Should you be in the mood for something a little more low key, yet delicious, you won't have any trouble finding something that will hit the spot in Vancouver.
Espana Restaurant is a cozy tapas restaurant tucked away in Vancouver's West End. The space is small and lends itself well to romantic date nights (that won't break the bank) and intimate catch-ups with friends. The food here is fantastic and the menu changes often, so you're always in for a new treat.
Vij's is a well-known high-end Indian restaurant in Vancouver that often has long line-ups and is hard on the wallet. However, their sister restaurant Vij's Rangoli is right beside Vij's and has a much more casual atmosphere and just as delicious food.
Nuba is the perfect place to go if you're dining with different dietary restrictions. The menu boasts healthy options that are packed with flavor, and the prices are reasonable. If you want to try a few different dishes here, make sure to order one of their "feasts"–it's a great way to sample the menu. With a few different locations across the city, a tasty Lebanese meal is never far away.
