Excellent food, really fresh (never frozen) seafood of superior quality. They really care about getting the flavor perfect for you even if it means bringing two sauces on the side. Ask for a table by the water. It's such a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of Puerto Vallarta. Service is fast and caring. Could recommend this to anyone... More

We asked some locals where we could get some good seafood and veggies and they recommended this place. We ordered the Mahi Mahi and it was the best fish we had during our entire trip. They also had a nice salad bar and brought us the steamed veggies that we requested. A saxophone player kept us entertained and a number... More

It has become a tradition to go to Blue Shrimp the first night in PV. Every meal there is wonderful and have now made it the last night tradition also. The servers are very courteous and attentive. Can't say enough about the food, drink, and view. There is always nightly entertainment. Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous!

Based on a Trip advisor recommendation, my wife and I stopped at the Blue Shrimp for a late lunch/snack. The location is stunning - right on the beach with a beautiful breeze and waves gently crashing nearby. The restaurant is open air with quirky and fun decor. The wait staff were all very friendly, attentive and had wonderful menu recommendations... More

Large Coconut shrimp sounded delicious, but much too much sweet breading on the 5 shrimp presented; significant iodine after taste. Avocado and shrimp dish was heavy with sweet sauce and "iodine" shrimp. Waiter at lunch was nonchalant, blaise. Ocean side and name caught my attention. But total disappointment and would not recommend

The Blue Shrimp is perfectly situated: you can sit twenty yards from the ocean and enjoy spectacular sunsets and scenery. Unlike other beachside restaurants, your table isn't perched directly on the sand, so you have all of the benefits of being seaside without the wobbly table or getting sand in your shoes. Our waiter, Bruno, was fantastic. The food was... More

Three of us each had a different shrimp dish. All were good. I had a chili relleno stuffed with shrimp. Very different. Very good. Coconut shrimp and fried shrimp were very good. Fried shrimp was my favorite. We had a coupon for free salad bar, which was quite extensive and very good. 3 bottles of water and 4 margaritas. Tax... More

What was good? The service, but that was all. Very expensive for quality of food. 170 pesos for a small margarita is a bit steep. We were a party of 5, all meals arrived just warm to cold. Everything over cooked...shrimp and steak. Best part of my meal was the small salad bar. Should have stopped there. Would not recommend,... More

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!
