Would not have expected to find such finesse so close to the beach in PV where many of the restaurants hire hawkers, offer bribes, or focus on gimmicks. This small new restaurant pays attention to details, from the presentation of food on plates to the quality of coffee (which supposedly comes from a local source). And the service was authentically friendly and efficient.
Oh, forgot to mention, the food was also great! I only went for lunch, but the burrito with mixed seafood was tasty. The whole prawns were perfect, and the octopus was also good (which is a challenge for many restaurants). Also enjoyed the apple pie, served warm with van.ice cream

When I was in Puerta Vallarta for three weeks, I ate there several times. The food was great everytime, the staff was very friendly and the presentation is a delight. I would recommend reservations as it is small and limited seating.

We stopped in without a reservation and got the last table. They were booked solid for the rest of the evening. We always order a bottle of wine and the short and very affordable list pleased us and we oped for a Malbec. We ordered surf and turf but asked the steak be grilled and a larger portion rather than shish-kabob style. We started with 2 salads - both tasty and generous before our mains. The hanger steak was very tender as was the bacon wrapped & stuffed jumbo shrimp with mango sauce. They brought us complimentary flans which was a nice treat. Overall a very good experience. Do make a reservation as this place is busy.

we decided to visit embarcadero on our christmas trip and we were NOT disappointed. from the service, food presentation, food quality, prices and the yumminess of it all---we will be back.
the owners made us feel welcome the minute we came in. they explained their menu and answered any questions.

hubby had the embarcadero combination which included octopus, shrimp, and mahimahi. i had the shrimp combo that included breaded shrimp, garlic, and diablo. i am not a fan of diablo so they gave me barbecue shrimp instead. both dishes included rice,vegetables cooked to perfection, garlic bread , and the dessert of the day (nice touch) all for 130p apiece.

i told the owner that i intended to write a review because we really enjoyed our meals.

do yourself a favor and stop for dinner---we will again---you won't be sorry.

Read the reviews and you will see that this restaurant's reputation is growing. Embarcadero was recommended to us or we probably would not have gone in (there are many good restaurants in PV but this was our best meal). We went on our last day and were not disappointed. The service, presentation of food and taste were excellent. The price was very reasonable, about $20 for two of us including a beer. It is worth looking for and needs a bigger sign!
