We go here every year when we visit PV. This time I had red snapper fillet instead of whole snapper - both very good choices. The freshly made guacamole was excellent. My husband had the arrachera and said it was great. He said the tortilla soup was good but not as spicy as he would have liked. I would have... More

What a delightful authentic Mexican restaurant! It was just a few blocks from our hotel and was a wonderful discovery. It's been around since 1984 which certainly tells something about it! The service was excellent and there were so many choices. I had breaded red snapper and it was very light, not heavy, like some breading is. The entire meal... More

If you come from a place where fresh fish is unavailable or horribly expensive - you need to come to Rio Grande, get a seat outside and order the fish platter for two. Worth every penny and the service was extremely attentive. I would go a little earlier next time to ensure you get the best selection of the day.

I had asked a shopkeeper where was a good place to eat. This could not have been better. We were with another couple and got a table outside, and were able to watch the parade right if front of us on fat tuesday. The food was very good. Two of us had the Mexican platter which had a lot of... More

Whole red snapper cooked over a wood fire is as good as I've tasted anywhere and that includes the east and west coasts of the U.S.A. and Canada The servers are friendly and helpful

We walked by this restaurant a few times and couldn't take the wonderful smell, so we decided to make a point to have dinner one night. We had the seafood platter, which was incredible. Lots of food - 4 people could easily have enough food, but 2 of us tried! Great place!

Went here on a recommendation from a friend who spends a lot of time in Puerto Vallarta. It is not a very big place and not fancy at all. You could easily pass right by it without noticing. I am glad we stopped here!! The staff was all great and very helpful in assisting us in choosing from the menu!... More

We actually were looking for local art and Jorge met us along the sidewalk. We had a fabulous lunch and he invited us to come back for dinner to try the shared seafood platter. A couple next to our table were first time travelers to PVR and stated they have eaten there 3 times already. We were 4 adults and... More
