AUTHENTIC MEXICAN CUISINE

We enjoyed the artistic decor, good service and tasty Mexican cuisine. The peanut soup and flan were delicious. A little off the beaten track, this restaurant was highly recommended by the hosts of our B&B.

Cute artsy décor. I had the Pork in green sauce, Hubby had the Mole. We both couldn't get enough. Drinks good too. If I went back I'd get the same dish. Seasoned perfectly. Very reasonable as well.

Loved being in a Mexican neighborhood away from the beach. WE had two kinds of stuffed chiles, both excellent. Probably our best meal in Puerto Vallarta!

Funky and fun with authentic Mexican food. About a kilometer from Olas Altos but easy to walk, this hidden spot pays homage to Frida and Diego in both decor and menu. Best mole I have eaten. Cream of peanut soup was highlight.

I enjoy the American-familiar Mexican food that's readily available throughout PV. So many restaurants are reassuringly clean with descent food very accessible to my Anglo pallet. But, after a few days of one satisfying, but cleaned-up, Mexican meal after another I start wanting something, well... more Mexican. That's when we book into the Red Cabbage. The restaurant's location, look, and... More

I admit it is a bit off the beaten track. But it us excellent and worth the few extra minutes to get to. Excellent old time restaurant.. Very good margaritas, very well prepared dishes, like in the real Mexico we all look for but can hardly find any more. The restaurant is very well decorated, artwise, and a lot of... More

A little out of the way but well worth it. Loved the staff and loved the food. The young lady at the door was delightful.

The food and ambience were distinctive and delightful. There are photos and paintings of famous people from Liz Taylor and Richard Burton to the Beatles and Mexican famous artists and performers as well. The food was unlike any we found in the more usual restaurants, it's authentic Mexican, some of which takes hours and hours to prepare and we found... More

our good friend had been here years ago and so we went back for a lunchtime cooking demo. Lola was delightful. Food was delicious. She has kept this place really special since 1981.
