Great food & experience
Great food, ambience and service!
Had a group of 6 and were seating right on time. The food was excellent, the drinks were ample and service was attentive without being intrusive. I always include River Cafe in my plans during my New Years holiday visit.
Everything was absolutely AMAZING! From the food and service to the music and ambiance ... wonderful! I’ll definitely be back!
New Years eve
To be fair, we had dinner on New Years and were presented with a 4 choice menu. So we really weren't exposed to their many daily choices. So they were a little crowded and service was just ok. I would go back should we return to PV. The venue is very nice, there was live music and am sure the standard menu is very good.
Lo malo: Estuvimos en la cena de fin de año hicimos nuestra reservación y llegamos a la hora pactada. Sin embargo pedimos un Rack de Cordero que era una de las opciones y ya se había terminado. Pedimos una crema de Poro y Papa y nos sirvieron de Champiñones.
Lo bueno: El lugar estaba muy bien ambientado, la música y la atmósfera cumplieron con su objetivo. La comida que si hubo estaba excelente.
The review may not be too fair. We were there for the New Year's day set menu dinner. Very crowded and very busy. The other times we were there it was always outstanding.
This beautifully located restaurant on the river is so welcoming from the moment you step in. The hostess is wonderful and charming.
Our server who has been working there for over 15 years is the very very best.
The food is always fresh and delicious.
We had a seat in the gazebo overlooking the river.
The guacamole is really really fresh and delicious. The calamari is the best that I have had in PV
The chips and salsa they serve at the beginning are right on point.
The fajitas were served sizzling and delicious.
This is a must if visiting PV.
And to top it all off the margaritas were two for one.
This was a wonderful place. The hostess is so welcoming as are all of the servers.
The location is absolutely beautiful. The service is outstanding, efficient and friendly.
The two for one margaritas were a pleasant surprise.
The fajitas were excellent, perfectly cooked and sizzling. The Mexican plate was really good. The guacamole here is yummy.
They brought me a birthday cake and sand happy birthday.
We will be back for sure
Had an amazing breakfast. Looking forward to our next visit.
The ambience was delightful and the food amazing! The presentation of each dish was so original from the calamari in a seaweed cone with a wonderful sweet mustard aioli to the rainbow shrimp plated between a red beet purée and carrot purée. A pleasure to look at and taste! Highly recommended for your next visit to Puerto Vallarta.
Spending one week in Puerto Vallarta for Christmas vacation. River Cafe is located in a charming area with great food, excellent service and live music.
Excellent breakfast, always a must when in PV!
What a great birthday celebration! The tuna with goat cheese and pesto was the best meal during our 2 week stay in Puerto Vallarta. River Cafe has a lovely setting. Our server Martin was very attentive and did a great job. The chocolate birthday cake and ice cream was excellent. We will be back next year.
Beautiful restaurant along a river. Good food and service.
Always wonderful when we go to River Cafe - super Staff and delicious food with great presentation
Great food. Friendly staff. If you are a vegan/vegetarian or gluten free be sure to ask for that menu. The night we cam they had live music. Romantic place. We have been here a couple times and love it
Very nice experience, have been many times. Would recommend definitely
Fantastic dinner again at River Cafe. We loved the drinks and music before dinner in the bar. Our meals were delicious - filet was juicy and cooked perfectly, and desert was amazing. We’ll be back again next year.
Food was delicious. We mixed restaurant week and regular items on the menu. We sat on an island overlooking the Rio Cuale. A wonderful esperience
Great place for Sunday brunch; festive and the food is great. Service, impeccable.
A perfect evening. It was raining lightly but their are canopies so it was very romantic along the river. The service was perfect and the food was delicious. We had the mussels and pear salad to start, then my husband had the mahi mahi which he loved, and I had the duck which was out of this world. The portions were large so next time we may split the entree (we are not big eaters). Will definitely go back to the River Cafe!
Just a little lunch with friends. Nice to dine in open air in the middle of jungle — nice soothing sounds of the flowing river below but only a half block from bustling city traffic. A pastor quesadillas delicious and service crisp and professional.
another great dinner at River Cafe. table next to the river was wonderful. linguini, mahi mahi and apple salad were very tasty. highly recommend
For 16 years our favorite PV restaurant
Wonderful service and great food! Beautiful setting.
Delicious food, great location. If you sit right on the river it can be pretty loud but it looks so gorgeous we thought it was worth it. Service was impeccable! Highly recommend.
Great service, delicious food, beautiful views of birds, iguanas, and the flowing river. We stop in for lunch every time we are in PV.
Great food and service
First time in Puerto Vallarta and someone on the plane told us to check out River Cafe. We heard it was spectacular so we saved for the last night and they didn’t disappoint! I recommend the Tuna dish, phenomenal! But everything was A+ from the staff to the drinks, food, and dessert. GO there!
Always a great place to eat. Plus an excellent happy hour.
One of the more beautiful spots to enjoy a nice lunch in downtown Puerto Vallarta.
I love this restaurant and come here every time I visit Puerto Vallarta (at least twice a year). The restaurant is next to a river surrounded by trees. The service is excellent and the food is even better, if possible. This is a place you must try when you visit Puerto Vallarta.
We really enjoyed having dinner here
Always the best food and experience
I always love the River Cafe. It is quiet. Nothing fancy. I always enjoy for lunch. Service is always great and the Iguana's are a great attraction as well. I visit the city many times a year and this is one place I always go.
Lo que fuera un ícono de Puerto Vallarta ya esta a la baja. La presentación y preparación de los platillos es mediocre, la decoración y el servicio necesitan refrescarse.
Por muchos años hemos visitado el River Cafe, y sigue siendo extraordinario.
The River Cafe is a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle of the Malecon. The food is fairly average but good. The avocado soup is delicious. The wait staff is excellent.
