We have visited La Langosta Feliz, every year for the past eight years while spending Christmas and New Years in Puerto Vallarta with our Daughter, Son-in-Law and Grandson. This year, I was a little disappointed. The friendliness of our greeting was as nice as every, the wait staff was fast and efficient as always, and the décor was at its'... More

This was our third time here and we again left very happy. We had the seafood combination (again) and left happy (again). Service was great. Food has yet to disappoint. Price is very reasonable.

Best experience ever!! We come here every year when we visit Puerto Vallarta, and there is no way you can beat this place, especially if you are a seafood lover like me. Their service, food and everything else is absolutely top notch. The first year we came here, we were a little leery of the location, but it actually is... More

We had the seafood platter for two it was good , the fish was not the best. Shrimp,and lobster were good. I drink some beer with good food and when it takes you 3 times to ask for a beer is pretty ridiculous if you ask me . Overall good because I wasn't impressed with any other restaurants I went...

Lobster tails there are good. They are small but they give 6-8 for $30. the rice with shrimp (or shrimp with rice - they are both on menu and have $1 difference) is good. An ok amount of shrimp for $10. the octopus was really tasty (pulpo) and probably my favorite.

Lobster was a bit chewy and parts were undercooked which they took back to the kitchen, fried up with salt, more salt and butter, overcooked it and returned about half of what was sent back. Not worth the money.

Happy Lobster, as it is fondly called by its loyal clients, has been around for many years and continues to be our favourite for seafood. Four of us went there last night and as always, came out after a wonderful meal. If you want a simple meal, try the whole Red Snapper grilled and cooked with your condiments..my favourite is...
