Great dining experience. I had the mahi mahi and it was wonderful. The sauce was great as were the veggies. My husband had the duck which has moist and delicious. We loved the atmosphere, very quiet and cozy. We had a table by the little river. The Mexican coffee was also very good. We will be back! Oh and the service was awesome also. And the music started when we were leaving and it was a two-man group and the flute player was wonderful as well as the singer.
Dinner was wonderful. From appetizers to desert fantastic!
lovely evening. lovely setting. great food and music. very good service.
This was our first time at River Cafe and had a truly wonderful evening at this beautifully decorated and unique restaurant. The owner was very welcoming and a pleasure to meet. The staff were excellent...very knowledgeable and attentive. The food was superb and beautifully presented. The beet coulis salad was amazing! The margaritas are the smoothest and best in PV! The live music was a bonus to this great evening. We now have a favourite restaurant in PV and will be back for sure!
River Cafe is always amazing and would not go to PV without going there !
This is a beautiful spot we have enjoyed many times. It seems in the last 2 years the quality of the food has declined and the prices gone up. Unfortunately we won’t go back again there are too many lovely restaurants in PV these days.
Has become our “go to” place. Come for the food and stay for the music. The staff always makes you feel welcome.
The River Cafe continues to be one of the finest restaurants anywhere and certainly the best in PV. We had an incredible meal there Saturday night. Apple salad and shrimp brochettes with pineapple and mango sauce. The flavours were just superb !
Martin, our waiter, was just attentive enough - always offering the finest service.
We would never come to PV and not go here. Evita’ s kitchen and Manuel’s welcome alway makes our evening so very special.
Thank you to all and see you again soon!
Awesome! We have been coming to PV for 19 years ... River Cafe has always been a favorite! Highly recommend!
I would recommend River Cafe because it is usually wonderful! We went on Valentine’s Day so it was a special pre-fixed menu. Very expensive!! We have some selections we really like but they weren’t available. Very busy so service was pretty slow. We’ll go back, but not on a holiday!
Very good food and service, would definitely recommend.
Beautiful restaurant right on the river. Sunday they provide a traditional buffet for a reasonable price. Lots of items to choose from.
Great restaurant. Really good music too...a guy who sang songs in Spanish, French, and English.
Always a special meal! The music they offer adds to the ambiance.
Birthday.Very nice place with great food and service.
We’ve eaten here every time we are in PV. Had the duck for dinner. Excellent! I’m super picky about Margaritas. There’s is the real deal. Friendly waiters. Treat yourself!
I am sorry to tell you my wife's chicken was very dry and hard. Well below your regular standards we are used to.
We enjoyed the entertainment and the homemade ravioli was excellent. Great Cosmo!
Always a good meal at the River Cafe. Everything was very good and the combo playing in the bar was perfect.
River Cafe continues to be one of our favorite restaurants in Puerto Vallarta year after year. Always a very special, memorable Saturday dining experience. Highly recommend it.
River Cafe's standards of excellence in their food has fallen quite a bit over the past 6 years. I had the pasta with seafood and tomato sauce. The sauce was uninspiring and bland. Two people had the Mahi-mahi which was overcooked. My wife had the artichoke ravioli and that was excellent.
Food and service were very good. However, there was a loud band playing making it almost impossible to talk. I recall other times a nice jazz band playing and not overpowering everything. The setting is lovely but that loud music is not conducive to a pleasant experience. So I was disappointed.
Sunday brunch cannot be beat--the usual American Sunday Buffet with a Mexican twist.
Lovely spot, eat out on the river! Two recommendations; maitre de was not friendly and lamb was tough. However, mahi mahi was delicious!
Beautiful restaurant and wonderful service. My Salmon, however, was overdone.
Always a pleasure to go to this very special restaurant with pleasant musicians, god food and friendly service.
It’s a wonderful ambiance among the palms and river Cuale below.
Service is fantastic at the River Cafe, a beautiful location overlooking the Rio Cuale. Food is delicious and well-priced.
I love the river cafe.. always the best, and service and staff are wonderful. Breakfast, lunch or dinner.. you can't go wrong!!
Consistently excellent food and service.
Highly recommend The River Cafe. We have been dining there since they opened in 1996. Save room for dessert, they are delightful!
We and never disappointed when we go here. Food and staff are both excellent.
Always a great dining experience with great service and great food. You will never be disappointed.
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.
