What A Meal!!!!!!

We recently had supper at the Happy Lobster on the recommendation of a staff member at our resort. The service and food were absolutely excellent. My husband and I shared a lobster meal and all I can say is "WOW". This will definitely be a place we go to again on our next trip in the spring.

Stay far far away from this tourist trap. Usually when each cabbie suggests a restaurant, it's because they receive tips for bringing in patrons. Hence nearly every cabbie will suggest this place where I assure you none of them have ever eaten. Easily triple the price of the best restaurants in old town and the food quality is really bad....

Visited the Happy Lobster for dinner on a pleasant fall evening. The restaurant is upstairs in a residential neighborhood, open air, with an expansive view of the city and the mountains. We ordered the garlic shrimp, and the coconut shrimp along with an interesting cold soup. The shrimp were very fresh, huge and deliciously prepared. As with many restaurants we... More

Highly recommended by hotel workers and cab drivers. Very overpriced for poor service, ugly view, and rude service. THey wanted about $80 (US) for seafood special and were rude when we didnt order it. We both got very ill from this meal or from the drinks.

This family run restaurant, found in the middle of a local neighbourhood in Puerto Vallarta is a real treasure! A young man met our vehicle and graciously opened the door for the ladies, welcoming us to Langosta Feliz. He accompanied us to the entrance of the upstairs restaurant, where a young lady welcomed us and took us upstairs. The restaurant... More

On this trip to Puerto Vallarta we ate twice at La Langosta Feliz (The Happy Lobster). The restaurant is on the second floor with a marvelous, festive, Mexican atmosphere and always a festive group of Mexican musicians serenading the customers (a tip is highly recommended to induce the musicians to continue to play!). The foods are typically seafoods including fresh... More

We hired a driver to take us shopping in Puerto Vallarta. The driver selected this restaurant for us. It was upstairs with no windows--just open air-with lots of fans. It was very refreshing on a hot October day. There were lots of choices. The driver recommended ordering any fish dish because that is the local specialty. I ordered tacos--can't remember... More

This was recommended buy Tropicana, it was a hundred peso cab ride into the mountains. Keep your eyes opened because you will see how the poor Mexican people live,bitter reality. This will make you appreciate your meal and life that much more. This is a food experience like none other,it's pricey, well worth it. The seafood is fresh and amazing.The... More
