Great view of the Malecon from this 3rd floor restaurant. The staff is friendly and helpful, the ceviche is delicious, beer is cheap, and food is plentiful for the price. A great find!

Great view. Staff was attentive. My family enjoyed their meal. I wish I could tell you about mine but I can't remember what I ate. The margaritas are very strong here. My friend asked the bartender what he put in them. As I suspected, he said he topped them off with a little Everclear. I'm a big guy but I... More

Great view, friendly service, great food. It is on the 3rd floor above Murphy's Irish Pub. Could be a family dinner or a romantic one.

We stopped for a drink and ordered chips and guacamole. It took a little while but it was so worth it. It was fresh made and served warm in a motor.

We have dined at Viejo Vallarta's several times over the last few years and always find the food to be tasty and prepared well.

The shrimp quesadilla was very good as were the other dishes. Ice cold cervezas. An excellent place to watch sunset in PV. A mariachi band showed up to perform in the restaurant... More
