Value-wise, Mauricio's is great. The soup and ceviche (?) plate they provide right away is a nice touch. We selected the restaurant based on some old "inside Vallarta" info we found, and were expecting super high quality. Unfortunately, our expectations were not met. My wife had the "Maurico in Love" dish, which features lobster tails as well as shrimp and... More

We got cool with a local who took us here for lunch. The line was down the block with locals (a sign that the food was good). It was so hot out and the wait was about 45 minutes so they had servers come up and down the line giving out free cerviche and sol beer! When we got inside,... More

Mauricio´s is a good choice if you wth a group of ten or more and want to have very good local seafood plates. They have a very fast service but used to be much better or my expectations were too high this last time I was there. I think that they should invest a little more in their facility and... More

It's said "at the eyesight of the owner, the horse will feed". Mauricio, the owner is (most of the time) at the restaurant though. Prices have risen lately but no the consistency of the meals: some days you'll receive a good meal, and the next day you won't. Flavor and temperature at serving must be consistent.

Absolutely wonderful. This was very authentic, so much so that no-one spoke English and the menus are all in Spanish only. We were the only Gringos there all night. We dined at 13 restaurants the week we were there (mid May 2016) and this was by far the best! We ordered Coco Shrimp with pina (pineapple) sauce. It was delicious... More

It's delicious but not the fastest one to serve food. Not expensive at all, I really love their desserts and if it's your birthday they give you a lovely surprise.

Still enjoying Mauricio's after many years of great food and service! The first night wasn't busy...2nd, was on a Friday and it was packed! families, music and fun. BUT, the service was not as good, sad to say. They waiters were hustling the whole time, working hard.

We have been eating at Mauricio's for many years. Prices went up last year and now we see that they are putting back into the business. A new concrete floor and other improvements. We had shrimp for lunch and the meals were great. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly.
