Great location in old town - upstairs on a main corner. Staff was friendly and helpful with the menu. Best guacamole of the week! Good seafood dishes - in particular the casserole if you like garlic!

We stopped in for lunch, very good. Started with the guacamole, then one of us had the chicken fajitas (all grilled chicken breast) and the other had the seafood burrito. Both were excellent. Appetizer, two entrees, one cervesa & one pop $300 pesos.

We have been to this restaurant several times in the last few years. Today was Valentines Day. Our family of 5 was looking for a good meal and instead we got a great meal. The guacamole was outstanding. We also had garlic shrimp and quesadilla. These were prepared just right. We were offered complimentary appetizers and an after dinner drink.... More

We had about 5 dinners here in a week. The restaurant is not very busy and you can easily get a sitting. It is located on top of one storey building clean and tidy. Good Mexican food. One minor problem is that it is located on a very busy intersection of Lazaro Cardenas and Insurgentes with a buses going almost... More

I love a place like this! Great for people watching. Superb street view from the upper floor and really honest, simple straight up food & served with a smile. Don't be surprised when you ask for your cheque and they offer you a free shot of tequila. I just keep coming back.

We ate here twice during our recent PV stay. My husband really enjoyed his broiled fish dinner. We shared a shrimp cocktail Mexican style. The service was very nice and we were given a free after dinner drink. Very reasonably priced menu. Nice portion sizes too!

San Lucas is a small, second-floor restaurant in the heart of Puerto Vallarta. It is family run with excellent food and service. Try the Quesadillas Mixta, three different flaky treats!

We came to San Lucas Restaurant after reading about it on TA, and we were so glad we did. We were there on a Friday afternoon around 3 and the place was pretty empty with the exception of a couple of tables. We were seated immediately by the owner and handed menus by the waiter. I ordered a guacamole and... More

This place has one of the best street views in PV. It is fun sitting up above while eating really good food and drinking very cold beers. The prices are low and the service is great.
