Try to grab a seat in the window or in front on the street for some of the best people watching in the city. Great location and amazing tapas. Great Spanish wine selection.

We were impressed by the food, the ambience and especially our efficient and friendly waitress. But, we started off sitting out on the sidewalk as that was the only table available, and were horrified to have wine (bubbly) served in thick clumsy coffee mugs! Luckily...More

Had tapas dinner. Bit of a dark ambiance, due to poor lighting. Tapas were great, however not all real authentic Spanish. Would come again!

The sun was baking streets of the West End as glowing orb descended into the bay, with bright oranges and pinks painting the Vancouver sky. But inside Espana, it was dark, intimate, candle-lit, and cozy. Beet Salad, Tortilla, Crispy Squid: each evoked complex flavors that...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
