My husband and I used to love Mauricios years ago and went back. First trip 28 huge shrimp, next trip about 20. This time I ordered combo 4, coconut shrimp was all bread and coconut with skinny shrimp inside. Lobster hardly amounted to a couple of tablespoons, overcooked, dry and in many shells. Fish was good. My husband had the... More

Was a regular yearly patron for the last 15 years but NO MORE! Service is now very poor, almost non-existent! Prices are higher than other comparable restaurants of this ilk (providing you can read them on the menu - lots are smudged or non-existent)!

We always make it a point to go there. The food is always very good, served hot. They can,t seem to do enough for you. The service is professional and fast. We are looking forward to a return visit or two ,or three this winter.

This is an excellent Mexican folk restaurant offering mainly fish food. All dishes are extra-size and good tasting. Waitress and waiters are, as all serving people in Mexico, really outstanding and highly specialized; they fulfilled all our requirements. Enjoy this restaurant and share your experience.

It's a bit out of the way, but the taxi driver knew right where it was, It's well known apparently, on the outskirts of Vallarta. The food is very and tasty and well served. I can't wait to go again!

Great restaurant, with authentic Mexican style, including live chickens pecking through the restaurant! Great food, great value. I go at least 2 times during any trip.
