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

This was the first restaurant that we dined in when we arrived in Puerto Vallarta. Our cab driver recommended this restaurant as we asked him for a recommendation. At first we thought that the cab driver was taking us for a ride as this place was not anywhere near the Malecon (we asked to be brought to a restaurant close... More

From all appearances, no one was disappointed with their lunch. The restaurant is mostly open air. The clientele consisted of families, business people and tourists. They have a huge selection of seafood. They... More

This is the best seafood place in town. Lots and lots of seafood to choose from and very reasonable. Only dislike is the singing group while you eat, although they do not force you to get their services. You will be happy when you leave. Stick with the beers.

Massive seafood platters, delicious fried fish, and the best shrimp cocktail (with juice) I've ever had the pleasure of eating.

The view is great the restaurant is practically outside and it's very safe to get to. $5 US from most hotels. We had the seafood platter and were stuffed.... More
