The meal, atmosphere, and drinks were great. Our meals were cooked over a wood fired grill, my wife’s Spicy shrimp was great and my Carne Asada plate was awesome. The drinks were very good and the service was great. Ivan was a great waiter and...very attentive. He almost sold me on the Duck special but I can get duck at hone but not great carne asada, so I went with the asada plate.More

De Cantaro is my new favorite restaurant in PV! We visited for a week and ate at De Cantaro four times! The service was excellent and the food was great. The Caesar salad with grilled shrimp is perfect!

Our time in Puerto Vallarta was mainly spent eating and relaxing. And while we had good food, this place exceeded all our expectations. If you go, try the fish tacos. I loved that they use grilled fish and not fried. They tasted incredibly fresh and...very flavorful. We then had the Ribs because the tacos were an appetizer and the meat fell off the bones they were so tender. Needless to say we had to waddle out of here but it was well worth it. We will be back for sure.More

It wasn’t bad food, just average. We had a Mexican plate and 2 fish dishes. The steak on the Mexican plate was way over smoked and was unable to tell the cut. The fish dishes were underwhelming. At this price point there are much better...restaurants in Zona Romantica.More

I was craving a good cut of beef and De Cantaro for dinner was just what I needed. I was given a choice of sitting inside or outside. There was also live entertainment on the patio. I ordered the small ribeye medium rare with a...side of nopales / onions and ended with flan for desert. I know this is a low bar because everything I ordered is really hard to mess up. And of course they didn't, every bite was delicious. The star was there server Gume. He was polite, funny, and accommodating. He clearly and carefully answered all my questions. He even laughed at my jokes. Thank you Gume, ScottMore

We have visited PV a number of time and this was the first time we stopped here. The staff and the manager were very pleasant and helpful. Great Cadillac Margaritas and an outstanding bottle of wine recommended by the manager. We thought our meal was...excellent. Review menu on line as it’s varied from Mexican to steaks and ribs. Enjoyed the ambiance. Mainly in a courtyard but well protected from sun or weather. They also are a chocolatier making their own candies...excellent...perfect for dessert.More

Open-air restaurant with upscale service. Peaceful, relaxing ambiance, and amazing food at a reasonable price. Staff is very attentive, respectful, and friendly. Our waiter, Alex, was top-notch. Definitely plan to return again soon.
