Solid Dinner spot in a great location downtown. Stick with the fish dishes (red snapper!) and you can't go wrong. I ventured out to try the scallop salad..they were covered in a pretty ambiguous and not appetizing black sauce. The woman at the table next to me got the same salad and we shared a questionable glance..next time I'll stick... More

In 2017, this restaurant had moved to Basilio Badillo. Richly flavored food. Popular spot! NO CREDIT CARDS.

The Shrimp Kevin was delicious. It was filled with several types of cheese that we had never had before.

My wife and I recently went to Polos for the 3rd time on this years trip to Puerto Vallarta. The staff is attentive and helpful. The food is still the best seafood South of the Rio Cuale at the best price. Do not miss this restaurant when in PV!

We went to Polo a few weeks ago. We had heard good things about the restaurant and looking forward to a good dinner. The tuna sashimi as an appetizer was decent but the rest of the meal was very disappointing. One of us had the mixed seafood plate which was well presented, but everything was dry, overcooked and tasteless. The... More

We have been there several times; each time we have been very happy. The seafood platter for two is an outstanding value!

We particularly enjoyed the fact that this is family owned and the owner personally visits eash table and his son is one of the servers. We HIGHLY recommend the grilled shrimp bacon/cheese skewers. The shrimp are larger than ANY we've EVER seen served in the US.

Having eaten here before we were looking forward to a great seafood dinner. It was not to be. The traditional fish filet was charred and dry. The rice was mushy. We had been warned by several people that the food was not what it used to be. We now know that they were right. Something is not the same in... More

I've been going to Polo for years in their old location. The food was always good, the prices always low, but it's location was somewhat hidden and not a restaurant you would find unless directed by an experienced friend. The new location on the Basilio Badio which is quickly turning into Vallarta's "hottest" street is probably four times the size... More
