Our taxi driver took us here - just up the road from Riviera Nayarit. An beautiful open air restaurant overlooking a lake full of turtles. They quickly brought chips and 3 kinds of salsa. I had a salad of shrimp in avocado halves which was fabulous (surrounded by tomato, cucumber, lettuce and orange slices all covered with thousand island dressing).... More

Been here before, great prices and great food! We piña coladas, which we're a little watered down, we had a seafood dish with rice which was very good , and the coconut shrimp. The portions were large and when we got the bill we were pleasantly surprised! They also had a Mexican three piece band that played a song by... More

At La Laguna you dine on a covered deck over the lagoon. There are turtle that hang out in the water below that are fun to watch. The establishment is casual, but atmosphere is slightly formal. The night we were there lobster was the special and they brought the the large lobster and huge shrimp out to show you. The... More

This restaurant was recommended because of my love for seafood. They did not disappoint. The restaurant sits overlooking a small lake and provided a wonderful ambiance with a soothing effect. I was a bit concerned that closeness to the water would generate a lot of biting insects. They assured me that this rarely happens but to address my concern they... More

I only had one night in Neuvo and chose this spot. I have been travelling here for the past 8 years and nothing tops La Laguna!! The staff are by far the best in the city and their warmth and friendliness make it so much more fun. I had the Snapper done their special way and it is unreal!! the... More

Wonderful ambience, cozy with strolling musicians. Food selections was varied and well delivered. The only problem I felt the waiter was very anxious in wanting to take our order, he kept returning saying are you ready NOW, no we said let us have our drinks and give us time to relax. Other then that small complaint, food and service were... More

The margarita was great, the mussels were very yummy and the fish was good--barbecued. Nice atmosphere and reasonable prices. Overlooking a lagoon with turtles and maybe some crocks--I'll go here again. Staff was friendly. Free parking and a play structure for the kids.

Toni's is a must stop in Vallarta. Somehow I always get sea food recommendations for Vallarta and somehow they always fall short in comparison to Tino's. If you are looking for fresh, regional, local, traditional cooking there's no better place than this spot near a small lagoon. Kids can feed the turtles while you enjoy Jaiba Tacos or the wonderful... More

The turtles are a highlight of this place. Staff wasn't overly friendly but food was ok but nothing special. Great menu options and it doesn't smell bad with all the turtles around, which I was afraid of. Good place to check out if have kids they will love it.
