We had not been here in several years. Nice parking area with security. The service was fine. The view is great. We ordered the lobster it was over done and chewy. We had to send back. Cost for a small 1lb. Lobster meal is 20.00 US. Per person. The tortilla soup with your meal is basic red chili water. They let us sample a lobster cream soup which was much better. They also serve rice, beans, flour tortilla, and a cream cheese jalapeño bread roll. The rolls are good. A party of 2 with drinks total bill 62.00 US.

I was reading the review of some mexican who felt riped off at this place, sorry mexican but if you ask for giant lobster you will have to pay the price here or elsewhere. I recomend to this person to visit a street taqueria instead of a restaurant. As for the restaurant i highly recomend this place because they have the worlds famous lobster puerto nuevo style. The flour tortillas are the bigest i have ever seen 2ft X 2ft. The price is really the same troughout the restaurants here at $20 USD per person. You get a 2 pound lobster/it could be two halves or four depending on the zise and you get it with beans,salad,tortillas,bread,rice and a smile. I think that if you dont get satisfied by this who knows what you need to eat to be satisfied. The taste is grat, personally i have never tasted lobster this good anywhere else. This i must say is my place to visit to eat lobster. Out of all my reviews this place gets my gold medal for lobster!
P.S> Look at the picture of a giant lobster they serve for $35USD.

As you drive into Puerto Nuevo you will be inundated with restaurant workers guiding you to various restaurants, don't be fooled, go directly to Villa Ortegas for what is historically the best in Town!!

Being Mexican I felt rape by the exagerated high prices of this restaurant, the service is not that good and the lobster..........nothing good about it. We got what they called giant lobster, 35 USD per animal. Serve cut by half, dry, not so big....lots of beans and guacamole, but the tortillas de harina were excellent though.

Also drinks are to expensive, small, and not that good. We were 4 people on September 14, 2012 and the bill was 385.00 USD plus tip, afterwards we went to another restaurant because we still were hungry.

The restaurant is has an impresive beatiful view, and is well maintain. It seats easily 500 people. this is the original Villa Ortega at the end of the road to the far left, they open a new branch but is empty and has no view. very funny and attentive chef named Jose.

I guess Villa Ortega was an excellent place way back when, but now a days they seems to cather to the tourists passing throuw instead of the regular crowd, I guess this business model wont last long.

Red Lobster next time.........

cheers
