We were staying downtown and asked the bell boy where the closest Mexican restaurant was and they sent us down to gas town to La Casita. Loved it! We had a great lunch. Prices were good and the food was good.

This is hands down the best Mexican food in Vancouver. Try the enchiladas mole. They margaritas are very good as well.

I was taken here by some Vancouverite friends as they all said it was their favourite Mexican restaurant in the city. We went on a week night and didn't need to book, they found us a table really quickly. The food was great, particularly the guacamole. And the portions were huge for an average Brit, I couldn't finish the plate... More

We've travelled all over canada and the US and my husband makes us stop at quite literally one Mexican restaurant a day. One in ten of these might be passable. We finally found a gem in Vancouver where we live! Home made shells for the quesadillas, authentic cheeses, and awesome slaw as an accompaniement. The flavors are authentic and clean.... More

We have been coming here for many years and have always found the food consistently good and reasonable. The service is good too, but die to the location it tends to get very busy on the weekends. Their Negro Modelo beer is a great accompaniment to their food. Their enchiladas mole are always extremely tasty and the small is more... More

This is our fourth visit to La Casita. The food is very consistent and not overly pricey. Manager (possibly owner) is always on the floor doing table checks. This is a good sign. The one complaint we would have is that is in need of air conditioning. Every time we have been it has been super hot in the dining... More

This place has good reinterpretations of Mexican food dishes. I loved the way they presented the tostadas. The place is also baby friendly, and priced the right way despite of being in downtown Vancouver.

I loved La Casita, it had a really nice vibe. We ended up going twice! I had the chile relleno and chimichanga. The dish sizes were HUGE and i had to get a doggie bag. The service was good and attentive. and the second time we got a seat by a window which was really nice. the sangria's are yum!... More

Sometimes a good Mexican meal hits the spot, and that's the experience at La Casita. Our group ordered a variety of entrees, topped off with a pitcher of IPA, a lime margarita, and even a glass of horchatta and some ice cream. La Casita is an enjoyable place to stop.
