The Best Whole Red Snapper

We are coming to Vallarta again for the fifth time on Feb 1st to March 4. We have tried the whole red snapper at both Robertos and Ben Gusto. Both were very good. Wondering about some other places to try this dish. Thanks in advanceto all for all your suggestions.

We also loved Mariscos Polo, but did not have the snapper there. We did however have it at El Coleguita, and it was excellent and huge for 109 pesos.

When we are not in PV we have dreams about Polo's red snapper.

I highly recommend the snapper at Polo's, have had it several times and was never disappointed.

But I have to say the best I've had was at Tony's in Mismaloya. According to Tony Jr, the fish was still in the ocean at 4:30 that morning, that's pretty fresh.

I second the Rio Grande recommendation by deeMichigan. Great local place to have red snapper and other seafood dishes. Prices are reasonable too.

Amazed to see that Polo's is not in Vallarta Online's list of seafood restaurants, makes me doubt their other recommendations.

hubby and i had red snapper at los tres delfines for $100p. it includedall the fixings, salsa and chips, and a marg.

that being said we love mariscos polo---never had the snapper and el coleguito in the marina for great seafood.
