Let me count the ways. They don't provide a glass of water when asked but rather want you to buy a bottle. Tourist trap alert. The steak was mediocre at best. Tough and stringy rib eye. Nothing special about the sides. Bread was average at best. The limonada almost made it but was a tad weak. Wife said her wine was good and it was a generous pour. Server never checked back with us after serving our meal. And to top it off, they did not have 20 pesos for change after only being open an hour with only three tables occupied.
There are many, many better places to eat on the north side of this bay and in Vallarta. Don't know how they make it except it is close to Paradise Village so many can walk and a short cab ride for others. We live almost directly across the street and had never gone due to hearing and reading mixed reviews. Only went to night because we had a 50% off coupon. Won't waste another dining out opportunity on it if they moved it onto our property. Just mediocre in every way. Wasted dining out opportunity.
