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

My wife and I weren't sure where to eat while wandering around. When we saw the menu outside we were hooked. We had a combo of spice Chicken wings and 2 Quesadillas. The food was fresh and tasty. The staff were very friendly.

We came across this restaurant while looking for somewhere to eat while visiting Gastown Vancouver. When we went in we had to wait for a table for 4 although several tables for two were empty. Perhaps more tables for four! However friendly service we enjoyed a drink at bar while waiting for table. The food was great, from the wings... More

Go to Tacofino or another place. What makes this place average and not worse, is that you can sit down and eat. I've been a few times and think that average to poor is about right. The service is not consistent, and the food is expensive for what you really get.

This was an authentic Mexican restaurant. We had pico and nachos to start. Followed by an amazing beef burrito and not so great quesadillas (they were not good at all) I wished we had just stool to the burritos as the meal was have been amazing but the poor quality quesadillas prevented this place from getting top marks! The bill... More

We visited on a Friday night, and were lucky enough to get a table before the restaurant filled up. We were very impressed with the service and food. Authentic Mexican food with a good kick of flavour. We will definitely return on our next visit to Vancouver.

The food was great, the portions large and the price for 3 was under $50 for lunch with a drink, how can you go wrong. The vegetarian burrito was good and so was the baked zucchini topped with chorizo and cheese.

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
Gastown
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.
