“Disappointed. .”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

I read a lot of good reviews about this restaurant so we decided to try it out. Tostada ceviche and Camarones were good but they had no salsa to add to your meal. Service was terrible, waiter forgot about us and gratuity was already included. There was only four families dinning during our visit, hate to see it busy. Good luck

“had a nice late lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

This place is right next door to the Vallarta Adventures Dolphin Experience, so we popped in here after the kids went swimming with the dolphins and had a late lunch.
We had eaten at the other 8 Tostadas in Marina Vallarta, so I have something to compare it to. I thought the food and drinks here were better, and I didn't have an inflated bill like at the other location. I ordered a fish of the day with garlic and it was great.

I'm not a fan of Nuevo Vallarta and you wouldn't make a trip here just to eat at this place, but if like us you are next door at the Dolphin Experience, it's a good place to grab a meal or drink.

“Poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

We were here 3 years ago and thought we would visit this year. We ate an early dinner. Maybe it was the time of day, but the service was terrible. There were only a couple of tables occupied but it it took for ever to get our drinks and food. We had to ask for silverware. the food was fine but nothing special. The prices are average for the area.

“Much more affordable than eating at the resort.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

After talking to other guests at the Grand Mayan Resort they recommended going into town for a delicious, inexpensive meal at 8 Tostadas. They were right. My wife enjoyed the Red Snapper, I had the house special octopus and my daughter enjoyed her fish, though I can not remember what type. The drinks were aggressively poured and the staffs attentiveness was appreciated. We will definitely be back there next year as we were out of there with a generous tip for under $70. Also, for those that are leery of wandering around Mexico we walked from the resort and felt completely safe.

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for sharing these kind words about our restaurant. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us, our top priority is our guest experience, always! Nuevo Vallarta is a very safe place to walk around, it has a lot of security and is located within a closed community, plus we are very close to all the resorts in the area, some are only a 5 min walk away!

We hope to see you back again very soon!

Best Regards,
