So Ernesto's has been remodelled. It is almost spiffy. Thank goodness the tortilla soup is still delicious. The ribs are also very good but the soup is very filling so order accordingly.

A delightfully casual family restaurant with a good menu of very tasty Mexican food. The tortilla soup is excellent. The service is genuine, the kitchen staffed by women, the margaritas generous!
Just a delight to dine at with plenty of space and no crowded,closed in spaces. Enjoy this relaxed ambiance!

We have been to Ernesto's several times in the years we have been coming to PV. Known for its ribs and tortilla soup, we felt it has changed. We were told that Ernesto's daughter now owns it and it was she who waited on us. She could not have been less inviting or less friendly!! Just took our order and left. We were not asked if we would like another drink...my husband wanted another beer. The tip my husband left was small partly due to miscalculating the pesos but also because of marginal service. When were waiting for our cab, a waitress, not ours, came out to ask about the tip!!

The portion of ribs seemed smaller this time and was just okay. On the plus side, those who had the tortilla soup said it was amazing. They will package it up to take back to your condo/hotel.

There are so many wonderful restaurants here...we doubt Ernesto's will be one to which we return in future years.

These are the best ribs for the money. But the tortilla soup is the best in vallarta. Prices are good, food is great. Thursdays is all you can eat ribs. You'll need reservation for Thursday's all you can eat. We eat here once a week.

we have been here before and ensure we go at least once each time we are in PV. The tortilla soup is a meal so order a small or just make it your meal.

The ribs are very good.
