Wonderful food, staff and a great view of the sunset ! Nobody could give this restraint a bad rating unless they are the type of people that can never be satisfied in life.

The atmosphere was very nice but for the price there are better options nearby and drinks were ridiculously expensive compared with surrounding restaurants.

It's not far. A longish walk or short taxi ride. Taxis are cheap BUT agree on fare before you get in NOT after you arrive.

Limited nearby quality "hotel" options. Many, many condos are for rent via VRBO, TripAdvisor, etc. Keep in mind, it's an easy and cheap taxi ride from the hotel zone.

The Blue Shrimp Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta is the best seafood restaurant in the area, long time established. Situated off Olas Altas Beach, on the ocean with spectacular daily view of the sunset, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant is a fun atmosphere with occasional live entertainment, under a large palapa roof and ‘boat-deck’ feel. Open for lunch and dinner, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant serves mouth-watering seafood and shrimp concoctions that you cannot find anywhere else! The restaurant is a great place to bring the family, celebrate a birthday, romantic dinner, or special event. Come sit down with us, right at the end of the Malecon and feel the breeze of the Banderas Bay, it’s Shrimply The Best!
