This restaurant is only 5 blocks inland from the street which crosses the river near the sea. It is run by the chef Miriam Flores who is passionate about preserving her regional cuisine. You need to book , do it it's worth it . The restaurant is in the rustic courtyard of a small hotel. The menu is quite limited... More

I live part time in Vallarta and had done just about every activity except a cooking class and thought I'd been to every good restaurant in town. During a two week span with no visitors I decided to take the cooking class. It was so delightful I made a reservation at the restaurant for a time my husband would be... More

She should be on Food Network!! Won't be surprised to see her on there one of these days. Great experience. After the class we even duplicated the recipes in a friend's kitchen. It turned out just as good as it was in class. This is one of those activities you may not think of doing while on vacation, but it... More

Our favorite restaurant of our trip. A small open-air courtyard seating, off the busy street, but so peaceful and real. No view or nightlife spot --just great food. This is a gem. The service was just right, professional (European waiter) but friendly and helpful. The chef is the story here. Have the guacamole appetizer, and a classic margarita (both the... More

The cooking classes are amazing, with a professional, charming Chef who is Cordon Bleu trained. You can choose hands on or just watch and learn. The dinners/food is prepared to perfection. Best Fish, Best Steak, this restaurant does it right!! I highly recommend for anyone visiting to make this a priority!!

This year we have eaten at La Luna half a dozen times and the personal attention to our food is again unmatched by any other restaurant in PV. Miriam personally attends to each meal, than visits your table to verify that the food she prepared was to your satisfaction. It's always fantastic! For desert order the chocolate lava cake, you...

We chose La Luna as it was in the top 20 of TA and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and beautifully presented---hats off to Miriam the chef and owner! The waiters were professional and knowledgeable of the menu and wine list. We loved the ambiance of outdoor dining in the courtyard of an old hotel, formerly a... More

We experienced a wonderful afternoon last week at La Luna for one of Miriam Flores cooking classes. There are different classes to choose from depending on the week of the month it is. From start to finish Miriam made it totally enjoyable with her knowledge, personality and skills in the kitchen. The courses that she prepared and the ones that... More

Enjoyed a cooking class on March 19, 2014 with Chef Miriam Flores. It was a wonderful experience with a great chef. Classically trained but with a rustic flair. The food was delicious & the chef was terrific! Highly recommended!

We selected this restaurant because it was listed in the top 20 and was of the beaten track. The taxi driver had a little trouble finding the restaurant, but we went armed with the street name and number and the cross streets. That came in handy. It is a quaint little restaurant. There are limited number of tables. One can... More
