This is a lovely restaurant with great atmosphere and very attentive staff. Sadly, the food was the big let down. The dish was lifeless and tasteless with soggy noodles. Great things can be done with a Wok. The tea was delicious.

Lovely atmosphere and attentive waiters. Beautiful table setting and interesting menu. In the past our food here had been very tasty but tonight's meal was truly substandard. We ordered the Garlic Shrimp, which came beautifully served on a colorful bed of lettuce but smothered in a mushly green paste in which I could identify bits of smashed up baby corn... More

The atmosphere is romantic and 'dRachel playing the harp weekend nights adds to the atmosphere and the Asian food choices. Over the years of our visit we have tried everything on the menu and found them all to be delicious. Asian chicken is still my favourite though!

We love Thai / Asian food but this restaurant went above and beyond! It's asian and mexicon fusion. Every single item we ordered was simply excellent...even the chicken satays. We loved it so much, we packed a to-go box for dinner. I had the grilled fish in banana leaves, and my husband had the beef dish (the gravy of which... More

This restaurant is great and very comfortable, plus good service and great food. Super taste, a big selection of asian dishes. Either get there early or make a reservation, this place is crowded.

Coming from Vancouver, I've had better. This restaurant is a little overrated, and slightly pricey for what is offered. That said, if you need a change from traditional eats on vacation in Puerto Vallarta, this will fit the bill. The staff are congenial but things happen a little slow. Access is not easy from street level, so someone with mobility... More

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.
