we were definitely disappointed, food not cooked properly, poor service, strange decoration .. we even felt uncomfortable about the whole situation ... weird experience, we live in Puerto Vallarta and love to try new place -- we wont recommend this one!

Wide variety of lots of dishes, incredible selection. All very reasonably priced, and such unique selections. You can get tapas, or mexican, or traditional, even breakfast. The 7 course molecular gastronomy menu sounds fun. The pink mole is amazing.
