Randomly stopped here for breakfast one morning with my partner and we had the best breakfast of the trip. We came back a second time it was so good. Their coffee is amazing and so are the molletes. The chillaquiles and machaca are the two breakfast meals I enjoyed the most. We went for dinner one night and the atmosphere... More

This is my favorite place to eat in puerto Vallarta. The chile rellenos are fantastic. So is the seafood and steak platter. The drinks are killer margaritas. Watch out. You could easily over do it. The atmosphere is very rustic and casual. This is not one if those pseudo chic beachside restaurants where you overpay for bad food. It's a... More

If you're looking for a place where you can drink giant margaritas, wear a sombrero, and sing along to the evening's 10th rendition of Guantanamera, then this is the place for you. You will surely have a fun evening here. If, however, you care about the quality of your food, you should go elsewhere. We were shocked at how awful... More

I have been to this place numerous times over the years. Really great food! I recommend the mushrooms with garlic for an appetizer and chile relleno for a meal. Everything I have ever eaten here is great. I normally eat only taco stands in Mexico but this has some really good food for the non adventurous eaters!

Been here on a number of trips to PV. Reliably good food each time. Really enjoyed the grilled green onions. My 14 year old son said they were the best tacos he has ever had.

We stopped in for an early dinner and were pleased to get a table right away. FYI...no credit cards are accepted. Either pesos or US $. Chips and salsa were immediately brought to the table. The service was very good, although I'll have to admit I have never had my plate or remaining chips removed from my table so quickly!... More

We ate there couple times this visit and enjoyed ourselves. Good mango daiquiri. Attentive service. I like the garlic shrimp, and my daughter the beef freak got a very nice(for Mexico) filet mignon. Fresh and tasty veggies. Sane prices, fun atmosphere. Lots of locals AND tourists. We'll be back.
