Best Seafood in Puerto Vallarta

I absolutely love seafood. Living in Puerto Vallarta has seafood lovers like me, absolutely spoiled as there are so many great “mariscos” restaurants to discover. Today, I want to share with you a few of my favorite spots that I consider the Best Seafood in Puerto Vallarta. I hope on your next visit, you can try out one (or two!) of these fantastic establishments.

Ocho Tostadas (El Estadio)

First off, there are a few different 8 Tostadas locations, all owned by different people and therefore have different menus. They are all tasty, but my personal favorite is the location behind the stadium near the Sheraton Hotel in downtown PV. Not only is the food exceptional, the service is top notch. Many of the servers have been there for over a decade, and the owner can be found on site regularly waiting tables and working the cash register. This restaurant is very well run and it translates to big crowds of loyal customers. The clientele here is mostly local and visiting Mexicans which tells you you’ve found a truly great eatery!


Mariscos El Guero

This charming corner restaurant is located in Old Town Puerto Vallarta in the Romantic Zone. In fact, it’s located just kitty corner from our in-house luxury condo development D’esire. I wish I could explain to everyone just how wonderful the food is at Mariscos El Guero. I love their seafood cocktail, which is the goblet pictured above. It is a warm seafood soup with shrimp, octopus, scallops, squid, avocados, and cucumbers. It is so light and refreshing! Their ceviche and smoked marlin is incredible as well. Our clients who are buying homes in D’esire will be lucky enough to have this delicious restaurant just out their front door!
