These are the restaurants that i love - family owned and run. Great food, great prices. I can't remember the name..but the stuffed jalapeno taco was amazing.

We came here as part of a food tour and sampled one of the tacos, it was so good that we went back later the same day for dinner to have another and try the rest of the tacos! Seriously some of the best tacos...in Mexico. The smoked marlin and jalapeno tacos were SUPER good! We also had the red snapper special and it was very good. We will come back to this place ever time we visit Puerto Vallarta. Also the prices are amazing especially for how good the food is.More

Off the beaten track but a cute little place with a small back patio to enjoy sitting in while you eat. Food is typical, nothing jumps out at me as outstanding but nothing was bad either. Prices seem on par with other stops in town

One of best places for coconut shrimp! The pepper appetizer a must to try. Our waiter has worked there for 15 years! Ask to eat in garden.

Craving a good camaron cocktail and after some research decided on this place as they also had Aquchile which I'd never had but wanted to try. I'll have to admit the cocktail was disappointing, the shrimp was great but the sauce was pretty much flavorless,...I didn't finish it. But, the Aquachile made up for it, it was soooo good. And my partner says she's never had better guacamole (and she LOVES guacamole) which isn't even on the menu. Our server was great as was everyone there, wish I could give 5 stars, maybe caught 'em on a bad cocktail day?More

Went there on a recommendation from a local and we were not disappointed. The food was fresh and incredible. My wife and I had the whole snapper made to order with garlic. My son had the octopus burrito and that was even better. Highly recommend.

Taco stand serving up delicious tacos (get the smoked marlin!), ceviche, and quesadillas. Delicious, fast, affordable... Highly recommend!

Had the stuffed Jalepeno taco. I believe stuffed with shrimp, mahi, & octopus. Great sauces also. Nice patio area in the back. Authentic and family owned and I believe all seafood oriented. Looking forward to returning.

Awful food. No one was here at dinner time on a Saturday night so that should have been my first clue. Plenty of tables and the service was fine. However this was my most disappointing meal for the whole week. The food was awful and...my “margarita” was the worst I have had in my life. It was just squirt soda with tequila. I couldn’t drink it.More

In the ten days we were in PVR, we ate here three times, twice for dinner and once for lunch. Absolutely wonderful seafood and ice cold beer. First dinner my bride had the lobster spaghetti and I had the seafood stuffed fish. Both were fantastic....Lunch was shrimp tacos, also fantastic. Second dinner was also great, I had a repeat of the seafood stuffed fish and my bride had seafood spaghetti. Great service and super friendly people.More

Just got ripped off 👎👎👎 I ordered 4 items and was charged 330, when it was suppose to be 230. Didn’t realize until later. Med seafood cocktail(130), 2 x tacos(30 E) one beer (35) and chips(unk). Seafood cocktail was bland. No acid and seasoning. The...Marlin and Fish taco was very good. I won’t be visiting again 👎👎👎More

Absolutely our favorite seafood restaurant in Puerto Vallarta! Incredibly fresh and delicious ceviche, smoked marlin, fried fish, fish machaca, aguachile, octopus, beautifully prepared and served by a highly professional and warm staff. Even their garlic bread is way above the norm. We ate there three...times in six days, and miss it already!More

One of my favorite places for fresh seafood tacos at very reasonable prices. I prefer the stand outside but have enjoyed the restaurant too.

I think 11am for lunch. The owner has a very large taco cart (with seating) outside the restaurant for those that don't want a full meal inside. One of the best seafood meals I had (at dinner but I think it's the same menu... More
