If you don't know where it's at, you'll walk past it. Be sure to go for breakfast and have their cinnamon (Mexican) coffee. Menu items are really great. The whipped cream on the pancakes definitely does not come out of a can or frozen container! They don't take credit cards, but the prices won't dent your wallet. The restaurant is... More

Have been to this restaurant a couple of times, and am always impressed. Authentic, delicious food in an authentic, comfortable atmosphere. Fantastic staff, and reasonable prices. Does it get much better than that? Faves are the tortilla soup and the guacamole. I crave that guacamole often... like right now as I'm typing this. I'm also happy to see that they... More

The best Mexican BBQ joint. Nice ribs and chicken, especially. They seem to change decor often; nice touch. Only drawback; sometimes you may have to wait.

Want a good night out?? This is the place, great food cooked inside and on a B.B.Q. outside. Service is great and drinks fantastic. Be sure and order the Onions from the grill, and then stroll down to the beach and have a look around. Wayne D Toronto ON

I go to Puerto Vallarta every year and this is always a must. Great food, great prices! Authentic and a favorite. Perfect for taking a nice walk down the Malecon and ending here for a good meal (or taking a walk back afterwards too). I think I'll go twice this year...

We always order way to much food as we want to try everything. Glad we did. The queso fundido con chorizo was delicious as were the garlic mushrooms. I had the Mexican platter. So stuffed. Would go back just for the queso.

Food was excellent - probably best breakfast of our nine day stay. Busy at night - staff was in scramble mode but they handled it well. Barbecued chicken was delicious and my husband wolfed down the octopus dish. Will definitely return next time we are in Puerto Vallarta 💚

The Cafe de Olla is a long-time favorite in the Zona Romantica. There are always long lines to get in. The food is original and delicious, and the drinks are are generous. The staff has been there for years, and always greet you when you return with a smile and a big hug! Also, I might mention , the prices... More

Staying in Vallarta, we look for local favorites. After roaming around we found this place, name painted on the building, tables on the side-walk. It intrigued us bc it had a full kitchen that allowed you to watch food preparations. No regrets, the inside was beautifully decorated, the staff was super nice and friendly, the food was incredible, and there's... More
