Heaven in a Margarita

I have been to this joint dozens of times and the consistency, service and margaritas are always there. The margaritas are made fresh every time with love and from scratch. As always, traditional lime on the rocks is the only way to go. They are arguably the best in Vancouver...I've had a couple... read more

The restaurant is nothing special, the food is average, and the service is very slooooow ! If you're hungry and waiting something "quick " to eat, I definitely don't suggest anyone to come here ! But is a good mexican food !

It's not easy to find great Mexican food in Vancouver, but S & A is pretty close. House margaritas are VERY good here.

While looking for a happy hour location we found this little place on the corner of Pacific and Davie. It might be small but it is excellent. Happy hours runs from 2:30 to 5:30. Tap drinks are $5.75 and bottles are $4.25; I enjoyed the Negra Modelo. Complementary nacho chips are included. As well, I had the nachos with the... More

Small place right opposite the Yale town station. Pretty crowded during lunch hours. Good selection on the menu. Decent food, fairly good portions and quality at a reasonable price. A quick food place sans frills for people on the go. Service is pretty fast and efficient.

The place was full and there were multiple TV screens showing the World Cup food ball matches. Service was quick and the enchiladas de mole came in a jiffy. It was way too chocolate for me though. The waiters are attentive and efficient. One of the better Mexican joints in Yale town.

This was my first visit to this restaurant and i was really impressed by the food. Everything was really well prepared, tasty and fresh. I definitely recommend the fresh guacamole, the tacos and most importantly the tres leeches cake. The service was good and prices are really good.

This place is reasonably priced, but the food is very average. I'm quite surprised by the recent generous reviews. It is a good place to stop by for some quick, value food, but I wouldn't recommend for dinner out.
