Description: The Blue Shrimp Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta is the best seafood restaurant in the area, long time established. Situated off Olas Altas Beach, on the ocean with spectacular daily view of the sunset, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant is a fun atmosphere with occasional live entertainment, under a large palapa roof and ‘boat-deck’ feel. Open for lunch and dinner, The Blue Shrimp Restaurant serves mouth-watering seafood and shrimp concoctions that you cannot find anywhere else! The restaurant is a great place to bring the family, celebrate a birthday, romantic dinner, or special event. Come sit down with us, right at the end of the Malecon and feel the breeze of the Banderas Bay, it’s Shrimply The Best!

We stopped in for lunch during our visit to the Boardwalk. There was no one eating there so we were a little skeptical, but it had A/C and we needed to cool off. This place was spectacular ! The staff was fun and attentive ! The food was amazing. My friend ordered Oysters Rockefeller, another friend ordered the days lunch special of Fajitas and I had the Shrimp tacos. We ordered tableside guacamole. It was all top notch. The prices are so reasonable for such good food. We are so glad we took a chance !!!

Juan, our waiter, greeted us with a fantastic special of gigantic shrimp in our choice of seasoning. To say everything was excellent would be an understatement. The Chicken Soup was fresh and vegetables firm. The shrimp were enormous and so flavorful. Not tough at all.

Drinks were excellent a well. A perfect lunch!

Located on the beach in Old Town, the Blue Shrimp offers exceptional service. Our waiter was attentive and charming and offered great conversation without being intrusive. The shrimps were fresh and succulent, the sauce choices proved to be outstanding. The Margarita was incredible!
My friend had the shrimp lasagna and thought it was delicious..
Thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary salad bar!
There is a glass walled dining alternative that we took advantage of as it was a hot night we were so grateful for the air conditioning.

We always thought Blue Shrimp was just a kitschy, tourist trap restaurant on the beach, but decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. Ambiance was excellent, service impeccable, and food was phenomenal. My husband had the shrimp lover's platter, with three choices of cook style, and the biggest shrimp I've seen in a restaurant. I had the best sea bass I have ever eaten, with excellent octopus and scallops. We were very pleased and are looking forward to going back next year.
