In past years we used to go for a great meal and drinks as we loved the atmosphere. However we went last night knowing that the original owners took back over and was hoping for another great dinner. That was not the case. Now the drinks were really good and the didn't skimp on the alcohol but at the end... More

Restaurant is only a couple of blocks away and we have always planned to visit. Finally got the chance earlier this year and we were disappointed. Average food and service and the restaurant décor could use an overhaul. Prices were way too much for value. Won't be back.

After reading all the reviews we decided to go to this place. It is a little out of the way but well worth the walk! You are greeted by the owner Jorge. A nice and pleasant person whom you will find out later on is so multi talented. The restaurant has several floors. We sat on the upper floor with... More

When we ascended the stairs to the third floor of Los Arbolitos, we couldn't believe the amazing view. Our table overlooked the the flowering trees along the river across the street. We could hear the water as it flowed out to sea. Jorge very graciously sat us and informed us we should try the best margaritas in town, so we... More

It's true - Los Arbolitos is reopened. Just as good as we remembered it - perhaps even better. A jem of a location with a view over the river and it's like you are miles out of the city. The food is amazing; the restaurant cozy and the service is even better than I remembered. Ask Jorge (the gentleman who... More

One of the nicest, most authentic restaurants in Puerto Vallarta is back and as great as ever. Excellent margaritas and carefully prepared food. After the untimely death of the original owner, a friend of the family has brought it back to life. A must visit!

I keep crossing my fingers that this historical restaurant will again be back to its Glory days. Unfortunately it is not happening and I am not sure it will survive. I have been going there for 27 years, and the original owner really had a thriving business. Unfortunately after he passed away things just fell apart. It is now in... More

Jorge was a perfect host. We felt like guests in his home. For dinner on a Thursday evening about 8pm we were his only dinner guests the entire night. Lucky for us. But this establishment should be packed! The gorgeous views, climb the spiral staircase to the top of the roof, the personal service, delicious food and the entertainment and... More
