This was my husband & my third visit to Viejo Vallarta in the past 5 years! We never tire of the amazing views, welcoming breeze, and creative menu. Our host, Javier, and his wait staff could not have been more hospitable. Javier's English is perfect and he was extremely helpful in recommending city & country sights for us to see.
As the evening ended Javier asked whether we had read the negative reviews about his place, on Trip Advisir (we had not). He was forthright and accountable for the misery a "bad apple" employee had wreaked on his restaurant's otherwise sterling reputation. The result = all credit card transactions are done table side and there is a renewed viligence in monitoring staff.
I recommend giving this place a try. If in doubt, bring currency. I trust at ainimum the view win't disappoint. The faire is wonderfully traditional (chicken mole was outstanding) and staff surprisingly accessible!
