We each had a burger and was delicious. Excellent meat, prepared well, and great presentation. Service was good, would recommend to anyone. They have great choices of all kinds of burgers.

This is very embarrassing I hope you understand that this is not our policy. In order for me to correct the problem, it would be helpful to know the time of your visit and other details. Thank you

We were there at lunch. First the waitress came back to say they were out of burgers, but after we looked at menu a while longer, she came back to say now she's had burgers. Two of the three of us ordered burgers. We were...More

Sorry to hear, maybe if you could describe to me the waitress I could do something about it. you say that you had your burger redone can you explain further so I can inquire more on your case.

I arrived this morning to get some breakfast. There was no one to greet me at the entrance so I picked up a menu from the podium before sitting down. The waitress came over and kept insisting that she give me a different menu. "...More

Let's see if I understand, you left because the waitress was trying to hand you the menu in YOUR lenguaje? Maybe you think you speak Spanish and you don't. Besides, this place doesn't have an entrance, it's a sidewalk cafe. Sorry about disparaging your president,...More

This restaurant is another gem in Puerto Vallarta. The view is wonderful, the food is exceptional and the setting superb. A wonderful mariachi band plays there several evenings a week. They sound more like a small orchestra. Very talented. We took a staff member there...More

San Angel Cafe (pronounced Ann hell)is an icon of Vallarta, open since 1998 it has been providing only the best service and quality foods and beverages, both to the locals and the tourist alike. We pride ourselves to be the introducers of gurmet coffee drinks to this town way before Satrbucks even knew it existed. Our concept is a Gourmet Diner, somewhwere where you can dine, wine or simply have coffee and pastries from our Calorie Gallery. We are two retaurants (separated by time rather than by space) under one roof, one is what is known by the american and canadian expats as The Breakfast Club, where you can have both, american and mexican breakfast. The other is The Hamburger Grill that features our list of very interesting burgers made with Angus Prime Beef prpared with our 20 year old recipe. San Angel is located in Olas Altas the main street of what we call the Latin Quarter of Vallarta, in a corner with a full sidewalk area where you can "watch the crazies walk by" and have fun while townspeople do their daily stuf. Come and have a delightfull couple of hours with us, and bring your dog too!
