Description: The Blue Shrimp Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta is the best seafood restaurant in the area, long time established. Situated off Olas Altas Beach, on the ocean with spectacular daily view of the sunset, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant is a fun atmosphere with occasional live entertainment, under a large palapa roof and ‘boat-deck’ feel. Open for lunch and dinner, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant serves mouth-watering seafood and shrimp concoctions that you cannot find anywhere else! The restaurant is a great place to bring the family, celebrate a birthday, romantic dinner, or special event. Come sit down with us, right at the end of the Malecon and feel the breeze of the Banderas Bay, it’s Shrimply The Best!

“Excellent Shrimp on the Beach”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Good food and atmosphere. Order shrimp by the kilo prepared in any number of different ways. Guacamole prepared table side is the best in PV. Nice setting on the beach.

“Very Disappointing”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Although the restaurant was not crowded, we received poor service. It took a long time for the waiter to take our order and bring us napkins after we had to request them. The food was mediocre at best. At the end of the meal, we were not offered coffee or a dessert menu. When my husband and I got up to dance, they cleared the table and took my purse! The waiter hadn't brought us our bill for the meal! Next, the waiter wanted to know how much tip to write on our ticket and even suggested the amount. There are much nicer restaurants in PV with great service ... don't waste your time at Blue Shrimp!

“Very good.”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

Excellent margaritas, perhaps the best we've had here. Fantastic, fantastic Peruvian Ceviche. Spicy and strong lime flavor. Very fresh. Can't recommend it enough. The Al Pastor Shrimp Tacos were very good if the shrimp was a little buried under the sweet/spicy sauce heavy with pineapple. The Spicy/Garlicy non-fried Calamari is also highly recommended.

Fantastic service. Right on the water with an excellent view of the ocean. We had excellent music from a live band while we were there.

“PV at its finest”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

Delicious supper, exemplary service, ocean front & live melodic music. Does life get better than this? Will be back before the week's out. Appreciated how owner, Martin, is truly a hands on leader: frontline checking in on guests, waiting tables. Congrats on creating a fabulous dining experience. Will try your new restaurant as well, "Si Señor"
