WOW! This is a must stop if you are visiting Nuevo Vallarta. It was our best meal, by far, this week. The restaurant is in an outdoor setting with wonderful lighting hanging from the trees. Just beautiful. While there is a menu, they prefer to ask the group your taste preferences and inquire about any allergies. Once they have determined... More

This was a yummy restaurant and kid friendly. The seating is outside with tropical atmosphere. The waiter came asked us what kind of things we like to eat and then told the cook. We didn't really know what we were getting to eat till he brought it out. The food was delicious and we enjoyed it very much. He even... More

We were actually going to eat at Fajita Republic but found out it was closed when we got there. I don't eat seafood so we were going to head somewhere else. The gentlemen told us he 140 recipes that weren't even on the menu and he could make pretty much whatever we wanted. Everyone was so glad we stayed! Each... More

We were lucky to find this hidden gem on our visit this week. Had a fabulous dinner where Jorge and his staff asked what we liked and custom made a dinner specific to our taste. We never even looked at a menu, and never needed to. He knew exactly what to make us, and we were very impressed with his... More

My husband and I and three of our children visited this restaurant in mid August. Jorge approached our table and asked us if any of us had allergies. That NEVER happens so for us, it was a true blessing not to have to "mention" it. As it turns out, our daughter has a gluten, dairy, egg and nut allergies. Jorge... More

This is the best restaurant my husband and I have been to in the Nuevo Vallarta/Puerto Vallarta area. We would recommend it to EVERYONE!! One of the managers there is George. Ask for him if you go. He will design your meals to fit what types of food you like. We DEFINITELY recommend the fajita volcano. Ours came with steak,... More

We had Jorge and Jesse as the host, Josep and Emir as waiters, Triny as the cashier, Erick, Jorge Alberto, and Mauaeil in the kitchen, and Mr. Horse (isidro) as the bartender. All of these people deserve credit for making this so much... More

Small restaurant and with fresh fish ... let Jorge the manager make suggestions he knows what is good and how to get it prepared. The night we ate there he had fresh tuna and made us tuna ceviche as a first course and seared tuna for dinner and both were excellent. Also excellent choices we have had there are the... More

We had an amazing dinner... We would never have chosen the dishes that they suggested for us... but we were adventurous this night, and so we went for their suggestions! It was absolutely amazing. Possibly the best meal we've had in Mexico. The tuna to start and the shrimp/scallops/rice dish/ the molcajete... the guacamole, the fried ice cream, the Coffee... More
