Named after the restaurant founder's wrestling hero, El Santo is punching far above the rest when it comes to contemporary Mexican food.

Allow us to introduce you to Alejandro Diaz, owner and extraordinaire, who brought his desire for fresh Mexican food to New Westminster's high street. Teaming up with Executive Chef, Sam Fabbro, the two are reinventing our understanding of traditional Mexican cuisine. Now, it's a bustling destination that serves hearty Mexican plates in their spacious, welcoming dining hall.

Featuring one of the best selections of tequila and mezcals in BC, El Santo’s bar program is an absolute knockout. Here you’ll find hand crafted cocktails that capture the flavours of Mexico. Let their knowledgeable service help you select the perfect drink pairing to enjoy with your dinner; whether you're sipping a tequila flight, their famous smoked and in-house barrel aged El Vicente cocktail, or a punchy lime margarita, you’ll be sure to find something you love.

Unlike the famous Luchador, El Santo has nothing to hide behind their mask, and only works with fresh, locally sourced ingredients to bring you sustainable and delicious dishes. Be prepared to socialize and share a variety of dishes such as their Canadian wagyu flank steak with confit potatoes or enchiladas that doesn't hold back on the cotija cheese. However, them being as delicious as they are, don't be surprised if you end up wrestling for the last spoonful!
