On a recent February visit, we had several enjoyable and delicious dinners at Bistro Balsamar in the Zona Romantica of Puerto Vallarta. The restaurant has an indoor/outdoor setting which is perfect for the climate in PV. The restaurant's kitchen is located at the entrance so you can watch Chef Alejandro prepare many of his specialties. The seafood, beef, pasta, and regional dishes were outstanding. The seafood was so fresh with some lovely sauces. The beef was better quality than I am getting in Buenos Aires. My friends had the pasta and regional cuisines and were very pleased with the quality and flavor.
If you are visiting the restaurant on Fridays then be sure to make a reservation since many of the entrees are discounted so the restaurant gets quite busy.
My compliments to Chef Alejandro and his staff for such lovely evening and excellent cuisine.
