Restaurants in Puerto Vallarta

When visiting Puerto Vallarta, it is hard to decide sometimes on which restaurants to dine at and whether it should be lunch or dinner. Where to eat out for breakfast, also seems to be a big question. When checking the Puerto Vallarta online tourist pages, and references it sometimes gets to be too much, after all Puerto Vallarta has more than 500 restaurants. Best Puerto Vallarta Tours has compiled a list of some of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. Below each restaurant is a link shortened with bit.ly to take you to the Trip Advisor page for each restaurant!

It has been featured by the Sony Channel as one of the most beautiful spots in Latin America, and was named “The Most Beautiful Restaurant in Mexico” by Mexicana Airlines in 2006. Best Puerto Vallarta Tours always makes a point to stop at Le Kliff on the way back from the tour to the Botanical Gardens, Mayto, or El Tuito. The desserts are heavenly, the drinks great, the view – WOW, and the food wonderful! Make sure to try the Tropical Salad and the Passion Fruit Creme Brule. http://bit.ly/gqONt9 (Trip Advisor link)


**While getting the Trip Advisor links, I read most of the comments for each restaurant on the list. The one thing for Le Kliff I didn’t think to add was; This is not an appropriate setting for families with small children, if you take small children to Le Kliff keep them next to you, the cliff it sits on is extremely high.
