Smaller restaurant in a great location in Yaletown on Pacific. I eat here whenever I'm in Vancouver. The food is authentic, fresh and has tons of flavour. Wonderful sauces without being over sauced! We ordered burritos, tequitas, and the azteca soup ... simply delicious! The service was super friendly and welcoming. Also very, very reasonable. Absolute value! 4 if us... More

This is a small, family owned place and it can get really busy. I ordered a Cuba Libre, and let my sweety eat the small bits of chips and salsa. We ordered choriqueso and tacos. The food was great. You do have to dress up the tacos with salsa, cilantro, and onions, but overall this is a good to great... More

Go to Salsa & Agave for a little taste of Mexico. We had the enchiladas and burritos with a side of their excellent mole. The service was always with a smile. You won't go wrong when you choose this restaurant for something different.

What I like being in Yaletown is that there are many good places to eat. If you want something authentic, spicy and quick to go. Salsa and Agave is a decent place. I went there for my lunch takeout regularly, and they are homemade food and always fresh. My favorite is sopes, a thick tortilla topped with beans, meat and... More

Today I visited with a friend “Salsa and Agave” for dinner. Originally, we were planning to eat in the Chinatown area. But since the skytrain had some kind of emergency that caused huge delays, and we planned to watch “Stickboy”, an interesting modern opera about bullying at the Roundhouse in Yaletown, we decided to go there first and to see...

Came with a group of 8 ladies. This was a very small place so it was great they could accommodate us. People were streaming in the entire time which just shows how great the food is. Food and drinks were tasty and very well priced. Everyone loved it.

I was craving Mexican. This place got good reviews. And I like me some good Mexican food, so off I went. A lot of why I like Mexican food is the chips and salsa. When they showed up with the chips and salsa I was amazed at how small the portion was. I think there were literally 12 - 15... More

Great little spot for authentic Mexican food. Busy with locals who know genuine Mexican sabor (flavour). Not an extensive menu but all that you need to replicate that small Mexican restaurant experience. Tacos remind me of bus stop street food. Their picante is too die for. But watch out super spicy. Great spot for a weekend lunch.

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.

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighborhood Profile
Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row' might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.
