If you want a unique, fun and authentic Mexican experience, I recommend visiting Cuale Paradise. This off-the-beaten-path restaurant is one-of-a-kind and is sure to take your breath away. When going to Cuale Paradise, you might think you're stepping back into the Puerto Vallarta hoods. And, you might be doing so. However, where you're really going is to a restaurant that... More

The Cuale Paradise is a beautiful restaurant located right on the Cuale River in Paso Ancho. The setting is breathtaking and the food is excellent. Reservations are recommended.

Such a lovely spot for stream side eating--right on an island if you want. Service is very friendly, with the kids pitching in on occasion too, and food is good.

This was our first time at the Cuale Paradise and will not be our last, we had an amazing meal, and our server was a young man named Israel, he informed us that he has only been a waiter for a very short time, he was amazing, very attentive to us. he is a great waiter.

Been to Vallarta many times and finally made it to "Paradise" 1/16. Very relaxing setting, good service and good food. I recommend that you go around dusk so that you can enjoy both the day and night time vibes of this cool place. Did I mention good margaritas?

My husband happened on this jewel on one of his walks in Puerto Vallarta. After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to make a reservation for dinner tonight. What a spectacular evening!! This restaurant is situated in an out of the way spot on the River Cuale. We were led to a table right by the river. The river... More

Beautiful cascading riverside setting, delightful food, great family service. Revisited after 12 years away from Puerto Vallarta and as perfect as my memory said. Ate twice here this trip including dinner with vegetarians - Cuale Paradise conjured up some magical food to meet their tastes!! Will certainly revisit next time we are in Puerto Vallarta.

We went to this exotic river restaurant and had the most wonderful meal and service. It was the highlight of out trip to Puerto Vallarta. The family that owns it all participated down to the tiniest girl who gave out soft blankets if you got chilly. Coconut auctioneers excellent...everyone in our party enjoyed their meals.

Wonderful, friendly staff. Had a stuffed shrimp, wrapped in bacon dish, to DIE for. Friends had coconut shrimp and filet, Mexican style that they liked as much. Home-made tortilla chips,done perfectly! And the best thing about this place is the location, on the river. Very relaxing to hear the rushing water while enjoying a margarita. A unique, satisfying experience for... More

We came for dinner when it was dark and the river was rushing and the lights twinkling. Greeted with a sunrise shot and shown to our table by the river Red snapper whole fish with a spicy sauce beautifully cooked.
