Some of the best seafood and drinks in PV

I was just in PV for 6 weeks and ate at Mariscos Polo twice. Christian was my server both times and he is such a good, attentive server I cannot say anything but great things about the service. The food is still some of the best seafood that I have had in Puerto Vallarta and the prices are a good... read more

I love the coconut prawns, the seafood combo for 4 with the snapper, the owner was most hospitable. A musician stopped by for a song adding to the relaxed atmosphere. If you get the mango margarita it needs to be blended not on the rocks because it is very smooth and almost like a smoothie. Bring cash no plastico.

Charming little restaurant in old town run by a friendly father and son. We always get the whole red snapper with garlic and it never disappoints.Everything else fresh and good. Try the Mexican salsa and guacamole and you won't be sorry. Very busy in season and reservations suggested.

Its the sort of place where you can watch the traffic go by.Tables are pretty close together and if you are going to have an intimate conversation,you picked the wrong place.If you want really good food at reasonable prices with efficient/friendly but not fawning service, you picked the right place.Friends told us about this place several years ago and we...

convenient to Hotel Lina, it's at the entrance to the hotel. Very interesting menu, not what you'd expect from the location and the owner and wait staff are exceptional...

Our friends recommended we go here and it did not disappoint. We were greeted as we exited our cab by Mr Polo and escorted right to our table. Definitely a family run establishment, simple decor, but very welcoming and pleasant atmosphere. My seon, wife and I selected different fish dishes, and they were all excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Mariscos Polo. The service was friendly and attentive. Their seafood was nicely embellished with a variety of sauces. Try the shrimp tacos and the beer battered shrimp appetizer!

A little off the beaten path, but worth a side trip for lunch. Literally no one there when we went, but at least we got very good service. Good food and good experience.

A bit hard to find - best to take a cab so you are dropped off right out front. Our party included 6 adults and 2 children (ages 6 &9). They don't have a kids menu, but offered to make anything for the kids (kids had quesadilla & chicken sandwich). When they took the adults drink order, they also took... More

Stopped in for lunch this week. The corn soup was ok, the shrimp salad delicious. We have also had dinner there and they know how to cook fish
