Our favorite restaurant in La Cruz area is Xocolatl. Each of our last three visits to Puerto Vallarta have included this restaurant. We come around 8 pm when the sun has passed over. The terrace overlooks all of Banderas Bay and so pleasant. The specials always include fresh fish. We have loved every meal here and look forward to next... More

I only wished it matched the taste. It does offer a nice view, however. The location is hard to find as it is up the hill and... More

We went with a LARGE group to Mexico in April. Xocolatl was a ton of fun. We had such a great dinner that we cancelled another reservation to go back a second time. We asked the waiter to just bring out food and they did a really good job. They brought out a ton of food and many different things.... More

What a fantastic place! Great view and amazing food and service. Love it when the bar gives you a free cocktail at the end of your meal! Would definitely go there again.

We live near this restaurant and often forget to stop in a for meal. The other night I decided to try it again as I wanted a hamburger and remembered they were tasty at this location. The waiter said they had some from Ahi and he was getting great reviews from the customers. I ordered it and it was DELICIOUS!

This restaurant is owned by man who also had a restaurant in downtown Puerto Vallarta. We visited it April of 2016 again and the food was good and great service. The view of the bay is very nice also. Their pricing is very reasonable. There is a bit of street noise, but not enough that I would not return. Bathrooms... More
