TWB is a very small wine bar/restaurant attached to the Provence Marinaside Restaurant. Along with a small inside eating area there is a small heated patio on the street. The kitichen is one and the same, so you receive the same Mediterranian style flavours that you get from Provence Restaurant.

Everyday they have a $5 Tappy Hour where from 3:00 to 5:00 you can get a glass of red or white wine along with a selection of appys all for just $5 each.

We've made it a habit to visit this location frequently over the last few months as the location is interesting and the food, drinks and service great.

The $5 bites are numerous. Some examples are: Grilled Artichokes, Risotto Balls, Baked Eggplant, Meatballs, Grilled Squid, Bocconcini wrap and Grilled Mushrooms. All are delicious, don't hesitate to try any of them.

We've also made it a habit to sit in their outdoor patio as it provides street side ambiance along with a nice view of the inner harbor. Yale town at its finest! If you've some time, visit this location to experience it.

My husband and I dropped in for a glass of wine. While we were there we saw some of the tapas that was coming out from the kitchen and ordered some for ourselves. There was a large wine menu and the tapas were really tasty. In addition we found out that there was a special on 3 tapas for $10 Cdn plus tax which we felt was exceptionally priced. On our vacation we returned three more times and each time was as good as the previous one.

Visited Twb on a Friday night, our first time. Just missed the Friday night happy hour from 3-5. Too bad for us!

Twb is a cute little industrial looking restaurant/tapas/wine establishment. It has a small outdoor patio and is a cute little cubbie of a restaurant. FYI Twb is all smooth, hard surfaces and voices and laughter carry. We were seated across from some of the "happy hour" group and should have left due to their antics...but we stayed. They played a part in our average review as their loud and obnoxious behaviour tainted the dining experience.

Really enjoyed the food! Shared a fried calamari and an organic mixed greens salad with the tastiest balsamic vinegar dressing. Our mains were the spaghetti Vongole and beef Linguini. The latter was excellent! A hot, large portion with a flavorful sauce...slightly spicy. The Vongole, was ok. Not as generous and had few clams. Please review the photos. The prices were reasonable, $18 for pasta and $5 for the starters.

The back end delivered our meals hot and fresh from the kitchen. Always a bonus! No complaints regarding the waitstaff. She did come by several times to check on us and delivered our check and we cleared the bill in a timely manner.

Overall a good meal with poorly behaved fellow diners.

Ladies, remember to visit the lav, very nicely appointed!

We ate here after the Canada World Cup game and it was extremely busy. We were invited to start out at the bar and eventually given a table. The hostess was friendly and checked on us twice despite how busy it was. We ordered small plates. The eggplant was to die for, the seafood salad was almost as good, and the rose we shared was a perfect compliment. We loved being by the water and will definitely go back the next time we are in Vancouver.

We have been regulars there off and on since it started and we have always loved the food, the service and the atmosphere. Last night was a disappointment. The food was very good but the service was really poor. We waited for a very long time for anyone to come to the table. Then at the end of the meal it took a long time for someone to come with the bill after two of the people at the table with us left as it was taking so long. Then when the hostess came with the machine she seemed impatient as I was paying the bill. I did not even know she worked there as she was hanging out with a table of what appeared to be fairly drunk guys. I think she was more interested in socializing than working.
I would normally give this a one or two star but because the service is often good and the food is usually good I am giving it a three star.
