If you’re thinking about stopping by, just do it. It’s the perfect place to grab a full dinner or a quick drink. The staff is wonderful, the food and drinks are excellent. Cannot recommend enough and I’m excited to return soon!

Had the pleasure of bing in invited to a private party at the barrio bistro yesterday it was absolutely fabulous. The restaurant was decorated with lots of fresh flowers and the 60 invited guess were delighted at the lovely tables looking like being a part...of a a lunch in the country. The service was excellent and the meal divine. From the first bite of tune ceviche to the last bite of raicia sherbet the party flowed with delicious creations by Meno the chef and owner. I highly recommend the restaurant as much for two as for a large group as we were yesterday delighted with our 4 hour celebratory meal. The highest of praise goes to Memo’s servers running to please us guests always smiling. Excellent experience!More

We met friends here for dinner based on their recommendation. Very cute atmosphere and setting. We were quickly greeted by Abby, our amazing, knowledgeable and friendly server. She took us through the extensive drink menu and made great suggestions. Next Chef Memo greeted our table...and went over the night’s menu. We chose a pumpkin soup starter, short rib and ribeye steak with bone marrow. All were excellent. At dinners end, Chef Memo came around to be sure we were pleased with our meal and to thank us each for dining in his restaurant. Such a welcoming and enjoyable experience. We will absolutely be back.More

Unfortunately, due to Covid we’ve not been to BB for some time. The other night our neighbors asked if we’d like to go & we jumped on the opportunity. Over the years BB has enlarged their dining area & the food is as memorable as...it was in the beginning. Memo ALWAYS makes the time to address each table personally & explain all his new & old dishes—his staff is amazing & a very relaxed atmosphere. My wife & I really love the innovations that go on behind the scenes with the most interesting & delicious ingredients. PS La Lula Bar Raicilla is one of the best in the city.

Another exceptional meal at Barrio Bistro. As we do every year when in Puerto Vallarta, we make a visit to BB a must. Only this time, I was blown away even more than before with the mushroom appetizer. Do not miss it! The beef cheek...entree was very good, as were the fish that my daughter ordered and the shirt rib that my wife ate. Service from Abby was a perfect complement to a great eveningMore

We had the most enjoyable experience at Barrio Bistro . Our server Carolina was so helpful and spoke English very well . She explained all the mixed cocktails that we could try from the distillery connected to the restaurant called La Lulu . They were...fabulous. We ordered the shrimp and rice dish , which was superb and the Rib eye which was also very good . The food is beautifully presented. Dessert was just as good. The chef came over and we had a lovely conversation about the area . Live music was playing in a beautiful garden setting . I could have stayed all evening. Carolina called us a cab which was much appreciated. I will definitely visit again . Service was wonderful, I did not feel rushed at all , every one in the restaurant is so friendly.More

Abby and Daniel tag teamed our table and we’re very attentive. Abby informed us that sharing plates was okay because the portions were large. We had stuffed chicken with pineapple which was delicious. The salad with berries and blue cheese was very tasty. Abby was...very informative and told us about live music on Wednesday evenings. We made a reservation to come back then. Thanks for an enjoyable evening, Abby.More

We were last here three years ago, and our experience this time was as delightful as we remembered. Charming setting, huge portions, the dishes are not just tasty but works of art. Our advice though: only order one appetizer so you will have room for...your entree, and maybe even dessert. Abby was our main server and she was a joy. All staff were friendly and how nice to get a table visit from the owner. A gourmet meal at a reasonable price. We will come back on our next visit to PV.More

This place is a must if you are in PV. It is so much more than just dinner, but art and a experience. At the same time, it is non pretentious, with staff that were attentive but not hovering. Our wait person was delightful. Food...was fresh, creative and generous portions. The chef came out and talked to us- and others- about the details of the food. Wonderful ambience and surroundings.More
