I lived with many mexicans in my life and have have good home cooked mexican meals. This place comes very close. Also the prices are reasonable.. I'll pay for good food and good value. I can never finish my plate I leave happy every time. Oh and the cooks are mexican... always a plus and not always the case here in vancouver.

My first time was in a Christmas party last year which I was really impressed with the food and service. This time I went with my girl friend (her first time). We went on a Friday night which they also have live music.
Food: I had the Haibut fillet special (with white wine/lemon, capers, artichoke hearts and fresh tomatoes). It was done perfectly (not overcooked) tendor and juicy. The combination of vegtables in the souce made it even more incredible. My girl friend had the chicken with muchroom sauce. She thought it was delicious and she also loved the side vegtables that came with it.
Service: We were immediately greeted by a hostess with the manager -both were polite and useful. I felt relaxed immediately. Our server was really helpful and knowledgeable of the menu. He was really professional, polite and was at our table when we needed him. The staff seemed to be comunicating well with each other and never wondered around our table for no reason asking duplicate questions.

We often eat at Nopalito and I feel compelled to speak on the great food, great service and great atmosphere. The Fajitas are positively "crave-worthy" and the homemade salsa beats any I have eaten before. The service is consistently prompt and polite . All sauces are made from scratch. Even their black beans (sides) were marinated with some Mex spices I haven't experienced before. Portions were just right. A delightful change from Shrek sized portions they serve up elsewhere, such as stuffed, gigantic 10 inch burritos chock full of canned beans.
