Lovely place, clean and comfortable, not too large. Located upstairs on a half- covered roof. Excellent service, attentive and friendly. Food to die for, presented beautifully, cooked to perfection. ( I had filet mignon and s pear salad and mineral water) . Live music (Saturday...night). And the price was very reasonable. About $35 usd. Also, a very eclectic menu. I'll be back before I go home.More

Our son and girlfriend took us to this great restaurant. Wonderful food, wonderful service and great atmosphere. Restaurant is sparkling clean, nicely decorated and the service and food amazing. Rafael made our Caesar salad at the table. Entertaining and sooo good. For dessert he flambéed...bananas. Smelled amazing during the process and tasted equally as good. Rafael is an entertainer but even better server. He loves his work and you can tell. All staff were wonderful. There is live entertainment on the weekend. Hope to go back for that. Want a great evening on the town, go to OK Jose’s.More

Excellent experience from the time we entered the restaurant until we left. We started with a great glass of Mexican vino. We ordered a Caesar salad which was made at our table. This was truly one of the best Caesars we've had. Our mussels came...at the same time so they took them back to the kitchen to keep warm while we enjoyed our salad. When they brought out the mussels they were delicious and abundant. We finished our dinner with chocolate martinis. The music was perfect for a nice meal, the owner was social and checked to make sure everything was just perfect. I truly recommend this restaurant in Puerto Vallarta, it is not on the main streets but well worth the effort to find it. We'll definitely be back.More

This is a great restaurant but a little hard to find. It's one of the few places in Puerto Vallarta that you can order Chiles en Nogada, which is one of my wife's favorite Mexican dishes. The seafood Vera Cruz style is also delicious. The...only downside we encountered was that they weren't able to take credit at the time of our visit and we didn't find this out until we had already ordered drinks, but we had sufficient cash for the meal. Would recommend this place for nice meal off the Malecon.More
