I visited the restaurant since it was recommended to me by the hotel staff. I order the ceviche and it was just awesome. I had the ceviche sampler which include three different kind, good mojitos and excellent staff.

You MUST visit this restaurant when in PV. Everything from food, drinks, service, value, and location was perfect. I had the best fried red snapper here, sooo fresh and perfectly cooked. The ceviche sampler was amazing as well, and all the drinks we tried were delicious. The owner was super friendly as well and stopped by everyone's table to chat... More

We were just taking a walk down a street and saw several people standing on the sidewalk in front of this little taco place. The people told us these were the best tacos around, go put our name in and wait. So we did and were not at all disappointed. Kind of a tight fit, but totally worth it.

All four in my party were pleased with the dinners and drinks at this facility. The service was exceptional and a nice view from the 2nd floor.

Good food and service - GREAT Mojitos. I have food allergies and they were more than helpful in understanding my situation - making items that not only were delicious but I could eat. The mojitos were so good we kept going back.

In the last 3 years been to Joe Jack's 12 times, and never had a bad experience. To start off, your met by a friendly face and seated promptly. Food is very good, the Octupus is best in the city, guac is excellent, and snapper is great. The service is quick, and personable. The ladies who work upstairs are incredible.... More

What a delight! Great ambiance! Delicious lime or strawberry Mojito's - 1/2 price specials during Happy Hour on the 2nd floor! Then add a cool evening breeze...just wonderful... My wife and I shared the ancho-chili marinated barbecued Red Snapper on a stick....our waitress deboned it in about 15 seconds! Just mouth watering! Overall it was outstanding...prices are reasonable, especially for... More

I know what you thinking, but have you ever had homemade butterscotch pudin with bacon? I have at Joe Jacks and it was delicious! Fun people around you, fun staff, and good food!

Ate here last week...my baja style grilled fish tacos were delicious, someone else in my travel party had a burger and said it was one of the best she had ever eaten in Mexico. Be sure to sit on the second floor...in addition to getting more of a breeze, the ambience is so lovely, with colorful lights and vintage film... More
