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...

We tried San Lucas blindly and were SO thrilled with the results. On this visit to Vallarta, I ordered guacamole from most of the places we went to and WOW! This guacamole is FANTASTIC. The owner/chef makes it fresh when you order, I think. It was so good, we ordered it twice (on 2 separate occasions). It has just the... More

I can only repeat my review of last year. This restaurant is outstanding and specializes in seafood dishes. The owner is extremely pleasant, the food is plentiful and excellent. The only downside is the location adjacent to the Guadalajara drug store, which is on a noisy street with buses roaring past. However, we will continue to go each year due... More

We met friends at this restaurant. We were a half hour early, needed to use the facilities and were allowed very pleasantly. We said we would be back in half an hour. The waiter offered to save us the corner table. Our friends were late but our table was saved. The menu is easy to understand, with fish, meat and... More

A few blocks off the beaten path and upstairs; you get to view a busy street and lots of buses going by. However, the food is fantastic authentic Mexican. Great service with style.

Of course the food and prices are excellent. The service and taste is consistent, what you can rarely see in other places. I love to eat there. I have gone for 10 years.

Their business card says "French" seafood but they mean fresh seafood and it was. My family had shrimp fajitas and I had a shrimp casserole with onion peppers and cheese which was very tasty. Seating was on an open air but covered upstairs patio. Great to view the busy streets of old town NV. Service was friendly and efficient and... More

We are staying at El Solmar resort and decided to go to this restaurant. We were very impressed with the overall service which in our table was lead by Jose. The salad chef was excellent and he prepared the salad in front of us .. Cesar's Salad. The Chilean chardonnay wine was unique and very good and our main meals... More

We have been frequenting this restaurant at least once per visit for several years. The owner, Daniel, is always friendly and pleasant without being overbearing and intrusive. It is a shame that it always seems to be empty due to the location, which is a little off the beaten track . However, if you like seafood which is their speciality... More
