Fodor's Review

Here you can glimpse the real Old Vallarta. A short but steep walk up from the malecón is this neighborhood dining room, which serves construction workers and locals. It's in a typical one-story Vallarta house of whitewashed brick with a red-tile roof and a burnished-cement floor. The lady of the house serves breakfast from 8 to 11 am and a limited later meal of two or three entrées, served between 1 and 5 pm. Choices like meatballs in tomato sauce, pork chops, or pig's

feet are usually accompanied by rice, beans, homemade salsa, and a basket of hot tortillas. There's no menu, and you'll need to communicate in basic Spanish.

Comedor de Sra. Heladia Review

This place might not look like much, but it is a diamond in the rough. I took my cousin that was visiting PV to eat there, and we ended up eating there every morning. The Chef is the waitress, the counter person, and the busser person. She made us plates that were traditional to MX. Ask for whatever you want and the Chef will make it for you, they also serve dinner, but a little too early for us, we like to eat late, but if can heatthe meal up

in your room then you might want to take advantage of it. Everything on the menu is not more than $45 pesos. You just cannot bit it.
