La Costa is a decent Mexican restaurant near Vancouver Mall. The staff is typically excellent and the food is reasonably good, but don't go looking for that blow-your-mind experience... this is really Mexican Fast Food... Overall, anyway is a good event for lunch or dinner, but use CAUTION when visiting on holidays, such as cinco de mayo or similar.... portions... More

Upon arriving, was greeted warmly at the entrance and given a choice of where to eat. Wish I had gotten the waiters name as he was very amusing and talked me into a Cadillac Margarita instead of a regular, which in retrospect I'm glad I went with the Cadillac despite the price. When visitng a Mexican restaurant for the first... More

We went shopping at Total Wines and saw this place in the same parking lot. Since it was dinner time and there was lots of traffic at this hour, we decided to check it out. I tried something new, Pollo Blanco and it was very different and flavorful. The portion was more than I could eat, so I'll be having... More

The food was the usual Mexican faire; it was good, but not "over the top" good. The Happy Hour drink specials were very good; there was a good selection of drink options, and the drinks were good and strong. The staff was pleasant and prompt. The restaurant was clean, and we were seated right away. We will come here again.

We've dined hare since it was known as Azteca. Decent Tex-Mex fare ate a bit above average prices. Their salsa bar is a nice touch with a variety of salsas, both red and green, spicy and mild. Chips are bottomless and served toasty warm too. Their meals are HUGE! Be prepared to take some hem, and I'm a pretty big... More

I ordered the spinach enchilada. When the waiter repeated my order he said "vegetarian enchilada" and unfortunately I did not correct him. Spinach is a vegetable, isn't it? It was okay, but not what I ordered. The other people in our party were pleased with their meals.

Good food in Vancouver is getting hard to find. La Costa has the best Carne Asada hands down and the kids love it. The service is always good and the wait staff always remembers us when we return. Quality food always served with a smile. Thank you for being our go to meal for nights out with the family!
