PV has a very diverse selection of foods from traditional to trendy. The portions are large and the service efficient. The food comes quickly, which is great for lunch. The margaritas are not to be missed.

Puerto Vallarta has been open for years and they still deliver consistently tasty food. I'm not sure how authentic it is--the food I was used to in the U.S. Southwest was spicier so I think they've "dumbed it down" for Connecticut gringos, but even if they have, the food is always fresh and tasty. The restaurant is almost always busy... More

The seating staff was pleasant, the drinks were fairly good but the food is very good. I ordered the red snapper with octopus, and shrimp which obviously is not a taco but very surprisingly good. I didn't expect such a dish at Mexican restaurant...who knew.

Always good Mexican food, fast and competent service every visit. Menu choices included beef tacos, a taco/ enchilada combo, and chicken quesadillas. The taco shells were crispy, beef was tasty, chopped lettuce and tomatoes fresh. The quesadillas were great and plentiful enough to make a "take-home" meal for the next day.

My wife is very picky when it comes to Mexican food, especially tacos and burritos. She loved both and I had a great combo reasonably priced. We were in CT for a wedding and we were happy to find a great authentic Mexican restaurant.

Puerto Vallarta is a well-run restaurant serving tasty (if sllghtly bland) Mexican food that is always dependably good. The service is warm and friendly, the place is usually packed with happy diners, and the food is invariably tasty and satisfying. If you are looking for absolutely authentic Tex-Mex like you've had in the Southwestern U.S. or northern Mexico, this will... More

We love this place! The margaritas and warm chips with homemade guacamole are just delicious, as are the fajitas. The atmosphere is lively, colorful and fun, service always good.

What fun! Not only was the food excellent, but also the staff made it very fun for my daughter's birthday celebration! We ate, she wore the Mexican hat, was serenaded, and enjoyed a yummy birthday dessert! One of our favorite spots in Middletown!
