About Espana

España is a cozy and intimate forty seat restaurant that showcases flavours and wines from Spain. Chef Neil Taylor produces a menu of 40 or so tapas dishes that are created using a mix of locally sourced seasonal produce, meats and seafood, as well as ingredients imported from Spain. The menu changes weekly and specials such as Paella and tortilla change daily. The unpretentious atmosphere and warm ironwood bar, invite you to sample some of the many Spanish wines by the glass, along with sherries, beers and Spanish inspired cocktails. Located a block from popular English Bay, the no reservation policy translates into a swiftly moving line-up during peak dining periods. Open until 1am during the week and 2am on the weekends. Late nights buzz with hospitality professionals and post-show diners.
