“Gabys Restaurant Bar”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

I went back to Puerto Vallarta, and back to Gabys, this time with 5 other people. We were greeted by Julio and his mother, and were all delighted with the service, the prices, and especially the food. Gaby's Chile Nogada can't be beat -- try it; you'll love it!

“Fabulous mexican food and service”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

A group of 6 women went to Gaby's tonight for dinner. The restaurant was clean and brightly decorated. Our server. Carlos very nice and even gave us history of the restaurant. I ordered Chicken Fajita's very fresh and delicious. Reasonably priced. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals. Portions are large!!!

“Our Review is long overdue”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

My wife & I have eaten at this restaurant twice in early afternoon. The menu we were told is the same as the evenng. The first time was February 2011 and the second time is April 2013. We were impressed our first itime in and our impression was confirmed on our subsequent visit. I had a filet of dorado for second time around served with mixed vegetables and rice. Go with what you know they do good. The second time round they changed the seasoning and it was like visiting for the first time. We both had lemonade drink and we asked for tartness and they gave us what we wanted to quench our thirst. My wife went for breaded shrimp and she got a plateful...so many I had help her finish. The shrimp were delicious. Not greasy. Overall both meals have been a pleasure. We had a nice view of the street and we could see people walking the street and swifts flying around building nests for breeding season.

“Special food, strange service”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We really liked our food here. There is just one thing....the person we thought was our waiter never came back after acting like he was our waiter, and he waited on everyone else, especially the large group that came in.

We began to wonder who our waiter was, maybe we had the wrong guy! But nobody answered yes when we asked. Every time I thought he would be over in a minute...he wasn't. We had to order another drink, our entree, and more water....from any warm body that got near our table. It was strange!

The food is sooo stupid delicious, we will definitely go back in spite of the service, and hope the service is better next time. I had the Mahi Mahi with shrimp, spinach, white wine and mushrooms in a Mornay Sauce for $165 pesos. Need I say more?

Husband had the Shrimp Au Gratin with Bechamel sauce for $135 pesos. This is actually a Burrito and it was sooo good. I was planning on ordering it if we got back there, but we never did.

This is a charming place as others have noted. Check out the photos of the food, the movies, and the view from the street.
