We always eat at least one meal here and have for the last 20 years. The service is great, food very good and prices fair. You'll enjoy the meal!

Just returned from a week in Nuevo Vallarta and eating repeatedly at this 2nd floor eatery in the Paradise Mall. Not one bad meal, but also nothing memorable. We ate several breakfasts, lunches and one dinner. They are most attentive, give one value for the money and are highly professional in all aspects. Go and enjoy!

When you are tired of the all inclusive fare, go someplace where you can get your taste buds re-established. The food and service is consistently great with prices to match.

This review is for the Nopalitos in the Paradise Plaza Shopping Center in Nuevo Vallarta. We come here at least once or twice every time we come to Paradise Village. The experience is always excellent and you get a lot of good food for not a lot of money.

My family of four ate at this place for dinner three nights ago. The waiters were attentive but not demanding at all. I had the jumbo coconut shrimp which was very well cooked. My wife had the chicken enchiladas and she said they were great. I would recommend this place for a great meal and a break from the resort... More

We wanted a break from the hotel buffet and decided to check out Nopalitos! The service was excellent! I had the jumbo shrimp special. I have never had such large shrimp. And they were cooked to perfection! There was no kids menu. But my husband and daughter each had a steak and loved it. The prices were reasonable! We will... More

The people I dined with said the the Mexican food was really good, my shrimp was not though. Service was average. This was a nice change of pace from the American food offered at the nearby resort. I really wanted some good seafood and ordered the coconut shrimp. It was tasteless. It came with Mango sauce, but it came 20... More

I've been eating for over ten years every time we go to Puerto Vallarta. The food is constantly fresh and delicious. The wait staff is very attentive and efficient. If you're staying in the resorts in Nuevo Vallarta this is a must visit restaurant!
