Every dish we tried was authentic and delicious. The owners are very passionate about what they do and it's very evident. It's a beautiful courtyard setting and the cocktails are excellent. Be sure to try the cricket tacos!

One of my all time favorite restaurants in Puerto Vallarta!! Their pork shank and Azteca soup are amazing! So good that we often go twice to this restaurant each visit.
