Had lunch here and ordered the special and is was just OK. The location on the beach is the best thing about the place. On the other hand you could do worse.

Ocean side open air restaurant is perfect for lunch or dinner. Amazing margaritas ! We enjoyed the seafood soup [huge portion] and the coconut shrimp still makes my mouth water. A must 'eat here' place

A nice atmosphere, great beach views, although somewhat tacky décor. All servers were excellent, but the food, while fine, was very ordinary. Seafood was simply presented and a bit overcooked and dry...a shame, considering their premium beach location.

I don't particularly remember a happy hour. Most places in Puerto Vallarta don't have a "happy hour" like in the US. They usually have 2 for 1's and mostly all day.

It's not far. A longish walk or short taxi ride. Taxis are cheap BUT agree on fare before you get in NOT after you arrive.

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!
