I was hoping we could help put together a list of the Resturants in PV that are currently a good deal. I see the stuff for Mita, but a PV list would be helpfull.

I would recommend

Fajita Banana - Nuevo Vallarta

Raccon Taco Place close to Candy's

Pipi's - downtown PV

The Happy Lobster- downtown PV South

PV Marina???

Anyplace else that is good now?

BARCELONA: tapas style great food, owner Bill Carbalo is from Chicago, been open about 6yrs and has a great following. Awesome Paella and the pitcher of sangria kicks ass. 2 blocks up off the malecon above where the mcdonalds is. also "el Brujo" right past the small tunnel going into town, excellent mexican food and good price, usually a line as it's small but very popular due to the great food

My wife and I really enjoyed Victors Place in Marina Vallarta. If you go in the evening, Vistor is there and he will take a shot of tequila with you when you order drinks. I also took the dorado I caught and they grilled it up 3 different ways for us. Their fish tacos were pretty good and actually had a big chunk of fish in it, unlike the fish tacos in the states.

Is it Pipi's or Pepe's? ( the taco restaurant downtown ).

Awesome tacos, just ask Vince #19.

Drew recommends going for the A/C which makes the dining room so cold in August that you need to sit right next to the grill in the kitchen to stay warm!!

There's Pipi's and Pepe's and they're both good. Pipi's is sitdown mex food...Pepe's is street tacos. Go with the Pastor.

Vito's in Punta Mita is great Italian but a little pricey. We all know Margarita's is solid.

Frascati in La Cruz is also good Italian for a reasonable price.

Mark's in Bucerias is top notch as well

There used to be a great little resturant up in the residential area called 'La Placita'. Ask for a roof top table. Lots of ex-pats eat there.

Save your money. Just bring your fish to Brant, he is the best cook in PV anyways!!
But he sold his BBQ!! And I heard he had to throw in Redneck to close the deal.

Brazil in the Paradise Village mall is good if you're really hungry.

I hear the Brazil downtown is even better.

We stick to:

Brazil
Fajita Republic
Margaritas

On most trips.

none, paying for everyone elses boat, 1 trip at a time.
I like Meson Bay in Bucerias....Last time I was there they had an all you can eat barbecue for something like $13 USD...Included T-bones, and New York Strip.....Also, they make a real good marquirita.....

Another favorite is Mauricios....They are between PV and Nuevo Vallarta, opposite side of the main road from the airport. Closes early (maybe 7:00PM) and a place where most customers are locals. Excellent seafood and prices are very reasonable. Complimentary tequila after dinner....Strike up a conversation with the waiter, flash a "nice" propina and the "free" tequila keeps coming!!!!!!!

Going down on the 20th for 2 weeks and will definitely check these 2 out and more of the suggestions others have made.

Of course, hoping for grilled tuna land tuna sashimi as well, but got to catch one first!!!!!!!

This is one of the best places for a taco in town. Open late in the afternoon and only Jeff would know how late they stay open.. LOL

David (zig zag) took me up town one night to a great seafood place but my bet is that you would need a taxi to find it again!

Lots of good eating down there.
