We've tried other Mexican restaurants in the area. Puerto Vallarta is where we keep going back to. A large variety of dishes to choose from, delicious to our taste buds, very nice, friendly & informative staff. They make us feel like "home" & greet their clients with "Hola Amigos" (Hello Friends). We come so often that staff recognize us now.... More

We celebrated a birthday here. The food is abundant but typical American version on Mexican fare. However, the servers were very nice and went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of.

We went on a Saturday late morning to get some food. The waitress in the bar, told us about what is going on. They had a buffet, and we tried it. It was really tasty, and I (vegetarian) and my friend (meat eater) were impressed with the array of delicious food before us. Staff is also outstanding.

My husband and I went out to eat here over the weekend with our 2 children. I will say the staff was very helpful and very attentive making sure our glasses were continously full and our needs met. The Margarita was tasty although if you're looking for alcohol to be in it, I can't be too sure about that. Thankfully,... More

Love the ambiance of the place and the greenery everywhere. The authentic looking decor, even the bathrooms are beautiful!!! Plates are always delicious and haven't ever had a complaint in many trips here. Staff is always attentive. Margaritas range from baby size to elephant size so beware don't get the large unless you're really thirsty! Lol

Went here once. Decent place for Mexican food. I don't remember what I ordered. The other alternative is Mayan on Marvin Road.

This place is a cut above the usual Mexican restaurant fare that I've found. The ambience certainly is! High backed booths....quiet..... cloth napkins.....For 3 tired travelers, it was a find! More varieties of enchiladas than I've seen. I tried the Enchilada en Crema and it was delicious! The free table fare included red and green salsa, bean dip, and pico... More

Poor Lacey. This town struggles in the restaurant department. Whenever we want to go out for dinner and start to groan about the lack of culinary diversity and quality in Lacey, we either: A) drive to Tacoma or Seattle or B) head to Puerto Vallarta (the restaurant!). This is a beautiful restaurant in all regards: service, decor, portions and quality.... More

The owners and staff make you feel like you're family when you walk in the door, during your meal, and as you depart. I have not had a bad meal and I have had several at this restaurant. I will be a regular!

The food and service are both good. They are always willing to make adjustments for my peculiarities. And did I mention the food is good? It's always crowded. I try to sit in the bar. Very good Mole sauce, which is my true indicator of how good a Mexican restaurant is.
