“Classy place, good art work”
Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

They serve CHILE EN NOGADA, a national dish that is red, white, and green. Green mild chiles stuffed with ground beef for the green, white walnut cream sauce on top for the white, and pomegranate seeds for the red! Wonderful blend of flavored for only about $10. Mouth watering and not easy to find.
Maria will welcome you at the door. A great job do decorating the old Nacho Daddy.

“Little things make for a great experience”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

It's often the little things. Small things that make you want to avoid or return to a restaurant, be it service, atmosphere, amenities, portion size, menu diversity, prices or flavors.
Old Town Bistro (where Nacho Daddy used to be) is being run by someone who looks after the little things.
I had dinner with a group (12 of us). The live entertainment was delightful, and to our surprise, the manager asked the group to lower the volume. (Background music SHOULD be in the background). The staff was attentive without being invasive or intrusive. Portions were larger than expected, and the prices were very reasonable. (BTW - If you are an IFC member, they will give you a 15% discount)
I will return with this group and other friends. With over 300 different restaurants to choose from in Puerto Vallarta, places like this should be on everyones Top Ten List.

“GREAT New Find in Old PV”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Visited the laste eveing of the trip. This very pleasant restaurant in Old PV had smartly dressed attentive staff, linen tablecloths and napkins. Very extensive menu means there is something for everyone. I recommend the Coconut Shrimp with beet and orange puree - fantastic .

“We will be back!!!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

What a wonderful experience tonight at this restaurant in the heart of Old Town. It has been redecorated beautifully (used to be Nacho Daddy's). The service was impeccable as was the dinner. There were 11 of us, going out on our usual Wednesday night, and we miraculously all got served a hot meal at the same time!!! Quell surprise! Between the 11 of us, we must have tried a good 7 entrées...VERY good. No one had a complaint about their meal. The rolls served beforehand were delicious. The best part..it was a real cabaret experience, albeit a bit loud. There was a great singer of show tunes to entertain. A wonderful evening enjoyed by all...we will be back! P.S Prices were very reasonable.
