Don't know if it was the lobster or the melon drinks, but something made us both sick, and it happened immediately after eating. We both recovered after a couple of hours, so it wasn't a horrendous episode, but even so, it wasn't fun having gut-aches. We ate here on Sunday night, and Sunday was a "no electricity" day here on... More

The service was quick and friendly. A bit more expensive than I imagined, the portion sizes where way over the top on the pasta with chicken and cheese. I assume this 'covers' the price of the meal. My girlfriend liked the shrimp curry Located one block in from the busy beach side

We traveled through Belize during lobster season, so we tried lobster lots of places, but this place was by far the best! The lobster was cooked perfectly and seasoned well, served with potatoes, garlic bread, and vegetables for $32 BZ/plate. We returned the next day for lunch and ordered a plate of fish and chips ($18 BZ) and a chicken... More

My daughter and I ate here on a trip and I can't wait to go back! The food is fabulous and not terribly expensive. Not super cheap though if that's what you're looking for. It's very close to the hotel zone was a 3 minute cab ride from the Sheraton Bouganvillas.

My wife and I stayed here twice for tasty and reliable breakfasts. We loved the Fry jacks with jam and the potato hash browns. The service is a bit bare but not bad. We even sat on the covered patio for a long time to escape from rain, and the staff were really understanding. The coffee isn't the best, but... More

The Happy Lobster restaurant in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is a must for any seafood loving person! The restaurant is an upstairs terrace with one flight of stairs with a view of the mountain jungles surrounding. Taxi is a must...you'll never find it on your own! The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The food says it all! You're presented with... More

Happy Lobster was recommended by our hotel and was one of the only restaurants consistently open on the island during the low season. We had both lunch and dinner there, sitting outside on the brightly colored table and benches combo. We found the food to be very good, both the chicken dishes, the meat dishes and the eponymous lobster (excellent!).... More
