My wife and me had to Puerto Vallarta every year between june and august since 2008, since then we enjoy going to this restaurant in downtown at the "Malecon", last year and this one we notice less people at this place (we go friday or saturday), and the quality of the food is decaying not like this the prices that are rising, I don´t mind to pay for this kind of restaurant but the value for your money is not worthy in this past years, although the service of waiters and staff is really nice, hope for this to change because it was a really nice place by the sea to realx and eat.

They have outstanding molcajete. When we ate there some Aztec musicians and dancers showed up to provide entertainment. The views are beautiful from the balcony out to Banderas Bay.

We have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed it. The tables on the balconies overlooking the Malecon are incredible and in a refreshing breeze. The food and service have both been good when we visited previously. This time neither was even fair. The greeter on the street was fine and showed us to our favorite table. Then it ended. The waiter was surly and grouchy and the food was sub-par. The only good thing was the wonderful view of the Malecon filled with its plethora of colorful strolling visitors for holy week. They didn't give us the tequila tasting that has always so nicely top off the meal.
We might go back but not with the same anticipation and eagerness and we certainly couldn't recommend it as we have done previously.
The building was at one time a hotel and had a great bar on the ground floor called the Oceano with wide sills where one could sip a drink and watch the world stroll by. It was also the bar in which Elizabeth Taylor drank while waiting for Richard Burton when he was filming "Night of the Iguana". Up until now the balcony table of Le Destileria was a worthy substitute.

We went for a light snack. Ordered their chicken soup and it was terrible. Lots of chunks of chicken skin floating in the soup. Had to ask for utensils and never did get a napkin. Try the chicken soup at the Rosita Hotel

Every time I go to Puerto Vallarta, I go here for drinks and guacamole. I have never actually eaten a meal here, but the guacamole is always shockingly good, and the drinks are fantastic. The waiters are very friendly and attentive, and the view is awesone because you are overlooking the malecon and the ocean. No complaints here!
