“The Best Red Snapper”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Just left Rio Grande, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and again had one of the best seafood meals. Great margarittas and Charbroiled Whole Red Snapper. Try the appetizer with the shrimp & avocado, two can share one. Very friendly attentative staff. We will definately be back.. give it a try.

“Once they got us in, they couldn't wait to get us out!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

I had fish tostadas and a side of beans with tortillas...the fish "marinated in lemon juice" tasted a bit like tuna out of a can with lemon drizzled on top. My friends had seafood casserole and quesedillas platter...neither were very impressed, and it seemed unusually expensive for the dishes (they paid 120-150 pesos each, I think).

They seemed happy to have us come in, and as soon as we sat down we felt a little rushed to order and get out. I won't be back.

“Great Sea Food”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We love this restaurant and the service is great! The Red Snapper is fresh and cooked to perfection. There is a section of the restaurant that is air conditioned.

“Loved the Fried Baby Red Snapper!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We just ate here for the first time tonight and we both had the fried baby Red Snapper, and it was fantastic! We also put the fried garlic in oil, that they recommended, on the fish and it brought out the flavor even more. We will be back for sure, because they said their wooden grilled Red Snapper or Sea Bass is even better. We have a new favorite restaurant in Puerto Vallarta!!
