Reviewed January 23, 2013

3 ladies joined me for cocktails and chat. We ended up staying for hours enjoying the wonderful food, each other's company and the best margaritas in PV. The seating is so comfortable you feel like you're in your own living room. The food so good you know you're not in mine! I could never cook that well. And the charming atmosphere only adds to the gracious service. I encourage you to try Uncommon Grounds in PV .

“Home away from home”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Coming across this restaurant was the most memorable part of our holiday in p.v. We ended up there two nights in a row. Both times we had amazing meals, the chicken was so juicy, the vegetables fresh and full of flavor, and the drinks were amazing! The atmosphere is really relaxed and laid back and the owners made us feel right at home. I love the location as it gave us a chance to take a nice stroll through town back to the beach after our meal. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone and look forward to visiting again on our next trip!!

“Tough night at U.C.”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Our group travelled to the restaurant due to the great reviews. Unfortunately, they had no shrimp that night. Since more than one-third of the menu is shrimp-based, we opted for drinks and the French Kiss cheese plate. Red sangria was good, the martini was well made and the dirty banana was good. There was no scotch. Lydia was accommodating with respect to fine tuning drinks to suit tastes. As others have reported, the place is zen like to the max. We'll give it another shot sometime.

“Best Vallarta has to offer”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We eat here so often, as it's consistently wonderful, the food, the drink (they make a special ice tea everyday that I love, while hubby is addicted to the Mojito), the atmosphere, so relaxing.

Owners are gringos, couple of funny sweet girls, they are very welcoming. Speaking of sweet...they have really tempting desserts, cakes, all kinds of amazing flavors and ingredients in cakes. They don't do meat, only shrimp and chicken, it's all organic and tastes it, so fresh so good.

We love the neighborhood and the walk there is wonderful, the people in the houses and shops all smile and say hola along the way. Allow time to wander around as it is a fascinating saafe neighborhood..

They are open at 4PM these days.

This will be a memory you won't forget and you will return to Uncommon Grounds, the purple building by the river Cuale..
