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!

“A Great First Time Experience”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

We have often dined in the area but this was our first visit to The Blue Shrimp. It was fabulous! We had tableside guacamole, salad bar and then shared the shrimp wrapped in bacon, served on skewers in a papaya. Beautiful presentation. The food was excellent and the location right on the beach is exceptional. Music in the background was very enjoyable. We will go back!

“Worst Of My Experience I 15 Years”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

It is very simple. DO NOT DARKEN THE DOOR. There may be worse in Puerto Vallarta but I don't think you could find one. We have been going to PV for years and this is the worst I have ever experience. The salad bar look like you could get ill just getting too close. The service is a little less than sub par and the food is not worth finishing.
It is too bad that they take up beach space!

“The very best!!!!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We have gone to this amazing place 3 years in a row for our anniversary! We have never been disappointed!!! The atmosphere is romantic and private, the food is delicious (my husband loves the cheese and bacon wrapped shrimp) and the service is second to none!!! You get a great deal of food for a great price!
You will not want to skip this place on your next stop in PV!

“Huge Shrimp”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Beautiful setting with ocean side seating, good service and cold drinks. The jumbo shrimp were the biggest I have ever seen. I wish they had a shrimp sampler plate so I could have tried different kinds but the garlic shrimp were very good

“$60 Brunch for Two”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Beautiful setting, with tables on the beach or inside the restaurant. But food was very poor for the price. For example, an order of guacamole, altho made with a flourish at tableside, was mediocre and only enough to serve one person frugally. Four drinks, guac and chips, tortilla soup and quesadillas for $60 on the beach? Never again.
