After being closed for some time, reopened and then closed again, they are back. What a wonderful place to sit and watch the river tumble by. And for the record, we are not associated with them at all. Live very near so decided to see if they were infact open.m George "SINATRA" welcomed us and we sat on the third... More

When the taxi dropped us off in front of this hotel, we were a little wary. My group were early eaters (5-6), so there was nobody there while we were there. But our waiter was so kind and the service was outstanding. To be honest, this is a little embarrassing to admit, but we are from the south and our... More

We were actually heading to find a decent steak and had someone with us who had been to a place a few years ago that was within walking distance of where we were staying - when we got there ( in pouring rain) it had turned into a taco bar, so we grabbed cabs and headed here. The ribs are... More

Very good mexican food with excellent, very friendly service. Great salsa. Some unusual mexican dishes made very well. Probably best for a lunch as we had it. I don't feel it's that special for a dinner.

My wife and I were shopping at the local fruit & vegetable market and were getting hungry...well my wife was and I have learned it is better to feed her than listen to the whining. So we came across this place and the waiter meekly asked us to check out the place. No strong sell or pushiness about his approach...almost... More

This was always our must go to place for dinner before they closed. We were really excited when we found out that Los Arbolitos was opened again. We had to give it a try for dinner. The location is fantastic, and just watching the river is very relaxing. It seems as though they are still trying to figure out what... More

We stopped here for a beer after our long Sunday walk through the hills of Puerto Vallarta and were treated to the best food we've had since we arrived! The restaurant has been closed for two years and is now under new management by Marissa, a delightful woman from Mexico City. She and her experienced staff prepared us food based... More

We've been going to Los Arbolitos since 1991, but this review is from the first time we've been there since it reopened under new management after the unfortunate death of the previous owner of many years. We noticed a significant change right off the bat. The open sky dining area on the third floor is gone. It has been walled... More
