Went to Swede's the other night and had a very good meal in a very nice atmosphere. The food is very consistently good, the service is excellent and the outdoor eating area is a comfortable addition to your meal. The lobster Bisque is as good as it gets although I would have enjoyed a little lobster meat in it. If... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner. Great service, great food, wonderful risotto! We have wondered about this restaurant for years. Too bad it took us so long!

I have never in my life enjoyed risotto like I did the zucchini risotto at the Swedes. I asked for a second portion!! Great friendly spot, great people watching and perfect service!

Great place for Swedish or New American food. I had the beef filet pasta with gorgonzola sauce--finished every bite! Service is great and the bar upstairs is great for people or sunset watching. Morgan is the owner and is the nicest guy!

Food was good (I had the Swedish Meatballs) tasted just like Ikea's. But I could have got that in any city. If you do want a break from local food I do recommend this place. More traditional menu. A little more expensive I think. Our waiter (ex France) was very friendly and made us feel welcome. One of the "Swedes"... More

The food is excellent, and the ambience with a rustic view of the Bay at sunset makes this a must see!

I LOVE Mexican food and go nuts eating it in Mexico, however even a Mexican food lover like myself has a limit! So one of our nights we hit the Swedes Bar & Bistro for some good Scandinavian fare. You might ask - Scandinavian in Puerto Vallarta? But I assure you this is the real thing - my mom is... More
