I laughed when I read the reviews people have left on here. Good or not so good, they are probably accurate.
Twisted Palms doesn't serve food but there is not a bar category so it's under restaurant because it deserves to be a tripadvisor favorite.
This isn't the kind of place where you will see huge crowds or a guy dressed like a frog. This is the place you will meet transplants or, at least, seasonal transplants from the United States and Canada. Let me tell you why that matters. . . one, they can tell you, in English, all the good places to go (for anything) and two, they get your jokes! Nothing lost in translation.
Al, the owner and only worker except for an occasional ice runner, shows movies on the rooftop every night, offers really great drink specials and pours awesome cocktails. I have been there several times and have found him to be funny, interesting and always attentive as a one man show can be!
Most people are not "in the know" to even find this place but if you want to be "in the know" of Puerto Vallarta, get the best tips (in English) and chill out from all the touristy BS this is the place for you.
Also, when in stock, he has the VERY BEST beer bottle coolies for sale! Grab me one if you can!
