This was a very very nice setting for a nice dinner. The restaurant is right on the river and it is an amazing setting. Make sure you have bug spray because there are a couple bugs but only if you sit outside. They have very very good food!

The Cuale Paradise is our favorite restaurant for so many reasons. The family who owns the restaurant are amazing people who dedicate themselves to improving their community. Their food is fresh and delicious. The ambiance is hard to describe because it more than beautiful, it is an experience. My husband and I had our groom's dinner at the Cuale Paradise... More

The most wonderful restaurant in Puerto Vallarta. The setting is beautiful right on the Cuale River. The trip to the restaurant takes you through little towns where local people live (not tourists). The owners are wonderful and the good is the best I have ever had. Try Mr. Shrimp, Coconut Shrimp and the Olympia Special. We had 41 people there... More

We had a pleasant meal here, sat at a table mid-river, and the atmosphere is unique and pretty, located both aside and on the island in the river. The restaurant is attractive, but a bit of an arduous taxi ride to get there. Service was nice, but somewhat slow. The food was good, but not great. We were a bit... More

Looking for a romantic place to eat dinner? Well you found it! The food and service is excellent at this great establishment in Paso Ancho. We went on a wim and didn't make reservations. You will definitely want to have reservations if you don't go early. The chips and salsa were very good. I ordered the Mr. Shrimp - it... More

I loved this place! Family run with love. Authentic Mexican food with the most amazing view, hidden off the tourist path. Don't miss out! The best tortillas in PVR.

The atmosphere can't be duplicated - natural, beautiful setting. The food was outstanding. Family owned and operated with a great deal of pride. I would have regretted missing this one!

The natural setting of this restaurant makes it one of the most special dining experiences I've ever had. But what really put it over the top was how much my family felt a part of the family preparing and serving the delicious authentic food, pouring the drinks, and playing music. A really special night. Thank you Cuale Paradise!

...service was slow. I did not mind at the beginning because we were enjoying the ambience and our chips and salsa, but waiting 30 minutes just to be able to ask for the check, and another 20 minutes to receive the check, and then another 15 to complete the transaction was a bit much. Note that I am still giving... More
