I know it's low season, but with the name Prime and located on a marina close to a major luxury resort, I truly felt we were going to an upscale steak and fish house. It was quite a disappointment. Less than a handful of patrons were present and nothing was upscale. The menu reminded me of a pizza menu. We... More

The wait staff are superb, good food, the mexican coffee is the best. The atmosphere is very nice inside, outside backs up to the bay so you have a wonderful experience whether you dine in or out. Wish their wine menu was a bit better, but alas this is Mexico.

The setting on the river was beautiful but if you sit outside make sure you have your bug repellant on. The steak was cooked to perfection and as always in Mexico order your meat cooked more than you usually do and it will be perfect !

Prime 159 was an excellent choice while on vacation in Nuevo Vallarta. The food was excellent, the staff was most accommodating. Nuevo Vallarta was my girlfriend birthday present, Prime 159 was her choice, in better words it was excellent.

Carlos was great - food was perfect. We got bit by Mosquitos outside so went in and it was all good from there. Hubby had the filet and mushrooms with peppercorn sauce and I had archerra with chimichiri finished with a creme brûlée and shot of tequila. Highly recommend!!!

We have eaten here a few times. It's very good. You need to make a reservation as it's very popular - specially with people staying at the nearby Mayan Palace resort because it is within walking distance of the Mayan resort.

Our family has eaten at Prime 159 every summer for several years. The food is always excellent and the service fabulous. We really liked out waiter Antonio and hope to ask for him next time! I highly recommend any of the steaks and the calamari appetizer was some of the best I have ever eaten.

My wife and I dined at Prime 159 during our recent stay in Nuevo Vallarta. The restaurant came highly recommended by a number of people we met on our trip. This restaurant did not disappoint. We had a table over looking the estuary as the sun was going down. The food and the service were both very good. Prices were... More
