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... read more

A friend of mine who lives in Puerto Vallarta suggested we try La Langosta Feliz for lunch. The open air restaurant was cool and the view of the mountains was wonderful. We ordered a plate of fish for appetizer along with coconut shrimp and shrimp soup. It was a relaxing 2 hour lunch and one of the best meals in... More

The BEST lobster and crab in Puerto Vallarta and a such great value! Two lobster tails, two pounds of king crab, two salads, potatoes, rice, vegetables and two margaritas that are bigger than my head for only $99 American dollars! Tasted great, the staff was so wonderful, literally sang to us, did a presentation of Mexican coffee on fire which... More

We came to this restaurant with a group of 7 and they treated our table awesome. Very attentive to all of this and explained to the children in our group what each item was that they asked about. The seafood is great! Very fresh and well prepared. I loved the location, kind of off the beaten path and authentic. We... More

This restaurant is a bit off the beaten path but continues to be one of our favorites. It is up the road about 8 blocks from the Sheraton Hotel. The wait staff is outstanding along with the freshness and seafood selection. We return every year.

I fell in love with their bread and salsa!!! However, the lobster wand shrimp was equally delicious. Our children ordered the fish sticks and fries and they loved it! Michilladas were well made with modelo!

On the beach just south of the bridge at the south end of the Malecon. Nice setting right on the beach, ordered the guacamole appetizer and coconut shrimp. The guacamole was huge and the shrimp were butterfly but the size of prawns, with a delectable coconut coating. If you like coconut and shrimp this is the dish for you!!

All I am going to say is if the waiter suggests the special, TAKE IT! Ours was two huge lobster tails, 6 of the LARGEST shrimp I've ever seen and bacon wrapped sea bass served with veggies and rice and two super large margaritas... The best dinner we had in PV!
