This Dining List for Puerto Vallarta Should Be Savored…

Fine Dining In and Around Puerto – We are often asked for recommendations for dinner (and breakfast and lunch) and there are many great restaurants to choose from in Puerto Vallarta; it’s hard to pin down our favorite. Tre Piatti is high on the list of best places to eat in Puerto Vallarta. Chefs eat here. The food gets constant raves for quality and imagination. They change their menu with fresh and exciting items every two weeks. The kitchen at Tre Piatti shops and supports locally, so your produce is in season and picked at the peak. Dishes at Tre Piatti are eye-catching, innovative and delicious. The service is excellent; they treat every customer as if they’ve come home to dinner. The wait staff are gracious, and don’t be surprised if the chef welcomes you himself and gives you a big hug when it’s time to say goodnight. 
We love Vista Grill/El Dorado at Los Muertos beach. The names switch up for lunch or dinner but the food is always exceptional. Evenings at this location are breathtaking and it’s a great place to show off to guests, with the pier as a stunning foreground to jaw dropping sunsets. The service here is one of the best in Puerto Vallarta.  For a change of scenery, we love the Marina. An evening stroll to view who’s in port, admire the fancy gorgeous yachts and maybe spy a crocodile. We dine at Tintoque and slip into an environment so similar to Mexico City, you might be there. The menu changes here, too so expect surprises with each visit. We do love the inventiveness. Accents on flavor and fresh décor, they offer four to five specials daily. It’s a tough choice to make, so you know you’ll return again and again.  
Go a bit further north and you’ll find the best restaurants within a several hundred kilometer range. There is nothing close to this quality or service unless you go to Mexico City. The Spice Market, a Jean Georges Vongericthen restaurant at the W Hotel isn’t simply dining out. It’s a lifetime experience, one that you’ll want to repeat as often as possible. The stickler is you must be a guest of the W Hotel to make a reservation. You can patronize this fine establishment as the guest of a guest or find yourself a good connection, but we do recommend making the effort. The other is Carolina’s at the St. Regis, and the same goes for privacy factor. This is haute cuisine and you can’t really find anything comparable within the confines of Puerto Vallarta.
