The best brunch

On the beach, tremendous staff and service and a lot of really good food. Saturdays easy to get in, Sunday should go early or plan on a short wait. Well worth the trip.

The good parts first. The view is beautiful. I love Puerto Vallarta and this is just a few minutes south of PV in the lower Conchas Chinas area. I went with a friend that had been there many times and verbally made a comment of "I like it here but the food is just ok". He wasn't far off. I... More

This restaurant is such a find! Not fancy, but the location is unbeatable. We had breakfast there this week, with a table right on the edge looking at the water. Great mushroom omelette.

Perfect place to start the day, great breakfast, awesome setting right on top of the water. Very laid back and not that touristy, service was good and so was the machaca.

Even though I have given this an average rating, I really like this place. The location and view spectacular. The service is excellent. The margaritas are very good, but watch them, they are quite powerful. Some of the food is quite good, but for the most part average. Salsa and guacamole very good. Shrimps Debbie, yummy, although a tad bit... More

There are not too many better ways to spend a relaxing afternoon with friends and excellent food and drink. A short taxi ride brought us to this recommended establishment. We started off with drinks and appetizers. Hot taco chips and salsas and whiled away the time with chat and enjoying the open air. For dining we moved to a table... More

The food was nice for the most part. We went here several times during our stay because it was only a 10 minute walk from our B&B. The service was not great. Often had to order 3-4 times before actually getting served. They seem to be very disorganised. The location is lovely, right on the beach.

We have had lunches and dinners at La Playita over our many visits to Puerto Vallarta. So this time it was for breakfast. I am not a fan of buffets. But this last Sunday's breakfast was one of the best we have experienced. Tamales and a spicy chicken stew were outstanding. Made to order quesadillas and eggs or omelet line... More

Dinner was good. Service was a bit slow for how not full they were. Great food. Good margueritas. Great view of the beach and listening to the ocean.
