We stumbled upon Swedes one evening and loved the look of the bar upstairs so decided to give it a try. The meatballs were Great! Service was good and had fun drinks. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

Nice drinks and dinner in a great location...they were able to make some modifications for my vegetarian request.

This is an amazing restaurant with great food for a great price. The atmosphere is great, while you enjoy a glass a wine with the best meal in PV.

We had been to "The Swedes " in Puerto Vallarta when it first opened several years ago but hadn't been to Puerto Vallarta for a couple of years. When we arrived at The Swedes restaurant this year Morgan, one of the owners, greeted us as old friends. He remembered us even though we hadn't been there for a while.. Outside... More

Some friends highly recommended that we go to this restaurant( in Old Town) & we're really glad that we did. As we were arriving at the restaurant, a fellow told us that he lived in PV and he felt this was the best place to eat in PV; he said he came there for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

We ate dinner here twice during our week in Puerto Vallarta. Food was exceptional and the service was first-rate. Wonderful setting up above the street for your meal, then go up another level for their bistro. Wednesday night Cosmos were $25 pesos so we had several! You cannot go wrong here - highly reccomended!

Swedes has a wonderful diverse menu, I had the Swedish meatballs and they were so good! The atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable, the staff efficient as well as friendly. The owner "Morgan" is a great host, stopping by our table to instruct me on the best way to eat the meatballs. Believe it or not there is a way to... More

We stopped by late one evening for a few drinks. Located on a quiet corner with MANY stairs to climb to get to the entrance and main dining room...and then, another flight to get to the top floor where the bar is located. But, it was worth it! Nice size bar and quite a few tables providing for a nice... More

This restaurant is very nicely located in south PV. The food is always very good, and the atmosphere is wonderful, and the owner and staff are so friendly. This is a must visit restaurant on the south side.

Such a lovely spot. Funny story. This hasn't always been a lovely restaurant. It was just a little rental that some friends of mine lived in many years ago with their big dogs and it was far from the fancy little boutique restaurant it is today. Perched on the top of the little hill at the South end of Olas... More
