"Even in Vancouver, where tacos have suddenly become the new sushi, Fayuca is not like any other Mexican restaurant." –Alexandra Gill, Globe & Mail
"Possibly the most interesting restaurant to land in Yaletown in the last decade." –Andrew Morrison, Scout Magazine
"It’s not Mexican food. But I felt it was Mexican enough to tweet out, ‘Best Mexican food in town.’" –Mia Stainsby, Vancouver Sun

Very fresh take on Mexican food. Wish we had it in LA!!!
Creative food but not superb in flavour or execution.
Service was average to poor.
The design and decor is like no other place in Vancouver, good energy and vibes. The food is so amazing, I wish the chef would come live with me and cook for me everyday. My life would be complete.
The food was excellent - very delicious. The staff were attentive. Our only complaint was that they could explain how things are meant to be eaten better. Would definitely eat there again.
Visited on Monday night. Not many folks. Food was well prepared and well seasoned. Sort of fusion Mexican and Canadian. Drinks have a mezcal base. It was a negroni with mezcal. Different but not to my taste. Lamb was great.
Food was all terrific! 4 of us (plus a toddler) shared a whole bunch of dishes so we got to try a variety of food, and everything was delicious and different from what you’d get in a typical Mexican restaurant. Great cocktails as well! We all really enjoyed our time there and can’t wait to come back!
The food is excellent. All dishes are interesting, tasty, well prepared and well presented. Service is ok: a few too many 'how is everything?' passes by various waiters. Meanwhile they delivered the wrong glass of wine to table, to the wrong person.
Fayuka is very good place for drinks with tapas. A good atmosphere and great location to drop in before or after a show.
But don't imagine you'll get a meal here. The portions are way too small. $200/4 people people with only 2 drinks and we all left hungry.
We shared 7 or 8 dishes and they were all phenomenal. The guacamole is outstanding! Really good margaritas too!
Cocktails were amazing - food was amazing and portions were much bigger than expected. Adding it to our top 10 list!
Food was very delicious, service was great but could use a few more BC wines
Great food and cocktails. Interior design is amazing! 👌🏻
Very creative and unique dishes. Great value as well.
I was very impressed with Fayuca. We had an amazing seat on the patio and tried a variety of dishes (highly recommend the ceviche and beef cheeks). Great service as well - we will be back!
Restaurant decor very interesting and service was good, but as the evening wore on, music was turned up even more, so noise level was disturbingly high. Cactus appy was very tasty and good, but our mains of braised beef cheeks and grilled flank steak were so so.
Very interesting menu and well executed dishes. Terrific to eat elevated Mexican cuisine.
Overall it was pleasant experience!
I celebrated my 50th birthday here with 7 friends and we had a superb evening. Huge variety of colourful dishes; creative, delicious cocktails; healthy portions; helpful, friendly service; even balloons provided by the restaurant. We stayed for four hours and were never rushed a bit. Fayuca is the perfect spot for a special occasion or any night out!
We didn’t love the cauliflower dish, pretty tasteless.
We enjoyed the food.
Very different for Mexican.
The margaritas were excellent.
Service was good except they did not bring us the chips that every other table seem to get and they never asked us if we wanted dessert. I guess we didn't need the extra calories.
Great experience, food and service!
Not impressed at all.
It was great, very different experience than what I’ve heard of.
Totally unexpected awesomeness! Dined there with a vegetarian and a meat lover. All three of us left totally satisfied and impressed with the flavorful concoctions and warm fun ambiance!!
Overall experience was good. The door was open and we were the first table so it was a little chilly but we tolerated it.
The happy hour specials were good. Food was good and the drinks were good. They make a wonderful Old Fashioned!!
Excellent food Not your usual Mexican restaurant Dishes were really special from different regions in Mexico
We will return
Food was mediocre and expensive. We took two bites of one of our dishes and couldnt eat any more. Was asked for feedback we said it was super fishy and over cooked. It was taken away but not removed from our bill. Server was good but we went for food and it was disappointing. Wouldnt recommend or return
As a traveler who dines out many times per month, I’m always on the lookout for restaurants that stand above the crowd. Fayuca certainly does. The food is outstanding, fresh, and cleverly executed; the service is exceptional. A very high recommendation.
Fantastic new restaurant in yaletown. Modern Mexican done so well.
The food taste amazing and overall very good value. the only problem I had with my last meal was the pork dish that promised cactus and there was no where to be found on the dish...
Great hidden gem. Nice interior design we working of the former restaurant. Interesting food choices such as cactus and beef cheeks. Server was excellent.
Food was amazing. SErvice was top notch. A little dark at dinner
Met and exceeded my expectations :-) I had the Chicken with Kale and Rice it was phenominal ( sorry dont remember the mexican name of the dish), really hit the spot after a hard pilates session in the morning. A great spot for Business Lunch.
Am from Calgary, but had heard about this place through various channels (friends, supper club, etc.) so made a point of going when I had occasion to visit Vancouver with friends. Did not disappoint! Food was absolutely amazing - cocktails were great, as was the service. Not the cheapest place around, but you absolutely get what you pay for. The dishes were all super creative - I think the guacamole and the lamb belly were particular hits at our table.
Food was amazing!! Will definitely come back again.
Thank you Fayuca for another amazing dining experience!
So glad we tried this restaurant. Everything we ordered tasted marvelous. Next time we’ll try the mezcal!!
Food was slow and asked for extra hot sauce and tortillas (asked three separate times) which took forever...
2nd visit to Fayuca. Another lovely experience. A couple of the dishes we tried were not as exceptional as hoped; probably just personal taste. Otherwise, a really great night and would definitely visit again!
We showed up early for our dinner reservation but there was no table available so we asked if we could just eat from the bar. Perfect spot to watch the most delicious guacamole made in front of us and chat with all the staff. Kaitlin our server took great care of us. Fun ambiance and family style servings. Cocktails were unique. And definite save room for dessert. We were celebrating a birthday and they bright candle with dessert sweet surprise.
