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!

“On the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This is on the beach so it is a great place to cool down. They have fans, good drinks and great coconut shrimp.

“I have eaten here many times.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is my favorite restaurant in Puerto Vallarta. I love this location much better than the old one.
The shrimp is always excellent. A great view of the Ocean and warm friendly atmosphere. I will be enjoying a meal there in November.

“Best shrimp in PV”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

We first discovered this place while we were on a cruise in March, had the best lunch of that entire week here. My husband & I decided to return in October, it was our first lunch stop as we had been craving their jumbo camarones en ajo sauce. Guacamole was made tableside- could've used some jalepenos though! We returned that night for a light dinner-I had caesar salad-hubby fish tacos. Martin the owner was very welcoming & invited us back for the live music the next night, that was also great, just had wine then. Planning on dinner there tonight to end our great week of delicious food in PV!
