“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Great dinner! Finally, after all the terrific reviews, we had dinner at Ernesto's! We were not disappointed. Ribs....goodness, one order to split and we brought some home! Very tender with delicious bbq sauce as has been said before. Choice of potato and perfectly cooked vegetable assortment. We also shared the small tortilla soup...very flavorful. Service was excellent. Two great choices for our dinner! Comfortable, pleasant atmosphere around the swimming pool. The staff is quite friendly and attentive. The menu is extensive...it will be a tough decision to try other dishes after having the ribs and tortilla soup!

“Ernestos In Nuevo Vallarta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Another couple excellent meal at Ernestos. Every time we are in Nuevo Vallarta we make a point of going for supper at least twice while we are there. This time we took another family and they were just as impressed as we are. Fine food, friendly family run restaurant. Not to be missed!!!

“Best Ribs and Tortilla Soup Anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is fabulous restaurant for singles to families. They are known for there wonderful Ribs and Tortilla Soup. The best anywhere, not just Vallarta. Not a fancy setting, family style with tablecloths, tv, lots of plants all around on the patio. Outside sitting with fans and a over open over hang.
All the food on the menu is good.
They are open for breakfast-dinner, same menu all day.
Enjoy!

“Dine refined”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Ernestos is tops in our fave places to enjoy a great meal. Marnie and I, Frank from Ontario love this place. We have brought many friends here to dine with us and they all raved about the wonderful service and the homemade food. Awesome! There is no better chicken totilla soup anywhere on the west coast of Mexico. This is a must dine location. Bring your friends and be prepared to be sated. We'll be there in January and February 2013. Can't wait!

“Great Ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

The ribs are great for the Saturday all you can eat, but it gets very crowded. We had a long wait the the service could have been better. You do need a reservaiton.
