“Been going here for 10years”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Ate here for lunch the other day and just as good as ever. We love the 2nd floor location at the corner of the busy street to watch the traffic.

I had the mixto quesadilla (mushroom, beef, shrimp), my sister had the seafood salad (very fresh), and our friend had the seafood casserole (excellent).

They still serve you a free shot after your meal. Nice touch.

“favorite”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

This is one of our favorite places to eat. The shrimp is excellant and
the price is right. The waiters are great, ring the bell on the way up.

“Excellent food and plenty of it”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

San Lucas is an excellent restaurant. It is open air but enclosed. The staff is extremely polite and helpful. If you get to eat at only one place in PV, this is an excellent choice.
The food was excellent, the service quick and the price was unbelievable. You can not go wrong here.
You can get a taxi to take you here or hop on the blue Centro bus.

“Worlds Best Shrimp Quesadillas”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Wow, we were pointed to this place by a old man in a bar we walked in to ask where a good restaurant would be found. he walked us down the street ant upstairs to the San Lucas restaurant. The Food was Fresh and amazing. I have never had better Mexican food anywhere in Mexico. The rooftop outdoor atmosphere was amazing. our waiter (as well as the owner) was very friendly, the salsa was wonderful and the shrimp quesadillas were so good I feel I will never enjoy other Mexican food again. This is a must Eat if you are in Puerto Vallarta, old town.

“great meals and service”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Don't miss a trip to San Lucas restaurant your next time in PV. My husband and I eat there frequently and have not had a bad meal. It's a quaint, family owned restaurant streetside with terrific fish and a complimentary after dinner drink. Great waitstaff too. It's a touch of old mexico very different from so many of the newer, modern restaurants that have become very touristy.
