One of my absolute favorite restaurants in Puerto Vallarta has to be El Barracuda. This beachfront casual dining establishment checks all the boxes on my list of what makes a fantastic restaurant. The food is delicious, the ambiance can’t be beat (unobstructed ocean views, toes in the sand), friendly and efficient service, and a relaxed chic vibe creates a very special place.
Located in downtown PV’s 5 de Diciembre neighborhood at Paraguay 1290, El Barracuda sits on a nice sandy strip of beach that does not receive too many beach vendors (a highilght in my opinion!). Their sister establishment, El Solar serves the full menu as well, but incorporates a more laid back bar/lounge feel with beach lounge chairs and cool background music (not played loudly!). El Solar stays open late and is quite the hotspot for the beautiful people of PV looking to enjoy live DJ music on a mellow beach. If you’re not up for a late night, sunset is always the best part of the El Barracuda/El Solar experience in my opinion!
