The food was excellent and our waitres was very nice. We also had this trio-group that was signing for all, that made it even better. My brother in law (don't speak spanish) was trying to sing the bamba, we were all laughing, dancing and having a lot of fun. My strawberry margarita was delicious!!!

First, this place doesn't take credit cards, so have pesos ready. But you won't need too many: Both our breakfasts cost under 200 pesos, which is like 15 dollars. The food is fantastic. We loved the seafood omelet and the cactus eggs. And I've never had better coffee. The service is good. I couldn't decide what to eat, so they... More

This was a great restaurant. We stopped by in need of a quick feed, with two adults and two kids (10 & 11). The kids had excellent French Toast (my son ate it without syrup it was so good). I had an omelette and my girl friend had juevos rancheros. She can be picky, but the sign of a great... More

I think the location of this place is it's strongest draw; all you have to do is look at the line waiting to eat tacos next door to know it's not the food. The Good: tortilla soup is rich with plenty of crispy tortillas and avocado; The Bad: steak strips marinated in some salty condiment like gravy master served with... More

Every time I'm in PVR I make sure to eat here. Again, it's best to show up early and beat the line. The food is some of the best in Puerto Vallarta and if you visit around Christmas their holiday special meals are the best bargain around!

Over great place to eat. Decor inside is quaint and chic. Doesn't look like much from the street front but, goes back a ways. Not one dish I could tell you to pick over another.
