Tapas in Vancouver

So for my birthday I decided to try a new restaurant on downtown Granville Street. Barcelona Cafe is only three months old but it was bustling and served delicious authentic Spanish food. What made the evening even better is that the owner came over to our table to talk to us! It just made the experience so much more personable :) I also loved the interior. Decorated with dark brown leather chairs, dark stained wooden tables and pictures of Barcelona on the walls, it has a simple but inviting atmosphere. I wish I had a picture! It's a great example of a successful small space.If you've never eaten real Spanish tapas, you should. You won't be disappointed. Here are some pictures I found of my favorites...
