    I've read all the threads on Caterers in Puerto Vallarta, but so far I can't seem to find what I'm looking for - hoping some of you ladies can help.

    I want a caterer that can do authentic, old world, upscale mexican cuisine. I'm also a "foodie," so I want something that is really yummy and "wows" me.

    I'm *hopefully* having my rehearsal dinner at El Arrayan. I've eaten there before and was very impressed with their food. Very unique. So, they are not an option for the reception.

    Here are some restaurants that I found on chowhound (a "foodie" website), but never eaten at any of 'em...and not even sure if they do catering:
    Agave Grill
    Hacienda Xochitl
    Red Cabbage Cafe
    Xitomates

    Does anyone have any feedback or recommendations
    On 05.10.10 I will walk down this aisle

      You might try Plush Catering (Boco Bento Resturant Owner). It is more mexican fusion food but the food and presentation is amazing. He does have some more traditional dishes. We did a tasting with him and were wowed. Another bride on here used him for her wedding and her guest said it was not only the best wedding food, but the best food in general they had ever had. His prices are a little higher than the caterer we chose but I would have gone with him if my budget had allowed. PM me if you would like contact information. I have an email for the owner Stewart.

      I think the caterer we are working with is Elite Catering. I don't have any contact info for them but I can probably get it from my wedding coordinator if you need it.

        boca Bento would be a good option as they fairly flexible. You might also look at Spiaggia - they don't advertise traditional cuisine, but they can do it and, when they do, they do it well.

        I love Agave Grill - but don't know if they cater - I forget what other restaurant they own, but they own another restaurant as well. I also love Xitomates - again, not sure if they cater - the owner is really nice, though, and might be willing to cater.

        Which area in PV are you staying at?

        Glad to see you got some recommendations here. I may know of another depending if they do caterings or not. Los Arbilitos? They are amazing with their authentic dishes!

          Thank you for the suggestions!! My WC is working on some options for me...I think she is asking Plush to put together a menu that is more toward what I'm looking for. I did see their current menu, but it was definitely more what I would call "asian - spanish - mediterranean fusion," which I'm sure it great...but not quite authentic Mexican!

          Anyway, I'll wait to see what she comes up with and share if you all are interested!!
          On 05.10.10 I will walk down this aisle
