Nice room, not a lot of tables. Food was tasty... We had a special with scallops and the soft taco plate. The ground beef/chorizo filling was better than the chicken. Portions were healthy but not enormous, it was good value for money. We shared the chocolate chipotle brownie with raspberry sauce. Delish! Would have gotten 5 stars if they brought... More

My husband and I came here with our aunt and uncle while visiting in Vancouver this week and had a lovely meal! Our aunt has many food allergies and can not eat wheat, dairy or soy. Special thanks to our server, who was beyond helpful in explaining the way the food is prepared and what everything on the menu is... More

I thought this place was going to be awesome. It isn't. First impression: reggae music playing on a Mexican restaurant, that's new. The food is expensive to what you get: it's not great, it's not terrible, I was expecting more for the price and all the great comments that you read. Also, this is the first time in my life... More

This is a wonderful little Mexican place near the West end with fantastic margaritas, fish tacos, queso, guacamole, and ceviche. Would come back every time we are in Vancouver.

Fantastic way to dine for our last night in Vancouver. Vegetarian and fish tacos were creative with unique ingredients, well prepared and amazing. Great service too, all around highly recommended.

Lolita's is a small restaurant, easy to accidentally walk by. Nothing makes the exterior standout. Inside it is packed with locals. Clearly good food, recommend to me by another local. The food is with a Mexican mix. Reasonably priced. I had the Conchinitos ribs. It came with a Mexican salad and a mac & cheese type pasta. The ribs were... More

The place was packed and this was a Monday evening. Luckily we got seats at the bar. I loved the guacamole and the freshly made, warm tortilla chips - the best I can ever remember having (and could only be beaten by the freshly made, bitter tortillas I had in Mexico nearly 35 years ago). The ceviche within a mound... More

Amazing tequila, fish tacos to call home about. We loved this little hidden gem. The taco soup is Devine. My wife's words. A memorable dinner for our anniversary. We definitely will be back.

This place has THE best margaritas I have ever had! They have a very wide selection and they are absolutely delicious! I am also a huge fan of their fish tacos! The atmosphere is also very lively and happy. Beware though, it always seems to have a long wait to get in! We also end up just sitting at the... More

Having walked by this place a zillion, yes a zillion, times, we finally went in for a meal. I had the turkey tostada, my partner a roasted chicken empanada. Both were very tasty and well prepared. I especially loved the tostada. Black bean base and they everything piled up nicely. Easy to eat. Wine selection is small, but many drink... More
