Maria and staff along with her husband Ken have created a wonderful place to dine right near the new pier. The only downside is how popular they have become so getting a table is tough. Look for a possible expansion in the future. We like them for lunch and the Baja style shrimp tacos are to die for! 3 large tacos cooked to perfection. Add a Pacifico (or 2) and dinner is almost an afterthought. The decor continues to change with each trip Maria makes to Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque so we look forward to the new items and the margaritas on our next trip down. Being able to walk there on the beach from our condo in 10 minutes is great. Thanks to everyone who has made this our number 1 choice.

Our last nite in PV celebrating an important birthday, we finally found this place after a casual recommendation from friends. Great find! Not too big, but lively and also cosy at the same time. The two hosts are very attentive, and the food is great. Predominantly seafood, it lives up to its reputation of absolute freshness. The margaritas are pretty darn good too! Started off with a Caeaar Salad - finally someone got it right! The Shrimp cocktail spoke of fresh as well. Mains of Mahi Mahi, and a lobster for madame - both excellent, again, very fresh! Complimentary key lime pie finished things off nicely. Can't wait to go back. It is just off Olas Alta across from Archie's Wok . The Dollar Rent a Car is on the corner. Worth booking in advance as it is pretty small. They do have expansion plans for the future though

This was our first visit because we won a gift certificate from the PuRR Project charity bingo night. We probably never would have know about this small gem in Old Town otherwise. It's a cozy small (10 table) place, excellent wait staff, and delicious food. We enjoyed the Parmesan Crusted shrimp and fettuccine, and also the Marinated Shrimp Fajitas. We will definitely return here! This is just a nice place operated by people who know how to run a restaurant! Prices are reasonable and the Margaritas and Sangria are well made....just a good experience all around.

This small restaurant is almost impossible to get into without a reservation. The cuisine is part american and part mexican with highly educated chefs from both. The presentation of the meals are second to none. The meals are excellent and the staff extremely friendly. This by far was my favorite restaurant experience in puerta Vallarta! Recommended!

This resturaunt opened in Aug so it was new to us. What a find!!!! The food, service, and price were GREAT! Each day they determine the specials based upon what is fresh in the market that day, so each day is a special treat. We went twice for dinner and were sorry we didn't have any more nights to come back. It is small so don't come too late. I know you will love it!
