“good food/drinks, great company, off the beaten track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

If you enjoy good drinks and home-cooked food and meeting interesting people, expats Rick and Sara's bar/restaurant is sure to please. Mordidas is located on the second floor with views of the Rio Cuale in in the Buenos Aires colonia, where you will experience a primarily Mexican neighborhood just a short distance from the more touristed areas. The place is small and charming, with an informal atmosphere that leads to lively conversation among the guests and the hosts. Rick does the cooking and Sara makes the (strong) drinks and serves guests. Oysters in various forms are standard items plus a rotating menu of lasagna, fried chicken, chili, and such (check the website before you come to see what's cooking). Come for the inexpensive, good food and drinks, and you'll surely leave with some new friends as well as insights about life in Puerto Vallarta and the interesting folks who have made it their home -- even if only for a temporary visit.

“An adventure to get there but sooo worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

We know Rick and Sarah from the vallarta scene forum so thought we would check out their restaurant. What a great experience. Great little place overlooking the river in Paso Ancho. The beers were ice cold and so refreshing. My husband had the oysters and I just had fries and the chili. I know weird combo but was craving lol. The food was awesome and the company of the owners was great. I predict great things for this little place. Please get out of your comfort zone and wander on over to Paso Ancho for an unforgettable day out.

“Fun place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Had a very enjoyable time at Mordidas! Good friendly service, very reasonable prices and great drinks! I ordered the chili cheese dog and it is perfectly spiced not too hot at all! Loved it! It was loaded with chili, cheese and onions, so much I chose to eat it with my knife and fork! Had a yummy piña colada when we arrived then the red house wine with dinner and it was very good wine! Highly recommend Mordidas as the owners are very welcoming and interesting to talk to!
