Best coconut shrimp anywhere but you must go on Mondays. Shrimp come in that day. Reservations are suggested. Love the owners.

We stopped in here after out dolphin encounter with two kids (3yrs, 5yrs) and had a great lunch! Every item was perfect. Fries were fresh cut and the kids quesadillas were good enough that I would eat a lot! My wife had the best cheeseburger she has had in a while and my fish tacos were extremely taste filled with...

If you're in the area this is a must eat place. It's clean, welcoming, beautiful setting with people who want to serve beautiful food.

We eat here every time we are in Nuevo Vallarta. This is a small restaurant located right on the marina. The quality of the food is always excellent and creative with both continental and Mexican flavors. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is relaxed and Estudio is always a welcome break from whatever resort you are staying at.

Nice location overlooking the marine in Nuevo Vallarta; good food, nice, friendly people, low prices. Owner is an artist, hence the name of the place.

If we are in the mood for breakfast this is our favorite place. The food is always extremely fresh and cooked to order. The Verdi Chiliquilles are incredible. Half the time I custom order my food and they never miss.

We love this small intimate venue. Missed coconut shrimp night :( But had a very good special of a thick dinner stew/soup. Others had a mahi mahi special that was excellent. We meant to try their breakfast but never managed to get there. Service is good and it is always a treat to talk to owner/artist and hear his stories!!!

This was my first time there. I thought I would try because of the reviews. I wasn't disappointed. The pancakes were wonderful. Along with the pancakes were eggs, chorizo and a large cup of fresh fruit. I'll be back to try dinner.
