Great Spot for People Watching

We grabbed dinner and drinks at Salsa & Agave while in Vancouver. It was suggested by our hotel. The place was super busy with a line of folks waiting for a table. The place is rather small with a few tables inside and some outside. We were able to sit outside that evening and it was fun to... read more

Had the lunch special- Azteca soup with a tostada. Really great value for the cost. The soup is really to die for, I honestly would return just for the soup! Service was friendly and quick. A great lunch spot.

Came to this location while visiting a friend in the area who took us here to cater to our Mexican food craving. The service was exceptionally friendly and the margaritas were very good. The food, on the other hand, was a much different story. The appetizer (Choriqueso) did not taste fresh and had the texture of sitting under a heat... More

Small little place close to the Opus Hotel with original Mexican food. ( if you ask for hot salsa you get H O T Salsa ;-) ) The food is good and even if the place is packed you get your food fast. the staff is very friendly at all times and supportive. We liked it a lot

On hot Saturday of wandering around the seawall, we spied this place and stopped by to have something a little different for a late lunch - and we were not disappointed. Since cold beverages were in order, so we started with a couple of margaritas which were refreshing, on the rocks and not too sweet. After glancing over the interesting... More

I love mexican but am so often disappointed. This place is my neighbourhood and I was told from a co worker from Mexico that this is the most traditional in the city. Checked it out a few times and when I crave mexican this is the place i go..... amazing food and great value

Margarita was delicious! And I had the carnitas, asada, and chicken tacos. I wouldn't order the chicken again, but the other two were yummy!!

We wanted a quick bite and were happy to have found a recommended Mexican restaurant near our hotel. We came during a busy time (Women's World Cup) and the small place was very busy but handled it gracefully. Our burritos were good but the drinks were delicious, and the service time was as quick as we had hoped.
