Second time here, amazing location. Good food, excellent service, but a completely unique experience. Driving through this little village looks sketchy, but once you get there you see why they call it paradise. Romantic and beautiful!

We went here for my wife's birthday last month. It was raining and during the slow season. We were the only ones there at this time. The staff was amazing and greeted us with a smile and small glass of rum punch. We were initially seated under cover while it rained, but as soon as the rain stopped they moved... More

The food was fabulous as well as the drinks. This is off the beaten path, but so worth it. As you can see by the pictures it is out doors, though there is some covered tables. This is a family run business and all including the kids work. Just a wonderful experience, sitting by the river for dinner. - Interesting... More

We had the extreme pleasure of eating dinner at the beautiful Cuale Paradise Restaurant which is nestled on the shore of the Cuale River. It was such a beautiful setting! With all the rain in Puerto Vallarta this summer, the river was flowing heavily and we could hear the sound of the cicadas which just added to the ambiance. Our... More

This restaurant is a must see. We went at night and the lighting and the water made a great combination for a great and different experience, how many times do you get to eat in a table surrounded by natural rocks and running water! The food was great and service super attentive. On the way there is hard to imagine... More

We absolutely loved our dining experience here! Quite possibly the best meal I've had during multiple trips to PV. The location is beautiful, with seats right in the river. Definitely recommend, and will return in the future. My wife had the fish tacos, I had the Mahi Mahi, and we split the calamri fritos. Devine!

We made a reservation for 13 online. When we arrived we found that we were the only party for the evening. The chef was making pico de gallo as we passed by and taken to our table on the river. The view was absolutely beautiful and the service was stellar. The food took a bit but we were in a... More

Not easy to find. Taxi Driver had never heard of the restaurant. He radioed in and asked several other drivers for assistance - even though I had given him the address. Family was skeptical about the area we were driving through in our search to get there. Once we arrived, all that was forgotten. The setting was so beautiful. The... More
