The restaurant is new to PV. It has upstairs, main floor and air-conditioned dining areas.

I had the cochinita pipal, pork roasted in an underground pit.
When the main meal arrived at my table my first was that I would go away hungry, but I was wrong. I am a good eater, but left about a third at the table.
They make a roasted pepper, hot pepper, cilantro, and pickled onion paste ( at the table) as an appetizer. It is served with a wonderful cream sauce, tomatillo sauce, picante sauce with crisp tortillas. All tasty and made the way you want by the server.

The cocineta pipal is served in a banana leaf with even more sauces. x-nipec salsa, made in house tortillas. You will not leave hungry. The restaurant is beautifully done, the food presentation is top rate.

For dessert I had a chocolate pudding with ice-cream and fresh raspberries. Again first rate presentation, rich and creamy.

Great staff, great chefs, great place to dine.

I'll be back.

Visited Meridagrill based on a recommendation from a local gift shop owner. She said try the duck tacos. Very nice restaurant. Service was prompt and food out of this world good. I did order the duck tacos. Tortillas are homemade and the tacos delicious. Freshly prepared salsa at your table and homemade tortilla chips. Prices very reasonable. I am going to return for a dinner visit my last night in PV. Easy to find if you are staying in the Romantica Zone, otherwise take taxi or Uber. Nice atmosphere.

Stumbled onto this place and fell in love with it. The food and service are just incredible. Margaritas are the bomb. It truly was amazing and a must do.

Truly one of the best meals we’ve had in PV ever. Very tasty, interesting Yucatán flavors, great attentive service and nice atmosphere. I had the Merida shrimp, hubby had the catch of the day. We traded bites and both were exceptional. Great interesting cocktails as well.

We walked by ad quick peeked at the menu of what looked like regular Vallarta tourist restaurant. Even if more expensive that the average restaurants in town, the menu seemed interesting so we decided to stay. Once inside we were amazed at the beauty of the space design, cozy, ample, colorful, this was not a regular restaurant.
We sat down and in addition to the delicious salsa that is made table-side, we ordered ceviche as appetizer and two entrees. The ceviche alone was amazing and left us almost fully satisfied. But then the entrees (duck/octopus) were so good that we almost licked the plates at the end.
We also got a wonderful attentive service that made us willing to come back the first nigh we are back in Puerto Vallarta.
