The family is taking their vacation until October. Found out the hard way...showed up and doors were locked. Called the number on their website and owner told me they were closed for the off season until October.

When you arrive, you might think..."mmmm...this place...looks a little off the beaten path"...but when you go upstairs to the beautiful dining room you will be "WOW...worth it!" The owner who will greet you with a kiss and a hug is so lovely and if you are lucky like we were you will hear him sing. But that is just the... More

The meal that my husband and I had at this restaurant was absolutely fantastic from beginning to end. The service was top-notch and so was the food. The made-at-the-table Caesar salad was delicious, as was my husband's filet. But the best entree was my shrimp-stuffed pablano pepper. It was fantastic. To top off the experience, the price for the meal... More

We visited No Way Jose! during Restaurant Week and had a delightful time. Jose (the owner) greeted everyone and serenaded us with a local group of musicians. Jose and the musicians were really good! Right on key and very passionate. They were out of one of the Restaurant Week main courses and offered me filet mignon as a replacement. The... More

We dined there this past weekend and (as usual) the food and the service were wonderful. Jose, the owner, is a colorful character that takes a very personal interest in his patrons and making you feel welcome. I have enjoyed this restaurant on past trips and every time have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I would highly recommend!!

...and a friend brought us to shelter upstairs at No Way Jose. The corny name (sorry) lowered expectations, but the place and the staff were wonderful. The unusual weather could have dampened spirits, but the spirits were flowing, shoulder wraps were produced by the staff for chilly customers, and even the top dog joined the singing. It felt like a... More

No Way Jose! is a bit tricky to find, even though it is just a block off the beach and a block off the river. The facade and entrance are unassuming, but once you ascend the stairs to the rooftop seating area prepare for an amazing dinning experience. There are many reasons why this is one of the top rated... More

Jose himself came to speak with us. Nice touch. Food was awesome. Really glad we got to experience it. Didn't have the coffee so we will have to return for sure.

We were able to sample the menu offered for Restaurant week in Vallarta and were very impressed. The food was delicious. It was a fusion of styles. The ambiance is very pleasant and very tasteful.
