we loved this restaurant which is family owned and you can tell they take a lot of time with the care and attention to detail. The staff are friendly and the food is great and the price is right! In a lovely local neighborhood within walking distance of the Sheraton and also the town of Puerto Vallarta.

We went here on a recommendation from the concierge of our hotel. We were staying at an all inclusive and had friends (who had just got engaged the day before) staying at a different resort. We're sure glad they recommended the Happy Lobster. Despite it being as hot as the surface of the sun outside (we were there in July),... More

Loved the scenery from my dining table. I felt like I was part of the locals as the staff were very friendly and paid extra attention to details when food was served. Bring your appetite as the servings are big and delicious.

Tucked away north of the bug tunnel, this restaurant is clean, friendly and offers an extensive menu of fresh seafood, displayed on a large tray for your selection.

We ordered the seafood platter and couldn't have been happier! We enjoyed the view of the jungle and enjoyed the company of the tables around us. It was a great experience!

On your next trip to Puerto Vallarta, take time to go off the beaten "tourist" path for dinner by going and enjoying a fabulous meal at THE HAPPY LOBSTER, or to the locals, La Langosta Feliz! We had lobster, shrimp and crab claws and sides ... although it was promoted as a meal for two, I'm certain at least one... More

Many restaurants in the area offer a dinner for 2 special with lobster, red snapper, shrimp, baked potato, and veggies for around 50 US dollars. This is a local place with the best dinner for 2 I have had in the bay! Any cab can take you there and pick you up and if you ask the concierge at your... More
