This restaurant is right around the corner from a much more expensive place that had come highly recommended to us but which ended up being rather disappointing. We spotted El Buen Gusto as we were leaving the other place, and BOY are we glad we did! This was our favourite new discovery of the 2017 trip to Vallarta. Breakfast and... More

Excellent food, great prices. It makes me hungry just thinking of the wonderful meals I ate here. Great daily specials. Looking forward to going back for more.

I've been eating here for ten years and the food is always tasty and well prepared. Good barbequed ribs.

This is a great little family run restaurant and it's where we had one of our best meals in the Romantic Zone! It's in a great location just a block from the beach. Went with a group of 6 people and everyone really enjoyed their dinner. A super friendly family owns and staffs the restaurant. It's Great - Go There!!

I was treated to a surprise birthday dinner at this wonderful little family run Mexican restaurant last week. There were 13 of us, and I am pretty sure I can vouch for all, that everyone enjoyed the evening. The staff went over and beyond expectations, offering additional features on the house. The only draw back, was the service was a... More

We went back several times during our stay. We never saw such a good breakfast for so little during our stay. It is family run, and always servfed with a smile. We tried it for supper one night as well. Real family mexican food, at super price.

We love this place for breakfast. For 59 pesos one can get a fresh fruit plate, 2 eggs any style, with ham, bacon, or chorizo, toast, hash browns, refried beans, and coffee. The food is cooked to perfection. Service is great. Despite what Trip Advisor states, it is open every day for breakfast.

Been eating here 3 years now, very typical breakfast at a very economical price and only steps from Olas Atlas (really, maybe 20 at the most ). Breakfast this year has gone up a notch with very good homemade bread and cinnamon in the coffee. Never have eaten lunch or dinner here, but will now try since that menu looked... More

We have been here many times mostly for lunch but also for dinner. It is a small family run Mexican restaurant, with no airs or graces, but is very appealing due to its good food and pricing. The service is not fast, but who really cares, there is no rush and it gives one more time to chat and people... More
