The Iguana Restaurant & Tequila Bar
Cena: 6:00p.m. - 11:00 p.m.
It was the perfect place for my wife and I to celebrate my birthday. Just a great ambiance. The food was very good and reasonably priced. A good not great wine selection but again reasonably priced.
If you wonder if you should go. Go
Outstanding food and view! Service is always good. Always try to come now when in puerto Vallarta.
Excelente el servicio, Alejandro el mesero fue muy amable. La comida y el ambiente estupendo. Fui impulsado a visitar el lugar por haber sido el lugar donde vivió Elizabeth Taylor y se me hizo muy agradable. Fue cara la cuenta, pero lo disfrute mucho con mi familia.
Para una cena romantica, este es un lugar perfecto.
Excellent in every way: food, service, ambiance. The food in Puerto Vallarta has been really good every place we’ve been. But this takes the prize so far. The filet and the salmon we had were done to perfection. The sauces and sides were delectable. And the tequila! And the desserts!! Even the coffee was the best. Get the Iguana salad: So good. We got there early 7:30 and got the corner table with a wonderful view of the ocean and the forest and the town, but there are no bad tables. Thank you to the entire staff last night.
It was my birthday and was the best experience. Perfect service, amazing food and unbelievable ambiance! This was our third time there and every time has been exquisite! It has to be the best restaurant in Puerto Vallarta!!
Went for our anniversary, this was our view. Service sucked
Gorgeous surroundings, great food and fantastic service. What else could you ask for?
This visit to the Iguana left us wanting more.... We were there last November with a group of nine and had a spectacular time. The food was good, the wait staff was wonderfully attentive, and there was live entertainment, a mariachi group. The entertainment that evening was fabulous. During this visit to PV we decided to return since we had someone traveling with us who had never experienced the place before. Although the restaurant was as beautiful as before, the service was just fair. We had called to see if we could add one more person to our reservation and were told, "no!" They said they were full for the evening. Yet as we dined, there were tables on both sides that remained empty all night. In our mind, they could have easily accommodated one more person, but we weren't privy to what goes on behind the scenes. Even though we chose a later seating, because we knew the restaurant would be hot, it was still extremely warm. There are definitely trade offs for the view and experience. I guess our biggest complaint was the lack of entertainment. We really wanted our friend to experience the incredible mariachi band;needless to say it didn't happen. When asked about it, they said they don't do that anymore. Don't get me wrong, the food was good: there was pork shank, diablo shrimp, and enchiladas served and they were all tasty. I considering the question- would we recommend it to friends... we have before, but I'm not sure we would do so again with so many other fabulous restaurants in PV and the surrounding area. I hope it was just an off night for the restaurant.
Took my boyfriend to dinner here for his birthday. The servers are very attentive and the food was very good. My boyfriend got the pork shank, which was so good so definitely recommend that dish. Drinks were good as well. The only downside was the heat, but that can be avoided if you go later in the evening in the summer months. The house itself is beautiful and perfect for photo opportunities :)
Beautiful setting with first class food and service. This romantic setting in a rebuilt mansion where Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton once lived (Casa Kimberly) is now a 9 room 5 star hotel. A perfect choice for a romantic dining experience.
We had an amazing dinner here in a beautiful historic place. The staff was on point and made this a very memorable dining experience!
Iguana Bar at Casa Kimberly never disappoints and is always amazing. The food, drink, wine list and service is not to be missed.
I love mariachis, your mariachis are the best, but for me they are too loud for fine dining. They were not there and it was better. I understand and respect that others feel differently. I still love Iguana.
We absolutely loved our “date night” at the Iguana Restaurant. Casa Kimberly is exquisite and we can now say that we have visited one of the most beautiful properties in the world. We can’t wait to bring all of our family and friends when the come to visit!
Simply exquisite. Service is second-to-none and food was quite lovely. We will back every year.
MAGICAL! Speechless, it was so amazing!
It's a must do! We will definitely be back!
