Location and contact

The Blue Shrimp Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta is the best seafood restaurant in the area, long time established. Situated off Olas Altas Beach, on the ocean with spectacular daily view of the sunset, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant is a fun atmosphere with occasional live entertainment, under a large palapa roof and ‘boat-deck’ feel. Open for lunch and dinner, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant serves mouth-watering seafood and shrimp concoctions that you cannot find anywhere else! The restaurant is a great place to bring the family, celebrate a birthday, romantic dinner, or special event. Come sit down with us, right at the end of the Malecon and feel the breeze of the Banderas Bay, it’s Shrimply The Best

There was a roach antennas and all in my seafood soup. They claimed it must have fallen from the roof as it was being redone that day but i dont buy it. Never again.

Great food and view on beach front tables or lounge chairs, the margaritas were delicious and the beach vendors have delicious fresh oysters

I admit that I normally start my trip to PV by going to our old favorite LaPalapa. After three meals there, I wandered over to The Blue Shrimp, and having forgot why I don't immediately think of this as a go to place in PV,...More

Had a wonderful dinner! Food was excellent, on the beach with a perfect view, and the service was top notch! We had the Coconut Shrimp and the Stuffed Shrimp. The shrimp were huge and both were awesome!

We first tried the Blue Shrimp on a previous visit to Puerto Vallarta three years ago. As it was such a good experience we returned in May 2019 while staying in nearby Bucerias. The staff were friendly and very attentive as on our previous visit...More

We had a fantastic lunch at The Blue Shrimp. Very efficient and friendly servers. Table-side guacamole was a huge hit. All the shrimp dishes are fantastic, but they have an extensive menu for all tastes.

I don't particularly remember a happy hour. Most places in Puerto Vallarta don't have a "happy hour" like in the US. They usually have 2 for 1's and mostly all day.
