Whenever I want a tasty bite and don't want to cook I have a drop in home away from home...Marin's place is the answer! DELICIOUS, simple and NEVER disappoints. I feel comfortable as a single woman dining any time of the afternoon or evening.

Love eating here! The best and freshest in Vallarta. Lobster most days. The breaded conch is the best! To bad they close at 7pm.

My favourite restaurant in Puerto Vallarta! I loved the grilled octopus. Super tender and lots of it. Not great for large groups. Limited seating.

This is a bit off the beaten path, but well worth the search. It is a small, local family owned business where the servings are generous (order a half portion if you're not too hungry). Our favorite - grilled, breaded parrot fish. Ask what is...More
