Jorge's Hideaway Shrimp Shack started 7 years ago founded by Jorge Tovar, a famous man in Olas Altas and Puerto Vallarta's Romantic Zone. A family owned restaurant that keeps the personal touch. You must try the famous Pinapple Shrimp or a delicious lobster. If you want to meet a little bit of Mexico, Jorge's Hideaway is the perfect place, full of colors and Mexican paintings. This secret jewel is located on the top of Olas Altas in Puerto Vallarta.

Lovely family run business. Everyone is made to feel welcomed. We shared a Caesar salad and the Kahlua Shrimp. The shrimp were cooked perfectly.

Been wanting to try Jorge's for a couple of years and finally made it.. Made the short walk up the hill to a small slice of heaven serving Bacon Wrapped stuffed Shrimp with a Kahlua sauce that was incredible.. Wife had the Baja Shrimp which...was also fantastic.. What have we been missing out on??? We'll be back for sure..More

This was literally the best meal we’ve had in Puerto Vallarta. We had the Coconut Shrimp and the Tuna with Lemon Sauce. First of all everything was amazingly FRESH! The shrimp were huge and very delicious. The tuna rivals anything we have had in Hawaii....Mucho gracias, Jorge and staff! Magnifico!More

Loved the atmosphere at Jorge’s Hideaway Shrimp Shack!!!! Silver Ornaments hanging on the ceiling, brightly colored chairs and walls and Día de los Muertos - Frida art on the walls make the place unique. The shrimp dishes we ordered were delicious!

We hadn’t been here for a couple of years but were happy to return. The restaurant was half full so we opted to sit at one of the outside tables. We tried four different shrimp dinners and all were delicious. The star, however, was the...clam soup. It was outstanding!!! Service was excellent. Prices are reasonable. No credit cards. We will certainly return.More

Used to go to here to eat twice a week. I’ll not return anymore. It was like being in my own home until Jorge totally insulted my intelligence, more than once. Food used to be fantastic...NOT ANYMORE.

If it wasn’t for Jorge...two faced, lying, cheat and sleezbagging, I’d still go there for the rest of the staff and food. I founded the restaurant with my friend Ray, also from Canada. We funded it, and helped build it into a viable restaurant. Used...to be rated on TripAdvisor at #1 to the lowest of rating of about # 20. George has refused to pay back or honour his commitments. I strongly reject him! Please act accordingly!More

Jorges is a great little restaurant. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. This winter I ate there 3 times, and look forward to eating there again!

We have been here b4 & always had a good shrimp meal. Many choices of shrimp dishes. It is a little hidden away but worth finding. Jorge is always there & very friendly & happy to see you. Closed Mondays so save your walk up...the hill for another day.More
