Puerto Vallarta not only serves up heat on the beach, but also on the streets. From street tacos to savory brunch and even top-of-the-line cuisine, this place will take your taste buds on a wild ride.

Le Kliff

Overlooking Banderas Bay from an overhead cliff, the view from Le Kliff should be enough to make this restaurant one of the best in Puerto Vallarta. While many people rave about the ambiance and ocean views, the food here doesn’t disappoint, either. Le Kliff takes fine dining classics and adds creative touches that will surely impress your taste buds. With delicious hand-crafted cocktails and dinners combined with a breathtaking environment, you won’t want to miss this spot on your next Puerto Vallarta vacay.

La Leche

Here’s another spot where the ambiance alone will have you making your reservation ASAP. The restaurant features a monochromatic atmosphere that’s intended to elevate the flavor and presentation of the food. If you’re more of an adventure-seeker, this might be your spot because they don’t have a set menu. Each night features different gourmet dishes, but there’s nothing to be scared of because the chefs only use the finest ingredients in their delectable cuisine.

Fredy’s Tucan features breakfast classics with a Mexican twist to create savory dishes that will have you returning each morning. With friendly service and prices that won’t break the bank, you’ll be raving about Fredy’s even after you leave Mexico!

Barcelona Tapas

Consistently ranked as one of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta, Barcelona Tapas doesn’t disappoint. They take classic Latin dishes and pair them with delicious wine, while making it easy to enjoy your meal family-style. The stunning rooftop view overlooking Banderas Bay only makes the experience that much better.

Pancho’s Takos

For those looking for a more authentic dining experience, Pancho’s Takos will provide that and more. You’ll be greeted with a casual atmosphere and possibly a long line, but we promise the wait is worth it. This local spot’s claim to fame are the Tacos al Pastor, which have been claimed to be some of the best in all of Mexico. Whether you believe this to be true or not, you can enjoy your mouthwatering tacos with a cold beer or mango margarita, and you’ll be in foodie heaven.

With classic Mexican dishes and local ingredients, the food will exceed far beyond your expectations of a beachside shack. Whether you want to bring the fam and let the kids enjoy the sand, or you want a romantic dinner for two, La Palapa is a versatile spot that can fit everyone’s needs.
