I have no complaints. Of course it wasn't a 5 star resort, but for the price, what do you expect? Our family of six stayed just recently, and had a very comfortable stay. All the staff were very friendly, and the food was great in the restaurant. We loved the pool after a day out exploring, and the beach is... More

These guys really need some help or something. The service is poor. The food is really not good. In fact I asked the waiter if I could feed the dogs outside with it and he helped me. Most would be offended. The drinks were very good so I give it two stars. This restaurant is on the hotel property but... More

After checking in we decided to give this a chance. The dinner was excellent and inexpensive. They warned us that what we ordered was very spicy, but that's the way we like it. Not very fast, but we're in Mexico...no worries!

When you are in Puerto Vallarta or staying in Mismaloya (a quieter, more intimate neighborhood of wonderful), eat here. Get off the coastal highway and come inland a few miles to this unforgettable, multi-layered restaurant that is built above a wild, bounding river. There are walking trails along the boulders and down to the river. There are some lizards lazing... More

Most people like this kind of food. To me it is oversalted, overgreasy and does not have the freshness of Mexican food stateside. May have something to do with the lack of customers. But the service is outstanding and friendly, and I imagine if I'd asked for salt-free food I would have done better. We ate here several times, always... More
