Beautiful sunset dining if you hurry before closing time.

Our party of 4 enjoyed very attentive service from Ricardo when we went to enjoy the sunset and try their menu. We started at the beach loungers and as soon as the sun was set we quickly moved to the raised dining area to get our food order in before 7pm (the bar ends at 7:30pm). The dining area... read more

A quick trip from downtown PV to this little beach club with the best loungers was a highlight of the week. The surf not so treacherous, delicious ceviche and fantastic service made for a sun and fun filled afternoon. I can't wait to go back!

Yes the location is great but this is a review about the restaurant. As far as the food is concerned, this does not deserves more than 3 dots. Very ordinary soggy burger. Very boring fish ceviche for my girlfriend. Not exactly cheap for this sort of food but you have to pay for the location. For people with no access... More

Enjoy the sea breeze under an umbrella or spend some time on the beach..ETC will let you do both. We loved their service and the excellent chicken tacos. There were not very many people there so we had our pick of the lounges. Our friends go there every time they visit Puerto Valarta and we could all understand why!

We unexpectedly stumbled upon this during a beach walk. We were very tired of eating on our resort with the same ole food at Dreams and decided to give this a try only a few hundred feet north by beach. The food was incredible and the service by Riccardo even better as he accommodated our 6 person party with a... More

The most relaxing Beach Club with low relaxing music and great food. We have visited we have eaten and we recommend you visit 5 star.

ETC is located beachfront in Nuevo Vallarta. A great place to grab a drink on the beach. And, don't hesitate to eat a meal here. The menu is simple but the food is great. We enjoyed the seafood platter that included grilled shrimp and sea bass and steamed mussels. The grilled seafood was drizzled with a garlic and orange zest... More

We stumbled on Etc. just by fluke. We were looking for 3x3 and walked 'way too far, doubled back and fell on Etc. We were so hot and thirsty it was like an oasis. All we had were three beers and a water which cost us a pricey $20,but it was a cool little place right on the beach with... More

Our favourite beachside bar on the Nuevo Vallarta beachfront (Bay of Banderas). We discovered it about 15 years ago, when it was nothing more than a hut, few tables & chairs and some loungers. Now there are many hotels nearby so it is more upscale, but still retains the beach-hut vibe. When in Nuevo, we always beach-walk there & have... More
