Costa Arena at Vidanta Vallarta
Celebraciones de Aniversarios.
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
Muy rico y amplia variedad de platilos. Lento el servicio aunque muy amables
Una hora y media para el primer platillo.
Empezaron diciendo que chef pasaría a la mesa y por eso el retraso. El chef nunca fue. Lo que podría haber sido una gran experiencia lo volvieron una terrible ocasión. Comida excelente pero servicio terrible.
All meals were wonderful - special meals all week. Guest chef Christian Bravo was OUTSTANDING
Amazing meal! We shared the seafood BBQ ... terrific food - not inexpensive, but tasty as all get out.
Perfect in every way
Great sunset setting with the restaurant located on the beach.
Had Surf and Turf, it was very good!
Overall good service.
However poor wine selection.
Mediocre food. Terrible service even by local standards.
We decided to go one night for a date night. Service was very good, the food was good too. My wife did order a steak and it came severely undercooked. She sent back twice, but this was not the waiters fault. I thought the steak looked great, but she doesn’t like undercooked meat. Scallops were very good. Best salads that we had!
Wonderful ambiance, sunset, service and FOOD!!!!
Everything was exceptional!!
We were very disappointed with our dinner. They recommended we order catch of the day. They said it was good for 2 to 3 persons. The fish was so large we had more leftover than we ate. Could have fed 5 . It was so expensive we would never that ordered it . The good was excellent . I think they should tell you how much the fish weighs and the price. Too bad because it’s beautiful.
We keep returning to this restaurant because of the beautiful setting close to the beach on Banderas Bay. The food and service has gotten better over time since this restaurant opened several years ago.
I have eaten at this beautiful restaurant several times over many years. Mostly bad experiences but I thought I’d give it one last try but I’m sad to say that it will be my last.
We started the evening off with delicious fresh tuna poke. But the mains are still hits and misses.
The grilled chicken was a disaster and came twice over looking like a misshapen, skinless mess. My expensive grilled jumbo shrimps came cooked perfectly but the shrimps themselves were not fresh caught and therefore had a mealy, mushy texture and not pleasant to eat. Such a pity since fresh shrimps are plentiful here.
Thankfully the tuna steak was fresh caught and came out perfectly cooked and thoroughly enjoyed. The steak which was chosen instead of the chicken was tasty, tender and perfectly cooked.
I guess you have to be lucky in what you choose to eat here.
Muy buen servicio en el.restaurant y un ambiente placentero
Great location, excellent food but not great service. We dined with a couple that had eaten there two nights ago and they also commented on the service being at a much lower level than their previous experience. I would still recommend since it appears that the service was an aberration.
Beautiful setting and good food and service!
Cena familiar muy agradable, atención excelente, la comida deliciosa pedimos mar y t ierra que era la especialidad del día. La langosta y el filete en su punto. Los postres deliciosos. Las porciones generosas. La opción de reservar en línea es genial.
Amazing service, food prepared exactly to order. Ambiance is amazing
The food was cold.
The resort restaurant has a beautiful view...we sat and watched the sunset over the water. While the food was tasty (we only had wine and appetizer), the service was very slow. I was also disappointed with the wines by the glass selection. Now, I understand that we are on vacation and in Mexico, but since we weren't having a full dinner, it seemed like we were the "forgotten child" when it came to service. We have eaten here before, and are likely to return, but it is not my favorite restaurant at the resort.
Awesome experience. Service was impeccable, food was amazing. Sunset dining experience was fantastic.
Awesome atmosphere but food was mediocre for how much it cost. Service was good and wide variety of options on menu- just not a whole lot of flavor.
Our second dinner experience at Costa Arena. Beautiful location, and varied menu with top tier fresh fish and beef options. Very nice food presentation and excellent use of spices and natural flavor enhancers to salads, soups and main course dishes. Moderately priced but good value and experience.
