“Gourmet dining on a world class level”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

Friends took us here the first night we arrived in Mexico. What a suprize. This is as great as any European or North American restaurant with a claim to fame. It is beige tha it seems from the narrow street entrance and we dined up a level walking through a lovely area full of diners enjoying the evening. The decor is fresh and interesting and the are lots of neat dining alcoves giving a feeling if intimacy In what would otherwise be a very large space. Upstairs is partly open to the sky. It was raining that evening so we were under a false patio overhang and could see up to the skies and what stars were out. Service was on the slow side but the food was worth the wait. We were very late dining for us, but it was prime time for the restaurant.

“The best in Puerto Vallarta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

We have been dining at Trio at least twice during each of our annual visits to P. Vallarta. The food is fabulous, beautifully presented and served with style and grace. The clientele is American for the most part, so the prices are a bit higher than many restaurants in town, but an excellent value nevertheless. The menu is extensive. In my opinion the fish, particularly the sea bass with grapes, is the best choice. Many entrees are available in half or full portions; the half portions should be more than enough for most diners. The ambience is wonderful: nice table settings, good distance between tables and excellent, non-intrusive music. Don't miss Trios if you are looking for an upscale, delicious meal! Reservations are available on Open Table which makes the process very easy.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

This was our third visit to PV and our third visit to Trio. It is downtown PV and the dinners have been consistently wonderful each time. The restaurant has a very nice ambience and there is always a musician playing on the steps leading to the second level. We have been to some other terrific restaurants in PV but if someone were to ask me which restaurant to go to if he only had one night I would have to say Trio.

“Lovely location very good food attentive staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

We had a lovely meal at Trio this week. The ambience is really nice and there was live music which was an added bonus. The service was good though there were a few missteps with the timing and delivery.
You have a choice on most dishes of full portion or half portion. Order the half portion! We can't imagine the size of a full portion as the lesser option was definitely enough.
The pasta appetizer with shrimp was excellent - the shrimp cooked perfectly and the pasta was fresh. The seafood soup was a standout - amazing!
We both ordered the beef filet and both orders were cooked perfectly and again the size was what we would consider full portion.
Bill for two with drinks was about $95 - high for Puerto Vallarta however by Canadian standards this meal would easily have cost $150-200.

“First Class, in Every Way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

We returned to Trio and very glad we did. Classy ambience. We called for reso, wanted romantic, and they gave us the table for two right in front of the window. Lots of staff, excellent menu choices. I am a Foie Gras nut, so I really enjoyed that appetizer. Main courses are offered in two sizes, great! Live music showed up for a few songs - charming. Very reasonable prices. One if our top 3 restaurants in PV.
