If want the best food in Vallarta, this is the place...if you are willing to pay for it. You get what you pay for. The servers can be a bit dismissive at times and it could use a spucing up. Otherwise I would have given it five stars.

If you want to be royalty for an evening, this is it. The food is perfectly seasoned, and presented as a piece of art. Be sure to tell them if it is a birthday or anniversary.

Had a great dinner, food was amazing and service even better. A member of my family of wasn't feeling well due to low blood sugar and staff was very accommodating and helpful. The ambience was very relaxed and peaceful. Marvin and Enrique provided exceptional service, very impressed.

We came across this place on one of the online review websites, and decided to check it out. I must say that the place surpassed all expectations. It is somewhat away from the tourist tracks, but still pretty much in the Old Town. The place has nice atmosphere, interior and exceptional food and service. Our waiters Alejandro and Manuel did...

Between the sublime flavors and the incredible violin and piano, this meal was more than just food. It was a religious experience! Israel and Rafael made it even more enjoyable with their attentive and kind service.
