast array of comparables. Espana has been on our radar for a while but we were only able to make it work this trip to Vancouver. Our bad. It was absolutely perfect. Even...More

They don't take reservations so plan well. Neighbourhood kind of easy walk in place. No need for your tuxedo or fancy party dress and heels. Settle in to a comfortable kind of "hello neighbour" (even if you are not). Noisy buzz. Friendly staff. Good service...More

Stopped by for dinner the other day. The food was wonderful! Drinks were great too - tried the smokey margarita and it was great. Would definitely come back again.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
