I'd heard so many great things about this restaurant and finally was able to go. We arrived fairly early, about 5:30, and had no problem getting seated. Service was great. I ordered the mixed fajitas and although it was a large portion with plenty of shrimp, chicken and beef, I was disappointed because the vegetables were very overcooked for my... More

This is a restaurant that I go to on every trip to PV. Absolutely love it. Start with a margaritas and their fresh salsa and taco chips. Wonderful! My favourite thing on the menu is Pablano Chicken, which is stuffed with mango. Make this a definite stop when you are in PV

The food here is to die for. Food prepared with fresh and high quality ingredients and produce.. and the quality of the portions are fairly huge. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who likes sea food.

We will be back here again SOON. One of our friends had arrachera steak, it was good in a tortilla shell! My other friend had shrimp... More

We were referred by a friend that lives near the neighborhood and have driven by this restaurant a dozen times. I truly never thought the food would be as delicious as it was. Out of 4 dishes, not one did we have any complaints. From the tacos with chicharrón de queso, coconut shrimp to the drunk arrachera; everything was perfect.... More

Recommended by our bartender at the Icon Vallarta, this restaurant has great seafood and service. Had the big shrimp and let the waiter pick the flavor choices - garlic butter, coconut and stuffed. Great choice. Wife had the flank steak - tender and tasty. Restaurant is clean and traditional. Prices are very reasonable. Get away from the tourist restaurants and... More

Established but somewhat difficult to find restaurant, El Bruno offers great authentic Mexican seafood and other interesting meals. I've been coming to PV for years and always visit this restaurant at least once during my visits. Definitely worth a try.

We went to El Brujo with a local who told us that this was one of his favorite place in PV. We go to the market right around the corner from here but never spotted El Brujo so we were excited for dinner. First off, the waiters were amazing. Our Spanish is limited so he immediately switched to English and... More
