Great little restaurant in the romantic zone of Puerto Vallarta. I love the decor and colours. All typical Mexican dishes available, prices are really good for the location and the food is delicious! I highly recommend their churros! Staff is always friendly and efficient. Thank...you!More

We enjoyed an outdoor lunch that was simply delicious! We shared fried marlin quesadilla (very unique!), fish tacos, flan, and churros. Our server, Ruben, was excellent! We had a lovely chat about living in PV, food, and culture. Highly recommend!More

Poblanos was a favorite of mine when coming to PV. So it’s been 16 months since I was here last because of the Covid. But I’m back in PV and was ready to have a great lunch. First, what I didn’t like. With the speed,...or the lack of, that we received it was like they didn’t care that we were there. Everything was in slow motion. We walked in and there were two people sitting at two tables so it wasn’t busy. We stood inside the door for two minutes or more before we were acknowledged and seated. We were given a menu and we ordered tea. Nearly 10 minutes went by and finally our server came with the tea. We asked for the lunch menu and several minutes went by before he returned with the menu. Then we sat and drank tea while waiting for server to return. Ten minutes went by and he finally came by to get our order. By the time the food came I was nearly out of tea and I asked for more. Hint: they don’t do free refills...they charge for each glass ordered. We ate the entire meal and nobody came by to ask if everything was ok or if we needed anything else. We looked at empty plates for several minutes until someone came to pick them up. So we asked for our check at that time. Again, it was a long time before he returned with check. We just couldn’t believe how slow the service was when it wasn’t even busy. I gave 3 stars instead of 1 star because the food was good. No complaints there. I may give it another try in a few days, because of the food, to see if it was just a slow employee or if it is the way it’s being run. The food is good but if we get service like this again Poblanos may loose a good customer. In the past I use to give them a lot of praise.More

Great location and ambiance. My girlfriend ordered pasta with shrimp the sauce was the perfect mixture of creamy and spicy. Eric and Chewy enhanced the experience with their great suggestions and excellent service. I can’t wait to come back again!

Poblanos is a great place. I love the brightly colored atmosphere. It is airy and very comfortable. I have eaten dinner there and went for brunch as well. For dinner I have had chicken fajitas, chicken enchiladas and a chile relleno. For brunch I had...an omelette with spinach, mushrooms and cheese. All are excellent. My favorite drink is the house Poblano margarita which has a nice, spicy kick to it. The waiters are all so helpful and friendly- Erick and Chuy are a great team at night. They are always so welcoming and ready to serve. Ivan always has a smile at brunch. Poblanos deserves a great review (and the prices are very reasonable!).More

We have traveled to this area for 30 years with many fond memories of amazing meals from restaurants in Zona Romanitca and Old Town. This place is our new favorite! Echoing previous reviews, the service is impeccable. Our visits were deftly handled by the charming,...personable and proficient team of Erick and Choy. These two gentlemen make the experience fantastic in every way. Follow that with the culinary quality coming from the kitchen here and you will realize right away this is not your typical ZR fare. The young and incredibly talented Chef has earned my sincere respect and appreciation. I am told he has a Chef Father and, if so, it appears it is in his blood. Sauces were perfect; I asked for mine a bit spicier then the norm and they didn't disappoint. His take on simple dishes was impressive. I will compare all Enchiladas to his from now on. The namesake Poblano dishes are also amazing. This Chef is reason enough to try this place. Cocktails were well crafted too! Now factor the nice ambiance, great location and inviting decor and I know this place will succeed. After raving about one of our meals there and stating that I was too full for desert, a neighboring diner (Gene Thanks!) was kind enough to send us some of the signature Churros by surprise. Since I was raised not to refuse a kind gift I felt obliged to eat them! ;) Please leave room for desert when you visit because you will want to enjoy this decadent treat before you leave. We did not have Breakfast or Lunch but have no doubt they do this with great attention to detail. Since our annual lodging is just a few steps from this location I hope to visit again and again over many years to come. Happy to know Poblanos is there and have no doubt I will have to wait in a long line the next time I visit.More
