We once again returned to Mama Rosas on our trip to PVR this year. We find that the three course meal they offer is an excellent value. Their food is also very delicious. We recommend a reservation as the restaurant is not that large. We have always eaten at the one on the Malecon and this year discovered that they also have a location in Old Town.

We were hungry and it was EARLY. It was only a little after 5:00 pm and we wandered into Mama Rosa. We had spotted the restaurant the day before and decided we should try it. The place wasn't really ready yet but the staff immediately got a table ready. They brought us our drinks and some appetizers to tide us until the kitchen got rolling. We started with shrimp bisque (recommended). I had the filet and my wife had the steak. The food was delicious, the service excellent and attentive. Bruce even wandered over to tell us what a good choice we had made.

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.

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 :)

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.
