I had the muscles and though they were delicious. My husband had a fish special. We’ve been there before and will go back!

I went into this trap following good reviews from the Tripadvisor. I should have known better. There's no need to do a good job when serving tenants "for free". Restaurants from the all-inclusive resorts should be avoided. Hunting for the best food almost always require...departing from the tourist routes and major streets. In El Patron everything (food, atmosphere, service) was average at best. We were not in a mood for a bottle of wine, and the only by glass option was a house wine. It will take several tries to find such a low quality wine in the store. We haven't had "VIP card", so we were billed ~15% over the listed price, plus tax, plus 10% gratitude. Overall, it was one of the worst AND the most expensive meal we got in Puerto Vallarta.More

We stumbled on this place, just off the main Hotel zone. The owner was very friendly. All the staff spoke english (although they helped us with our spanglish!! Fresh caught seafood. I had the special fresh fish dish, creatively displayed, great flavor - sesame crusted,...ahi tuna on a bed of organic mixed greens with steamed veggies - felt like I was back in San Francisco! It's right on the corner, nicely shaded with a quick walk from Sheraton (5mins). He brought us fresh baked homemade bread and a "house" creamy coffee drink on the "house". Amazing owner. Support local!!!More

Amazing food, we ate here literally everyday. I recommend everything on the menu - it's all delicious. Plus you get the best pico de Gallo and homemade chips to start.

I love Mexican cuisine. A varied menu included burritos, many types of tacos, sides and drinks. Chips and homemade salsa round out the menu. Enjoyed every bite.

Great waiters, David was our favourite, extensive menu with additional menu of premium dishes at extra cost. Well stocked bar with a Sauvingnon Blanc that was my wife's favourite. Fish Tacos to die for and Drunken Octopus (cooked in Tequila) was delicious.More

Last year we happened to find El Patron and WOW are we happy. The service is outstanding, the food is outrageously delicious and the prices are so reasonable. We have never had anything we didn’t like or want again. The portions are such you could...split. We have been there twice in two weeks and will go back again soon.More
