From the greeting upon your arrival, to the interaction with the service staff, to the food and cocktails, to conclusion of your visit you will be immersed in the friendliest atmosphere you can imagine! The food is amazing! Try the shrimp boat (enough to feed... More

Things are always coming and going going in Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta. While going to our resort this past November we we're delightfully surprised to see that "the" Blue Shrimp had opened a restaurant in Nyarit. It's close to La Laguna, sittng along side the lagoon. The sky's in the evening are painted in beautiful pinks, orange, blue and... More

Had lunch today. Henry was the best waiter we could have had! Four of us ordered different things, and everyone loved their food. Definitely recommend this restaurant. Great atmosphere, great service, and great food.

This restaurant was exceptional. The food quality and creativity of the chef was as good as I have had in New York, or TORONTO, (and possibly better)! The service and margaritas are OUTSTANDING. Words cannot express the wonderful experience I had at The Blue Shrimp, and would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.

I was at Blue Shrimp 3 times between Christmas and New Years 2016. The sashimi was very good , leading us to think it would be fun to spend New Years Eve at their prepaid party. Unfortunately once they were pre paid we had a very dissapointing evening at Blue Shrimp , punta de Mitta. They did not produce food... More

My group loved this restaurant. Very quaint atmosphere with a menu focused on shrimp and fresh seafood. #1 for us is their own special version of chips with pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds in the mix....so good! The guacamole was also very tasty as a starter. We enjoyed coconut shrimp, mahi mahi, tuna tartare, and tacos carne asada. Overall the... More

Beautiful view of the bay and nice staff. Overpriced and mediocre at best food. The Blue Shrimp, the sushi place next door and the rib place next to that are all owned by the same person and I think the kitchen cooks for all of them.

We could not have asked for a better meal! The atmosphere was serene and the decor the perfect backdrop for the evening. The wait staff was very attentive and personable, and the food was amazing! Our party had coconut shrimp, fish tacos, Sea Bass, Seared Tuna, and Fettuccine. Everyone was extremely satisfied with their choices.! We finished it off sharing... More
