food and service veeeery average, however I did like a bartender a lot, very friendly, and proffesional; had this "feel good" attitude. Mango Margerita is a win!!!!! Place isnt pretencious, just simple and it feels like they are not trying to be something else, so I will definitely go back there again.

My husband decided to order the specials. It was a huge mistake. We had been before and had a great dinner. Our dinner the second time was mostly inedible. The veggie taco was canned mushrooms and red peppers caked in cheese. It didn't help the food took a long time and it wasn't even warm. The second entree was soaked... More

We went on a recommendation from someone from the Pacific Rim Fairmont. We had hoped for a casual Mexican restaurant. That's what we got but the food was awful. I ordered a beer, they brought the wrong one, took it back, never brought our second round. Luckily they didn't include it on the bill. I ordered a bean burrito. The... More

We went here last night, the food was decent. The staff was really lovely. It wasn't cheap at all though, I like cheap Mexican food that's good. It's not that hard to find. However as much as I won't be running back here ASAP, it wasn't a bad meal at all.

I went with a few friends to get a bite and drink. We stumbled upon La Casita. First thing I see when we are walking to our table a fishbowl full of margarita. That's what I'm having! Ordered fajitas salad and Texas nachos. All were good. Fun place.

We went here at 5pm on a Monday with our kids to beat any rush. We were seated over 15 minutes before anyone took drink orders, then once we got them NEVER got a single refill. While we waited my 4 year old discovered ants all over the floor underneath him!! Our food came fairly quickly, which was generally fine... More

Quirky Mexican restaurant with great food and comfortable atmosphere. A nice change of pace from the typical Gastown restaurant.

This Mexican is in the trendy Gastown area of Vancouver. It is not one of the "chains" that sell synthetic food, but run people who appear to know what they are doing! Service excellent-really friendly. Food delicious-WARNING-one meal enough for 2 people if not 3! The combos are great-allow you a bit of everything (we shared the vegetarian one and... More

After a few days in Vancouver, my SoCal family and I were looking to scratch our Mexican Food itch, and La Casita was recommended. They had no problem accommodating our large party (8 people plus a baby) on a Sunday night. The food was really tasty, though not quite the version of Mexican Food to which we have become accustomed.... 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.
