I rarely write reviews, but Tintoque deserves to be talked about! The setting, service and food were all beyond my expectations. THE best food I've ever had in PV, will definitely be back!
Consistently excellent food and top notch service. A class of its own!
Everything was fabulous. We have dined at many of the chef-owned and classy restaurants in and near Puerto Vallarta. We did the chef’s tasting menu with the wine pairings. Every course was top notch, and the service was prompt and elegant from arrival to departure. We will most certainly be back again and again.
Comida muy rica ! Todo ejelente. Lugar muy lindo. Experiencia memorable.
The service was great and the food was amazing, never disappoints! They welcomed us with a complimentary palate-cleansing drink (tuba), treated us to a mini appetizer (cuitlacoche quesadilla), we ordered salads and the 36 hour baked tomatoes (highly recommended), as well as the French hen, octopus, and truffled corn for mains. For dessert, they gifted us mini chocolate mouse confections which were a perfect close to the meal.
Creative and delicious food. Formidable setting. Do not walk there at night. Park close or take a cab.
The best restaurant in Mexico. Excellent food, service, attention.
What a wonderful gem. The tasting menu eas
Delicious and they easily accommodated one of our vegan diners. Highly recommended.
We loved it! The food and service are excellent!!!
Overall great experience
One of the best meals I have every had, travelling all over the world. The food was exquisitely balanced and perfectly combined to create a whole evening of amazing food. Very attentive and knowledgeable staff. Lovely restaurant space.
Top 5 meals ever!!!
Perfect celebratory spot!
Always superb. Chef Joel is a genius in the kitchen
Another outstanding meal. The terrace is a wonderful spot beside the river by which to enjoy an amazing meal. Service is very attentive!
Victor was impeccable with his service and finesse
We had the 5 course tasting menu which was creative, striking in culinary complexity, and gorgeously presented. It was also the only option as business has apparently been too slow to warrant a full
menu. Although the portions were smaller, as you’d expect from fine dining, we left feeling satisfied and much better for the experience. my one issue was the service - after stating 3 times in both Spanish and English that I don’t eat meat, and being verbally assured that they would modify one of the courses appropriately, they didn’t and I ended up with bacon and bone broth set in front of me. As a 30 year pescatarian/vegetation, I will usually forgive this but not here, not for these prices, and because a tasting menu absolutely requires all diners to get courses at the same time - my reworked course appeared after the others had finished theirs.
you may think I’m petty for the complaint but if a restaurant bills itself as having exemplary service, then I expect more - perhaps a brief table visit from the manager, perhaps an actual apology. We received neither.
We tipped well and enjoyed the experience but if you talk the talk, you better walk the walk and Tintoque needs to train the staff to walk better. We will be back only after the training wheels are removed.
Each course was disappointing. To the point that when the final snapper “entree” came out and it was overcooked, we finally had to say something. They were gracious and provided wine and remade fish - except this time it was raw. I literally had to discard it into a napkin and no one followed up to see how things tasted. Save your money and go to San hacienda de Angel or la iguana. Sometimes too many ingredients ends up resulting in unpleasant flavors. It was a cute restaurant at least!
Great night out. Nice tasting menu for Christmas.
Great dining experience in Emiliano Zapata! Perfect spot for a special occasion especially sitting on the terrace above the river.
Food was delicious with a nice presentation. The restaurant itself was a former house that was remodeled to perfection with a beautiful open kitchen!
I've been back a couple times in the last month and highly recommend it tourists and locals alike. Definitely one of the best if not the best restaurant in PV!
Michelle is an excellent hostess!
Only had the 6 course tasting menu on Christmas Day . The food was very tasty but the courses were so small they could have fit onto one plate and we were still hungry when we left. Each course cost the equivalent of $13.00 US so for three people it was almost $40.00 per course. I have been to many restaurants around the world and the cost for what we were served was ridiculous. We also had one glass of wine for myself and a cocktail each for my two guests and the bill was $340.00 US. The food was good but not worth nearly that much especially in Mexico. We will not be back.
Prix fixe menu for the holidays. Excellent culinary tour de force! Wine pairing was perfectly complimentary.
Todo excelente, lugar hermoso pero si comes en la terraza en época de invierno tienes que venir bien abrigado
Excellent food, ambiance and service!
Very nice greeting at the entrance by the hostess. Service staff very attentive and professional. Food was outstanding. We were a party of four and shared the appetizers - soft shelled crab, tuna sashimi, and large mesquite grilled shrimp - accompanying sauces were soo good. We then shared the short rib, pork belly, and duck breast, again, flavors were over the top. The restaurant is stunning inside as is the terrace where we sat over looking the river. It’s a bit cool later in the evening this time of year so dress appropriately.
Great experience! Quiet atmosphere, attentive staff and great food! Will be back!!
Love the new location by the river. Food was fantastic - great flavors and textures. Service was attentive. Very pretty atmosphere. We’re so happy to have Tintoque closer to where we live.
Great food and service. I like this location better than the marina location.
New location on the river unique in Zona Romantica. Outstanding selections and presentation.
Me encanto su lugar, su comida y su buena onda. Lo recomendare siempre y les deseo mucho éxito.
Excellent, creative high-end dining with fantastic service. River location is amazing. We ordered every single appetizer, two entrees and dessert and all of it was superb. We will be back! Gracias.
Everything was good about our experience with the exception of the space between the tables. The owners have not reduced the number of tables in the restaurant and the tables are too close together during this pandemic.
Therefore, we will not be able to go back until there is a vaccine and it is safe.
Chef Joel and the entire staff are incredible. This restaurant should have a month long wait list. Every dish is creative and delicious. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The new location by the river is so secluded and romantic, and you don’t notice if you’re sitting next to a group of 6 (great for a party). I went first 4 years ago, and have gone back every time I’ve visited Vallarta. This trip I went twice. DO NOT VISIT PV WITHOUT STOPPING HERE!
This is the best restaurant in PV 💕
Probably the most underrated restaurant in Puerto Vallarta. Oh yeah, and the best. Fresh catches, great wine, wonderful atmosphere. Likely having an engagement dinner here in the near future.
Beautiful restaurant on the Rio Cuale. Interior space is quiet and intimate. The terrace that overlooks the river is wonderful for outdoor dining.
Wow....we’re we disappointed. This restaurant was highly recommended by a friend. Unfortunately we had one of the worst meals we’ve ever had in Puerto Vallarta. The service was great in the beginning. Once the order was placed and our wine was opened we never saw our server again. Not to offer water? Pour wine or to apologize for the painfully slow service.it took 35 minutes to be served our entree.
The food was a train wreck. We had their hen (poultry). When I say that it was the driest poultry that ever touched my lips I am understanding the issue. It was so dry that it had a chalky consistency , we also had the rib eye aged steak - it was extremely cold and not cooked to the right temp.
I unfortunately in good conscious I cannot recommend this restaurant
Absolutely delicious find in a beautifully kept historic building. Staff was knowledgeable, thoroughly explained the menu and the food and drinks were unique. A must try spot.
Best restaurant in PV! Ask for a table outside at the river!!
