I am just back from ten days in PV. We ate in many restaurants that were highly recommended, but I found most of the food to be just so-so. However, Maria Gallo was amazing. We went back the very next day, changing our planned itinerary, as we just had to eat there again before departing for home. Both times we... More

Never, ever, go to Maria Gallo in Puerto Vallarta. I got food poisoning there and it ruined my entire vacation. I was sick for two weeks, had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and did not recover until I was home for 4 days. We were the only patrons in the restaurant, and the food was served cold.... More

We've gone to PV for 10 years and wanted to expand our list of restaurants. This one made the list I won't return to. When we first walked in my instincts was to leave and go to El Arrayan, as this was my fall back plan but there was 7 of us - some tired, some hungry so you stay.... More

The food at Maria Gallo is consistent with the decoration of the place. It's unique, yet mexican, but with a cool and refreshing twist. Their menu is rather small (like the place) but it's quite special and it feels like truly home made food. The music they were playing just perfectly matches the place (Manu Chao)... which makes Maria Gallo... More

I had read reviews on this restaurant before heading to PV. They were all right on the money. Great food, great service, friendly homey Mexican atmosphere and outstanding value. Ex-pat Chef Eric recommended our dinner for us. 1 vegetable fajitas and 1 pork loin dinner with 1 corona. The total was less than $10.00. It's too bad we were only... More

Our snorkeling guide recommended this restaurant, and he did a great job. We met the chef and when we asked him for some help deciding what to order, he offered to put together a special tasting menu for us and prepared 4 different courses for us (total bill $30 US dollars) as well as gave us a shot of some...
