I went to Los Arbolitos for dinner yesterday and had the best "Chimichanga"... I did not know what it was, only heard about it on "Two and a half men" but thought it was a good idea to give it a shot... Wow... the best meal I have had in a long time! I recomend it if you like fried... More

My husband and I ate here Jan. 28, 2013. The restaurant was VERY difficult to find and completely out of the way. When we finally found it, which was a miracle we did because we went on a wild goose chase for 2 hr just trying to find the place, there were only a handful of people in the restaurant.... More

First, there is no possible way short of fraud that this place deserves its current #4 in PV ranking. Food is average at best. Service insufficient due to understaffing. We had the camarones arbolitos - 6 medium cooked tableside in a garlic cream sauce and served with white rice. Good enough taste but for the price how about some veges... More

I like nearly every place I go, so a less-than-positive review is unusual for me, but a campaign must have been organized - maybe by the restaurant - to move this place to the top of the TripAdvisor rankings, and that's not what you can expect here. Before it closed a year ago, it was very good Mexican food -... More

Check this place out. The new owner Marrissa is excited to keep the tradition up with having great food with great service. We were told the restaurant was closed when we first got to P.V. My husband and I couldn't believe it so we walked there to check it out. We are glad we did because its up and running... More

My husband and I have been traveling to Puerto Vallarta for 25 years. We heard about Los Arbolitos many years ago and decided to finally try it this past month.

Los Arbolitos has opened under new management and is better than ever! The charming restaurant on the third floor overlooks the Rio Cuale, and offers a perfect Mexican gourmet menu. We live in Puerto Vallarta and have been to many fine restaurants, and this one is no exception! I can't wait to go back.
