“♥ *VERY INSPIRING* ♥”
Reviewed April 26, 2011

WoW!!*I could say words in another language in order to convey how many emotions resulted from their very tasty dinner.!!!* Sometimes we think “won´t be enough” especially when you love food, but portions really got the satisfaction from your belly. A very, very relaxed & sweet night that was spectacular, not perfect, which is what, makes it perfect. And not to forget!! Share an amazing night with AWESOME Friends (Thanks Eren M. & Ruben S. for being such magnificent friends. Thanks Marantina Gastro Lounge for being part of that moment.♥

“Great athmosphere, amazing food, amazing drinks, all at great prices.”
Reviewed March 14, 2011

Dinner at Marantina was one of the best experiences I had while visiting Puerto Vallarta. The menu covers an eclectic selection of international themed dishes, all with a hint of Mexican flavor. The drinks are also really good. Highly recommended.

“Simply outstanding”
Reviewed March 7, 2011

I don't think I've ever rated anything here before, but I can't recommend Marantina enough after having dinner there tonight. Chic, stylish and relaxed, very pleasant staff, and really, really good food. The spinach salad sounded like one of the less-interesting items, but it was delicious: wonderfully dressed along with paper-thin slices of apple and bits of what I think was pancetta cooked in a reduction sauce, and served in a long narrow dish. My red snapper was grilled and served on a melon base that had chunks that were bigger than a puree but smaller than "chopped." Cool, sweet and delicious. Guava creme brulee for dessert was a bit of a letdown after the prior dishes, but I prefer the original so I'm a bit prejudiced. I stopped to peruse the menu on the way out to see what I might have for dinner tomorrow . . .
