“Mi Mexicano Favorito - Best family mexican food in Vancouver”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

The owners started some years ago on 1223 Pacific Bvd, with 5 tables inside, a small kitchen and a lot of take away, After a while they acquired the closing restaurant at the corner of Davie and Pacific. All is absolutely Mexican and the family cuisine is really great, for an economic price. Owners and waitresses are always happy, attentive and pleasant ! This is really something to try and be careful, once you have been there you will always come again !

“Recommended!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We were a family of four seeking a good value restaurant which could accommodate a wide variety of tastes! Our waitress was excellent and gave great advice on our kids selections - and what to avoid! The food was excellent and overall we had a great time.

“Favorite Mexican in Vancouver”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

I've been going to Salsa & Agave for years and really enjoy both the quality of the food and the good nature of the staff. While I have a few favorites on the menu that I always gravitate towards, I've had most of the food there and always walked away happy. The horchata is a really nice drink made of rice and almonds that is refreshing and delicious each time. Every time we have guests in Vancouver for the first time, we take them here for a welcome to town meal.

“Looking for value in Yaletown”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Met up with a colleague just before noon - thank goodness as it was very busy during lunch hour. Salsa and chips to start and enjoyed infamous soup and tacos. Excellent value. Definitely will return soon.

“bland Mexican food”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Some of the worst Mexican food I have ever had. The burritos were mostly unflavored rice. The drinks were weak and overpriced. The cost is low but the food has no value so it is not a bargain.
