“Hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

Heard from friends that this is the place the locals go so you know it is good. I had the half order of butter garlic shrimp and it came with rice and veggies. Also a basket of some of the best garlic bread. My husband had mahi mahi which was also very good. A little off the beaten path just off Allende but well worth it.

“Great Mom and Pop hideaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

Located a block off the bus route in downtown Vallarta, This is a wonderful little seafood place. We took a seat and were given our menu by the 4-5 year old daughter of the owners. I had the grilled Mahi Mahi and my wife had the butterfly shrimp. Both came on big platters and were fresh and delicious. I had four big, delicious Mahi Mahi fillets that were obviously caught that morning. If you like you like touristy places with their loud music fancy wall décor, and "atmosphere", then this is not the place for you. If you like excellent seafood prepared to order in a hole in the wall place, don't miss La Isla de Marin's.

“Isla De Marin”

What a great restaurant! Family run; you can see them cooking your meal. I wish I would have had more time I would have returned. Inexpensive, fresh & great. I highly recommend it!
