Based on word of mouth, we decided to give this Spanish Tapas restaurant a try. We were very impressed! Service staff were very helpful. Timing of food was perfect. The food itself was absolutely amazing. Presentation was lovely, portions were ample for sharing and price...More

This was the second visit we did at España and it felt as good as the first time. The mood setting of the place is very soothing although they can make it a bit bigger since there's always a line up outside and it can...More

Have been to this place several times in the past years. The space is a little tight (not much space for coats/jackets/bags), but the quality of the food totally makes up for it. The staff is also attentive even when the place is full of...More

We've eaten here a couple of times. The tapas format really adds up to $$$, but we've found the food quality to be very good and the type of dishes offered fairly adventurous. It's always been busy when we've visited Vancouver, but we've managed to...More

We brought our son and his girlfriend here for dinner. The food was all very flavourful and tasty. It is tapas style so even the main dishes are small portions. If you like tapas style, you will love this place. The rabbit was very, very,...More

Have been here more than a couple times, and have tried several others around the city (with disappointment), thus we keep returning. Sure, there are occasional misses, but for the most part, lots of hits. Drinks and service are really good, and be prepared for...More

There is a good menu that rotates frequently depending on what is in season. My daughter recommended going there. She was, however slightly disappointed that a favourite cauliflower dish was no longer offered. A great substitute was suggested by the very helpful server and we...More

After 2 years living in Vancouver, we finally got to go to Espana, and it was quite a disappointment. Despite a very good service, the food was horrible. The ceviche seemed to be not marinated enough, the fish was still very raw, almost a sashimi....More

Small in venue size, large in food selection, Espana offers a supreme dining experience. The place bustles with people yet conversations from neighbouring tables do not intrude. You create your own bubble and then simply enjoy the fine fare and courteous service. We started with...More

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
