“Like home cooking.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We found this little restaurant off the Malecon on Corona st. We had heard good things about it but when we arrived we were the only people there. A little apprehensive, we entered and decided to try it.

That was a great decision. The food was great. It's a small restaurant, with max of 26-28 people but its a must on your restaurant list. Eduardo and Jaqueline who served us were very friendly and efficient.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention, the prices are also excellent. Our rating on quality vs. price is excellent. You should try.

“Best place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

We were most impressed with the quality of the ingredients as well as the actual cooking and presentation. The lasagna and caesar salad highly recommended. Freshest romaine I've encountered in a restaurant.

“great spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Picked up coupons from cupocity to try a new restaurant during our 6 months in PV. Just a block and a half off the malecon in downtown PV, we sat overlooking the sights of Corona St ( very romantic even for an old couple ) !! We got 2 appetizers ( bruschetta and tapinade )... both were outstanding . We enjoyed chicken parmesan ( noodles were fresh, the chicken slightly well done but very flavorful ) Enjoyed house white wine,......all told a very good dining experience,...we shall be back !!!!

“A Lovely Little Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

My husband and I had a very nice meal at this little niche in downtown Puerto Vallarta. The food was very good, the restaurant is quaint and charming, prices are good and the music was in the background rather than blaring as in so many Mexican restaurants.

“Convenient to the Malecon in Centro and not hum drum food at all.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

We had an excellent caprese salad to share while munching on the crostini with the olive tapenade that accompanies each meal. The limonadas were tart and very good. Both had the mahi mahi with shrimp on a bed of very creamy risotto and really enjoyed it. Some vegetables would have been a nice accompaniment though. The restaurant runs a video scroll of its dishes which is very well done and consistent with the presentation of the two things we ordered. The owner brought a second basket of crostini when he saw that we were out, a nice touch as we were on a heavily discounted Cupo City coupon. He also served us a half of a shot glass after dinner drink of kahlua and cream. Not much in the glass but an excellent touch. We will go back again if we can find the time. It's not inexpensive but the quality is very high. It earns its rating among the top 10% of restaurants on the bay in the fine dining category. No view but no charge for that either.
