The restaurant is nice, good decoration and ambiance. However, the food is too expensive and just a little. When you finish you are still hungry but spent lots of money. The food is tasty but definitely doesn't worth the high price for almost nothing of...More

El Camino’s is a small room with edgy, unstructured decor serving great food and drinks. We had excellent service! We enjoyed a good variety of tapas supported with some great drinks. Recommended!

Chips and salsa were delicious and a great way to start, best salsa I've had in Vancouver so far. However, taco portion sizes were a little disappointing. Flavour and taste were good, but not nearly enough food for the price.

Best Tequila selection & knowledgeable bartenders to help choose your favorite drink! The tapas are amazing and innovative! Just remember that the drinks are doubles......so take a cab!

Went here last night. The tortilla chips were soggy, the sauces all pretty bland. The fish tacos were ok. The food wasn't very spicy or flavourful. I wouldn't go back.

Main street is hands down one of the top neighborhoods to get food, drinks and shop in Vancouver. My girlfriend and I recently visited El Camino's for an early lunch on a Friday evening. Even though it was early and it was relatively empty I...More

South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing.
Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in
converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once
an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage
and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor
galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting
studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a
