“Find It--You'll Like It!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

When in Puerto Vallarta, we frequent Red Cabbage at least once a week. The food quality, authenticity and presentation is consistently delicious. Antonio, Sergio and Walter are the most attentive to making sure your experience is perfect. The restaurant is quaint, with a Frida Kahlo theme. It was a converted house with seating on the first floor and kitchen on the second. The mole Oaxaca is the best I have found in Mexico. Get the Mole Oaxaca with Chicken, Mexican Platter (little bit of everything), or the Carnitas (pork) in salsa verde. This is a definite "must go to" when you visit PV. A taxi is recommended- a very short ride from downtown and hotels. There is usually one waiting for you as you depart.

“Excellent hidden treasure”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Hidden away from the main streets is this wee treasure. Excellent food, great service, lovely pictures and decorations, toilets are lovely also. So worth a visit. Get a taxi though or else you will be going around in circles trying to find it. ACE but you must book

“Great authentic restaurant”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Nice restaurant looking restaurant with yummy authentic food and great tasting strong margaritas. Had the peanut soup and the tortilla soup. Both were great. The mole oxacao (sp) was really outstanding. The chili rellano was superb. We would definitely go back to this great restaurant.

“Two great meals in a stunning setting”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We ate at the Red Cabbage twice during our stay to Puerto Vallarta. The food was great and the setting was beautiful. We had the honor of meeting the owner the second evening. Highly recommend reservations on weekends.

“Fun place to eat and the food is good too!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

The restaurant is out of the way, but that is part of the fun. the food and service is good. If you want to have a quiet meal; without the typical noise of a PV restaurant, this is the place.

BRING CASH! NO CREDIT CARDS.
