Check out if the "singer" is performing! Worst voice I have ever heard. Totally destroyed the evening. I would never ever have dinner at the Blue Shrimp again if he is the entertainment.

The Blue Shrimp is a great seafood restaurant situated on the waterfront at the end of the Malecon. The food is first class and the restaurant sports a salad bar, something I did not see in any other restaurant in the area. The price is relatively expensive for the area, but the quality of the food makes it worth the... More

Wouldn't miss out on eating here. The shrimp are firm, fresh and huge! Make sure to bring your big appetite. Service is excellent as are the prices. Evening music entertainment, plus a grand view of the beach, ocean and sunsets.

My husband and I stumbled upon this gem when walking around Puerto Vallarta. The margaritas and coconut shrimp are delicious. Service top notch! Beautiful setting on the beach and you can even enjoy the gorgeous sunsets while dining.

We ate here twice. The first time was for lunch. The crab tacos are amazing. Bruno was a delight. We went back another day for supper. The food was good and the staff is very friendly and attentive. The only downside that I experienced was the entertainment. There was a man singing to prerecorded backup music. Instead of signing the... More

Decided to dine here for my husbands birthday. We were very excited to try this place out after reading great reviews, however the food was flavorless! My husband order the parmesan chicken but the chicken was way over cooked and tough. I ordered the Fried red snapper which I was so excited to eat but was very disappointed! The fish... More

The Blue Shrimp by far is my favorite restaurant....My brother in law who has never been to Puerto Vallarta was celebrating a birthday and they made it so special... we had a beautiful place to watch the sunset, had a great dinner, and they brought out a piece of cake with a large candle on it for his birthday...Thank you...

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!
