We met a local coming out of El Sazon while we were walking by. We stopped to look at the menu (no hustler at the front door) and the gentleman coming out told us this is the favorite joint for all the locals. We were by on a Saturday at 8:00 and there was only one other local couple dining.... More

This place looks like a small local restaurant . We were sent here by a local business owner. We ordered the guacamole first to test it out . It was excellent so we stayed for dinner. I had the fish Veracruz and it was delicious. My friend had the grilled octopus and it was excellent. Reasonable prices and large portions.

My family was in Puerto Vallarta for some shopping and a nice lunch. Hot, tired, and hungry a local salesman led us to this restaurant when we asked where he suggested we go...we were NOT disappointed. Great food! Ivan thanks for the great service and yummy margarita!

We had our last meal in Puerto Vallarta at this place. Great service, good Mexican food, and reasonable prices. Not fancy, but clean and very good.

My husband and I visited El Sazon del Aca for dinner with our one year old son, and it was absolutely wonderful. We have long travelled to Mexico, and this is some of the best authentic Mexican food we've had. The tortilla soup was heavenly, as were many of the fish dishes. We sampled a few different dishes and shared,... More

The owner was great as was the food and drink.....and a very good value about a block from the beach. We had a great time. Another TA score.

I had a mahi mahi there. It was soaked in oil and didn't meet my expectations at all. I also had a pins colada which was fresh and okay. The waiter was a nice guy and the location is good.

And a great chef knows how to flavor the food inside. We ate there last evening and I got the special: two filets stuffed with spinach, mushrooms, shrimp, cheese and flavor. My friends got the Stuffed Palblano Pepper and Mahi Mahi Vera Cruz - also both very good. Its nice quiet atmosphere and wonder staff (owners?) reasonably priced.

We love to find the local spots not too far off the beaten path and this fit the bill. Highly recommended by the locals. You get about twice the size of Mahi and lobster that you would get for the same price just a block away. I asked for hot sauce and they mixed up some fresh stuff for me... More
