I originally found out about El Andariego from my Fodor's book and figured I'd add it to the list of options for my recent trip to PV. It wasn't too big of a deal if I didn't make it, as long as I went to Pipi's at least once during my stay since I thoroughly enjoyed it there a few... More

Great place to eat. Breakfast, lunch or diner. Great food and very adorable prices. I have been there in several occasions and I have always have a great experience.

Dined at El Andariego recently for lunch. I'd been there before several times for dinner on previous visits to the area. The food has always been great (authentic, well-presented, tasty, healthy and reasonably priced) for dinner over the years. This time, at lunch at noon, I had a card from my nearby hotel for FREE guacamole, purchasing an entrée. Love... More

Delicious Authentic Mexican Food made with love. We've been here three times on our trip and plan to come back tomorrow. The customer service is amazing here. They have bottled water, the tastiest foods (we've tried different menu items), their banana flambé is to die for. They cook this in front of you with so much love and give you... More

In the space of three days, we went to El Andariego for dinner, breakfast the next day, and dinner on the third day. The service is first rate: friendly, easily handling special requests. Shout-out to Francisco, who made us feel right at home even though we brought in a big group the first night without reservations. Dinner: Wonderful tacos and... More

We always end up eating here two or three times because we love the atmosphere, the wait staff and most of all great food at a great price. We love the shrimp and fajitas but there is a wide variety of choices and your meal topped off with a complimentary shot of tequilla. Be sure to have the guacamole made... More

El Andariego (www.elandariego.com.mx) is located in a convenient location, just outside the "hotel zone" on Avenida Mexico and is not far from the Malecon. This restaurant holds very special memories. The array of delicious homemade food, the staff who are always smiling and could not be more accommodating, the desserts are fabulous, fresh guacamole prepared tableside, and a most memorable...

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge. We ended up going here three times, it was that good. Delicious homemade local Mexican food. The shredded tacos, enchiladas, chile rellenos, tamales, all were some of the best we ever tasted. The margaritas were great as well. Very reasonably priced. We will definitely return here.

We first happened upon El Andariego after arriving late at our hotel (Villa Premiere Hotel and Spa) several years ago. We were too late for dinner at our hotel and we were too tired to head into town. We asked for a restaurant that might still be open that was nearby and were directed to El Andariego, just a short...
