Though this place may be missed by those travelling along Cornwall, it is a great spot to enjoy some comfort food, a choice beverage and some entertainment. There is a band playing 3 nights/week, and there is Karaoke offered also. The half chicken was a favourite. The spare ribs are well worth a try. Don't forget to ask for some... More

We had dinenr here before our visit to the nearby Shakespeare Festival. Many of the other guests seemed to know each other and the waitress. The service was friendly, we had not to wait long for our drinks and food and we both liked the taste of our burgers (chicken and salmon).

We called in here for dinner when staying in Kitsilano. We had a really nice reasonably priced meal with a very pleasant and helpful waitress.

My husband and I have been to Charqui on several occasions and we love the chicken! Hubby always orders the 1/4 chicken, his favorite, and I love the chicken kabob. The chicken is always tasty and moist, not all dried out like some places. The atmosphere is great and it's fun to check out all the curios from around the... More

I visited with a friend on Saturday August 1, 2015 after the fireworks. The bartender/owner asked us what we wanted as we sat down but we weren’t ready to order at that time. 10-15 minutes he finally comes by and asks us again. My friend ordered a draft, I ordered a large glass of los primos malbec. I watch him... More

Just had a dinner here, walked in without reading any reviews after a day at the swimming pool - we were in the mood for wings, and very hungry. We ordered two beers, apple juice, 3 lbs of chicken wings, plate of raw veggies for my little one (namely - celery, carrots, and cucumbers), and pita with hummus. We waited... More

I had some time to kill before attending a performance at Shakespeare on the Beach on July 8th and I happened upon this restaurant. It was a very lovely dinner, delicious food, with very welcoming service. The owner greeted me and offered a table on the patio. I had a mojito, the rib steak and a glass of wine for... More

Stopped by on a rainy August night for delicious, well spiced tapas and decent live music. We will return.

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
