“Great experience and amazing food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

This was a great place and the prices were very affordable. You must ask for Rick who we grew to love. He speaks inpeciable english and he also charters fishing boats. So we went out fishing for blue marlin one day and it was one of our funnest days!! Once we caught some fish his amazing Chef at the restraunt cooked it!! I was very happy we found Rick and it made our stay even more enjoyable.

“Huge Margaritas and table side guacamole”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2013

A great restaurant at the far end of the marina. We actually went twice since the first time was so good. We had the combo molcajete- sort of like fajitas in a bowl- to.die.for. The table side guacamole is complimentary-make sure to ask for it. The daytime margaritas and nighttime came in different sizes- crazy, but hand made and delicious! You may run into capt. Rick who's quite the character....

“OK food but PADDED bill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013

Forever we have been walking by this Marina Restaurant on our way to one of our favorite restaurants 2 doors south. We have always talked about stopping in and yesterday they offered free Margaritas and Guacamole with the meal so we tried it. Good lesson learned on “FREE”.
The “FREE” Margarita was one of the smallest we have ever gotten in Mexico. So we did not even bother ordering a 2nd. Then it was mainly ice and margarita mix and hopefully they did add some tequila even if I did not detect any. The “FREE” Guacamole was prepared at the table and was GREAT. The young man that prepared it was also nice. Too bad that was the highlight of the meal. We had Red Snapper that was good, but of a small portion. I had their daily special of Mai-Mai with shrimp. It was served in a bowl??? The portion was barely average, but the Mai-Mai was cook excellent yet was bland without flavor. The shrimp were over cooked and were rubbery and had no flavor. When we got the bill they had added in a 19% tip - 58+ Pesos. I have never in our worldwide travel had someone add in tip for two people. I have had restaurants show 15%, 18% and 20% tips on the bill, but NEVER had it added in for a group of two. I usually tip $2 bills which are good luck in Mexico so they actually got fewer tips than they would have been tipped by me, but adding it in must be their way to pad the bill to cover the free margaritas and guacamole. That padding and the food quality may explain why there were only 2 tables with people in the restaurant when the Marina was teaming with 100s of people there for the Farmer’s Market on Thursday night – the poor food quality, small margaritas and then them padding their bill to top off the evening.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2013

An unexpected trip (medical tourism) resulted in a visit to this quaint restaurant on Marina Vallarta. The food, service and view were all beyond belief, and I would suggest anyone visiting Puerto Vallarta choose this location for an excellent experience! Inexpensive and Delicious, best food we had all week, even tastier than the fare offered at Pipi's (suggested by a relative).
I have no reason to steer you wrong....

“Good Mexican food in Marina Vallarta”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

This is a typical simple Mexican restaurant serving all the basic Mexican favourites. We especially enjoyed the fish Veracruz and the fajitas were delicious, order them mixed. A free drink a little on the weak side was OK. A pleasant inexpensive meal.
