Jamie ans crew were amazing. The food is some of the best we have had in Puerto Vallarta. We have gone to the higher end restaurants like LA Palapa or Cafe Kimberly but this is better. Real Mexican food, lightest sopes, most flavorful mole I...have ever had. Going back tomorrow.More

My husband loves mole, so after reading reviews of this spot we decided to go. We were the only ones there for dinner at that time; very small place. We were greeted warmly and given a sidewalk-fronting table. Jaimie (sp?) was wonderful, and the food...was amazing! I had three-mole chile relenos and my husband had three-mole sopas. I love guacomole and I think it was the best I've had, and the margaritas were also great. Can't wait for our next trip to PV to visit again.More

We stopped here for some great traditional Mexican food. The service was excellent. It was not a busy night. I had the enmoladas with tres moles. The mole verde is phenomenal and the shrimp enmolada was fantastic. The chicken enmolada, however, could have used more...seasoning. My dining partner had the enchiladas and they were good. For the mole lover--this place is great. The value is there and I would return.More

We love mole and took the recommendation from a local to visit here. So glad we did! Excellent mole and choices. DELICIOUS and nice location in the center of the Zona Romantica. Was sad to not see many patrons due to the decline of tourism...in Mexico but it was a special treat for us. Live music too added to the charm. We will be back!More

Fantastic. Authentic Mexican. Tres moles to die for. If you want a menu of 75 items, find a tourist trap elsewhere. When you’re ready to dine this is the spot.

I was very underwhelmed coming to this restaurant. This caught me off guard considering the great reviews and pictures. The service was mediocre at best. I didn’t get a “sample” of mole sauces to choose from. I ordered enchiladas with the dark mole. The chicken...was dry and unseasoned. There was no live music. We immediately went elsewhere after our departure for tacos to fill us up. Disappointed because I love mole and didn’t get the experience I had hoped for and it was my birthday.More
