We always go to Accents for the same thing:
Borsch, chicken kiev, and smetannik (wonderful Russian cake).
We have not tried anything else so we cannot comment on the numerous bad experiences here, but I think that everyone should give Accents a try and be the judge themselves. I have eaten here 10+ times and never had a bad meal.
If you don't like it... don't go back. I'll definitely keep coming personally!

They have raised their prices again and again, and again, over the past few years, yet the food stays the same and is not that great to begin with. You get far better Greek food at Felico's on the other end of Richmond, or at Taverna Gorgona in Ladner. Just try the Roast Lamb in each place and you'll know what I mean...

First of all, this is the ONLY Spanish restaurant in Vancouver. Other restaurants claim to be Spanish, but they are not. Spanish means the country Spain. Not Mexico or Latin-America.
Secondly, what they serve you under the name Sangria, is NOT real Sangria. It is some americanized (or if you will, canadianized) version of it. Real Sangria only comes in red wine, and it does not contain any hard liquor. So while La Bodega's Sangria is good, it's not real Sangria (which is better).
Third, Spanish food is NOT spicy. Not even remotely. Several things I was served at La Bodega are really burning hot. This is not Spanish food.
But even so, La Bodega is as close as you get to real Spanish food in Vancouver, and they are pretty good overall if you know what to get (and what NOT to get). I recommend going there to see for yourself.
