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!!
PIPIS standing room only local gringos hang out.

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!!!!!!!

"the racoon place is called MAPACHIS....... that's where you go after Candies............ or Prestige or Hysteria........ best deal in town and open till 6:00 AM............ I think I ate some tacos there this morning"

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.

I have heard that El Coleguita in Ixtapa is great for seafood. Going to try it in November. They also have a new location in Marina Vallarta at Calle Popa, local 2A & 2B. Fajitas Bananas is always good and close to the boat docks.

Tacos and Beer. If you walk out of the SW corner of the PV marina and keep heading south 1 block you are there. Both tacos and beer are $1. The tacos pastor (marinated pork) are BOMB.

That's actually not that surprising...burrows don't really understand words...just the crack of the whip...you can't really claim that one...

Naw, gotta disagree with you on that one JT. With all my surf trips, catching long range boats there to Clipperton, and now fished a few days, I'm fairly comfortable down there.
But IMO, this list is nice for the new people who aren't so comfortable.
And it can still be spontaneous: walking along, see a restaraunt that on the list, say, I am hungry, BINGO!
I think it's a good thing, thanks to Jeff for starting the thread.

We're coming down for 12 days to entertain some guests, and I only knew of 2-3 resturants in PV that were any good to take them too.

So I'm so sorry that the idea of using experience between members to find some good spots goes against what you think is appropiate.
In other words, FU bitch. :fighting0061:

fyi manana and paolos both are no longer. hectors is always good in mita. cafe luna just up from the harbor is great for cheap breakfast and good real coffee. another great place to eat is The Oasis, on the road between Mita and Sayulita, good carne asada cooked over real wood fire. the salsa is epic, all tomatoes and peppers fire roasted for a real outdoor cookout flavor. 60 pesos for the meat plate with homemade tortillas, sausage and beans and rice. El Guero, the owner and waiter alwayshas some special appetizer for you too. Just look for the palapa about 1 mile from the turnoff to sayulita from mita. good eats and cold beer

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

I hear the Brazil downtown is even better.
Tried Brazils again after a few months in Paradise mall and was disapointed- even though is was barbequed, it was still vey greasy. Place was deserted all during the 12 days we were around.
