The food was fresh, delicious and fairly priced. They bring a tray of fresh seafood at your table so you can pick which one you would like the chef to prepare for you.

First of all, there are many good restaurants in Puerto Vallarta, so finding somewhere to go is not a problem. A coworker recommended we try this place. Unfortunately, by the time I arrived in PV, I forgot the name of the restaurant! As luck would have it, a taxi driver recommended the Happy Lobster so evidently it was meant to... More

A locals favorite, not located in the middle of the tourist trap. We took a party of 11 and had an amazing lunch filled with spicy fresh salsa, crispy authentic chips, and grilled garlic covered fish. We had the Parilla de pescado...lobster, shrimp, and grilled fish. Amazing! We left with full tequila filled bellies, had great laughs, and fabulous service... More

My wife and I found our way up the hill to this place based on a recommendation from a taxi driver. The dinner includes showing off a massive platter of seafood options, such as fresh lobster, shrimp and skewers. While we were dining, a mariachi band stopped by and serenaded the room - fortunately the trumpets were fairly muted so... More
