From May 15-31st, dining out in Puerto Vallarta is not only more fun, but also much more affordable! For the seventh year in a row, Vallarta Lifestyles' Restaurant Week is once again offering you the chance to dine at some of Banderas Bay's most recognized restaurants with savings of up to 50%!
|Restaurant Week Side Trip|
|After you've enjoyed the Restaurant Week menu at your favorite Vallarta restaurant, stop by Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates, which is open until 10 pm for those desiring a chocolate fix. Click HERE for more info.|
As in previous years, Restaurant Week participants will entice locals and tourists to explore their creative cuisine by way of fixed price menus that offer diners at least three choices for each course (appetizer, entree and dessert) at the fixed price of either $189 or $299 pesos per person, not including beverages or tips.
Thirty-eight restaurants will participate in the 2011 edition of Vallarta Restaurant Week, an increase from last year’s 31 participants. Many venues will also be featuring live entertainment to enhance your dining pleasure.
With so many wonderful restaurants to choose from, and only 17 days to sample the culinary talents of some of Puerto Vallarta's finest chefs, it may be hard to decide where to dine so, throughout the 17 day event, PV restaurant reviewer Gary R. Beck will be taking small groups of food lovers to participating dining establishments, where they will sample at least three choices for each course.
After enjoying the offerings at each restaurant they visit, Gary will write a review based on the group's opinions and share the information with you right here on BanderasNews. In some cases, Laura Gelezunas of Video Diva Productions will tag along to shoot exclusive videos of the group's dining experience.
If you would like to be part of Gary's group, send an email to garyrbeck1(at)yahoo.com. Only the first 7 people to request participation on any certain night will be accepted, and reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
Dinner reservations are being made for 7:30 pm each evening, and as soon as the restaurants he'll be visiting are booked the dates will be listed on the chart below. If you would like to join Gary's group on the listed dates, Click HERE to send him an email TODAY!
We'll also be posting new dates, Gary's reviews and Laura's videos throughout Vallarta Restaurant Week, so keep checking back for the latest news and updates.
