Stumbled upon this restaurant after asking a local pub proprietor where to find a quality fish and chicken dinner. The gentlemen kept the restaurant open and served what was the best dinner of the trip. Big portions, fresh ingredients, and a real variety of dishes for all diets. When the bill arrived, I was surprised as the cost was half of what I expected. If you like to get off the main drag into the heart of the old town, definitely visit "Polo's" as you wind down your day.

in the romantic zone - not pretentious at all. Very good wine choices, excellent presentation and very good seafood choices. They do not take CC so be aware of that. If you go late, there is usually no line. If you like to eat early, then a reservation would be a good idea.

Our first dinner was here and, maybe, we expected more based on the reviews. We ordered and enjoyed the seafood platter for two which was reasonably priced and good. The wait staff was excellent. Her margarita was good. I would say, go for good seafood but don't expect to be blown away. A good value.

Friends who winter in PV suggested that we go to Polo, and we weren't disappointed.

It's a completely unassuming place (somewhere that we likely would not have gone without the recommendation), frankly in a neighborhood we wouldn't have been in. Not that it seemed unsafe at all, just that it's a bit out of the way, although a very easy walk to Centro or Zona Romantica.

The food was delicious. My wife and I both ordered shrimp dishes, and they were great. She had "Wiri," which she said was the best coconut shrimp she's ever had. I had "Kevin," which was equally delicious - although far less heart healthy given copious amounts of cheese and bacon. (Yeah, I know, sounds like a bit of a mess, but good!!) In both cases, we had four shrimp, but they were huge and quite enough. Served with rice and veggies. We were both stuffed - and definitely didn't need the very good guacamole we had as an appetizer to be full.

Atmoshere was nice - although it looks literally like a hole in the wall. A lot of buses on the street, so occasional noise (and smell) but really not that disruptive. Very attentive service. Doesn't accept credit cards, though; we just assumed they would, since they had a website. Silly us. Found a cash machine nearby.

We had our last supper in Puerto Vallarta at Polo's. The waiters were fun and helpful. We all tried the "special of the day" which was tuna. It was delicious and the presentation went far beyond what we expected. Even the guitar-playing singer was a cut above what we listened to other evenings! We did make a reservation, but the place wasn't full on a Sunday evening. Very enjoyable all round.
