Restaurants, Cafés and Taco Private Chefs

Vallarta has come a long way in the quality of the restaurants and cafés.  At one time the best you could hope for was lots of atmosphere.  Now you can find places with excellent food too.  There are hundreds of restaurants in this town, many very good, but we limit our list to those of general interest to the gay visitor.  Many of these places are gay owned, especially gay friendly or just in the gay part of town.

A quick note about service: In Mexico a restaurant meal is an event, so the waiters would never think of rushing you on by delivering the check before you ask for it.  Sometimes this isn't so obvious to our tourist friends who sit at their table wondering why they don't bring the bill!  Please be sure to tip generously if the service is good, as all restaurant help gets paid only 4 dollars per day, and they all really depend on your gratuities. Typical gratuities are 15%.
