“Fresh and affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

I love how before you even sit down they have complementary tequila already on the table. A lot of people seemed to be having a fun ol time. I was pleased how great the quality of fresh fish was and low price. I got the (huge) ceviche tostadas and they were about $2 each. I wish the waiters didn't make me feel so rushed.... Every time I set my fork down for a second they were trying to take my plate away. I wanted to eat every last bite!

“Nuthin' Fancy, Just Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

A local friend of ours in Puerto Vallarta, highly recommended this place. Boy was he right! Tequilla and dessert included with the entrees. We all ordered the special lobster, which is basically lobster, shrimp, fish and a side if rice all for one low price of $20.00 U.S!

“Always a fun experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Given that each table is offered complimentary shots of tequila, fish soup, dessert and an after dinner drink, they could slack off with the main course and still come out a winner. Fortunately, this is not the case. We particularly enjoyed the fresh seafood salad. In addition, just about all the entrees are about the same price and almost any combination of selections ( shrimp one, two or three ways, for example) is OK with them. It's a sad walk to the restaurant, though, as one passes empty restaurant after empty restaurant until finally arriving here-- which is (justifiably) always crowded.
