Always go to Melissa's while in PV. The food is always great. Had the shrimp and friends had the special Mai Mai fish. The family atmosphere is wonderful.

Best Mahi is Vallarta, family run business. Dad is the chef, mom runs the front and the kids and nephews are the very caring and attentive wait staff. Food quality very tasty and great.

Melissa's is our favourite local restaurant. It's family run and just a great place to be. All the food we have tried has been wonderful - but our favourite is the whole red snapper. Very good value, whole red snapper dinner for just 190 pesos (very large red snapper) or 160 pesos for a smaller but still large one. Not a lot of wine selection, but the house wine is enjoyable. We could not visit PV and not go to Melissa's. You find it by walking up two blocks from the Malecon - on the street by Banorte. It's on the left as you go up the street. Don't blink or you will miss it.

We have been coming to Puerta Vallarta for a long time and never heard of this great restaurant. When we came in the place was almost empty, so i wondered why. But it was groundless. The Mahi was wonderful, fresh and prepared to order. The shrimp cerviche was perfectly prepared. I definitely wii come back.
