We were in Puerto Vallarta for a few days and selected to eat out each evening. The Malecon (Boardwalk) along the waterfront has numerous restaurants....all touting for business using various means. We were attracted to Mi Querencia because they had a Mariachi Band at the entrance ...so we stopped to listen and of course were approached by their tout. We... More

We were on vacation in Puerto Vallarta and decided to walk the Malecon and during our search for somewhere to have dinner, a very nice gentlemen on the boardwalk persuaded us to dine here and it was a good choice. Staff was attentive and very friendly, and even seated us by the window so we could have a view of... More

After walking up and down the boardwalk, my wife and I decided on Mi Querencia because of the nice location to watch the sunset and a free appetizer coupon... We were seated right away, had 2 delicious Margaritas and an order of Nachos. We both had steak for dinner, my wife had the flank and I had the filet mignon,... More

I'm giving this place 3 stars as an average: 5 for the amazing food....1 for the terrible service. Downside first: the guy on the boardwalk offered us a free dessert. We were recommended the restaurant by the cab driver so we were gonna visit anyway. The waiter's attitude was just terrible: as if anyone who sat in his section was... More

Good food, good drinks, good view of the beach! Stop here while shopping downtown. Try the shrimp molcajete, margaritas, guacamole. Enjoy the view of the beach and the vibe of the restaurant.

I am so sorry for giving anyone such a terrible mark, but hey... it was awful! I live in Puerto Vallarta for 3+ months every year, and I really do enjoy good Mexican food... But this year one of my favorites on the Malecon, Viejo Vallarta, disappeared, so we tried one after another to find that very special, authentic place... More

I had gone there in my last night in PV hoping to get Molcajete. This is their claim to fame. I was given a coupon for a free appetizer or dessert from one of their guys on the street. I should have listened to my intuition when they only had three tables with customers in this huge restaurant but I... More

We weren't that picky where we want for lunch while strolling along the beach. We stopped here for just a salad and a Ceviche. What can you do wrong to a caesar salad? Well, try over dressing and warm lettuce. I don't think they were going for warm. The pressing was just too much and too thick. The cracker they... More
