It's not just the restaurant, but the whole beach scene. The place is immaculate and the people welcoming and want to make sure you have a pleasant time. Chairs are comfortable and the beach is clean, white and gorgeous -- not that the restaurant/club takes credit for that! Wonderul for kids because not rocky and waves are gentle.

The beach is clean, and the Banderas Bay view from this place is beautiful! Waiters are attentive and there are small playgrounds for children. The atmosphere is friendly and even to go with family with kids. The only detail was that when the food bill arrived. Prices did not match those seen in the menu. And the waiter justify saying...

You MUST get the shrimp cocktail. So delicious and so many shrimp that I couldn't eat them all! I had the poached pear and goat cheese salad one day and it was excellent. Wished I could have stayed to try more of their dishes.

A long time favorite Beach Club with excellent service, food and drinks! Simply a great way to spend the day and we usually go several times during our visits to PV. Its our Go-To and we are never disappointed. Located in Nueva Vallarta, we generally take a cab from the Marina for some beach time. The ocean is beautiful and... More

We spent 3 evenings there over the course of a week. Each experience was different, but the food was consistently good and fairly reasonable.

This is one of the very few bars between Bucerias and the marina in PV. My wife and I walked the entire beach and man were we happy to finally reach Etc bar and grill on the way back. The beach walk gets very hot and tough on the feet in the afternoon. Etc bar was our mirage in the... More

Discovered ETC Beach Club a few years ago for a late lunch and loved it. The mussels with a buttery orange chili sauce was so rich and delicious and the ceviche was good too. Walked all the way down there from Bucerias this Jan. only to find the driest bceviche, rubbery over-cooked octopus, and a bland over-cooked mahi mahi steak... More

Stopped in for lunch a few times in the past month and enjoyed each visit. Seating available on the covered deck or at tables in the sand. The deep fried bacon wrapped large shrimp are delicious and served with a garden salad. The shrimp fajitas, and chicken fajitas are very good. The fish is usually bass and prepared a couple... More
