The service and food were very good. The price was right, too. We were seated with a view of the lagoon during sunset. The restaurant is open, meaning no left or right walks enclosing it, but it is totally roofed in. I ordered the medium...More

This was our second visit to The Blue Shrimp Restaurant. It has outstanding shrimp, lobster, seafood and steak options. The service is great and you can enjoy watching the activities on the beach. The mojito drinks were great!

A delightful place to eat right on a lovely stretch of beach in the Romantic Zone. Since I am a Calamari lover, I ordered the appetizer of fried calamari strips. They were delicious, along with what they called the cocktail sauce which was very good...More

Limited nearby quality "hotel" options. Many, many condos are for rent via VRBO, TripAdvisor, etc. Keep in mind, it's an easy and cheap taxi ride from the hotel zone.

The Blue Shrimp Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta is the best seafood restaurant in the area, long time established. Situated off Olas Altas Beach, on the ocean with spectacular daily view of the sunset, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant is a fun atmosphere with occasional live entertainment, under a large palapa roof and ‘boat-deck’ feel. Open for lunch and dinner, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant serves mouth-watering seafood and shrimp concoctions that you cannot find anywhere else! The restaurant is a great place to bring the family, celebrate a birthday, romantic dinner, or special event. Come sit down with us, right at the end of the Malecon and feel the breeze of the Banderas Bay, it’s Shrimply The Best!