We always have a great meal here and this time was no exception.
Excellent. Out of town guests celebrated 45 year anniversary. They were blown away!
Mariachi band was outstanding
The Iguana is a fantastic place for a classy and elegant dinner. Set in the beautiful Casa Kimberly hotel, formerly Elizabeth Taylor’s home, this place is one of the swankiest places in all of Puerto Vallarta.
The food here is excellent though a little ordinary. But what they do, they do well. And it’s nice to have a nice elegant place to get away from the usual tacos and beers around Vallarta.
My only disappointment is they love to push their overpriced water on you. Even after specifically turning down bottled water for myself (at $135 pesos a bottle, are you kidding?), our waiter continued to press me on it, asking me several times in succession if he should bring me a bottle of water. I repeatedly said no (that money would’ve gone towards a Margarita there) but finally after being asked the 5th time within a 30 second period, I gave in. I guess I just won’t have my margarita.
I’m certainly not cheap but I do dine with a budget in mind, and I will not order a bottle of water knowing I won’t be drinking it. But the waiter was relentless.
Delicious food, nice atmosphere
This is one of the best restaurants we have ever been to in Puerto Vallarta. Considering how elegant the space is and how good the food is, the prices were not outrageous. We were there on a Friday night for my birthday. We were fortunate enough to be entertained by the Mariachi band, who were fantastic. Even the rain later that evening couldn't put a damper on the experience. We will go back in a heart beat.
Gorgeous venue with a delicious menu. Everything we ordered was delicious. We paired with two Mexican wines, which were surprisingly good.
The restaurant is all about the view and the historic nature of the house. Service was ok, but not exceptional. The food was good, but very small portions. Again, you're there for the view and the historic house.
This was our first visit to The Iguana.
Beautiful restaurant & very good food.
Loved the historical ties to old Hollywood (Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton) & enjoyed the great service.
Beautiful romantic view overlooking Puerto Vallarta. We will be back on our next trip… I consider this a must on our dining reservations… Advise you to take a cab unless you're a Billy goat… Enjoy your evening!!
The service last night was almost non existent. It appeared to our party they were understaffed but when I got up to ask for something
most of the servers were together talking at the bar. We were disappointed.
it has a lovely setting, good food and excellent service.
Great place !!!!
Everything was lovely. My only complaint was that my salad was carpaccio pulpo. It came to me frozen hard. I pointed it out. He said it should by served chilled. I waited 10 or so minutes until I could separate it. Then it was delicious. Just odd.
Utterly outstanding. Not to be missed when in PV
If you go to Puerto Vallarta - YOU MUST enjoy dinner here at least one evening of the trip.
From the magical setting of Elizabeth Taylor's home, to the historic bridge spanning the street - to the amazing views - not to mention the beautiful ambience/decor. This place is simply amazing. Then add wonderful service with fabulous cuisine - and you've got the Iguana. OH - and the violin duo added the final touch to make our night one of the most memorable dining experiences ever. Thank you so much for creating this super amazing restaurant.
Service was great. Mariachi band was the best I ever experienced. Wonderfull dinning experience
Unbelievable in every way! Great service, friendly staff, AMAZING food and ambiance. I can not say enough good things about this place.
Outstanding history at this restaurant, and the food was excellent. Service very good and the entire experience worth repeating!
Absolutely wonderful, aside from the drunk older gentleman who kept bothering everyone. One of a kind place filled with magic.
Outstanding . . . Not to be missed
Exceptional dining experience
This restaurant, view and ambiance is absolutely divine. The food and staff are also fantastic.
Blown away by the beauty of this restored home of Elizabeth Taylors. I would dine here again and again. The seafood was all fantastic. Can't wait to come back!
Fantastic meal, superior service. Soft shell crabs were the BEST!!
Beautiful venue. Al fresco with chandeliers... Impeccable service. Best soft-shell crab ever. Accomplished versatile band played much of the evening. Perfect evening.
