We went on a whim for an early dinner on a Saturday night. The atmosphere was cozy, with candles and bright artwork. The service was great - the owner and waitstaff were very accommodating and friendly. We had the nachos, prawn tacos, bean taco and...More

I have been waiting a long, long time for Pancho’s to reopen! I was a regular until it closed 1-1/2 years ago so it was with great anticipation that I went there for dinner tonight. It was disappointing I must admit. It’s not bad, just...More

We wanted a real taste of Mexico and boy did we find it. The enchiladas were the best I've tasted in Canada. The slightly acidic taste of tomatillos really came through in the wonderfully savoury verde sauce and the chicken was perfectly done. We both...More

New owner and staff are excellent-so kind! The chef is just amazing with the beautiful food and flavours he's creating. Fantastic daily special dishes to compliment the menu and the best margarita in the west end. The prices are so reasonable for the quality and...More

Wow, what a change from before. Small menu, expertly prepared. I had the pork chop, Dave had the Chili Relleno. Both were great.

Just arrived in Vancouver and found Poncho's. They had just re-opened after renovating and we enjoyed an amazing meal and a couple of great cocktails. Not your usual "Tex Mex", fake Mexican, but authentic, delicious food. The menu had a good variety of choices without...More

We have been to this restaurant before, and were surprised to find it under new management. Unlike the ordinary food we expected, this food was of very high calibre in quality, taste and presentation. We had the enchiladas mole followed by the churros for dessert....More

If you want pre-made guacamole that you buy at Costco, then visit this place. We are here two nights ago, we were standing outside. I didn't enjoy the food at all.

Wanted a Mexican restaurant close to where we were staying and Ponchos fit the bill. Staff were attentive and gave recommendations when we asked. We had the chicken allambre and enchilada vallarta. Both very tasty but not particularly spicy.

Had a meal there tonight. I know it is a family run restaurant - so chose to support them, and it had been a couple of years since I was last there. We waited over 1 hour for dinner to arrive after ordering. Even then,...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
