A little touch of Spain on a cool and damp Friday night. Lovely sangria, super nachos and seasonal beer to quench the thirst. Flamenco music and dancing and singing to entertain. When a man is tired of Kino he is tired of life. I love...life . Gracias.More
A group of us took in the Flaminco dancing at the Kino with drinks and tapas style sharing. A perfect evening. It's evident that the dancers and musicians love what they do and are highly skilled. Decent, straightforward, affordable food. Friendly service. These people are...in it for the joy. A little slice of Andalusia on Cambie!More
My wife, five year old and I went to watch the flamenco dancers on Friday night. We were worried about the late start of the dancers,8:30 pm but our daughter was really into it. The prices of the Spanish style tapas are very reasonable and...every dish we ate: chorizo chips, wings and salami pizza, were excellent. And you can’t go wrong with a big pitch of sangria.The nachos looked amazing too.
Steve the owner stopped by our table and made us feel very welcome and told us about the other events through the week; comedy and music.
Over all one of the most reasonable live shows in town. Very good mix of young and old and some of the best tapas in town. We will return with friends soon.More
We came across Kino Café by accident. We wanted a meal before a 9:30 film at the Park Theatre and the other restaurants I had read about in the neighbourhood were full, with line-ups out the door (thank you, Dine Out Vancouver). My husband noticed...the “tapas bar” sign on the sidewalk so we went into the Kino Café.
Had a GREAT time! Tasty tapas, big servings, a jug of cheap red wine. Rickety rustic décor which we really appreciated. Most places in Vancouver are too chi-chi for me. Great flamenco music and dancing. We were reluctant to leave for our movie and would love to go back.More
Kino Cafe is an Intimate Spanish tapas bar with a stage for flamenco dancing & other live performances. Its in the middle of the city, around Cambie St. and West Pender St.
Kino Cafe has live music, stand up comedy and Flamenco Dance around the...week nights.More
Sounds like live music all the time? Average decor. We decided to come in a Wednesday and watch the Toque performers which was entertaining. They work off of donations so please ensure you tip them when they come around between sets. It was not that...busy this night but I believe on weekends this place is packed. We only stayed for drinks and nibbled on the Antipasto plate which was very good. OK beer selection, lower end wines, cocktails and sangria. No issues getting street parking on a weeknight. The service was good.More
we made reservations to get a view of the stage from our table. Arriving at 7:30 gave us time to enjoy our food before the flamenco music and dancing began.
The food was tapas style with drinks of choice -we had sangria to round out...the experience. food was terrific with "Leo's lamb pops with polenta being our favourite.
The other dishes were great as well. Our server was friendly and helpful in guiding our food choices. The place itself was perhaps a bit gritty, but in a good way and the boisterous noise of people engaging in animated conversations gave the place a lively authentic alive feeling. As the place filled up the performers came on stage - 2 muscicians with guitars and a kind of electric bongo(really neat) and 2 flamenco dancers. The performances were terrific and they didn't seem to mind if some of the patrons continued their conversations during the performances. Amazingly there was no cover charge and the food and drink prices were normal and great quality. The performers played 3 sets and at the end of each set they said that a basket would come around since there was no cover charge and perhaps the audience could contribute. This was not intimidating and I was happy to donate to show appreciation.
I put in 3 modest amounts rather than just 1 largder amount. SWE didn't get out until around 11:15pm. This happens wed. to Sat.. Tuesdays is comedy night and Sunday and Monday is other live music. I loved this place.More
