El Chef Propietario, Mauricio, nos atendió personalmente. A pesar de que estaba lleno el lugar, el servicio fue muy ameno.
La comida fue excelente, pero los postres son de otro mundo.
Esperamos volver pronto
Este restaurante es una sorpresa muy cómodo y excelente comida y servicio.
This is a fantastic restaurant. Humble staff, great service and first class food. Fine dining with a Mexican twist. Great wines from Mexico.
This is a must visit restaurant.
Very relaxed atmosphere for such great food. This place could easily win a Michelin star. The dishes really do look like the pictures online. Can’t wait to go again.
Beautiful restaurant. Food choices were many and interesting. Good wine choices too. Service was terrific and food was beautifully presented and so good. Popular with fashionable Nationals.
Absolute a highlite at Vallarta restaurants.
Fantastic creative food, very professional and friendly service.
Can’t wait to come back!
Excelente atención, menú sumamente atractivo tanto en alimentos como en cocteles. Carta de vino muy bien hecha. Comida deliciosa. Definitivamente lo recomiendo.
ANOTHER WONDERFUL EVENING, WITH FRIENDS AT ICU, AS ALWAYS, EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!
Incredible cuisine, attentive and welcoming staff.
Very nice, but the music is way too loud for conversation and they would not turn it down. Apparently the staff likes it that way!!
muy padre el restaurante, chiquito y padre la decoracion
La comida es excelente y el ambiente agradable al igual que el servicio.
This is a new hidden gem in PV. Ambiance, service, and food is outstanding. Definitely the best octopus (“Pulpo Pibil”) I have tried around town or any other restaurant. Just an overall delightfull experience!
Excelente comida, perfecto para una cena romántica, el lugar está algo escondido lo que le da un toque de intimidad a la velada.
La comida está exquisita.
De principio a fin una experiencia culinaria que solo puedes encontrar en lugares como Nueva York, Londres o cualquier restaurante con Estrella Michelin. La amabilidad y servicio informativo de Mauricio y Josue (chefs/socios) le da un toque especial a la experiencia. Atendimos a in eventos el cual trataba de un menú 9 tiempos hechos por Icú y Hiroshi (un chef invitado). La combinación de lo japonés con lo mexicano fue increíble. Recomendado 100%.
Delicious food with great presentation. The chefs are extremely creative in the way they combine unexpected ingredientes and textures to create a unique dining experience. The cocktails, all of which use Mexican spirits, are delicious, fresh and fun. The place has a contemporary, minimalist design that provides the perfect setting for the food. Don't miss ICU while in Puerto Vallarta!
Ambitious and should be commended for focus on Mex flavors but not there yet
Amazing and creative food! A perfect dining experience
Elegant Dining in a small romantic atmosphere. Worth knowing that Chef Mauricio was willing to make us a Caesar Salad from scratch(egg +) which was not on the menu. The presentation and quality of his food served(Baby rack of Lamb with mint mole,lentils & veggies and a NY Ribeye with black bean sauce, grilled onions & cactus) was excellent. I was impressed that he also has had training in Paris in addition to knowledge of NY restaurants including Brooklyn's Peter Luger's steakhouse. Good wine list but expensive. All of TripAvisor's reviews to date are either Excellent or Very Good . Indulge your Senses!
Whole experience was excellent but our favorite was the scallops and the snapper. We also had a candied habanero served with vanilla ice cream for desert that was delicious. Service was excellent also.
Great space with very personalized service from the owner/chef. Fabulous cocktails and excellent wine list.
ICU is one of our favorite places to dine while we were in Puerto Vallarta. You will not be disappointed once you enter the front door. Great wine collection from Mexico and all local ingredients which the chef will tell you.
We live in Puerto Vallarta and have dined at many of the “best” restaurants in town. This newcomer is a definite addition to that list and may in fact top it. The restaurant can be tricky to find, housed in a plain, windowless building with just a small “ICU” sign next to a wooden door. Behind the door, the space is modern yet intimate and the personal service from the knowledgeable owners is both friendly and professional. They mix a great cocktail and served me one of the best Cosmopolitans I have had in PV. The cocktail list includes a selection of drinks made from Mexican spirits, and the wine list is comprised entirely of Mexican wines. The a la carte menu is tempting and creative, but we opted for the 5-course tasting menu with accompanying wine pairings – and are glad we did!
The courses were beautifully plated, creative, perfectly sized and, most importantly, delicious! The service was excellent, with the courses well-timed and well explained. The drink pairings were excellent! We had beets 3 ways, aguachile with a squid ink sauce, mahi-mahi with corn and cauliflower carpaccio (my favorite dish of the night), pork belly, and a molten chocolate desert (paired with a tequila – which really worked well).
Two huge thumbs up for this restaurant. We’ll definitely be back!
We had a wonderful experience dining at ICU. Delicious food and excellent service.
Excelente concepto de excelente cocina mexicana contemporanea. Atención personalizada. Gran cava de vinos Mexicanos! Felicidades a los Chefs.
What's to say after you say, fabulous food, great service and wonderful ambience? Oh, you can also say it has a Mexican wine and spirits list second to none!
Every thing is done with great care and pride!
El chef fue entrenado en París y es una cocina fuera de lo común. Él personalmente le da la bienvenida a sus invitados. El debería decir "Restaurante" afuera, junto a la ICU, porque el restaurante pasa desapercibido fácilmente. Además, él debería anunciar en la red porque muchos clientes potenciales no saben que hay un nuevo restaurante que vale la pena!
Para probar sin dudarlo! Excelente relación calidad / precio.
Gracias por esta cena, disfrutamos mucho!

The design and decor of the restaurant is very tasteful. The location is obscure. While the food was good, we felt that the menu was very limited and the wine selection was strictly local wines and we felt it could have been better.
One of the best restraurants in Puerto Vallarta. A hidden gem. The two owner/chefs are so creative in their flavor combinations and food preparation, and presentation. This is a very special place. The food was so wonderful...as well as the ambiance. Service was incredible. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a special evening of great dining with friends. We can’t stop talking about it.
Outstanding! From our appetizers to our desserts, we loved it all. We will definitely be returning.
La comida fue excelente y el lugar y ambiente increíbles. 100% recomendable.
ICU has been only open one month, but the experience was excellent. It's a small place but the new décor is minimalist and very nicely done. There were few people during our dining so we had plenty of service which was excellent. The food is the reason to come. After a great complementary appetizer we had a tasty beet salad. For entrees we had the beef and fish specials. The fish was one of the best we have had in PV. The NY steak was okay (hard to find really good beef in Mexico, in my experience). The waiter recommended a Mexican wine (red blend) that we loved. We spent about $130US including one drink each and a shared dessert, similar to a meal like it in Portland.
We will try it again next trip.
