We had a dinner at Encanto last night and we intend to go again tomorrow. The food is good and the service excellent. Most importantly it is not overpriced as at many other Puerto Vallarta places. It is only a shame that it is a number of blocks away from the beach and as a result they don't get drop-in... More

This is another little quite place with awesome food. The neighborhood is a little out of the way but worth the walk.

I love this little spot. I was dubious the first time we went several years ago because it is buried back on a pretty dark stretch of Aquiles Serdan on the river. OK if it's still light out but it's a pretty good walk back in the neighborhood in the dark so we take a cab if we're going later... More

The Coconut Shrimp has no equal! As well as the Garlic Soup! The finest restaurant I've eaten in my 75 years. Consistently delicious.

We heard about this small restaurant on TA of course and also from a lady at the Saturday market. I think she may be one of the owners. She gave us an ad complete with map. which promised a complimentary appetizer! Good thing we had the map, because it was a little hard to find, happily off the normal tourist... More

Our Vallarta host suggested that we try this amazing little restaurant! So happy we listened! Have had many great dining experiences in Vallarta and love trying new places! Our dishes were prepared beautifully and the flaming dessert what so good! Make this a stop for sure!

What a hidden gem! I took my mother here with a group of friends for her 60th. It was so amazing. Service... Food and atmosphere was amazing. The pork was out of this world :)

Encanto is the closest I know to a wonderful meal we'd prepare in our own home. And why not?! Encanto is in an old style Vallarta house, now a delightful "shabby chic" interior. The staff are always the best, doing whatever they can to make our experience fabulous. Complimentary corn cakes (succulent!) and wonderful appetizers and main courses with many... More

What a little gem! Food was great, waitstaff was attentive, and it was a superb value! The ambience is soft and charming. We have a home in PV, and plan to eat here many times!

We are on our last couple of evenings and our daughter requested coconut shrimp. Wow. We made a great choice. After walking a bit in a residential area, we found the place we were looking for! Enrique, the server, was so charming. Our experience was great. We started with chips and delicious salsa with corn and beans. The corn cakes... More
