We have been to Vitea many times during our trips to Puerto Vallarta. It has always been excellent and never disappoints us. Every dish has been prepared to perfection and they are willing to make changes you may request. The ambience right on the Malecon is perfect for travelers and those who live here. We particularly enjoy the salads, seafood... More

Vita has a varied menu including wonderful pasta dishes, shrimp dishes and more. The food is very tasty and Ulf always tries to make the diners feel at home. The view of the Ocean is beautiful but the food is the reason to dine here

Great location with ocean views and breezes. The portabella mushroom appetizer was one of the BEST dishes I have EVER had, with no exaggeration. Staff is a little lax on knowing the menu (hubby got fried shrimp when he asked for the bisque). We cleaned our plates, and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. (Be prepared, when sitting on the outside row... More

One of my favorite places for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They are consistently perfect! The pasta carbonara is the best in town. I get the Baja omelet every time I'm there for breakfast. Not a bad thing on the menu. The service is excellent. My only complaint is 125.00 for a margarita!

Certainly one of the best restaurants in PV. On the malecon with inside and outside dining. Salads and appetizers are very good. Shrimp tempura is devine! Service is excellant. Best Margarita in Vallarta. Great place for families also. Chef Ulf maintains the highest standards! Fun for the kids on the malecon.

Early morning breakfast on a Monday AM. Friendly service and good coffee - a good start. I opted for the sopes and hubby went for the huevos divorciadas. Sopes were flavorful. While the dough wasn't quite light and flaky, it was airy and NOT hockey-puckish. Woo hoo! Hubby liked his breakfast- prepped just to his specifications. Would have liked more... More

Maybe this is more for the owner than customers ? We stopped by for a few drinks in the afternoon. Waiters were slow ......the view is good and it was fun to people watch. When our bill came it was hand written with a total ??? beers were double the price of the place next door ?? Having owned restaurants... More
