This was our first visit to this restaurant we never made it to their previous location. The pre dinner drinks were very good. We started our meal with Tuna Carpaccio which we really enjoyed and then we both had the catch of the day. The fish was delicious. We loved the sauce. The rice and vegetables were nice accompaniments. The... More

Just across the street from Joe Jacks. This "Polos" staff is outstanding, so on the mark - effecient. No slow service here. Fish was off the hook good. Just right! It's a bustling place, almost a surprise like experience. I rarely recommend - this is an exception. Just do it. It's that good. With one caveat!!! Pesos, no credit cards.

Went on spur of the moment with 3 others. My maui maui was cooked to perfection. The menu is extensive and it is GOOD ! These people have experience and have a restaurant in another part of town that I used to go to in 1999. It was great too. Good service. Nice lovely atmosphere. Terrific food. I'll go back... More

Wonderful food and service at reasonable prices. Coconut shrimp (Wiri) is delicious as well as the red snapper. Love their new location on Basilio Badillio.

Great customer service! Had my kids who are picky eaters, they were happy with food. They had a kids meal menu!!! We all had a good time and food was fresh and delicious. Strawberry Margarita was yummy!!! Try the deserts too!

We always visit Mariscos Polo's on our semiannual trips to Puerto Vallarta. Recently they have moved to Basilio Badillo, which is just around the corner from the hotel where we stay in the Col. Emiliano Zapata area. Very convenient, indeed. This is the place to go for fish. As another restaurant owner told me, "We tend to kill our meats... More

We found Polo many years ago and went there once each visit, except last year. We were surprised to hear that Mama Rosa's had closed which we also enjoyed, but please do hear that Polo moved to that location. Polo's chef understands how to creatively prepare all types of fish and seafood. We started with a bowl of tortilla soup... More

I used to go to Marsico Polo's at their old location. I was told by some folks that the shrimp bisque was a must have and they were absolutely right. This past November it was the best it's ever been. Awesome restaurant with great seafood dishes. I had the fish a la diabla which was very good (spicy dorado fish... More

We return here year after year during our PV holidays. Probably 2 or 3 times in a two week period. We think the food here is amazing. The friendly and attentive table service is top notch and the staff are really good at what they do. I know we should try other things on the menu but we continue to... More

The staff is attentive and well organized. The food selections show some creativity, but most dishes fit a common formula. Sauté vegetables, scoop of rice and your main dish. My fish was over done and over sauced.
