    Ok, so I guess I never wrote a review for this... oops!

    Si Senor- A+
    We hosted a groom's dinner (rehersal dinner minus the rehersal) at Si Senor in the old town part of Puerto Vallarta. It far exceeded our expectations!!!!
    Kind of a funny story how we found the location. I pretty much left this up to DH because as you know, brides have enough going on with the wedding itself! So DH went in to get his hair cut about a month before the wedding and the hairdresser had just returned from PV and told him that we had to go eat there! He asked if it would be a good place to have a dinner and she thought it would. She gave us the manager's name and said he was really nice.
    So we passed this information on to Lindsay, our WC at Playa Fiesta and she was kind of skeptical so she went and spoke with the manager on one of her trips to town- she came back and said "YES! I think it will be great!"
    We rented a bus to take all of our guests and if you have the $$ in your budget I highly recommend this... it was really fun to have everyone together and it was a total bonding thing. The shuttle bus dropped us off about a block away which I thought was strange... I had heels on after all. But it was such a cool walk (5 min) on an old cobblestone street (Sidewalk) and when you walk into the restaurant there it is open and tropical. The hostess was dressed in traditional Mexican dress and they were very welcoming.
    We thought we would just be in a corner of the restaurant but they gave us our own room IN THE FRONT of the restaurant with plenty of windows overlooking town, a wet bar, restrooms, flowers and lots of room. Very nice!
    They set it up as 2 long tables which was very nice. Greeted our guests with margaritas, chips and salsa as they got settled. They made guac at the table. We ordered some kind of per plate deal and they served us everything from fajitas, tacos, chorizo, chicken, steak, shrimp and lobster. It was BEYOND impressive. The seafood came on these metal ships that had candles on the inside so it looked like the ship was on fire! Super cool.
    Then, they had entertainment come in to play for tips. There was an excellent mariachi band, and tribal dancers with beautiful headdress. Then at the end of the night you could see fireworks from the window!!!
    The manager was always present making sure that we had what we needed. Service was wonderful and presentation was top notch.

    ***We really looked like rock stars pulling out all of the stops! But the truth is we happened upon this gem and did no work other than approve the menu and the price! How often does that happen? My in-laws foot the bill and though it wasn't exactly cheap... it was sooo much less than it was worth! We would never get that experience in the states for close to that price. My in-laws were extatic and we gave all the credit to them:) Everyone is STILL TALKING ABOUT IT A YEAR LATER!!!
    So I guess I highly recommend it. Let me know if you have any questions:) I'll post pics in a bit.

            Hi Kate,
            Awww shucks! I wish I had known you hosted a dinner at Si Senor! I tried many many time to contact them to get pricing. No one ever responded or I would get someone on phone who didn't speak english and then he would hang up on me. Bummer. I really loved this place when I visited...so we were hoping to plan something there. We ended up having to choose another place, Daiquiri Dicks. I hope its as good/fun!
            So far 68 RSVP's and 56 people are booked to stay at the resort!
