Wasn't impressed....not at all as good as his original restaurant....was rushed thru dinner...one of the guests had his soup removed before he had even started on it....too bad, we used to frequent the other place with large family groups, but now, it just is the same as any other American style venue.....glad tho that he is successful......

This sounds like it is related to Mauricios near Home Depot. We have gone there every year for the last 10 years. The food is delicious and they always give free appetizer and dessert. I always get a bucket of beer on ice and they just charge for the opened ones. Many times we have had free shots of tequila... More

Mauricio's is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants and like to pay a visit to them on each trip. Value for your money and always a lot on the plate. Everyone who visits Vallarta should give them a try.

This is not your selection for a spotless clean, king crab or lobster type of dinner in an enclosed air conditioned locale. This is more like for the adventurous outsider looking to grasp the local tastes and spicy typical seafood the Mexican way. In a wide open building -really open- you can even hear and feel the traffic flowing through... More

Fun establishment and large portions of delicious food. I always order lobster and shrimp. (Seafood platter) The food is always fresh, delicious, and plentiful. Two people could actually share a platter, depending on their appetite. I will usually eat there at least twice during my vacation.

The place is alive with energy, and the staff is eager to ensure you are satisfied. We usually focus on their shrimp combinations but this time some of us also had BBQ with the shrimp. The food is cooked to perfection and is plentiful. We will go back next vacation!

Cabbie recommended this seafood restaurant in Puerto Vallarta. We were thrilled with the value and the quality of their selections. Although this place is away from rhe typical touristy locations it was well worth our effort to track it down. Service was very friendly and the pricing was very well priced. This is highly recommended.

We sat down and almost immediately were brought a cup of seafood broth and a marlin ceviche. Both delicious. Our meals were huge and very tasty. Jose Luis stopped by with a bottle of tequila several times. When the meal was done we were served fried banana--mm mm and a shot of baileys?? We were celebrating our friends birthday and... More
