Breakfast Spot

“Fredy's restaurant is the top rated breakfast restaurant on TripAdvisor for a reason, it consistently delivers excellent breakfast experiences. Traditional Mexican and American breakfasts are on offer and neither will let you down. There's not a ton that stands out about Fredy's to me personally but it's likely super close to where you are staying and you can count on it to time and time again to leave you happy and fueled for the day ahead.”

“From barbeque ribs, chilaquiles or a Mexican platter, Cafe de Olla has it all. Cafe de olla is always a busy restaurant, especially during Vallarta's high season (December through April). Therefore, if you want to avoid a long line and a long wait time, try to arrive before 5:30pm or after 9:00pm (Cafe de Olla does not have reservations). Now, in terms of the best dishes at Cafe De Olla, here's a list of our favorites: - Barbeque Ribs (Costillitas a la barbeque - Mexican steak (Carne Asada) - Mexican platter: steak, stuffed chile, beans... a little bit of everything! (Combinacion plato mexicano) - Melted cheese (Queso Fundido) - Chilaquiles Our favorite drinks: - Mexican Coffee (Cafe de Olla) - Margaritas - Piña Colada ”

French Restaurant

“ Several sleek dining spaces make up Café des Artistes; , an original bistro style restaurant a few short blocks from Casa Bella Vista; the most beautiful and romantic is the courtyard garden with modern sculpture. The main restaurant achieves a contemporary Casablanca feel with glass raindrops and tranquil music. End the night at the clubby cigar bar or Constantini Wine Bar, which offers some 50 vintages by the glass as well as distilled spirits, appetizers, and live music most nights of the week.”

Spanish Restaurant

“Excellent all around restaurant with excellent views of downtown Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas. Spanish tapa style cuisine, I'm not going to list the individual dishes because they are all good! Try as many as you can, make a reservation at sunset and enjoy a bottle of wine with dinner. One of the best places to celebrate a special occasion in all of PV. Not cheap but not overpriced.”

“If weather permits, wait for an outside table on the patio. This is our favorite Italian restaurant and if you are dying for a good steak, ask for their New York steak. It is not on the menu and it is not a steak I would usually order, but theirs is outstanding. The pasta, fish and seafood dishes are all great. Casual. Good prices.”
