“My experience at Passionflower, Yelapa, Mexico.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Passionflower Gardens is a welcoming place in the jungle of Yelapa. Not in the main village, its just a short walk upriver, but well worth the extra 8 or 10 minutes it takes to get there. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed and the food is fantastic. The roast beef was not only the best we’ve had in Mexico, but maybe anywhere! Prices are most fair in Yelapa for the quality. Liana is the chef and new owner. She just took over this year and has done a great job of putting it together. Open Mike attracts some very talented people too. An enjoyable experience all around!

“Like Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We ate with April @ Passion Flower Gardens for the 2012 Election returns party. It was such an amazing family at home type atmosphere. Burger, Potato salad, coleslaw, spice cake were all outstanding. We had a great time and meet new friends. Thanks for having us!

“Meh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Great place to meet people, good drinks. Meal was mediocre, which was disappointing because I chose this place to celebrate my birthday. Had fun, but would not recommend the food.

Hello, thanks for your review, dated Oct. 25. Just curious about when you were here, since the restaurant has been closed for many months.
The restaurant is re-opening under new management next week, and we hope you will come and give it a try. There is a new menu and new chef, with the same great jungle atmosphere.

“Excellent Place to Meet People!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

Great place to meet people, mostly ex-pats who live in Yelapa... Every Thursday night April makes wonderful spaghetti and passion fruit rum drinks! Passion fruit comes from the trees in the yard! Wonderful!
