This is a boutique restaurant with an artist-owner. We have planned at least one meal there every year when vacationing in Nuevo Vallarta and are never disappointed. Tasty, slow food and a nice quiet spot overlooking boat slips on the marina.

My wife and I ate dinner there twice had the coconut shrimp and the red snapper. Food preparation and service was excellent. The chef served our meals and prepared the red snapper on the grill, it is a beautiful setting and we look forward to going back on our next trip.

We found this great place and had breakfast here, on the last day of our trip. The burritos were excellent, and the French toast was unique and delicious. I think our meal for two of us was $12. We will definitely go back to this place! Didn't try lunch or dinner, but can only imagine it's delicious as well.

This is our second year spending the winter in Nuevo Vallarta and Carmen is still here providing great service with her wonderful smile and personality- a delight that she is still there. The food never disappoints. We go for dinner, but be aware that they are not open everyday. Mon, Wed and Thurs for dinner only, but breakfast and lunch... More

The location is stunning having a view of the Marina. We had a little art exhibition on front which made it all the better. We were there for a breakfast and had the pan frances and burrita mexicana. The pan frances was nice and the burrita average. However for a simple piece of bread with egg and a tortilla with... More

We had brunch here, wonderful outdoor seating right on the harbor. Dinner reservations fill up early in the day. Great food. They call themselves a "slow food restaurant" and they are right. Take your time and enjoy the meal. The service was good, but very slow.
