About
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.

Eat here. Enough said. OK, maybe not. It's a great walk from the south end of the malecon to this hideaway. It's a very small restaurant, but there are tables outside. Having said that, I would highly recommend eating indoors. It's Mexican-eclectic with a great...More

This restaurant had such a fun atmosphere. The servers were entertaining, and spoke great English. Jorge himself came out to the table and told funny stories and made sure that all was good. Complimentary drinks at the end of dinner. Loved it!

Love this place! Still dream of the pineapple shrimp. Food is artistically plated and when set in front of you, just makes your mouth water! Excellent margaritas too!
