Great Experience

This was our second visit to this restaurant. We were not to hungry so ordered small. I had the guacamole appetizer and it was delicious and plentiful. I couldn't stop eating it. If you are ordering meals only order one for the table. My husband got a burger and it was done just right. We have had... read more

San Lucas is an upstairs restaurant with views of a busy street and lots of bus traffic and activity. My wife and I always make San Lucas one of our first stops in Puerto Vallarta. While not having visited in the last three years, we were immediately recognized by our waiter (Daniel) and treated like old friends. There is no... More

Across the street for Pharmacia Guadalajara and upstairs, this restaurant is easy to miss but don't ! The shrimp soup is heavenly and the pescado a la plancha ( grilled fish) is delicious and essential. Everything is fresh and very reasonably priced. Danielle is a great waiter. We love watching the buses from the balcony. A true Vallarta scene.

This was my 9th trip to Puerto Vallarta and first time discovering San Lucas. It is the perfect alternative to busy places in Old Town that always have a line during the peak weeks like Christmas and Easter. I ended up going twice. Once, just my husband and I, and then again with a group of six. We didn't have... More

My sister and I always stop for lunch once or twice a visit to PV. Very good homemade hamburgers ( with fried onions) and fish tacos. Prices are good. Great place to watch the world go by on Calle Insurgentas.

Great time to spend an evening. We hided from the huge rain in here and ask for a mescal to get warm. It was the best choice because the mescal was home made, delicious and cheap.

It is a lovely place and outside but covered. Some of the best sea food I have had in Vallarta. Yes it is over a busy street with buses but isn't that part of being in Mexico in the first place. Great service and wonderful food. Recommended to all friends who visit.

I can't say how many years I have walked right past this restaurant. It is on Insurgentes across the sidestreet from Guadalajara pharmacy. The main part of the restaurant is a lovely upstairs outside patio area, but I never knew there was more to the restaurant from what you see walking along. I had great shrimp fajitas. I think I...
