We have been frequenting PV for about ten years and always try to find somewhere new on each visit. No Way Jose's was recommended to us by Yesa - a wonderful jeweler, around the corner from this great restaurant. Our Caesar Salad was the best ever - Oscar did an outstanding job preparing it table side. Antonio, our waiter, was... More

The best service in Puerto Vallarta! The food is phenomenal and the atmosphere is sublime! Can't say enough about it. Try to be seated on the rooftop terrace if you can. Excellent restaurant. I had the duck special which was out of this world, I almost licked the plate. We also tried the red snapper Veracruz and the coconut shrimp... More

The main floor is a little deceiving - a bar with a few tables set up - not very busy...but then ascending the stairs to the 2nd floor presents a whole new picture...1/2 open air and 1/2 covered, lovely lighting, wonderful music (harp & guitar) and a most welcoming greeting from "Jose"...service was impeccable and ambience very pleasant. I had... More

I'm very pleased with my dining experience today. I happened to walk around the block without noticing this place. It looked empty, so I wasn't really keen on dining there. Little did I know, they have a rooftop terrace that was fairly filled. I had a chicken breast filled with vegetables, mushrooms and topped with a corn truffle sauce. The... More

Service slow, meal over all unpalatable.... three in our party had the Frida\ Rivera wedding dish.... Most unpleasent....The venue is more of a bad cabaret for the owner to sing his own praises. Contemporary Mexican...I fear not.

You don't just go to "no way Jose's" you experience it. We have been going here more then once on our visits for the last four years. Each year and visit it keeps getting better. From the moment Jose saw us he remembered us and greeted us like family. Such a warm and inviting place. It's romantic, it's atmospheric, it's... More

We've spent a lot of time in Puerto Vallarta and had never been to No Way José's restaurant but some friends who lived down here took us there last night. It was fabulous. Walked in the restaurant and it seemed very small just a few tables downstairs but upstairs it was just the right size and They had fabulous entertainment... More
