Visited the Sea Monkey in mid March for happy hour. Located on the Malecon our table was right on the sand. Beautiful view of the water. Drink prices were reasonable. Unfortunately we were constantly approached by folks selling their wares on the beach but this is a constant in much of Mexico. We ended up purchasing a couple of blankets... More

My husband and I both love Sea Monkey and their sister bar Cheeky Monkey. They both have $1 beers and $1 margaritas plus a great selection of other drinks. Sea Monkey provides seating right on the water which is gorgeous!

Obviously, the location is fantastic.I don't remember specifically what we had to eat because in three weeks in Puerto Vallarta we ate at a goodly number of restaurants, but it was good because we entertained the idea of going again.

We went here with some expectations as Sea Monkey is rated more than 4 on Trip, and also a Fodor's choice restaurant. Yeah, the view is nice but.... The fish taco was all flour and breading, little flavor and little fish. Even the hot sauce didn't perk it up. The pepper and onion enchilada was edible but had no flair.... More

Walking along beach and stopped in for light bite. Sangria tastes like grape juice so skip that, but my fish taco with cold slaw was good. Great location on the boardwalk and beach. Fun people watching and listening to music.

I recently returned from a cruise to the Mexican Riviera with my family and one of the stops was in beautiful Puerto Vallarta. We spent a lovely day walking along the beach and doing some shopping. When we got hungry for some food and WiFi and thirsty for a yummy drink we stopped at the Sea Monkey and we were... More

I stay above the Sea Monkey at the Vista Del Sol which means I ate and drank there many times over the years as well as their sister restaurant , the Cheeky Monkey on the malicon. O.K., granted the food isn't gourmet but I never had a bad meal there. I find the waiters courteous and pleasant to chat with.... More

If you are looking for a good breakfast, this is the place to go. They have great omelettes, and the price conversions are on the menu... Bathrooms are very clean, and the water is good. Staff will even do a little dance during service....if you ask!

Stopped by cause wifey needed to pee, so ordered a jumbo beer-garita, a tequila sunrise and guacamole and salsa. All three were good, though a tad over priced. Service was good. No complaints. Not sure it's the type of place I would want to go for dinner, or even lunch, but good for a beer and guac... what can I... More
