We went to Viejo Vallarta for my sister's 30th birthday dinner. The owner (I forgot his name - sorry!) asked each of us what flavors we like and suggested certain meals based on our preferences. Everything was absolutely amazing! Plus, the staff went to the trouble of bringing out a candle on flan and singing happy birthday. They also poured... More

Found this place while strolling on the Malecon. Great views, even better service and fabulous food. We were a family of vegetarians, and ended up with plenty of selections. Their vegetable enchiladas were the best. Portion sizes were good. Ask for Salsa Mulata if you are looking to make food spicy.

I have taken friends to this great place to eat twice in the last month! I was lucky enough to spend October 31 here and view the Day of the Dead celebration overlooking the Malecon from 3 stories up. Not to mention the amazing sunsets. We had Mexican food each time and were never disappointed! It is a relaxing place... More

Fabulous dinner, fabulous location. Had the enchiladas suizas, chicken enchiladas with a creamy green sauce. One sits three flours up off the malecón and watches people and the ocean, with a beautiful breeze. And nightly, a ship comes through and there are fireworks. Lovely.

The view was fantastic from the third floor overlooking the Malecon. We were a party of six and everyone raved about their meals. The margaritas were very good and the beer was ice cold. The service was excellent and the staff was very attentive. Cash only so be prepared. The prices were very reasonable. I would highly recommend this restaurant... More

Grilled shrimp (they were GIANT though as indicated on the menu) with veggies & rice shrimp cocktail & 2-4-1 margaritas. Reasonably priced and much better than lunch at the hotel. Free wifi & people watching.

We stopped here for lunch. It's on the 3rd floor overlooking the Malecon. Very good Margarita and good service. Had one of the best chile rellanos I've ever eaten.

The restaurant has a really nice view but as it often is with places like this, the food isnt that exciting. Got guacamole and quesadillas, but the quesadillas had no taste at all. Nice people but wouldnt recommend eating there.

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!
