Love eating here! The best and freshest in Vallarta. Lobster most days. The breaded conch is the best! To bad they close at 7pm.

All fresh, if they do no have it they were not able to buy that day. English speaking waitress. Family run. Great cabbage salad comes with the rice.

Went for lunch on New Year's Eve. Between three of us, we shared breaded shrimp and grilled parrot shrimp (pictured). We'd never heard of parrot fish before and loved it. The shrimp were breaded ever so lightly and had a delicious flavour. The food was excellent and service friendly.

My favourite restaurant in Puerto Vallarta! I loved the grilled octopus. Super tender and lots of it. Not great for large groups. Limited seating.

This is a bit off the beaten path, but well worth the search. It is a small, local family owned business where the servings are generous (order a half portion if you're not too hungry). Our favorite - grilled, breaded parrot fish. Ask what is the freshest and you can't go wrong.

We had heard of La Isla from friends and went hunting for it. It is off the beaten path. This family run place is small, not air conditioned but has great seafood. We started by sharing a shrimp cocktail. It looked like the ones from the Mexican restaurants in the States in the large goblet filled with tomato juice, cucumbers,... More

Just got back to PV for a quick vacation and had to go back to LA ISLA DE MARIN'S for another great meal. For the money , it can't be beat! Great fish and shrimp meals for 125 pesos.

This is small family-owned restaurant is open from Noon to 7 PM (closed on Sundays). They are located 4 blocks inland from the north end of the Malecon. Since they don't serve wine, they will allow you to bring your own bottle of wine to enjoy during dinner. The menu is limited to mainly seafood, and everything we have tried... More

If you don't mind passing through the kitchen on your way to the basic toilet , then this restaurant is for you. Pulpo a la plancha is perfect. Best combination of Mexican tastes. Pulpo salad is very tasty. Mostly populated by local people. Highly recommended.

Great small fish restaurant. Fresh fish, you need to ask "what is fresh for today." Big plate of fish, rice, cucumber salad and bread. Great value, great service.
