Perfect spot to enjoy seafood a quick cab ride away from the resort strip in Nuevo Vallarta. Every dish we ordered was flavorful and the octopus was perfectly cooked. You can’t go wrong with the seafood casserole, very tasty!

We make a point to eat here every time we stay in Nuevo Vallarta. The staff is friendly and all their food is delicious. We are particularly fond of the molcajete. It's huge and easily feeds 2 people.

We walk out from Vidanta to support local businesses such as Barracuda. Excellent value drinks and their local caught fish and seafood is excellent....especially their Coconut Shrimp!
