If you want to eat chewy over cooked shrimp, 10 dollar Canadian bar run booze and cold steamed vegetables and cold rice, this is the place to be.

We stumbled upon The Blue Shrimp as we were exploring Old Town PV by foot. I had the fish tacos (Baja style) - and they were fantastic. Cold beer, friendly service, and an interesting decor. Pretty good choice for lunch.

We ate at the Blue Shrimp twice, the first night we arrived and, because it was so good, the last night also. The shrimp dishes were very good, the Oysters Rockefeller were outstanding and the salad bar was a pleasant surprise. HUGE lobster tails available....More

I don't particularly remember a happy hour. Most places in Puerto Vallarta don't have a "happy hour" like in the US. They usually have 2 for 1's and mostly all day.

It's not far. A longish walk or short taxi ride. Taxis are cheap BUT agree on fare before you get in NOT after you arrive.

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!
