    Reasonable priced tasty food
    Visited the restaurant on Sunday evening. The food was absolutely fantastic. Really big portions and really tasty food. Excellent service and very friendly staff. Very reasonable price 9 of us had a meal and 2 drinks each and the total bill was £140 (3600 pesos) would recommend

    Good for touristy
    We were with friends walking the Malecon on a Friday night. We were hungry and chose Day Off because there were more people eating there than other places in the vicinity. For a touristy joint, the prices were not too bad, but definitely higher than the the 45 pesos I paid the night before for 3 tacos. Husband and I had mango habanero wings, which were pretty good, on the border of almost too spicy, after the waitress said they were mild. We are in Mexico, so it's all relative and we like hot. Our friends shared a hefty mound of nachos and some traditional wings. They seemed to enjoy them. There was enough left over to take home, for both couples Music videos in the background blaring out the Stones, Queen, and other boomer bands had us playing "What that song??" They know how to catch us! Eating on the Malecon, in the restaurants, it appears the Mexican fare is geared towards the Canaduans and Amercans. Not really traditional Mexican. This isn't a bad thing, but if you want true Mexican dishes, get off the Malecon and go back a few streets. With the exception of the food vendors lined up and down, its a show and fight for the tourists.

    Meet and Greet
    This is a great place to meet and greet friends. The food is good except for the chicken fingers. Not the real thing. The wings are great. The atmosphere, the waiters, the drinks are all excellent. You can sit and people watch all day. There is a lot going on and to watch for sure. The washrooms are clean. The waiters here are what makes the place though, not the food so much. The music is good too, lots of oldies.

The cocktail selection here has regular and blender size. They were tasty and well made and we stopped here on a few occasions for afternoon beverages. The food was meh. Hard to screw up guac and chips and yet the pico de Gallo was less than fresh. Great place to watch the game or listen to music and people watch though. I would just recommend eat8ng somewhere else.

Good food and huge portions but probably not authentic Mexican...prepared with tourists in mind. Paid $10.00 US for lunch with 2 beer. Not bad. Situated on the boardwalk next to ocean. Great views. Great staff.

We spend the afternoon at Day off beach bar, as always the service was great with cold beer and good food. Today we had guacamole and chips as an afternoon snack. Jorge our server made the guacamole at table side, very impressive, I have a video but TA does not allow uploading.

We stopped here twice on our recent two-week vacation. Great location on the Malecon. Such terrific and friendly staff, great drink selection for those who like to be adventurous and best of all, great music videos! Loved this place so much, I bought one of their t-shirts as a souvenir! Make this a stop on your next visit to the Malecon!

I stop here several times whenever I'm in Puerto Vallarta. The location is unbeatable. I love sitting here and watching the locals and tourists as they walk by. It's open very late so it's a great place to have a nightcap. Friendly and attentive staff. They feel like family as a number if them have worked there for several years.

I'm writing this review at the table. Never before have I done this. The service was A1++++. We only ordered some soft drinks and Natchos but it made no difference, as we were treated with the utmost respect and kindness. Jorge was our table manager and he was the perfect host. This place has a great vibe overlooking the bay, watching the world go by.
The menu is vast and even our Nachos and shrimp was lovingly prepared at our table.
Don't hesitate... Visit!!

I’ve lived 10 months a year in Puerto Vallarta for 12 years. To walk the malecón every morning I’m forced to pass by the Day Off Beach Bar. For whatever reason, the bar interrupts the otherwise quiet ambience of the morning and the beach, as only some people can do, with a scandalously loud distorted sound system to some unknown purpose. It belongs in a tawdry part of an inner city far from a tropical beach.

We visited this beach bar during our trip along the Malecon to the Pier. Alfresco dinning we could not resist it, great music, great beer and good food. The ice cream was delicious. A total Mexican night out. At a very reasonable price.

I walked by this bar our first night and saw the videos and drinks and thought one night well sit here and enjoy the eviorment... today we decided to grab a drink and wings and cool down for the evening... drink was great and so were the wings.... when it came time to pay they brought us a check with the total circled HUGE and under the total was a tip already added and it made it appear to be like they were trying to hide it... then we gave them the money like ok well tip is covered and they come back with our change.. and here is what made me even more upset first you try to hide it to get another tip from us and then you short change us... I was furious and my husband didn't find it to be big enough of a Deal to say something to the guy in charge who seemed to avoid is the rest of the time we sat tjere... so YES the drinks were good as well as the eviorment but watch your money their sneaky... I'll never go back and I'll make sure to go home and tell people my experience... thanks

You want to crash and relax and people watch then this the place. Sit inside and watch fantastic music videos. Forget food this is a drinking place and one of the very few with draft beer if that's your scene. Service is fast and friendly. Cool spot.
