Fish of the day was not very warm, would have been more palatable if served hot
Excellent food and service. Great restaurant. Great waiter .
Food so beautifully prepared and such thought and care in its preparation. Such a treat to experience.
Tintoque has become our favorite restaurant in Puerto Vallarta. The food is both imaginative and delicious. Service was extraordinary. We are happy to be going back soon.
Came here for friend’s birthday. Definitely fine dining and the food was excellent. Wine list reasonable. Not a big fan of their cocktails but I’m sure they appeal to many people. Worth the 30 minute cab ride from downtown for a special event.
Overall, Tintoque is an amazing fine-dining restaurant and one of the best in Vallarta. However, the quality of service does not match the quality of the food. The wait staff are often frantic and running around too fast to really pay attention to a table. My other complaint would be the bartenders; if you request any cocktail that isn't on the menu, good luck getting a good one. A simple old fashioned tasted like a glass full of bitters and water -- almost undrinkable. Stick to wine and don't expect fine-dining service and you'll be golden.
Every experience we have at Tintoque is excellent! The staff, service and food are superb!
Good restaurant but the consistancy is lacking. Friendly staff and helpful. Some dishes are worth a second try but most are ordinary. WAY WAY to ambitious for the chefs experience.
Excelente comida, arriesgada pero sin pretensiones, servicio casual y atento. Me sorprendió para bien. Merece una mejor ubicación. Me parece que quedé más satisfecha que cuando cené en la competencia. El menú es mucho más creativo y los precios relativamente más bajos. Totalmente recomendable!!!
Portions were extremely small. Having read the reviews I couldn’t wait to eat there. Prices are on the high side for Puerto Vallarta. My friend and I shared the steak for two-this left us quite hungry! Steak was somewhat tough.We also had appetizers which were small.
Presentation for food was beautiful.
We had a lovely dinner at Tintoque. Ate there three times during my five week stay in PV. I have traveled the world and this restaurant rates high on my list for having a unique menu, and the presentation is beautiful. If you want great service and a place that will end up being a PV favorite then try them out.
Food was different but excellent.
Unique modern cuisine. Daniel was a terrific waiter.
This was our first time to experience Tintoque. Everyone we met at the pool raved about the food so we anxiously made a reservation. We enjoyed our experience so much that we went back the next night. We also recommended it to two other couples who equally enjoyed the experience. I am going back in April to PV and will definitely go back to Tintoque.
A little bit expensive with small portions. The service was excellent.
Best restaurant in Puerto Vallarta. If I could give six stars I would.
Me encantó el lugar ,los meseros súper atentos,la comida súper deliciosa
Esperaba más por parte del Capitán ya que había puesto en la reservación que era mi cumpleaños #18 y no hicieron nada en especial
De ahí en fuera un 10 a todo el staff
Food was absolutely fantastic. Service was perfect. Ambiance was modern, clean, extremely enjoyable. This restaurant is pretty much perfect on every level.
We had a delightful experience- ambiance, food & service were all on par with our expectations, being from NYC, we have high expectations...Tintoque met them all.
One of the best restaurants in town, the service is great and they pamper you. The chef makes his creation with a taste of surprise in each bite. The mixed drinks are different and amazing.
Nous avons séjourné 5 semaines à Puerto Vallarta ce qui nous a permis de découvrir différents restaurants. Ceci dit, le soir précédent notre départ nous sommes tombés sur un magazine où il avait un article sur le chef du Tintoque et après avoir lu cet article nous avons réservé une table pour deux. Enfin, l’expérience fut des plus agréable, que ce soit l’accueil, le décor, le service ( un serveur au sourire permanent ) et bien sûr la qualité de la nourriture ( la nouvelle cuisine mexicaine s’étant frotté à l’Italie, la France et sûrement l’Espagne) . Bref cet endroit ce n’est que du bonheur.

Food very well prepared technically, textures and flavors very well cared.
Timing when tasting menu and regular a la carte are served together should be reviewed in order to bring a better experience for the guests.
Tasting menu in a must and should have a better spot on the menu ( difficult to see and understand ).
Overall excelente dining experience as far as taste and value are concerned.
Dangerous down step on you way out ( at the door ) . Please advise....
Not a good choice for a hungry group who had a cocktail prior to arrival. An extremely unusual and eclectic menu, but the portions were so very small that we left hungry. In fact, one person didn't even eat what she ordered because it had fish in it - gazpacho.
A must try when in the area. Very talented chef with amazing presentation. Super friendly staff and a good wine list. Totally enjoyed our evening.
Excellent experience and remarkable food
The food is exceptional! Food as art! It was V Day and other than the 30 minute wait as they set up the kitchen, the evening was paced well. They made special salad for me as I don't eat raw fish (it was fixed menu for Valentines Day). All the food was excellent. I had the steak which was melt in your mouth. #2 had the fish with beet puree, again it was fantastic. The only downside was a reservation at 5:15 and they weren't ready until almost 6pm. It wasn't huge since we were relaxed and not in a hurry, however I'm not sure why they would take a reservation for that early when it was clear they weren't ready.
Tintoque is very expensive but worth it.
Overall Excellent. Service was a little slow/disorganized but very friendly. Food was spectacular and so original. We will be back.
As usual the food and service was exquisite!
After 8 visits I keep waiting for something to go wrong. NEVER!!! Food is awesome, service is awesome and price is very reasonable. My buddy looked at the bill and said, “that’s all?”...
Maravilloso lugar, la comida es arte y experiencia cultural. Gran concepto
I will echo the “must visit “ theme of other reviews. Service is excellent, staff are friendly. This place serves some of the best food I have had, ever. If you have an opportunity, visit Tintoque!
Very creative and delicious - highly recommend.
Food was tasty, but the portions were way too small. We didn’t taste any alcohol in their house mojito . There was a long lasting whirring sound from a nonstop blender. It was very annoying. The bang for the buck is questionable. Ambiance is a clean minimalist look.
We picked here because it had great reviews and it was for a birthday dinner. They were very attentive and the food was really good. They all sang Happy Birthday and brought a complimentary delicious dessert. It is a very different dining experience.
Un lugar muy bonito, decoración y ambiente muy padre y la comida súper rica la combinación de todos los elementos de cada platillos son únicas
Unique and outstanding menu selections, the "Sampler dinner"was superb. Great atmosphere, our waiter ( David?) was personable & very knowledgable about our various selections.
I think this restaurant is deserving of a top rating.
Cuisine exceptionnelle, présentation spectaculaire. Tout est excellent !
