Visited a few weeks ago for some late lunch. The menu is extensive and there will be something for everyone. I opted for tacos and guacamole; overall it was a nice meal.

I wonder if I am missing something here as most of the other reviews being so great! I ordered the chicken enchiladas and they were completely bland, with a very disappointing salsa, tasting like the sauce from canned baked beans. I had high hopes based on the other reviews but was totally disappointed. The staff were lovely, very attentive service,... More

Family run, excellent food choices, tastes just like Mexico. Owner is from Zihuatanejo and majority of staff speak Spanish. Have a nice deck which is licensed.

Good service. Bland food. Ordered burrito. Dry and tasteless. Salsa is a thin liquid with no taste. Don't ask for extra . They charge. Enchiladas have cubed chicken , no spice. Also tried the rolled beef tacos. The beef inside was dry and chewy. The presentation of the food is great. Looks yummy but does not taste yummy ! Tried... More

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.

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighbourhood 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.
