We are staying across the street at Nima Bay. Our bartender told us about this gem and it did not disappoint. Everything we tried was EXCELLENT! The shrimp and avocado flute was probably the best shrimp I’ve had. And they sous vide their flat iron steak. Melts in your mouth. I am a HUGE foodie and I am so excited to have tried Tintoque. We will be here for a month, and I plan on going back at least once a week. Can’t wait to try the chefs special tasting menu! Oh yeah and the menu changes daily (part of it) so your mouth always has something new to discover. :)
By far, the best restaurant ever. Food was with proper presentation, deliciousness , and ecstatic in ways that I cannot explain. Please visit here and try the nine food tasting.
Excellent food and drinks. We did tasting menu just to get a feeling of the food and it was amazing!
Severs was great food was a little different. Pork belly tacos where great.
Food was excellent. Very innovative and perfectly cooked. Enjoyed the staff who were very friendly and helpful. Well worth the cost. Will definitely be back..
Always, always excellent. We love it and so thankful it is right here on the Marina!
Freakin amazing. Wonderful dinner
Whenever we come to Puerto Vallarta, no visit is complete without at least one meal from Tintoque.
It has been a year since our last visit, and everything was up to the standards of before. Excellent dining choice!
La comida es extraordinaria! A probar el pulpo con tamal
ONE OF THE FINEST & OUTSTANDING RESTAURANTS IN PUERTO VALLARTA, THE CHEF JOEL ORNELAS IS ONE OF THE BEST IN MEXICO, THE FOOD IS METICULOUSLY PREPARED AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND TASTE IS A PRIORITY, AS WELL AS THE IMPECCABLE SERVICE ALL AT A VERY MODEST PRICE TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE QUALITY OF FOOD AND THE AMBIENCE OF THE ESTABLISHMENT. CONGRATULATIONS TINTOQUE !!!
The Chef's tasting 9 course meal was awesome ! Will definitely return next trip to PV !
Buena opción para degustar platillos bien elaborados estilo francés consu toque vallartense, bueno para románticos.
One of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had. Thank you so much !
Our first time to Tintoque. It did not disappoint. It was outstanding. Great food, ambiance and service! A little on pricey side especially for Mexico but still worth it.
Fuimos tres amigas y el servicio y la calidad de los alimentos excelente. Nos encantó y regresaré con la familia
This was our second visit to Tintoque in 2 days, and we tried the normal menu. While the 9-course menu we tried in our previous visit could be rated as equal to a 1, perhaps 2 star Michelin Restaurant, the experience with the normal menu is not as good; the dishes that in the tasting course are amazing, in the a la carte menu are bigger... but prepared with a bit less care.
Still, the quality of the food was well above average, and as a reference probably (almost) worth a 1 star in the Michelin Guide.
We had the 9 course tasting menu, it was absolutely amazing. If the Michelin Guide rated restaurants in Puerto Vallarta, they would get 1, perhaps 2 stars. The quality definitely competes with many other 1 and 2 star Michelin restaurants I've been (food perhaps 2 star, service good but not there yet for 1 star).
A first-class, yet ‘unfussy’, restaurant, a wholly great experience! The menu was a little confusing but excellently explained by a well-informed and very cordial waiter who knew the menu, foods and preparation, inside out. [It would be nice if the manager could sort out their website so that the menus can be viewed online in advance.]. As it is the menu is inviting, imaginative and creative. The food and preparation is excellent. The venue is modern, ‘warm’ and welcoming. Customer service is second-to-none. Price is very reasonable - good value for money. Tintoque is now among my top 3 Puerto Vallarta restaurants - and very possibly my actual favourite, after visiting this area for the past 20 years. Well done Tintoque, and kudos to your knowledgeable, professional, and friendly staff! Thank you!
This was our third visit to Tintoque...a nice upscale restaurant in the Puerto Vallarta marina. The chef is particularly creative in presentation, combination of ingredients and flavor. Definitely this restaurant is a cut above and worth a visit. The service is very attentive and courteous. The only reservation is about the music which happened to be a bit loud that evening. The pork belly tacos as a sharing dish is sublime.
What a delight! Open kitchen, inventive menu! Everything was delicious and I mean EVERYTHING! Price was commensurable with plates presented. I would recommend for a nice evening out and for someone who has an adventurous palate. One who gets bored with the status quo type of dinner.
We have been there several time and the food always surprises with originality and is always fantastic. The best chef in town in my opinion.
Extraordinaria comida. Realmente muy buena y diferente.
El lugar muy agradable.
Lo que es inaceptable es que no acepten American Express en un restaurante de esta categoría y precio.
Muy caro para lo que sirven
Amazing cuisine, food was delicious, the whole experience was great, a must while in Puerto Vallarta!
A+. Todo de lo mejor , repito cada vez que puedo
We had piglet terrine, soft shell crab, and ceviche. All were amazing.
A year ago we came to Tintoque to celebrate our engagement. We had a romantic tasting menu dinner at a table covered in rose petals. The chef came out to greet us halfway through our meal to ensure we were having a wonderful time. We shared our fantastic experience on every review site we could find as the restaurant had just opened. Last night we went back to Tintoque to celebrate our honeymoon. This was the night that we were looking forward to more than ever. We had noted we were on our honeymoon on our reservation and when we were greeted they said welcome back.
We were seated in the middle of the restaurant next to a family of six with children. No roses, no congratulations, no acknowledgement of our special day like before. We ordered the 9-course tasting menu with wine pairings and waited twenty minutes before our first glass of wine showed up. The selected wines were fantastic. The last time we were here they did not have a wine pairing so this was a positive add. The fois gras was wonderful. Unfortunately, the rest of the courses were average to above average. We never really knew who our waiter was as a number of people would bring food to our tables. Our water glass was never replenished. The chef never came out like he did last time. The total bill for the two of us plus wine pairing was 4,000 MXP. Last time the experience was worth the price ... this time, it was not.
Perhaps it was an off night or perhaps they were so accommodating the first time because they were a new restaurant. We were so disappointed with our visit this time. I do hope it was just an off night for them and their service.
Had an excellent experience and dinner. Great friendly service, dishes are very well prepared, creative, and the presentation is excellent. Of all the restaurants I tried in a week in Puerto Vallarta this was my favorite. Don’t hesitate to try this place and the prices for the quality and experience are very fair. Prices in much lesser restaurants in the area were not much lower so go here instead.
Just amazing. Food: amazing. Service: fantastic
Memorable & creative dining experience✅😘
Enjoyed the excellent meal and service at Tintoque! Had chef's tasting menu, it was very creative and delicious with outstanding wine paring.
The food was great the service very slow!
Great service and deliciuos flavors. Presentation was excellent and the temperature ad textures of the food were also great. A touch of authentic Puerto Vallarta cuisine>
We come for the pork belly tacos every time. The cheesecake mousse is a must.
Absolutely the best food we had in Puerto Vallarta this trip and we ate at several similar rated and priced restaurants while there. At first glance of the menu two in my group were a little apprehensive because the item descriptions intimidated them but we got out of our comfort zone, ordered several appetizers and entree's and could not have been happier! Plus the service is top notch and the chef sends the table a small sampling of his evening creation. They have a very nice bar and a wine Sommelier on staff. Beautiful restaurant with an open kitchen, excellent food, delicious!!! Do not miss this one.
Excellent. Will be back. Menu is different and you must have adventurous palate but you will definitely find something you like. We all 5 of us had something different and we all loved what we got . Fish, crab great salads
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.
