We have been coming to this restaurant in Nuevo Vallarta for many years and they never fail to please. Great food and attentive service year after year at reasonable prices. The restaurant is situated on a river bank with indoor and outdoor seating.

Couldn’t have enjoyed our dinner any more. The lasagna was amazing. The steak (ribeye) was delicious. The service was impeccable. We will for sure be back.
