Tacos, turtles, and maybe, a croc

Interesting setting for a restaurant. From many tables, you can see the turtles swimming in the marshy land. Staff & regulars swear that a crocodile visits every so often. Choose any dish made with local seafood (fish, shrimp) and you will be very happy. Portions are large and nicely presented... read more

We were referred to this lindoor-outdoor restaurant by others and were very pleased with the food and service. It's just a 35-peso cab ride from the Grand Mayan and well worth the short trip outside the main gate. We both had the avocado stuffed with shrimp and covered with Thousand Island dressing as an appetizer. About 15-18 luscious cold shrimp... More

Great outdoor/indoor atmosphere and feeding the turtles was a treat. My husband had the whole fish-it was huge and good flavor. I had a seafood dish that was served in actual seashells-cool, cheesy, and tasty! The staff was fun and we did shots at the bar with our waiter. We will go back on our next visit!

We always eat here when in Mexico. They bring out three sauces. One is Tomatillo, one is chopped up jalapenos w/ tomatoes, and the other is a hot sauce. Tortilla to eat prior to ordering. The marlin taco's are good, the shrimp taco's are good. It's all good. The view is perfect to see down below in the town, the... More

This place was great. From the view overlooking the lagoon (more like a pond where we are from!) to the mariachi band, the atmosphere projected a feel of a good time. The food presentation was beautiful . Our server was very attentive and the manager stopped by to make sure everything was good. We had a great experience and would... More

The service was excellent - and we were not bothered at all by timeshare sales. We started with margaritas, which were very good and a generous portion, moved on to guacamole and then a whole red snapper, which was shown to us prior to them filleting it, cooked to perfection and finished with the bananas flambe. Very nice evening..

I always enjoy eating off the grid especially when we're staying at a resort all week. Friends and our cab driver suggested we eat once there during our stay. I'm happy we did, great food and atmosphere. We were even offered a free shot! I didn't appreciate getting hassled about time shares. The girl was very pushy after we let... More

My wife and I have been to La Laguna on two ocassions while vacationing in Nuevo Vallarta. Both times the food and service have been wonderful. Great margiritas and wonderful seafood. The bacon wrapped shrimp are to die for. Be sure to ask for food to feed the turtles. If you're lucky you'll get to see the croc that lives... More

We've eaten at La Laguna at least once each year during our visit to the Mayan complex. It's a short cab ride from the Mayan complex and always a fun evening with a very attentive staff in a clean restaurant with great food and drinks. Never have we been disappointed, nor have our guests. When we ask family and/or friends... More
