Our Vallarta host suggested that we try this amazing little restaurant! So happy we listened! Have had many great dining experiences in Vallarta and love trying new places! Our dishes were prepared beautifully and the flaming dessert what so good! Make this a stop for sure!

What a hidden gem! I took my mother here with a group of friends for her 60th. It was so amazing. Service... Food and atmosphere was amazing. The pork was out of this world :)

Encanto is the closest I know to a wonderful meal we'd prepare in our own home. And why not?! Encanto is in an old style Vallarta house, now a delightful "shabby chic" interior. The staff are always the best, doing whatever they can to make our experience fabulous. Complimentary corn cakes (succulent!) and wonderful appetizers and main courses with many delicious items not listed on the menu. Ask your server whats available for the night. I live in Vallarta and I brought VERY savvy hotel/restaurant folks visiting from Seattle. They were blown away with the entire experience!

What a little gem! Food was great, waitstaff was attentive, and it was a superb value! The ambience is soft and charming. We have a home in PV, and plan to eat here many times!

We are on our last couple of evenings and our daughter requested coconut shrimp. Wow. We made a great choice. After walking a bit in a residential area, we found the place we were looking for! Enrique, the server, was so charming. Our experience was great. We started with chips and delicious salsa with corn and beans. The corn cakes and lovely home made bread arrived, all on the house. The coconut shrimp portion, while not inexpensive, was huge and very tasty! I had tortilla soup and hubby had fish margarita.

There was only one other table occupied while we were there. Hopefully just because a Monday evening in lower season. Our meal ended with complimentary flan and Kaluha and cream for the two of us.

Enrique made our evening. Please do not hesitate to try this authentic PV establishment. Only small quibble may be that alcohol prices a wee bit high.
