We have been coming to this area to vacation for over 10 years. We stay away from hectic Puerto Vallarta. We tend to stay in the area near La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. We had thought we had eaten at all of the better finer dining options in this area, until we came across Los Xitomates, and what a pleasant surprise! I heard that this restaurant/chief had been in Puerto Vallarta for several years, but decided to relocate out of PV....so this area’s gain, and PV’s loss. I think it is the second year in this location so still building up a following. The restaurant is in a hacienda on a hill surrounded by trees, flowers and birds...you can see the bay in the distance. You dine overlooking the pool (I think there are 8 apartments to rent). Hardest part was figuring out which drive way to take off the main highway....tip: driving from La Cruz, it is the first drIve way on the right immediately before the Xitomates sign...seems obvious as I typed this, but it was not at the time. Wonderful setting, very attentive service and excellent food. Xitomates is definitely on our “go to” list when we return to the area next year. I realize that most people want to dine near the bay, but Xitomates offers a unique alternative setting which we found very relaxing...which made the dinner all the more enjoyable.
