Description: The Blue Shrimp Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta is the best seafood restaurant in the area, long time established. Situated off Olas Altas Beach, on the ocean with spectacular daily view of the sunset, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant is a fun atmosphere with occasional live entertainment, under a large palapa roof and ‘boat-deck’ feel. Open for lunch and dinner, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant serves mouth-watering seafood and shrimp concoctions that you cannot find anywhere else! The restaurant is a great place to bring the family, celebrate a birthday, romantic dinner, or special event. Come sit down with us, right at the end of the Malecon and feel the breeze of the Banderas Bay, it’s Shrimply The Best!

“PV has much better to offer”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Don't waste your time at this restaurant. Everything is dried out or over seasoned with garlic. My husband ordered filet mignon and was served fish. I've never known a waiter to ask how done you want your fish prepared. When we tried to explain that that was not his order the waiter replied rudely and really didn't care to make things right. Of our whole trip to PV this was our only disappointment.

“A genuine rip off on the beach”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

the drinks are so expensive I almost couldn't believe the price...

prices worse than Manhattan and the bartenders are not exceptional with their recipes by any stretch of the imagination. Ignore and avoid this tourist trap unless it's just to walk through and see the way the ramada/palapa was built. Once a great place...now a total shame.
