Chenan2 was a wonderful find in PV--we will be back. As noted in a previous review, the tortilla soup is special, and we found our entrees (seafood combination with garlic sauce and seafood on pasta) to be terrific--fresh, well-prepared, not too saucy. Everything was brilliantly spiced. This ranks among PV's best, especially for foodies who enjoy a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

Have been coming to Puerto Vallarta over 25 years- my wife had the pepper steak and I had the filit mignon - both were outstanding! Excellent service and reasonable price. JEC, Chapel Hill, NC

We frequent this lovely local restaurant many times during our 6 months living in PV. You can always count on great food and service. The family who owns and works there are warm, friendly people. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing. It is sad that our last visit there was disrupted by a group of men who were obnoxious, loud... More

I went on trip adviser, to write a glowing review, and came across the last review, and was shocked at what I found, the men at this table were out of line, and acting as children. They were slamming the glasses together, and were very load, making other guest uncomfortable, they should have charged them double for the glass. And... More

10-12 friends do "Boys Night" every Friday. We used to include Chenan2 four times a year. This Friday the owner Chenando charged one of us an extra 45 pesos ($2.50 US) for a cracked wine glass! One of the 'boys' used this glass all night and never noticed any crack; when he asked to see that glass, it was shown... More

I have eaten many times at Chenan2. With my family or with friends ever 6 to 8 weeks over the years. Food and service has always been very good. This time I went with a group of friends (weekly Boys Night Out). When my bill came I did not recognize a charge of 45 pesos. I asked the waiter and... More

I replayed your comment just to let our customers know that it was not an abuse of ours, if you are a costumer from a long time ago it's because you know the quality of our service, we made the charge because you recognized that you broke the glass and the charge of 45 pesos it's just symbolic, I think...

I selected this place based on its great reviews (well deserved) and the fact that it's not close to the beach. I wanted someplace where I could hear the conversation at the table. This place was perfect. It was not very busy (it was a Thursday), so we received lots of attention from the staff, all of whom spoke English.... More

We ended up at Chenan2 quite unexpectedly late in a day of exploring Vallarta. We were seriously under dressed but the staff made us feel as welcome as the other well dressed guests in the restaurant. It is a relaxing vibe with some cool pieces of art to finish the mood. We found it in an unassuming area of old... More

My husband and I went there last night. It is a small intimate restaurant with about 15 tables. Service was excellent. Nice and quiet background music, not for partyers. The food was delicious. l I had the special fish fillet which was red snapper topped with shrimp, along with rice and aspargus and green beans. To die for. My husband... More
