No we never ate "Mexican" food this trip. But I would not call our meals "US style mostly" either.

There are amazing restaurants and chefs these days in Old Town Puerto Vallarta featuring all different kinds of cuisines. It's a unique blend using local fresh ingredients and various influences.

suze, I have to compromise on our destination. My girlfriend has been to PV, and other spots in Mexico, more times than she can count.

So it's fine with me to go someplace neither of us have been, like the Outer Banks or Florida Keys or. . . Nonstop flights are the limiting factor.

I too questioned myself Stewbear , upon reading restaurant raves in PV where all the kitchen menus reflect cheeseburgers, fries, take out fish sandwich, pizzas, club sandwiches and a platitude of fast foods galore.
Nothing here that reflects the fine Mexican cuisine associated with PV and it´s great restaurants...

Thanks, suze. It's fun to look!

PS. I get that your list above represents your most recent visit to PV, not your all-time best-ever wow restaurant list.
Is that correct?

Correct Tabernash2, I gave a list of current favorites & where my sister and I ate (or took food back to the apartment) in a recent one week trip to the beach. We didn't eat in the expensive high-end restaurant where they serve "fine Mexican cuisine". Quite honestly neither of us are real big fans of traditional Mexican food.

Traditional Mexican food is cheap, it's what you'll get at the Taco Stands and Cenadurias.

I know that JR.

But Rohelio was said: <the fine Mexican cuisine associated with PV and it´s great restaurants>

which i'm pretty sure isn't referring to a sidewalk taco stand.

suze, last time we were in Puerto Vallarta, we only ate Mexican food for dinner once during the entire week. I suppose we should feel ashamed.

shame on you tom42 ;-)

To me that's the BEAUTY of PV, something for everyone.

Next trip I guess Rohelio will be sending me some pesos so I can afford to eat at the high class joints instead!

OK here's the menus we chose at Anejo Limon (B. Badillo) one of Bruce's restaurants during restaurant week:

My sister:
Pear-Roquefort Salad
Chicken breast Schnitzel
Julia's Famous Lemon Tart

Me:
Ginger Carrot Shrimp Bisque
Korean-style barbecued Flank Steak
Pecan Tart and salt caramel ice cream

Every dish and every little detail of every dish was STELLAR (the buttered rye toast wedges at the side of the bisque, the roasted corn on the steak, the perfectly cooked and generously portioned carrots, green beans, potatoes).

Atmosphere and service were also top-notch.

It's a restaurant review, JR. Same thing I posted on Trip Advisor about a great meal we had. No I don't get a commission.

The dinner was really fabulous. Bruce is well-known around PV for his different restaurants and chef-ing skills.

Tastes in food is much like tastes in music. Personal and subjective. On one of my Spotify playlists, I have some Little Feat, Tommy James, and John Prine. I also have Marco Antonio Solis and Los Panchos, whom I enjoy as well. But not 24/7.

I ate at Bruce's Cuocco's for breakfast and it was great and the special was one of the cheapest breakfasts around (the other restaurants in the area). You really can never be disappointed in meals there from all accounts including my own. Suze, you must be getting commission from that review LOL!!
