I think a lot of local expats eat here judging by the crowd and the level of overall management of the place. WRT the latter I notice that the little things in a resto correlate with the quality of experience. Anyway we had some friends who arrived for a day on a cruise ship so we walk them around old...

This was one of the two places our taxi driver from the airport strongly recommended. He deserved his larger than normal tip for both of his great recommendations. We tried to go back there for dinner last night, there was substantial line of people waiting to be seated so we went elsewhere. On the back to our hotel at 9:00... More

Good service, attentive staff, fresh seafood. They had fresh Dorado when we stopped and the chicken enchaladas were some of the best we have had. The sauce on the enchaladas could have been more robust but they were full of tender chicken and filling. The fish I had was grilled and prepared "Varacruz" with a good mix of onions,peppers,tomatoes and... More

The food is very good and they have air conditioning. We got quesadillas and tacos. Tacos come 3/order for about 85 pesos. All was tasty and service was good. The margaritas were also tasty.

Its hard to find places that seem authentic in over-developed Puerto Vallarta, but this place comes close. Good food, nice wait staff, a comfortable but interesting decor.

This is an extremely popular restaurant and the perfect location. Just walk down the street and take look inside at the crowd it's packed. Best for breakfast. Very popular in season and out!

Great staff who are friendly, efficient and the service is incredible. The twice baked potatoes keep me coming back here every year, as does the ambience and amazing service. I have been travelling to PV for 22 years now and the same gentleman has been the maitre de, standing out front for about the same amount of time. We joked... More
