    Hi everyone - can anyone recommend some good locations for a welcome/rehearsal dinner? I realize our wedding is still far out, but we are planning a site visit to look at resorts on Feb. and I'd also like to visit any recommended spots at the same time.

    Thanks, and Happy Turkey Day!

      We are having our welcome dinner at the Riu Vallarta resort since its all-inclusive. We are paying for our private reception so it works out better for us to just choose a retaurant for everyone to meet at.


      Also, use the search button and you will find tons of recommended locations

      HI Trisha, happy turkey day to you as well :)

      What type of restaurant/location are you interested in? DO you want a small venue where you can host a private welcome dinner? Are you interested in a certain type of menu? I know of a great little Mexican restaurant in the older PV area. I forgot the name but I'll look it up on the card I have when I get home. They do great Mexican authentic cuisine and really tend to their customers. They even make the guacamole right in front of your table. Oh one more thing, are you interested in a live music at all?

        Live music would be fabulous. Great idea. We would likely have about 40 guests, so I would prefer a smaller spot or a space that can be blocked off for a private party. Thank you!

          Check out Barcelona Tapas. The view/atmosphere is amazing! It's four stories and you can rent out the entire 4th floor. We are in the process of reserving the 4th floor for our rehearsal dinner.

            We looked into Los Burros Bar - super casual, on the beach, budget friendly. Daquiri Dicks and Fajita Republic. Los Burros Bar and Daquiri Dicks were responsive. Fajita Republic, not so much. But I know Celina (Soontobemrse) had good luck at Fajita Republic.

            In the end we didn't have a WD because I waited so long to plan it, oops! However I do have a contact person and some menus/pricing for Los Burros Bar and Daquiri Dicks if you want it.

                Julia could answer this better, but I'm shooting her wedding in Jan. and she's having her rehearsal dinner here. Looks awesome.

                  Actually, Yari mght be the one who can answer this one better -- she's already had her rehearsal dinner at Vista Grill! But she gave it a great review! And the woman in charge of special events, Lily, has been fabulous about getting in touch and arranging a special prix fixed menu for everyone. We've even discussed table arrangements, decorations, etc. I can give an update again at the end of January!

                    Tara,
                    I would be interested in the info you received from Burros Bar (one of my fave spots on the beach in PV!) and Daquiri Dicks... We are looking for a spot for our rehearsal reception...

                    Thanks!
                    Jenn
