We ate there a couple of days ago and were very impressed. The food is so authentic. Won't even recognize it as compared to Mexican restaurants at home. So much better here. We had Shrimp Burrito and Soft Crab taco....Yummy. Service is wonderful. Definitely going back.

I want to take a suitcase full of these home to show our local Mexican restaurants a GREAT new item. Well, I'd take some pulpo tostados, just about everything they make. My final meal before leaving, you guessed it- here. Sunday dinner had a 4 piece band and then a half block in front of the church, FRESH churros, a... More

Went for dinner after having stopped by on a food tour for a taco. Great family run restaurant with a good selection of seafood dishes. We both had shrimp dishes. The shrimp was on the smaller side but both dishes very good. If you like jalapeños there is a stuffed, grilled jalapeño wrapped and fried that is very good. 3... More

Read about the Chile Relleno Taco's and I had to try. They are made with jalapenos stuffed with seafood. I must say they were good and not too spicy. Also tried a seafood tostada which was good also. Service was good and the prices were inexpensive. They have a stand outside and a sit down area which is where we... More

I love to eat at this family run restaurant. During my 3 week vacation we ate there 7 times and twice took a carry out back to our time share hotel. Highlights are the trio of shrimp dish with garlic, breaded, and spicy shrimp with grilled vegetables and wonderful rice and garnishes. My husband loves the 3 home made salsas... More

Visited here on the Vallarta Eats tour. Could not choose from the entire menu but had a shrimp taco that was the best I've ever had. Homemade hot sauce was bomb too. Can't wait to go back and see the full menu.

The food is great the service was amazing and the price brings me back to a time in old town when good food was... More
