Swayed by the promise of free guacamole ( a waiter had given us a coupon during the afternoon when we were checking out the menu) and having stormed out of Hacienda Aleman in a huff ( see separate review of that unpleasant experience), we nabbed a nice table along the street and at a decent distance from the music. The guacamole-- made table side- was great-- spicy as requested-- and served with an enormous dish of chips. The star of the show, however, was the beef mocajete, bubbly and filled with loads of tender beef, nopale, panela cheese, green onions and an entire stuffed poblano pepper. It was more than enough for the two of us. Service was exceedingly friendly and attentive and the crowd of diners appeared just as happy with the restaurant as we were.

We were wandering around the Romantic Zone in PV and stumbled on a real Gem. The Mexican style food was great and the service better. The waiters were having fun. They mixed up a fresh Salsa right at our table. It had grilled tomatoes, onions, etc and was excellent. It had some bite to it. We had a Lava bowl filled with Shrimp, beef, chicken, vegi's and a Chilli Releno. Stayed warm until we were done. Enough for two.Then the three piece Guitar band started to play. These guys were good! We listened for a couple hours. Victor came over and talked about their music and they played most anything we asked. Remember to take extra Pesos to reward these guys. We have actually stopped it for a nightcap just to listen to these guys play.

This was a recommendation from a regular visitor to PV that we met at the resort. The food was excellent and different than the usual. You must try the mixed grill that comes in volcanic stone dishes that includes delicious meats and the best grilled poblano peppers we're ever had. The margaritas come in humongus glass and will not need a refill ! The prices were less than what they charge along the malecon and other seashore places. A great atmosphere and very friendly staff.

No complaints! The margaritas were great (and big!) plus the food was excellent. Will definitely return during our next trip to Puerto Vallarta

Came here for guacamole and a margarita, but ended up also ordering fish tacos. Guac was very good, pomegranate margarita was clear and refreshing, fish tacos were so-so. Large servings and fairly priced. It was hot as heck and the waiter, without asking, brought over a fan and pointed it at us. That was very kind. I am giving it 3 stars because I wasn't overwhelmed in either direction by the food, but it was pleasant enough. I'd probably go back.
