“bacon wrap shrimp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We were staying at the Flamingo’s Resort when we asked our main man Reynaldo at the pool what a good place to eat would be Nuevo Vallarta. He recommended Tino’s La Laguna restaurant because he knew several employees there that are on his local soccer team. It was a great meal! The shrimp entrées were numerous; I selected the stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon. There were seven large shrimp on the plate, amazing taste and presentation. I was with a party of seven and everyone enjoyed their meals. Five of us had some type of shrimp dinner. The price was very reasonable and a great atmosphere to dine in. When we told them Reynaldo recommended them to us they went out of their way to make it an enjoyable evening. Plan ahead on weekends and make reservations.

“Best Shrimp Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I bring my family here every year. The food is great and the service never disappoints. The shrimp are always great. Sarandeado seems to have been invented here!

“Great Shrimp / Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Celebrated Xmas Dinner here, and was not disappointed. The different types of Shrimp did me in. Must admit, that I ate here twice. Pricey, but good food. They made our xmas a delight with the best Coconut i've ever had.

“Enjoyed it even more the 2nd time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Went here last visit to NV. We were in a lousy mood - we had been traveling all day, it was pouring rain, our hotel room wasn't ready, etc. We end up here, and Vidal, our waiter, had us all smiling within minutes. My daughter speaks Spanish, and he chatted with her, then teased me because I got drunk after 2 sips of strawberry daiquiri (I never drink and it was so refreshing!). Really enjoyed our meals - daughter got pasta and shrimp dish and I got fish with spinach sauce.

“We liked it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Our party of 16 was greeted with open arms (and why not, big check walking) It was Christmas week and the place was packed. The first thing that happened was that the young ones made a dash to watch the turtle pond, which was alive with much to see. For our table, we enjoyed very attentive service from the staff, our orders arrived correctly and in a timely fashion as would be expected for such a large group.

I don't recall seeing anyone's plate being picked up with much left on it and smiles and cheers were shared by all. Yes we did find is a bit pricey although being a prior restaurant owner in Mexico, I understand that many service providers always raise their prices around the holidays and those costs usually get passed along to the consumer, not really fair, but that's Mexico.

Our drinks were well made and served quickly, appetizers served hot and tasty. The main courses, only two were duplicates, were all very good in presentation, portion and preparation, maybe we were luckier than other reviewers who were not so happy. Any restaurant can have a bad night but some people are just miserable to begin with and look for reasons to complain.

We enjoyed or meal, my family had been coming here for years and still agree that we will return again.
