Maybe it depended on what you got but my tortilla soup and Caesar salad were subpar and overpriced. At our table we also had a scallop with hollandaise dish, chicken fajitas, and chicken parmesan. I don't think any of us thought it was great. Seems like a good place to hang out for drinks, though, and our wait staff were... More

The food and service were great! I was there later in the evening and had a table directly on the beach. The food (Seabass) was amazing and an incredible value. The service was top notch and friendly.

We ordered a shrimp Cocktail, there were six small shrimp and some pink water and ice at the bottom with a couple slices of avacoto. The sauce was ketchup! For $ 12.00 US!! What a rip off ! Waiter was not friendly at all! I would never go back!

Very mediocre food at higher prices. Cold potato with the lobster/fillet meal. Someone at our hotel recommended it... Sorry we listened. Manager never came to the table when we requested him to give our feedback. Don't waste your pesos.

We went to the blue shrimp for dinner and the food was excellent. It was my birthday and they brought out cake with a sparkler on it. The prices were good and has seating for large groups.

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!
