Description: Archie's Wok is widely recognized as Puerto Vallarta's best Asian fusion restaurant, featuring authentic, freshly prepared cuisine that spans the Pacific Rim from Thailand to the Philippines, to China and Vietnam. The staff offers traditional and contemporary dishes from these distinctive regions. They daily prepare a palette of complex sauces and condiments. Savor the aromas of spicy chili sambals, curry pastes, their famous hoisin sauce for the ribs and chiang mai sauce, too. The menu is truly a cuisine of medleys, which combines Pacific Island foods, Asian cooking techniques, Mexico's fresh ingredients and a host of other cultural and culinary influences. Seafood is caught daily in Banderas Bay and delivered fresh to the restaurant. Locally grown ingredients include an array of vegetables, herbs and spices, including kaffir lime, galangal, lemon grass, ginger, chilies, tamarind, and coconut milk. These are native to both Asia and the Mexican Coast. Archie's Wok has been family owned and operated since 1986. The history starts in 1977 when Archie Alpenia began working as the famous Hollywood Director John Huston's private chef at his personal retreat in Banderas Bay. From then on the restaurant continues to be run by his wife Cindy, daughter Kyoki and son Sergio. His legacy continues in this comfortable restaurant. Archie's Wok is just steps away from the Los Muertos Beach Pier and is a great location to meet friends and family. The restaurant is casually elegant and their team is committed to great service, excellent food and a comfortable setting. You can enjoy lunch and dinner in this sublime atmosphere with dining room and Asian style garden.

This place was recommended to us and I can see why. We had 4 people in our party, all of us ordered different things and all 4 were excellent. We sat "in the back" (technically outside) and the atmosphere was awesome. The drink were great and so was the service. If I travel back to Puerto Vallarta again I will be sure to eat here.

Everything ordered was spectacular and anything you might order would probably be a pleasant surprise. Nice atmosphere just off the beach. Clean, attractive, peaceful environment. We'll go again!

With so many friends recommending Archie's Wok we finally ventured in . . . And loved every delicious moment. We ordered several dishes to share, and then had to try even more. Can't recommend just one, it is a great pace to explore the many dishes.

We not only had the honor of eating at Archie's Wok but we also got to meet and talk with Cindy and her staff. We all shared assorted entrees each one fresh and delicious. This will definitely be on our PV restaurant list for years to come.
