I walked past this place a number of times....it was always empty.....hand written signs near the door telling about good food and low prices.....kind of tacky......but my last night in Puerto Vallarta I decided to stop in for a drink on my way downtown. There was one other customer in there and he was a Canadian who lives in PV... More

Three of us ordered Oysters Rockefeller. They were so bad that we could not eat them. Another had a hamburger and he said it was just ok. The waiter said the margaritas were 2 for 1 then charged full price. And although we did not eat the oysters, they charged us for them and the manager refused to talk to... More

Within walking distance, an authentic restaurant with excellent service and wonderful food at reasonable prices. The marinated flank steak was worth the visit in itself!

We are Canadians now residing in Las Glorias, Los Caracoles is just a few blocks walk down the street from us. "Ya Ya" the manager was very gracious and inviting. When she said that she made the best margaritas, she wasn't kidding. The food is great, we had the combination shrimp plate (mui delicioso). We went back several times. Saludos,... More

We were looking for the sports bar to watch the Canuck's game, the bar was closed so we walked a couple more blocks and there was Los Caracoles. The hostess was wonderful and welcomed us in to her restaurant. They have two large TV's tuned to hockey games. I had the Mahi Mahi in a red sauce, excellent. We ate... More

This restaurant is located in the Hotel Zone, on the bus, handy and a good find! It is open air with a roof so there is no A/C but anything less than a totally blistering day is comfortable due to the sunken floor, high ceilings and overhead fans. I ate there three times in November 2013 each time to good... More

We stumbled across this place while walking by it many times. We finally decided to give it a try. We sat out on their back patio area, had a drink and listened to the music. It was very enjoyable. Then we split a burger and fries. It was one of the best burgers I've had in Puerto Vallarta. And I... More
