What Makes Our Mexican Restaurant a Local Vancouver Favorite?

There is no single thing that makes our eatery the top pick by real Vancouver locals and visitors. Like our dining and beverage menus, key ingredients bring it all together.

Our Team – Nuestra Familia

Salsa & Agave is a family owned and operated restaurant. Elizabeth Hernandez works her magic in the kitchen while Elizabeth’s husband Juan Contreras manages the restaurant and staff. From head bartender to server everyone at Salsa & Agave is counted as familia all the same.

Elizabeth Hernandez – Head Chef

Elizabeth Hernandez, trained in the exquisite creation of Mexican cuisine, is dedicated to bringing authenticity to her restaurant. At the same time, she knows what her home of Vancouver BC wants, and has found the perfect balance for her menu. Whether craving for Mole Poblano Con Pollo or the best plate of nachos in Greater Vancouver, Elizabeth delivers.

Our Food

The Salsa & Agave menu is as diverse as it is delicious. The carefully prepared menu covers the culinary spectrum from Mexican appetizers and share plates to authentic street food and finer dining entrees. We complement and/or pair it all with a delectable dessert menu and an exquisite beer, cocktail, wine and tequila list. View our food menu here and our bar menu here.

Our Location

Salsa & Agave is tucked between Yaletown’s waterfront and the commercial district. Our restaurant’s location is perfect for parties seeking convenience without sacrificing a great view. Our Pacific Boulevard address offers in-front parking and quick access to Mainland and Hamilton. Come for lunch, stroll and shop the area, and return for dinner and drinks in the evening.

Our Customers

One of the biggest draws to our Mexican restaurant and bar? Our guests! On a sunny day our packed patio draws the eyes of all who pass by. Our non-pretentious customers know how to have fun, and welcome all who stop to gander at the menu. On cooler cloudy Vancouver days you can’t imagine a more cozy scene, with patrons huddled inside, enjoying their food and drinks amidst lively conversation.
