On your next trip to Puerto Vallarta, take time to go off the beaten "tourist" path for dinner by going and enjoying a fabulous meal at THE HAPPY LOBSTER, or to the locals, La Langosta Feliz!

We had lobster, shrimp and crab claws and sides ... although it was promoted as a meal for two, I'm certain at least one other person could have joined in on our grazing. The lobster was unbelievably delicious ... the shrimp were not only huge, but very tasty. The crab legs, well, what can I say. Muy Bien!

Certainly will be our list of local places to go when we return to Puerto Vallarta.

Many restaurants in the area offer a dinner for 2 special with lobster, red snapper, shrimp, baked potato, and veggies for around 50 US dollars. This is a local place with the best dinner for 2 I have had in the bay! Any cab can take you there and pick you up and if you ask the concierge at your hotel, they will more than likely have a card that will give you 10% off. I try to eat here at once every time i come down, which has been yearly for the past 7 years. Try the ice cream if you have the room after dinner. They will also brig a tray around to show you what they have fresh from the bay that day if you don't want a big romantic dinner for 2.

This was the first restaurant that we dined in when we arrived in Puerto Vallarta. Our cab driver recommended this restaurant as we asked him for a recommendation. At first we thought that the cab driver was taking us for a ride as this place was not anywhere near the Malecon (we asked to be brought to a restaurant close to the Malecon), but we decided to give it a try anyways since our party of seven had two toddlers and it was getting late.

Now we are back in the US and I felt like I needed to write this review to give this place a boost in business.

Boy are we glad that we went along with the cabby's recommendation. We actually used the same cab driver for a few more times after this, as all his recommendations were good and he charges a good price. But that's another story. Back to the review.

The service is excellent. The host came and took our strollers and stored them for us. Then we were brought to the upper floor where they have the dining area (other than the roof, the dining area was open with fans on the walls/ceilings). We were then presented with a menu full of seafood items and we made a few selections, and some based on the recommendations from our waiter. They also had a plate of seafood sample to show you what each combination item in the menu consists of so that you do not get confused.

The food that came was fresh, and the sauces are excellent. I could not remember exactly what we ordered, but we had some lobsters, jumbo shrimp, fish, crab. We ordered one of the big combinations and a few other entrees and all of us came out of the restaurant a few pounds heavier. Price-wise, we thought that the restaurant is comparable with other restaurants that we went to in PV (except for taco stands) and the food quality is equal if not better than most of the other restaurants.

We came out of the restaurant feeling great, this dining experience set our expectation for the rest of our PV trip.

A group of "Cruise Critics" from the Celebrity Infinity dined here. Speaking for my wife and I, we found the service to be very good to excellent. From all appearances, no one was disappointed with their lunch. The restaurant is mostly open air. The clientele consisted of families, business people and tourists.

They have a huge selection of seafood. They showed us a large platter from which we picked our entrees.

The preparation and presentation was very good.

We did have drinks with ice as well as dairy. No problems were noted.

I would like to visit this restaurant again at a more leisurely pace in the future.

This is the best seafood place in town. Lots and lots of seafood to choose from and very reasonable. Only dislike is the singing group while you eat, although they do not force you to get their services. You will be happy when you leave. Stick with the beers.
