“A hidden gem”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We love this place. My husband and I stopped in about 8 years ago when we were in town for a day on a cruise stopover. Recently, we retuned to PV with our family for a longer stay, and took them here remembering the good food, friendly service, and amazing view. We were not disappointed! Everything was as good quality as we remembered. You may be tempted to stop and eat at one of the many places on the Malecon, but this place gives you the most incredible view and great prices that you have to give it a try. It's on the 3rd floor, so you have to walk up a few flights of stairs, but once at the top you will be in a little piece of paradise. Their guacamole is amazing, and all of the food is yummy with large portions. I shared the shrimp fajitas with my Mom, and we were both completely full (for only 150 pesos).

“Awesome place to eat”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

I ate alot of guacamole in PV but this was my favorite. They have an authentic mexican menu. We all ordered something different and no one was dissapointed. Great view from the third floor. Staff was very accomodating and even brought us a fan because it was very hot the night we were there. Awesome place to eat.

“Viejo Vallarta is vonderful!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Out on the Malecon, Roberto suggested we try Viejo Vallarta and we are glad we did. Our waiter Panchito was attentive and the view was fantastic. As it was Sunday and everyone was out to be seen, we had the best seats in the house overlooking the Malecon. I had the mole and my husband had the fish fajitas. Both meals were delicious.
