Costa Arena at Vidanta Vallarta
Costa Arena never disappoints. We return to this restaurant for dinner every time in PV. Enjoy sunset dining with excellent service. Food is fresh well prepared.
My favorite place to eat when I stay here’ such beautiful sunsets!
Excelente vista a la playa y a la Bahía de Banderas.
El pescado estaba frío y no de buena calidad.
La carne buena pero pequeña porción.
This was our last dinner on the resort, and it turns out - we saved the best for last!
Had Christmas dinner here with the family. Everything from the vegetarian options to steak and lobster was excellent. Excellent service and prices are very reasonable for the quality and portion. Highly recommended. We will return for sure.
The food and service were unremarkable.
Good food, generous portions and great ambience outdoors!
Quiet with minimal restaurant lighting at this beach side restaurant where you can literally dine under the stars. Great service, reasonable prices and great food.
Our reservation was for 7. We left there at nearly 10! Don't believe there was enough waiters on that night. It seemed our waiter when asked a question left to find the answer and took so long to come back! Food just 'so so' for the price. Other places on the resort that were 'hands above' better.
The service and food were spectacular. Reservations recommended as sunset (around 6:30 p.m. while visiting) was the perfect setting. We shared multiple entrees (fish of the day, rib eye steak and scallops) and also enjoyed a few bottles of wine which were all reasonable (for being on resort). Would highly recommend for all visitors as the special night of the vacation.
Such a beautiful restaurant, food was excellent. Our waiter Edvin was so kind, attentive and deserves to be recognized.
Severely disappointed! The 5 medium-sized scallops for 480 Pesos ($23US, $31CDN) from the main-course section of the menu was a complete ripoff. Since it's an a la carte restaurant, the scallops were all that came for $480! I'd originally ordered the crawfish but they were out of that, so a quick decision with no help from the waiter turned out to be a poor one.
Great food presented beautifully. The seared tuna steak is great as well as the baked beets. Have not had a dish that was not delicious. The atmosphere is perfect with the ocean in front of you especially on a pretty sunset evening. Staff are very accommodating and pleasant. Highly recommend!
The views and sunsets do not get any better. The food is amazing. The staff are attentive and friendly.
A wonderful place for a romantic dinner or dinner with friends as well because the atmosphere is great and the noise level is conducive for talking.
Amazing views, really good food, but service was very slow.
We came to dinner on a night when it could have been quite caotic they had just announced hurricane warnings in the area. It was raining quite heavy. The staff did everything to make our dinner a very pleasant dining experience. They made sure we had transportation back to our lodging and umbrellas.
I would recommend this restaurant and their food .It was excellent.👍
The food and service was amazing! We had the surf and turf and it was amazing
Excellent restaurant. The best the resort has to offer. Service and food were phenomenal.
Great food, one of our favorite restaurants at Vidanta. Will be back again!
Although the bugs were terrible at sunset, Edvin and the rest of the staff made it as comfortable for us as possible with insect repellent to apply and mosquito coils. Try the citrus margarita! It was fabulous!
Fresh fish options were superb! A step up from our last visit here
It was okay, just very expensive and the menu online is NOTHING like the menu they actually have. I was informed that they had changed the menu but the resort did nothing to change what they’re advertising online. I went there for the menu I thought they had and ultimately only got appetizers because there wasn’t anything we wanted. They also got us to buy a very overpriced bottle of water instead of offering us regular water. So we paid $50 pesos for water that’s normally $25 at the resort. They also only take CREDIT cards. Not cash or debit, which is ridiculous. I wouldn’t go back.
Por estar en la costa, tuvimos una vista del atardecer muy hermosa, y la comida estuvo esplendida y el servicio excelente, tan es así que cuando salimos pidieron el carro para que nos llevara a nuestro edificio.
Stunning views coupled with exceptional service and delicious food all make this a gem!
Excellent beachside dining on vacation.
Vacation at Vidanta resort. This restaurant is at the beach. The service goes above and beyond, just like everywhere at the resort. The food is very fresh and prepared properly. One night we had the lobster special, which had four courses. I’ve never seen, much less eaten, such a big delectable lobster tail. It was at least 500 grams! Fabulous salad, clam chowder and house made sorbet. Another night we had a grilled fish cooked over a wood fire. Highly recommend Costa Arena.
Excellent all around.
Best seafood I tried and a wonderful sunset experience
La peor experiencia en una cena .. el mesero llegó a tomarnos la orden, no quiso explicarnos los platillos, al tomar mi orden, que fue una ensalada de jaiba, me pregunto de manera grosería y altanera si solo eso iba a cenar .. al retirar mi plato y darse la vuelta me golpeó con su codo .. no tuvo la decencia ni amabilidad de disculparse .. según el no se dio cuenta del golpe que recibí con su codo en mi cabeza .. solo contesto con sarcasmo : ah si?no me di cuenta ...
pedimos cambio de mesero, el gerente fue e intento componer la situación .
Great food, very slow between courses.
Se tardaron en traer el servicio 1 hora y media de toda la cena lo único que valió la pena fue un arroz que venía d guarnición, precios execibos, para la cañidada de alimentos jamás regresaría
Good food, great service and breathtaking view.
One of the best paces to ear if you are at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta and cost isn’t an issue
We loved Costa Arena! We went here for our 10th anniversary and were not disappointed. Service, ambiance and food are excellent! Great setting right on the beach to enjoy the sunset and delicious food in a relaxed environment. Our waiter, Giovanny, was amazing. Very knowledgeable about food and wine recommendations and very friendly and professional. He recommended the sea bass (lobina in Spanish), which was amazing! Highly recommend this restaurant!
Excelente lugar, a la orilla de la playa con vista espectacular, comida magnifica, gran servicio
This place is fabulous! Spectacular view and great food.
The red snapper was awesome! Great presentation on the lobster bisque.
Excellent food, view, service, ambiance!
Ordered daily special Fish was either over cooked or not fresh. Sent it back. We used to love costa arena - not anymore
main dish sea bass served cold twice with no one coming over to discuss. poor service in that regard
appetizers were great
