My brother-in law recommended this place. My wife and brother in law ordered the Chimichanga's. Everyone loved them. I has the special of the day which I can't remember but, I remember I loved it. The Margarita's were awesome. Home made chips and salsa's were excellent. I would definitely go back.

I have eaten here once before and it was decent, so I decided to pop back here with a group of friends for dinner. I genuinely could have been in a different restaurant due to how different the experience was. Firstly, our server was a bit off with the group. When ordering, he repeated my order back to me incorrectly... More

The food was great, very helpful and friendly staff when trying to decide which items to order. I enjoyed the food, can be a little spicy. A Mexican atmosphere that was relaxing.

We were here for a late lunch on a weekday. The chip basket came with a puréed salsa and smooth guac. Check the board for lunch specials or the lunch/appetizer menu. I had $5 black bean soup, which was fresh and light, but had too many tortilla chip strips. We also had Texas nachos for $10. They were good and... More

A great place to have an inexpensive but delicious night out with friends. Located in trendy Gastown this place is a great option for delicious Mexican food. The fish tacos are out of this world, and I really loved the customizable combo options listed on the menu-it saves you from having to choose only one thing for dinner!

I have eaten here before and had good food and service. Tonight I ordered one of the salads that was supposed to come with avocado, but there was no avocado on my plate. When I pointed it out to the server she seemed a bit indifferent. Not very apologetic. She returned with a small portion of rotten, black avocado and... More

La Casita is great for authentic Mexican cuisine. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. They carry lots of Mexican beers and tequilas and make good traditional drinks, like a Michelada as well. The only limitations are that parking is very difficult in this neighborhood and La Casita doesn't take reservations. Their space is small so if you're going prime time... More

Great location in the area called Gastown that is a busy tourist location. A little pricey and medium size portions unless you pay for a larger portion. We were given a small basket of chips and dips. We ordered a large appetizer size of Guacamole and they wanted to charge us more $$ for additional chips for our Guac. Most... More

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
