I was literally transported to another place walking into Medina off the dirty noisy street construction outside. The light is soft, and the space felt lofty and calming. I loved the charm of the decor, right down to the metal water goblets. The menu, while...More

Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is
bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their
lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's
plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and
corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau

Not when we were there, although we were staying in the hotel next door and it was our get away day so they were happy for us to go away and pack 'while queuing'.
