Authentic Mexican and Good Service

In the mood for Mexican that's good, authentic and reasonable priced I can now recommend the Newington location of Puerto Vallarta. I've been to the Avon, Middletown, and Southington (personal fav) locations. I've been to the city of Puerto Vallarta and can say the cuisine at the restaurant is... read more

Large portions. The shrimp appetizer could have been a meal. The Guacamole was made fresh right at the table. Took enough home for 2 more meals.

We have been coming here for many years. This past weekend I was taken out by friends for my birthday. We never mentioned to the staff our reason for being there. As I started opening up a gift bag the staff suddenly appeared singing and serving me a dessert while putting a huge sombrero on my head. We were so... More

I am not the biggest fan of Mexican food, but I have to say this place hit the nail on the head. From the phenomenal employees to the delicious food, I just had to give this place a five-star rating. The employees are also very good with my nut allergy, which is something that I feel is extremely important for... More

Arrived around 6pm, extremely busy and opted for two seats at the bar. JuanCarlos was our bartender and he greeted us immediately. Remained attentive for entire visit. Tableside guac, de Guillermo, despite the busy atmosphere, was expedient and awesome! We ordered a house special burrito, it was delicious and fresh! Felt comfortable to take our time, it's clear they care... More

The food is good and the waitstaff is attentive and fast. Really great spot for friends or family, large or small gatherings. The only issue is the mariachi band on the weekends. They play SO LOUDLY that you have to stop any conversations until they leave the section. Really annoying. Otherwise a great spot! Fajitas for 2 are the best!

We went here on a Saturday night and it was pretty busy. The service is always quick and friendly and good regardless. The mole poblano here is definitely worth it. It is the best I've had outside of Puerto Penasco Mexico, and San Angel inn at Epcot. Absolutely delicious. The refried beans are also exceptional. Other people in our party... More

The food is superb, the best Mexican restaurant that I have eaten in to date, the whole place is just buzzing with atmosphere and there is a good variety of tequilas and margaritas. Highly recommended.
