I did not know what to expect until I reached this sort of Tiki Restaurant with Mexican/Asian Fusion cuisine. It was a Sunday and the music started at 2:00 p.m. with totally Professional Musicians from cruise ships and the movie entertainment fields. Everything is cooked to order in their open kitchen. Best fresh flaky chips I've eve seen. Interesting Hawaiian... More

Up in Playa Grande you'll find a retreat from the city in a wonderful outdoor setting along the river. With brightly colored tables and ferns and staghorns adorning the rafters, this restaurant serves the best Mexican-Asian fusion food for a price anyone can afford. The food is unique and all prepared on site. The owners, Kele and Kai, treat the... More

Although the drive took a bit longer than we expected, it was well worth doing in order to 'discover' Kelekai's. We had a super afternoon. The food and drinks were great. Loved the music. Such a pretty location!

Kelekai's is great for a late breakfast....we take our dune buggy up through Pitillal and just follow the river road. Kelekai's is a very unexpected oasis along the banks of the Pitillal River. Excellent margaritas.

Today my husband and I (Dennis and Doreen) picked up two of our friends in La Cruz; then 2 more in Vallarta, and we drove to Kelekai's Restaurant at Libertad #516, Playa Grande, alongside the Pitillal River. This is our second visit in the past few weeks. Both times we have enjoyed the atmosphere, and the food. Kele and Kai... More

My Mexican friends took me to this delightful garden spot for a peaceful open air meal in the jungle beside a river. Nestled in the mountains at the end of a dead end road, only minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city of Puerto Vallarta, it is quiet and peaceful here, the food is excellent, and the prices...

You must experience this one of a kind restaurant just off the beaten path, but minutes from Puerto Vallarta. Enjoy a wonderful meal right beside a gorgeous river in a jungle atmosphere. We went once and ended up going back many times. Wonderful owners. Thanks Manny & Greg. See you next year.

We were taken to this lovely restaurant after our horseback ride at Rancho el Charro. The atmosphere here is one of the best I've been to in Mexico and the food was perfect. The restaurant is in a lovely little Mexican village where they serve breakfast all day long, along with other delicious meals. It is so cozy with being... More
