“terrific ceviche”
4 of 5 bubbles Review of Ruta Pacifico Cevicheria - CLOSED

Ruta Pacifico Cevicheria
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Lunch
Description: Just went to the opening..many kinds of ceviches 3 on the permanent menu and others change with seasons...you choose the type of fish you want and then the way you want the ceviche prepared. Primarily a take out place but you can order there as they have some outdoor tables. priced by the type of fish (they do have vegetarian) and by whether you want 1/2 order, 1 orders or more. They also have a few empanadas. each full order comes with tiny cones and you can take them home, fill them with the ceviche and serve to guests...not only beautiful but delicious. Opening night they had pomegranate, mango, banana and other ceviches...all delicious

“terrific ceviche”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Delicious and fresh ceviche. Very small and prepared to order. When we were there, they were getting local fisherman delivering octopus which was awesome to see. Family owned business for 30 years....definitely recommended.

“Magnificent Ceviche!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2011

Ruta Pacifico is a very nice concept for take-away ceviche. The ingredients are fresh and the ceviche is made to order. You choose the meat (tuna, shrimp, fish of the day, etc), and the type of ceviche (they have 8 different styles—traditional, Mexican, oriental, etc.), and you can add or remove ingredients and make it as spicy as you like.

The place is clean and their focus is for take-away, however, they have tables outside where you can seat to eat and have a beer at the shadows of an immense tree.

This is really the best place for ceviche in Vallarta!

“A New Star in Puerto Vallarta - Fab Take Out Cerviche”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2011

This is primarily a restaurant intended for take-out although there are a few tables and chairs outside under a big beautiful tree. I have been following the chef that planned the menu for this place and he is truly a star who comes up with unusual, beautiful and tasty combinations.

They serve Cerviche in approximately eight different styles. First you choose the base (vegetarian, tuna, shrimp, etc). then you choose the style you want. There are 3 permanent styles (traditional which is jicaima, onions, green chilies, cilantro, and mixed citrus juices...and two others). Five other options are give according to the seasonal ingredients. The night I was there they offered mango, coconut, banana, pomegranate and other kinds of Cerviche. They also offered 3 types of empanadas--all with a seafood base.

Prices are very reasonable. They offer 8 cones with each full take out order (they have 1/2 orders also) so that you take home the Cerviche, fill the cone with it and serve...so cute and beautiful (not to mention impressisve). You can buy a board with holes in it and use it to put the little cones in for serving if you want to use this often.

Beware when you are looking for this place as there are two Av. Los Tules...take the road that goes past Costco going away from the water...pass Costco and after you cross the main street (the first one after Costco) watch for the restaurant on the left (I did not think the street was called Av Los Tules but perhaps it is). It is small and tucked away on your left by the bank (behind the bank). There is parking.

I have never had better Cerviche anywhere. (I usually don't even like Cerviche but this changed my mind)
