We spent a lovely afternoon at the restaurant, sitting upstairs with a nice breeze overlooking the river. The waiters were friendly and we enjoyed the chat and the information regarding the area around Puerto Vallarta. The waiter (Alberto)made guacamole at our table which was fresh and very good.A nice way to escape the heat for a few hours.

Wonderful traditional Mexican food at a good price. Well worth a visit. We ate at about 14 restaurants for lunch and dinner during our stay and this one is at the top of our list. The Mexican plate for two was very good, the "made at your table" guacamole, too.

Everything is wonderful at this restaurant! The prices are great and the burritos and margaritas are to die for. You won't be disappointed. The waiter was very friendly and the service was exceptional. I can't wait to go back.

We went to Los Arbolitos at the recommendation of my sister who had been there a few years ago . It was excellent!! The service was fun and very good and our waiter Alberto had a great sense of humor. The owner Marissa stopped by also to make sure that everything was ok. We shared the Mexican plate for two but it was more than enough for three of us and we also had the steak and mushrooms which was excellent!!! Highly recommend and for the whiners who complained about not getting chips and salsa, we had that brought to the table as soon as we sat down and also had the guacamole made at our table ...........delicious!!

We used to love this restaurant under the old management. Unfortunately, it has gone way downhill. First off, the waiter didn't bring tostadas and salsa until we asked him to. Every restaurant I've been in has given you some to nibble on before your appetizer arrives. The salsa wasn't fresh. The green salad was awful -- a five year old could have made a better one -- and we actually had to ask for dressing. The popcorn shrimp was soggy and served barely warm.

I would give them one star, but they did give us a considerable amount of free tequila and their margaritas weren't too bad. Food-wise, forget it. Not to say they won't improve their act at some point, but we were very disappointed.
