The River Café sits on the banks of the Rio Cuale in the most beautiful and romantic setting in Puerto Vallarta. It is definitly one of the hidden treasures of the bay area.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Every year the month of May brings Vallarta Lifestyle's Restaurant Week to the Banderas Bay area. The event, which runs from the 15th through the 31st, is in it's eighth year and 45 of the finest restaurants from around Banderas Bay will be participating. None finer than The River Café.

The River Café sits on the banks of the Rio Cuale in the most beautiful and romantic setting in Puerto Vallarta. This sophisticated restaurant, owned by Margarito Larios and Eva Sánchez, is definitely one of the hidden treasures of the bay area.

Enjoy the live music while you peruse the special Restaurant Week menu as the candles flicker on the glamorous tables that line the river bank on the restaurant's multilevel terrace. Cuisine and nature meld exquisitely at River Café.

Your dining experience in this natural paradise begins with soup, salad, or spring grill; is followed up by your selection from the four original entrees prepared by their creative chef; and finishes sweetly with one of their decadent desserts.

All of the delicious cuisine is presented elegantly and served professionally with every attention given to detail. During Restaurant Week all of this can be experienced at The River Café for the special price of $299 pesos. (Beverages and gratuities not included.)
