Ray's was special. This was actually the best meal that I had in Yelpa and frankly, of the entire trip which had 4 nights in Puerto Vallarta. The service and conversation was in addition to the great food.

Don't miss this place for dinner. At one point I had cut myself just before entering the restaurant. The owner/server treated me to a glass of mezcal to put on the wound. Service can't get much better than that.
