We live coming here. A little out or the way but we'll worth it. We can't me here at least 3 times each visit.

Interesting surroundings, a true Mexican experience. The staff was friendly and quickly dealt with my wife's undercooked dish. We felt the food as a whole was not outstanding, just ok. The margaritas were Fine.

Our return to El Brujo was as good as the last. The food was prepared just right. One wouldn't expect it because of the location, but the Sea Food Soup is the best.

All aspect of our two visits to this restaurant were excellent - polite quick service and tasty food. All four of us enjoyed our meal. In fact it is the favorite restaurant of one of the people in our party that has been coming to Puerto Vallarta for many years.

This is a place you must go to. The only change year to year is they keep enlarging it. Even so reservations are recommended especially on the weekend. Our group of 6 all decided on fajitas which are excellent. Choice of shrimp, beef, chicken or mixed, but they have many other items to choose from. Salsa and chips are provided... More

I ordered an item and told them I didn't want any part of the wholly trinity (the food ingredients not the big group). The chef came out and explained that was the base for all their cooking. I ordered another item and he came out again. Always very polite and trying to get me what I wanted. He tried so... More
