Not only do you get a good view of the beach and ocean, but you are elevated to avoid the hussle and bussle. Four of us went here for dinner and were promptly greeted and seated. The atmosphere was active, but still casual. We ordered drinks, but were never told it was happy hour and we forgot from priro visits.... More

We started with an great Caesar salad & scrumptious chicken livers with risotto. The livers were so tender, and the sauce and risotto amazing. Then had their speciality weinersnitzle, and hubby had fish... More

I had the Giant Shrimp Rissoto and my wife the Steak Diane. The steak dish was so large my wife took half home. I was pleasantly surprised at how many giant shrimp (6).... More

Another great restaurant in Puerto Vallarta. Coco Tropical is located on the Malicon in Old Town. The food is great and each meal leaving the kitchen is inspected by the owner, who is a stickler for perfection. Happy hour, between 5:00 and 6:29 is the time for their topas menu (about $7.00 US) and 2 for 1 drinks. My favorite... More

Two of us went to Coco Tropical for the Saturday night Steak Specials. We sat at a table next to the Malecon to enjoy the wonderful sunset -- it stays light until 8:30 pm. I had the pepper steak and it was good -- I ordered it medium and it was delivered on the rare side of medium, which is... More

We went here with six friends who have eaten here many times and now I know why. First the view is spectacular overlooking the Bay of Banderius. Our server couldn't have been more engaging. He was professional yet fun to talk to. The food was high quality and what you could find in a major North American high end restaurant.... More

Gracious service and good food. Owner sends his staff to train in Switzerland. Super crowded for Happy Hour, and on the weeknight when they serve Veal Shank. Good Coconut Shrimp.
