We first arrived at this restaurant at night and the place was amazing. We had a stream running right next to our feet by our table. It was lit up so beautiful at night surrounded by huge mountain terrain. Food was excellent and service was great.

Our dinner at Cuale Paradise was simply fantastic!! It's a totally out of the way and unique dining experience in every way. This was our second visit and we highly recommend it! The Shrimp Fiesta platter and seafood platter was wonderful Great wait staff that went out of their way to be friendly, inviting & courteous!

This was my second time to Cuale Paradise over last two years. Beautiful location and hospitality as everyone has said. Great salad and onion soup (to die for!). Unfortunately, didn't have a very good meal though. Ordered the Marlin enchiladas, along with my sister. Both of us were disappointed with the taste (fishy). Also, my father's beef machaca was tasty,... More

First of all, it is literally on the river. While other wonderful Isla dining is available in Puerto Vallarta, this is the only one that you can eat on a tiny island in the middle of the river. We ate there tonight, and I'm writing this because usually places that have such magical locations aren't all that good. This place... More

We have been going to Cuale Paradise for years, we always bring friends for a special evening. Not on the menu is a "Shrimp Platter" for two people, if you ask they will make it special for you. Reservations are recommended so you can get a table next to the river.

One of the most beautiful places to go out for a lunch, just rustic and beautiful, right on the river, like I said, is rustic, so I still dont understand why is gotten so expensive, some drinks and entrees are more expensive than Cafe des Artistes, the bathrooms need to be upgraded if they are charging 400 pesos for coconut...

We visited this quaint restaurant in Feb. 2016. This was our first visit, We were so pleased! Our waiter was Israel and although he was a new employee we could not tell. He was very charming and attentive. We visited in the early afternoon and it was so peaceful. We sat at the river's edge. We loved it and the... More

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
