      Nicole recommended El Arrayan, have you contacted them? We were close to having ours at Los Burros Bar, the prices were cheap and it was on the sand (literally!) but we wanted to get away from the beach so we switched it up.
      Asian-Mexican fusion?? really? Hmm, I guess we only had the tortilla soup & a margarita so we didn't pay much attention... figured it would be more "mexican" food...

      We passed by Los Burros Bar - way more informal, not exactly what we were looking for. Looks more like a great place to grab a beer KWIM?

      Nicole also recommended El Arrayan to us - unfortunately we never made it there to try it out! Booo

      We would like A/C tho now that I think about it.... I'm assuming El Arrayan is in a closed restaurant w, A/C??

      We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

      We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

        I've never been to Daquiri Dicks so I can't say what they really serve, but the menu is stuff like Asian chicken salad, grilled fish w/tempura vegetables, mahi mahi in wasabi batter, etc. They have lobster tacos, bbq ribs, mole, it's kind of all over the map. Maybe good but it sounded like shi-shi places where I live and we wanted something less complicated and not like the U.S....lol

        Los Burros is definitely informal, on the sand, kickback kind of place. It's a great place to grab a beer or take over with your guests only and drink and eat Mexican food on the beach - that's what they serve. It will feel like Mexico and not L.A. or Miami or whatever. Totally casual so not for guests who want crisp linens and fancy waiters, you know?

        Never been to El Arrayan but it's gorgeous from the website. There is an outside eating area and inside I believe, that is probably air conditioned.

              And have I mentioned Barcelona? Hahahahahaha

              I swear you guys that our guests rave about that as much as Las Caletas for the food and ambiance. Many of our guests spent the whole time in PV on the beach, including our wedding, so getting to chill in a neighborhood above the city and eat killer food gave them a different perspective of PV.

              Off the tapas kick

                I would love to do the Barcelona Tapas place, but their pricing was a little too high for us. Boo!!

                  El Arrayan is delicious. We went there in April after seeing in several places that it was voted Best in PV. The black bean empanadas were divine. It's an enclosed restaurant, however, it has open-air section in the middle where the tree grows (which is the origination of the restaurant's name). There are also covered seating sections, however, I do not think they had A/C. We both loved it there! Just a couple blocks off the malecon.

                  Something else to check out is La Palapa: Puerto Vallarta Fine Dining Restaurant - La Palapa
                  Haven't eaten there but have heard wonderful things - we booked the Romantic Dinner on the beach for our final night in PV after the wedding.

                  Our WD is at Barcelona Tapas. Been there two or three times - great food - great atmosphere! Can't say enough good things about the place.

                    La Palapa is pricey too.

                      Yeah it was more than we intended on spending, plus you have way more guests than us...I don't even want to do that math! You'll find a great spot, no doubt!
