Delicious seafood served with additional items, starting with tequila shot, salsa and chips, fish broth, entrée, then dessert and Kahula drink. All included with meals and very reasonable prices. Well worth the visit to this restaurant.

Talk to lots of people that said the coconut shrimp was great however I found it extremely greasy. Hate to complain but not sure what all the hoopla is about. I think personally there's much better options in the marina

I love coming here each year because this restaurant has the ability to put more people in to less space than any restaurant around....and everyone loves it. This is a true soup-to-nuts seafood restaurant. When we sat down our waiter immediately put down salsa and chips and shortly thereafter set down a tequila bottle with small shot glasses for us...

None of the eight of us was able to order their first choice - "Sorry Senor that order is not available" My three choices were not available. Finally I wanted a shrimpburger after all they must have had one of those, and was... More

Having dined all over Vallarta, Bucerias and Sayulita, there is something really special about the seafood at this restaurant. I recommend the Mahi Mahi filet (unbelievable), covered in Ocotpus (pulpo) - literally the most tender and tasty Octopus I've ever eaten (if you've been disappointed before, try the Octopus here). You also get a delicious consomme to start, their homemade... More

My husband and I visited PV in January! We returned to El Colgeguita, since we have always enjoyed eating there! They offer a free shot of tequila, soup and complimentary dessert! The fish fillet was outstanding! We ordered a combo and asked for the coconut shrimp this time, which was overcooked, but everything else was terrific! On Thursday nights at... More

This restaurant is at the Marina. We were given a number for seating. Waited about 5 minutes. Tequila is available on the table. You pay for what you pour. We are not drinkers so ordered. We had Tostitos and fresh salsa. The salsa was delicious and lightly spiced. I ordered the daily special. Mahi Mahi with shrimp. I had coconut... More

We've been to the marina loction many times but on Jan 22 2017 the service wasn't as good and some in our group of 4 had stomach problems after the meal.

We had a novel idea about lunch time in the marina area-have lunch. There are an abundance of places to eat but only one seemed to have much activity. We noticed that many locals were eating there and that there were quite a number of young and clean staff so this might be the right place. When we were seated... More
