Consistently good quality. My personal favorite is the Marinara Mahi Mahi, stuffed with octopus, scallops, cheese, onions and bell pepper, wrapped with bacon and served with shrimp sauce. This dish is currently 142mp and worth every peso. Another great option is the Kevin, cheese stuffed shrimp, wrapped with bacon. The Chile Relleno stuffed with smoked marlin and cheese is a... More

After spending a few weeks in PV I found a true gem in Old Town. MP's has the best seafood and at very reasonable prices. It is family owned and they treat you like family with great service. The shrimp wrapped in bacon was something we ordered for every visit. Hector's Mahi-Mahi was also delicious and consider the seared fish... More

Just returned from another trip to Puerto Vallarta and had to share that Polo's remains at the top of our list for anything to do with shrimp! We love the Shrimp Kevin! The fish is always fresh and the preparations are excellent. The food is simply delicious. It's a small place so make sure you call ahead otherwise you may... More

We were the only customers for dinner the night we went; I guess it was low season. I had the red snapper filet and while it was obvious it was fresh, it was drowning in the garlic butter sauce. My daughter had the coconut shrimp, which was the better choice. Service extra friendly.

My wife and I visited Polo's about seven times while on our yearly vacation. We had almost every shrimp item, sea bass, amberjack, and red snapper. You could close your eyes and point on the menu and be assured of getting a great meal at a reasonable price. Polo, Miguel and Kris make you feel welcome each time you come.... More

The restaurant is in a good location and a nice place to go. We have gone each time we are in PV. I think the food is good and the staff mostly attentive. It can be difficult to get some ones attention when it is busy. The platter for one has always been tasty and filling. Unfortunately, the shrimp in... More

Be sure to call for reservations if you want to experience a great meal in this little hide away restaurant. Generous portions for moderate prices and everything cooked to perfection. We partake with friends several times during our annual three months stay and are never disappointed, On a side street in old town so not much ambiance but who needs... More

We discovered Polo's this year and wish we had known about it several years ago. It is in the old part of town, a charming little restaurant with friendly service, great margaritas and seafood cooked to perfection. It's very popular, reservations are recommended.

Moriscos Polo was recommended to us by several people and we ventured off the beaten path to an amazing dining experience! From the moment we entered, we were treated like royalty and enjoyed some of the best seafood anywhere. We had the Polo combo for one and the Cris Combo for one... The Polo combo had blackened lobster, grilled scallops... More

My wife and I went to Mariscos Polo based on trip advisor recommendations. The shrimp Kevin (Portugese shrimp) wrapped in bacon and stuffed with cheese were the highlight of our dining experience.The Wiri shrimp (coconut), that everyone raves about on the forums here, were average at best. The staff did a good job, but this place could use a makeover.... More
