Wonderful location and staff

I mistakenly had avoided this place because I thought it only served meat. Buy, was I wrong! We had delicious small clams in white wine sauce, red snapper crevice, tuna medallions and grilled red snapper. All were delicious but the grilled fish was a touch dry. When I explained that to our waiter... read more

have been to this restaurant several times, once in the company of one of Canada's top chefs. He ordered everything on the menu for us to share family style. great night. The steaks compare to the best steak houses, but the prices are that of a mid-level eatery. Will go back for sure.

Five of us went for dinner our last night in town. Being from the Chicago area, we are used to good steaks and they didn't disappoint.I had prime rib which was phenomenal. Son had the flank steak and he loved the sauce that was served with it. His girlfriend had the filet, her son had the mac and cheese, and... More

Delicious food and excellent wines, but here's our sad experience: We arrived at the place from the marina entrance (in the back). There was no host or hostess so we just sat at a table and then one of the waiters came to us with the hostess and started setting up the table while asking her:"do we let them stay... More

Our group of four adults had dinner and drinks. We were very happy with the food and service. The ladies had the Mexican coffee after dinner and the performance and drinks were great. We have dined there for the last 3 yrs and always had a good meal with fair pricing. We recommend.

We went to this restaurant originally because we had a discount, and then upon reading the menu, because the food looked good and the prices were reasonable (9 oz usda filet mignon dinner for $15). We were staying at the Grand Mayan and this restaurant is a $3 taxi trip (plus tip, so very close. It is on a canal... More

Service is friendly an attentive, drinks, we prefer American style cocktails and they do an excellent job with them. The sauce in which the brisk it is served is great. I recommend you remember that it is adjacent to Porto Bello Nueva Vallarta which is also excellent though I didn't go there this year so have not reviewed it.

A lovely setting overlooking the river. Absolutely one the best steaks we've had! For an amazing appetizer, try the "tuna on the rock ". Delicious! We ate on the early side, so our service was the best! $$$$
