I went to this place because of the positive reviews on TA. Sure, I've heard the loud music when I was entering the venue but I somehow thought I might get used to it. Didn't happen. The music was way too loud to have a conversation. Annoying. The interior of the venue was clean, nice and traditional looking. The place... More

The Ceviche Tostado was the most refreshing thing I at in Puerto Vallarta. The Fish is cooked and mixed with fresh produce and seems light and not as filling as anything else I ate out here. You have to be careful with the oil based sauce because it's very powerful. The place is clean and they also serve hibiscus tea... More

If you want to enjoy the real local atmosphere in a tourist city - there it is! Great food at extremely reasonable prices and above all and very important: the friendliness of the staff - we could go there every day!!

Came here as part of a food tour (Vallarta Eats- yummy). We had a ceviche taco. I don't like ceviche like I can get in Arizona and a girl on the tour didn't like raw fish, but this ceviche is not raw. It was very good. I was intrigued by large alcoholic drinks being served to another table (someone uploaded... More

This is a great place with a mix of locals and Americans/Canadians. The ceviche was really great and was interesting because it is blanched and shredded rather than thinly cut raw fish. Large assortment of salsas/hot sauces. I would definitely go back.

We too stopped here on our Vallarta Eats Taco food tour. We had the fish ceviche which was excellent! We were told that if we returned...be prepared for it to be very noisy. True to their word.....it is beyond noisy. The music is very loud. Do not plan on holding a conversation. However, that being said....the food was great. My... More

We stopped here, as part of a food tour. They have an outstanding cerviche we were urged to try. Generous drinks, attentive service by a fun group of employees. We were there on 3 Kings Day, and our guide had brought a "Rosca", a delicious buttery cake with a baby Jesus baked in...part of the ceremony and tradition. You get... More

The music from the jukebox is so freaking loud that you may believe someone would start dancing like in a dance club. Prices are mostly accessible to your budget, seafood is the main ingredient to almost all dishes but also have beef and chicken in one or two varieties...if your stomach is highly susceptible to react to mexican cuisine ask...

I always take my friends who are visiting here and they are always impressed with the great seafood and the price. The only downside is a loud jukebox. There is a photo of Michael Jordan with one of the beautiful mesaras and if it is good enough for MJ it is good enough for me. I love that place !!

Only open until 8pm, so get there earlier. Huge portions and so very much cheaper than closer to the beach. The shrimp in butter and garlic is increcible -- and I had 17 nice-sized shrimp for 120 pesos! That would cost you $20-30 closer to the beach. Very attentive service. "medium" guacamole would easily satisfy 4 people, so we had... More
