The atmosphere was great, nice and super clean restaurant with the most friendliest staff around. Even the owner came over to our table and asked how things were.

Arrived right after happy hour ended so we were one of 3 couples dining. Husband and I wanted a place to have a drink and enjoy the view. The service was very attentive since it wasn't very crowded. As soon as I finished my margarita, another was on its way. Ceviche was fresh and delicious!

The Blue Shrimp is a solid restaurant with good food located right on the beach. The prices are reasonable, the food is pretty good and the location can't be beat. Worth a stop if you're in the area.

After an afternoon of shopping and touring afoot, we chose The Blue Shrimp for a respite of libations, and chips/guacamole. This was a quant place, full of Old Mexico flavor. The guacamole was made table side, and terrific. The service and the prices were good too. Be sure to check out the bathrooms!

Great place to have dinner on the beach. If you want shrimp this is the place. Generous portions and great service. Prices are what you would expect for being on the beach.

This great venue right on the water is a wonderful place to stop for a cappachino and their famous Key Lime Pie! Very enjoyable watching the breakers come in and seeing everyone scramble to get out of the way. Highly recommend!

This restaurant was exceptional. The quality of food and the creativity of the chef was as good as New York or Toronto, and possibly better! The service and margaritas were outstanding! I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to anyone visiting Puerto Vallarta.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Blue Shrimp our last night in Puerto Vallarta. We had scouted out the menu earlier in the day, even sampling the coconut shrimp and receiving a coupon for a free trip to the salad bar. My friend and I split the coconut shrimp, which combined with the salad bar, was enough for the... More

We had an outstanding meal here. The salad bar was simple but fresh and delicious. The fish was fresh and well prepared. We even had delicious white wine which seemed to be a bit of a commodity in PV! Great service and view. We highly recommend this spot!

The table was ready for us. Services was very good. They remembered my son from last year. I had coconut shrimp. They were very large with a crispy coating. The meals are huge. I think everyone was pleased.

Thank J&W

The Blue Shrimp Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta is the best seafood restaurant in the area, long time established. Situated off Olas Altas Beach, on the ocean with spectacular daily view of the sunset, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant is a fun atmosphere with occasional live entertainment, under a large palapa roof and ‘boat-deck’ feel. Open for lunch and dinner, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant serves mouth-watering seafood and shrimp concoctions that you cannot find anywhere else! The restaurant is a great place to bring the family, celebrate a birthday, romantic dinner, or special event. Come sit down with us, right at the end of the Malecon and feel the breeze of the Banderas Bay, it’s Shrimply The Best!
