Lobsters! Lobsters! Lobsters!

The seafood platter came with 3 lobster tails, shrimp (we got coconut and garlic), 2 margaritas and dish fixings for $85us. It was the best seafood place we've been to in PV. Service is great! It was my sisters bday and they did a song and gave a shot on the house! Highly recommend!!

I visited this restaurant/bar on the beach twice last week. First time to have some drinks on the beach...lime margaritas were awesome. But as I was leaving I caught a glimpse of 2 plates of food that I had to get pictures of. I dreamed about the red snapper so I went back to eat it on another day. The... More

If you like seafood this is the place. If you LOVE LOBSTER this is Heaven .... The first thing you notice is that you will think you are lost and cant find the place .. why? .. because it is located in the middle of a residential area that is a little run down .. but then all of a... More

Only great things to say about the Happy Lobster. Probably my favorite meal of my trip. The food was prepared perfectly. My fiancé and I just ordered the "special" which was an amazing feast of a huge lobster caught locally, large prawns, vegetables, an appetizer and two margaritas. I loved this place because it is off the beaten path. Locals... More

The overall atmosphere of the restaurant is great! everyone seemed happy and to be enjoying themselves. The food was great, but not the best for the price. The service was great!

So you know how the Taxi drivers know all the best places and they get a little commission for taking you there? That's how we found La Langosta Feliz and boy was it an awesome surprise! Our driver, Manny (born and raised on Puerta Vallerta and SO friendly and knowledgeable) picked us up from our massage appointments and drove us... More

The view was amazing and there was no shortage of tequila in those jumbo margaritas!! You can't go wrong with the prawns or snapper.... Delicious!! Someone in my group ordered scallops, though, and they were terribly over cooked. The wait staff was more than accommodating, however, to bring out a new dish. This is a must try for reasonably priced... More

Charming Mexican atmosphere with an excellent and friendly staff always at your service. The fresh savory lobster and shrimp tasted great including the rice and vegetables. And of course, a favorite Malbec. The presentation of Mexican coffee was great. The (Flan) was excellent and one of the best we've had. Don't miss out on this great restaurant with its fresh...

My friends and I go to Happy Lobster at least once while we are in Puerto Vallarta. We take a cab from our resort Golden Crown Paradise. It costs approximately 100 pesos each way ( approx $10 dollars each way). It's a busy little place and so worth it. The waiters are amazing!! It's always so much fun!! If you... More
