from the moment you step in you feel like family and are treated to Mexican classics produced with all local ingredients. Try the Caesar salad made to perfection at your table.

This is more of an experience than meal, and certainly worth the trip. The food is good, the setting is beautiful and the staff is outstanding. Very accomodating attention from the owner.

Food was wonderful and presentation was outstanding! Had chocolate ecstasy for... More

Came here with my family (13 people), and we had the most amazing dinner! From the second we walked in we were greeted and seated at a fabulous table on their beautiful deck. My grandma has been coming here for many years and even receives their news letter, but this was the first visit for the rest of the family.... More

No better way to open a restaurant for the season than being greeted by Julie and Jose the owners. Even though it was a very warm evening the place was sold out and that alone should tell you something. It is one of the premiere restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. My wife Faye and I had the specialty of the house,... More

I am a solo traveller from Australia, first time in Mexico. My guide book said I should try the Mexican national dish, chile con negado.

Went here as part of a group and was delighted especially when i went upstairs. there is a large open covered patio with great ambience. I ordered the Chile Nogada but was very disappointed since it was fairly bland, However others in my group had some fabulous dishes; try the chicken Xo-------. not pretty but delicious. Mussels were tough; instead... More

I love this place, the food is great and the drinks are even better. I was there in July 2016 and have been back 3 times since then but they have been closed.
