Simply Wow!!!

I wasn't hungry this evening so I asked if the Caesar Salad for two could be made for a solo diner? No problem. I found it fascinating to watch the waiter prepare this table-side feast.

Fun restaurant on the edge of Old Town. We have to come back for the fabulous Cesare Salad.. prepared at your table. Wonderful service and every dish we have tried has been excellent, Be sure to make a reservation and ask for a table upstairs. Atmosphere is wonderful as well.

Went on a friends recommendation, was not disappointed. As a long time PV traveler I was a bit skeptical due to the extremely gimmicky and touristy name but I got past that immediately when we were seated. The restaurant is a bit off the beaten path down a side street and when you walk in the place is empty, but... More

This was our first visit to Puerto Vallarta. We thought Mardi Gras would be fun and we ventured out without reservations to find a restaurant along the route. It was a busy night, but the folks at No Way Jose were able to give us a table on the main floor. I have to admire their professionalism. Before giving us... More

The fajitas and mole were excellent. The show fantastic. You must have the ceasar salad made tableside. Fun to watch and even better to eat. Top off your meal with a special coffee flambe. The server will create a tower of glasses and set them on fire. It must be seen to be believed.

I'm staying across the street, finally got a chance to go. Had heard great things, and was not disappointed. The service was excellent from start to finish. Delicious soup, and steak dinner. When I discovered I was running late for a theatre engagement, seemed the whole restaurant engaged to get me on my way without delay. Will definitely be returning.

A recent visit with a friend's family in PV started off with a bang! at this restaurant- The drinks were flowing, the food was delicious- the musica muy romantic- and the "floor show" was a lot of fun--- Caesar salad made tableside was a production (and really delish) - but the best part was the finale- a big ta-da to...

I went to No Way Jose last year and thought it was the best restaurant in PVR! Went back this year and was disappointed. The food for our table of four was not served all together. My poblano pepper must have been sitting there as it was only luke-warm. I planned on paying with a credit card and was told... More

This place is very popular so make reservations if you want to sit upstairs, but the downstairs is quiet is more intimate. The owner prepared a made at table Caesar salad as if we were in his kitchen. The stuffed chile dish with pomegranate was so delicious. I had the Mahi in mango sauce and rice was also a winner!...
