We were out for a walk on the seawall and popped in for a quick lunch. I was blown away, this is really good and authentic Mexican food. We travel to different parts of Mexico, pretty well every year, and we really enjoy the food and the culture. Unfortunately when we get home to Vancouver, we are unable to get... More

Went to Salsa Agave for lunch. They have great luncheon specials that include Mexican style soup along with a burrito or similar Mexican dish. Very reasonably priced; everything tastes homemade, fresh and authentic. Vegetarian meals are also available. Service is friendly and quick. They have both inside and patio seating. Easy to find on the west side of Pacific Blvd.

Had a great experience at salsa and agave today. Ordered the Milanese and it was great. It was really busy, but the service is always great. They also serve Mexican sodas made with cane sugar, which is very tasty.

I had not been here for a few years but decided it was time to try again. VERY pleasantly surprised to get good Mexican food in Vancouver compared to the often mediocre encountered in other places. Having grown up in Southern California and lived also in Texas and traveled extensively in Mexico, this is the first restaurant I"ve found in... More

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...

Friendly service. Fresh food and traditional modern Mexican decor. Really worth the visit and always busy. Right near the water front and many other local attractions

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.
