“Where were you?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

We have eaten out most nights in PV for 25 years. Only this out last week of our timeshare did we discover this gem that pays for you ride out (100 pesos) west of the old town along the river which gurgles between tables set up on either bank completely hidden from the road. Its been there 14 years but wow! Clean, lantern lit, multi-levels of tables down to the river, family built and staffed to serve lots of the typical Mexican fare with at least 7 variations of giant, tender prawns including tequila, bacon and pineapple (our winner!), mango, etc.Great big appetizers and bigger margaritas (banana won!) Prices average for this type of all Mexican menu followed by bananas flame better than our previous favorite from Le Bistro and ended with a Mexican Coffee show that had us laughing our sides off and admiring the skill..oops, almost forgot the Mexican poppers, one by one around the table, the standard end to a fun, funny and delicious night with a cab called ready and waiting. Dinners this week at our old favorites Olla, Tapas B, Red Cabbage, Vitea, Leche, and Elizabeth at Madison, El Arrayan and the broasted chicken from Soriano's were all high value meals with lots of different tastes, but CP topped them as the best all around. We should have known when we waded into our giant appetizers--seafood soup to die for, shrimp stuffed in avocado and a greattt octopus salad. A great vacation in Puerto Vallarta, the best restaurant city in Mexico! We will have to return especially for the Cuale Paradise total night to remember.

“Tables right next to the river, under the trees, excellent food, friendly personal service...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

This place is magical. During the day you can watch the river run with butterflies flitting around, egrets feeding in the reeds. At night the gentle lighting in the trees make it a wonderfully romantic setting. The food is excellent, and the banana margaritas are to die for. It's family owned, so you get very friendly, personal service. Unique!
