Las Margaritas Ratings and Reviews

Good food, however a bit pricey for mostly rice and beans when choosing vegetarian dishes. Table service was good, however server merely brought us the bill and did not ask if we wanted more drinks or dessert. I booked the table for three of us through Open Table for one of only two times indicated as available, however on arrival and throughout our meal there were many empty tables. I'm confused about the scarcity of free tables indicated when I reserved mine.

What we had was well prepared and tasty; ample portions; good service. What is unfortunately missing in essentially all Vancouver Mexican restaurants is more grilled meats, fresh fish and dishes with vegetables other than tomatoes and beans.
busy but great atmosphere
We love a quick mexican lunch at Las Margaritas. The value is good and the atmosphere is great, lots of photographs, posters and scenery on the walls to give the place a more authentic ambience. Very popular, especially in the summer, so book ahead.
Bland food, Bad service.
I came here with my family for dine-out. Our appetizers were pretty good, and the margaritas we ordered were quite nice. However, the entrees (I had the chicken enchiladas) were extremely bland and just not appetizing at all, i couldn't finish my plate as i was so put off. This is not authentic mexican food. To top off this bad experience, our server seemed like she didn't want to serve us at all. We gave her no reason to be rude, as we made no complaints, she however would walk away before i finished asking for something (hot water, ordering a drink) and I would have to wait til she came back to finish what I was saying. It was busy, but when she was at the table next to us she was definitely not as rude.
If youre looking for good food, avoid this place. Come for margaritas, without the service.
Decent, not spectacular
The food is decent with nice fresh salsas and sauces, but chicken enchiladas were a bit dry. Service is prompt and friendly and you can't miss with a margarita. The dessert is not worth it, as there are many places to have a nice coffee and treat nearby instead.
My birthday choice!
we sat by the door but we weren't cold. It did remind me of Mexico a lot. the staff were very very friendly. The food was very tasty but not overly spicy. I would have liked to hear some traditional Mexican music and seen some string lights like they have in Mexican restaurants to make it feel authentic.
Great Mexican in Vancouver
A very nice Mexican restaurant for small groups or families. Had a nice lunch on a quiet Saturday in January. Fajitas were excellent and service was very good. Really recommend for a casual lunch or dinner for those who like great Mexican food.
Will be a while before we return
We were a party of four and were seated at a table that was suitable for 1 or 2 people. There was no way our drinks and entrees would fit on the tiny table so we had to ask to be moved.
We were given chips and salsa for two as well so when we asked for more we were charged.
We didn't have enough tortillas with our fajitas so we ordered two more and were charged for those as well.
The food was decent and the service was good aside from the tiny table and additional charge for everything. The only excellent part of the evening was the drinks which we really enjoyed.
I will definitely go elsewhere next time I want Mexican.
Great mexican restaurant
What a great place. I had the quesadillas and they were stuffed full of chicken. I don't even remember what my wife had but it was also delicious. They don't use too much cheese so it wasn't too greasy. We felt a good, comfortable full afterwards, not bloated, gassy, or anything like that. Food was tasty, we will certainly be back.
A little bit of Mexico in Vancouver
Had lunch with my wife and youngest daughter. This was our first visit here and it didn't disappoint. The regular menu has many choices supplemented by a daily special sheet. Prices were reasonable and the food quality was high. I recommend enchiladas of which there are several varieties. Hough the restaurant was quite full, it wasn't noisy and we didn't feel crowded as the tables are larger than normal and well laid out. We loved the Mexican décor and the spectacular bar.
Excellent Mexican food, warm,friendly service
Great place for Mexican...prompt, attentive service. Wide range of food options with special Winter menu. Very generous servings and very tasty. Good selection. of beers and huge selection of tequilas. Moderate priced...lunch for four with four beers was 110.00. before tips. Only drawback was dificulty in finding parking. Recommended
One of my favorite birthday spots.
One of my favorite birthday spots, it's a family tradition to come here for birthdays and they always treat you to something nice. This last year I got a free piece of cake. I would say the only thing is that the servers sometimes get distracted even when it's not so busy so you can't be afraid to flag them down if necessary.
Canadian Anniversary Celebration
My husband and I moved to Canada 10 years ago and Las Margaritas was the restaurant we went to on night 1. We returned there to celebrate our 10 years with our kids and had a fabulous time. Great for kids, yummy food and drinks and great service! We'll be back for our next celebration!
I hadn't been to Las Magaritas for years. We had kids and moved further away. But a recent trip to Costa Rica made us look for that similar ambience. Met my daughter and wife there (Las Magaritas, not Costa Rica). I kinda blew it actually. Had plans to meet there at 6:00, but forgot to reserve in the morning . I called around 2:30. They said they were't taking reservations for that evening . Gulp! SO, as a last chance I went online and .... got one at the time I wanted! I actually couldn't believe it worked until I went to the restaurant and yes, I had a reservation. Sweet! Seriously, the online reservation system was amazing and saved me big time.
The food was great. The patio was much quieter than inside. The service was friendly. We will be back!
