This establishment has been here almost since John Huston put Puerto Vallarta on the map. The meals are a fusion of fresh vegetables, chicken, fish,and ingenious spices and herbs all blended to form one delicious eating experience. Archie would still be proud of his creation.

Great menu with Asian influenced dishes fish, seafood, vegetarian and meat dishes. Something for everyone. I love the vegetables with ginger. Wines and drinks are reasonably priced. Quiet but just one block from the beach and water taxi pier

Nice place with Asian food. Margaritas are not so good, but food is nice. The restaurant is not in a very visible area but is around the restaurant area in Romantic Zone.

No. There's simply no way for Mexicans to address celiac disease that affects only 1% of the population, especially when most gluten-free alternatives are significantly more expensive than their conventional counterparts.

Archie's Wok is widely recognized as Puerto Vallarta's best Asian fusion restaurant, featuring authentic, freshly prepared cuisine that spans the Pacific Rim from Thailand to the Philippines, to China and Vietnam. The staff offers traditional and contemporary dishes from these distinctive regions. They daily prepare a palette of complex sauces and condiments. Savor the aromas of spicy chili sambals, curry pastes, their famous hoisin sauce for the ribs and chiang mai sauce, too. The menu is truly a cuisine of medleys, which combines Pacific Island foods, Asian cooking techniques, Mexico's fresh ingredients and a host of other cultural and culinary influences. Seafood is caught daily in Banderas Bay and delivered fresh to the restaurant. Locally grown ingredients include an array of vegetables, herbs and spices, including kaffir lime, galangal, lemon grass, ginger, chilies, tamarind, and coconut milk. These are native to both Asia and the Mexican Coast. Archie's Wok has been family owned and operated since 1986. The history starts in 1977 when Archie Alpenia began working as the famous Hollywood Director John Huston's private chef at his personal retreat in Banderas Bay. From then on the restaurant continues to be run by his wife Cindy, daughter Kyoki and son Sergio. His legacy continues in this comfortable restaurant. Archie's Wok is just steps away from the Los Muertos Beach Pier and is a great location to meet friends and family. The restaurant is casually elegant and their team is committed to great service, excellent food and a comfortable setting. You can enjoy lunch and dinner in this sublime atmosphere with dining room and Asian style garden.
