The food, though budget oriented, had no taste and the buffet very little variety. The advertising photo is totally misleading.

As one of few buffet restaurants in Puerto Vallarta, Josephino's is a good choice for people on a budget. The buffet for two with two soft drinks came to 250 MP (almost exactly $20 US). That's pretty hard to beat. The selection was varied, although the hot dishes weren't always as hot as I would like. The pizza on the... More

We had the buffet food & it had small flys inside the sneeze guard so we picked food that was outside any sort of shield. It was of lower quality. We settled for pizza mostly which was just average in taste. The service was good, however. Prices equal to what one would expect in North America. Clean bathrooms.

We hadn't been to Josephino's for quite some time so decided to try it again. We were quite disappointed. Only the salad bar is decent so, if salads are your thing, you may want to check it out. Most of the "hot" food (pizza, fried chicken, various pastas, several styles of potatoes) wasn't; yet the hard ice cream was melting... More

We live in PV and have eaten at Josephino's once. It was terrible! The selection wasn't great and nothing tasted good. Even my daughter who loves pastas and pizzas wouldn't take more than one bite of anything. Don't waste your money!

Living here full time, we are always looking for something a little different. It has been difficult to find a true Salad bar. We remember "Sizzlers" back in the States and we just could not find a good honest place for salads and more. Josephino's is our "go to" place when we want salad. Nothing fancy, (if you are a...

This is a very large venue specializing in pizza and chicken. The pizza is not always hot nor is the chicken, but both are tasty. The salad bar is quite good. I was surprised to find that their beets are not pickled. The help yourself ice cream offered is a welcome part of their dessert offering. One negative: The fountain... More
