“Great place and value to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

This is the second year in a row that we have visited Puerto Vallarta. We had a great meal last year at Mama Rosa's so we thought we'd try it again. It was just as great this year. We sat in the open air porch like dinning room and watched the sun go down and the food was just as outstanding as the sunset. Several types of entres to choose from and the presentation of each meal was something to really admire.

We also had the chance to eat in the new downtown restaurant for lunch two days later and had another great meal. The view is no where near as good but the food was just as good as the hillside restuarant.

Hope to go back again some day.

“Mama Rosa - A Gem in Puerto Vallarta !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

In 2013 we found Mama Rosa's up a narrow street with lovely views. Wonderful food - great service - we returned again last week on our annual visit!

Don't miss this hidden gem. It is not noisy or crowded and the service is excellent. Great wine list too.

Mama Rosa's just opened another location near the boardwalk in PV....have not been to that location yet :)

“Oh Mama you are so good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

My wife and I visited Mama Rosa on Basillo Badillo for dinner while on our yearly vacation to PV this year. The service was excellent as well as the food. Had a very nice table outside.
