Lucky Taco is a semi-authentic taqueria steps from the beach in the heart of Kitsilano. We offer delicious tacos and small plates prepared with well-raised meats, sustainable seafood, and local seasonal produce.

Our bar serves an excellent selection of Mexican and local beers, as well as an impressive list of tequila & mezcal served straight up, in flights, or with freshly pressed juices in Vancouver's very best margaritas. Bright, delicious flavours, exceptional value and fantastic daily specials make Lucky Taco as good as casual Mexican gets in Vancouver!

Seemed crowed for such a small restaurant, especially during covid. 1 waitress & she didn’t bring what we ordered. We ate it anyway because she was so difficult to pin down to send back & the meal was only served warm anyway. It also wasen’t very tasty ( boring), although creme brûlée was good. We were very disappointed overall. Won’t eat there again.

The food should come out a bit faster and warmer! That's all!

We went for dine around and didn’t have a very good experience. We got tuna ceviche and it tasted really fishy - definitely not good. We then waiting 35 minutes for our mains (tacos) without our server checking in on us once. He eventually stopped by and said “you’re waiting for dessert right?” Nope.
We got our tacos which were ok - kind of soggy and not super flavourful but ok. Our server then told us the dessert (flan) they had was out but asked if churros with extra caramel and chocolate and dulce du leche would be ok. We said sure, a bit disappointed. The dessert came and it was a half sized order with zero sauces. We asked if it was supposed to come with chocolate and the employee we asked just shrugged and said he didn’t know and walked away. We got the attention of our server and he didn’t respond and walked back and put a half frozen small plastic container of chocolate sauce on our table which I’m assuming was meant to be warmed?
Overall really disappointing experience as our bill was $100 after tax and tip. Could have gone somewhere much nicer for that.

Maybe don’t take reservations on Opentable for times that you’re closed...

Had a great dinner at lucky taco! The service was wonderful and the food was delicious. It was Valentine’s Day so the place was super busy but our two servers were excellent, attentive, calm and friendly. We all really enjoyed our experience. Will definitely be back!

Service was excellent! The Dine out menu was appealing although we did find the main course could have had a few sides. Flavours were tasty & an excellent soup.

The tacos are amazing!! Just try and have only one! Service was friendly and relaxed. The bartender makes a mean drink. A very enjoyable casual experience.

Happy hour deals are great. Their tacos are made deliciously well. Happy hour margaritas and beers are a great deal along with tacos
