We having being dining at Estudio since it opened, but interaction with customers has gone down the tubes. Food is still good, but there are so many... More

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 enjoyed breakfast here a number of times and lunch on one day. The fresh ingredients and varied flavours along with the beautiful scenery make this a memorable place to eat.

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.

Well managed quaint restaurant where great breakfasts are served along with delicious lunches and dinners. Art studio is part of the building and the combination of the two make for a pleasant experience.

This sweet little restaurant fronts an artist's studio with unique offerings, and faces the Nuevo Vallarta marina. It is one of my favorite breakfast/brunch locations in the area. They also serve dinner, although I haven't tried it for dinner, I hear it is excellent. The breakfast omelet offerings are unusual, and unusually delicious. The bread they serve is simply delicious,... More
