Returned to this restaurant after 1 year. Service is excellent; food presentation is beautiful; staff is knowledgeable and very helpful; Everyone loved the food. The place is beautiful. Even the upstairs restrooms are attractive, modern and clean. A special praise for waiters Edi & Pablo for super-great service. The shrimp, salmon and tuna dinners were well prepared, with good presentation and great taste. Our chosen wine, Malbec, was reasonable priced and was very good. Beautiful restaurant. We will go there again.

Love this place! A must stop on every trip to PV! Food quality and presentation are fantastic, and atmosphere and customer service are also top notch! They have a nice little play area upstairs with supervision for the little ones if needed and for what you get, the prices are not bad. Always a highlight night when we take the family here!

My family and I stopped here our first night because it was easy for us and wow aren’t we happy we did. Ended up going back two more times in a span for three days. The food was so delicious and flavorful that you want to keep eating more. The prices were very reasonable but the staff.... The staff was incredible. Our waiter for all three times was Valdez “Tyzon ”. We may or may not have requested him the third time. He was so friendly and helpful with explaining all of the dishes and tequilas. We were tourist so naturally asked many questions. Tyzon would be very attentive to us and would always respond with a smile on his face. If he didn’t know something he’d go ask someone to make sure we got an answer. The birthday celebration they bring out is a reason to go itself. Truly though, the food and staff were exceptional. If I go back to PV, I’m definitely going back here for a dinner or two.
The ambience is very cool too. Inside looks very appealing for a nice dinner and then there’s the outdoor area which is a little more intimate. 10/10 all around

My husband and I were looking for a nice evening out and we found it. We have dined at La Palapa, El Dorado, the Iguana and many, many others in Vallarta. This place is now our favourite!

This is a beautiful restaurant, fantastic music and ambiance.

Service was outstanding and we were fortunate to have Edi, who made our evening so memorable.

The complimentary appetizer was delicious.
We then ordered the shrimp in cheese to start and we shared the steak, shrimp, sausage dinner for two,....delicious.

Dinner service was dining experience, with a fun fire show putting the final touches on our meal.

We ordered a Grand Marnier and two Spanish Coffees after dinner,....the preparation and intriquette fire presentation were incredible. Edi was amazing!

We were surprised with a lovely dessert and layer caramel corn.

We were enjoying the experience so much, we were there for four hours.

Prices were reasonable, very comparable with Malecon restaurants. Our bill was approx $210 Canadian and we had quite a bit to drink.

We will definitely return every trip back to beautiful Vallarta!
