My wife and I came upon this little gem of a restauraunt purely by accident, but are so happy we did!!!! The place itself is beautiful and unique but what really impressed us was the food!!!! Although the menu reads simple, and it is not extensive, it is beautifully executed. Whoever runs this kitchen obviously has been around the block and knows how to cook. If you visit Yelapa (and you should), this is a must!!!!!!

Passionflower Gardens is a welcoming place in the jungle of Yelapa. Not in the main village, its just a short walk upriver, but well worth the extra 8 or 10 minutes it takes to get there. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed and the food is fantastic. The roast beef was not only the best we’ve had in Mexico, but maybe anywhere! Prices are most fair in Yelapa for the quality. Liana is the chef and new owner. She just took over this year and has done a great job of putting it together. Open Mike attracts some very talented people too. An enjoyable experience all around!

We ate with April @ Passion Flower Gardens for the 2012 Election returns party. It was such an amazing family at home type atmosphere. Burger, Potato salad, coleslaw, spice cake were all outstanding. We had a great time and meet new friends. Thanks for having us!

Great place to meet people, good drinks. Meal was mediocre, which was disappointing because I chose this place to celebrate my birthday. Had fun, but would not recommend the food.

Hello, thanks for your review, dated Oct. 25. Just curious about when you were here, since the restaurant has been closed for many months.
The restaurant is re-opening under new management next week, and we hope you will come and give it a try. There is a new menu and new chef, with the same great jungle atmosphere.
