We ended up at Chenan2 quite unexpectedly late in a day of exploring Vallarta. We were seriously under dressed but the staff made us feel as welcome as the other well dressed guests in the restaurant. It is a relaxing vibe with some cool pieces of art to finish the mood. We found it in an unassuming area of old... More

My husband and I went there last night. It is a small intimate restaurant with about 15 tables. Service was excellent. Nice and quiet background music, not for partyers. The food was delicious. l I had the special fish fillet which was red snapper topped with shrimp, along with rice and aspargus and green beans. To die for. My husband... More

Chernan2 is an excellent play on words, based on the names of the father and son pair, both named Chernando, x 2 = Chernandos, or Chernan dos, or Chernan2. The two and their extended family serve continental style cuisine in a stylish, comfortable, classy, but far from ostentatious atmosphere. I was pleased to see previous positive reviews, but even more... More

Small but inviting with wonderful art. The pepper steak is a winner. The only drawback are the usual straight chairs--not comfortable for leisurely dining.

Maybe we tried this restaurant on a off night but it wasn't good enough to give them a second try. The service for us that night made us feel unwelcome, we had made reservations a good week before and after reading their reviews on trip adviser we were all excited to try but things were just "off"

This place is a recommendation for all who are interested in seafood. We enjoyed our dinner a lot. We had a delivious queso fundido for starter and then a seafood plate and the seafood spaghetti for main course and a tequila for dessert (maestro tequilero doble diamante!) :-)

Went there a couple years ago with friends and the food was top notch. We just went back with a group of friends for a farewell dinner before everyone went back home. Probably one of the best choices we could have made as all the food dishes were excellent. I had the pepper steak which was tender and just amazing... More

On a recommendation we went to Chenan2 and were not disappointed. Probably the best meal I've had in a very long time. You can tell the chef takes a lot of pride in his creations and that's what they are. I had the Filet Mighton which was the best steak I've ever had and my husband had the Surf and... More

We visited Chenan2 on our last night in Puerto Vallarta. The restaurant was very cute and clean and we had a delicious meal! We ordered a couple glasses of red wine (nice) and shared a salad (very fresh) to start. Our waiter brought some chips and yummy sauces, plus garlic bread to go with our salad. My husband had the...

There were six of us here for a birthday dinner and we were treated very well. The service is excellent, they are always checking to see if you need anything more. The steaks and seafood were excellent.

Thank Larry R
