Guu Otokomae (375 Water St) is easily one of Vancouver’s best restaurants for Izakaya-style dining. This is a great spot to chat with friends over Japanese fusion tapas and delicious cocktails. You can always count on Guu for a lively yet casual atmosphere and very friendly service. Gastown’s Guu Okotomae serves contemporary tapas, which is unique in comparison to the more authentic Izakaya tapas served at the other Guu locations. Be sure to try their takoyaki and maguro tataki!
