Located in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district, The Mexican Antojitos y Cantina perfectly captures the unpretentious atmosphere and authentic flavours of Mexico.

Executive Chef Ana Cecilia Dander and Restaurant Manager Claudia Romo established the charming hole-in-the-wall in 2011 to cure local cravings (or “antojitos”) for delicious Mexican food. Featuring fresh ingredients, live soccer coverage and all the makings of a Mexican fiesta, The Mexican Antojitos y Cantina has succeeded in curing cravings—and inspiring new ones—for over five years.

The Granville Street restaurant serves an extensive dinner menu from Tuesday through Sunday and offers Mexican-influenced brunch from noon to 3 p.m. on weekends. Whether you are looking for a reminder of home or a little taste of the country’s colourful culture, The Mexican is the perfect place to gather with friends over a breakfast burrito, taco dinner or freshly squeezed lime margarita.
