Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - When it comes to fine dining, Puerto Vallarta restaurants do it "con gusto," and every year the month of May brings Vallarta Lifestyle's Restaurant Week, a 17-day gastronomical celebration that gives everyone the opportunity to dine at their favorite Banderas Bay area restaurants - and save a bundle!

From May 15th-31st, for the ninth year in a row, some of the most recognized restaurants in Puerto Vallarta will once again be offering special three-course menus, with three choices per course, at fixed prices of either $189 or $299 pesos, not including beverages or gratuities.

Thirty-five restaurants will participate in this year's edition of one of Puerto Vallarta’s most important culinary events, seven of which are participating for the first time: Fusion Gourmet, Kabuki, Zanate Restaurant, and Restaurante y Pizzeria Pinocchio in Puerto Vallarta; Raixes and Sandzibar in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle; and Nicksan in Nuevo Vallarta.

Since its launch by Vallarta Lifestyles Publishing Group in 2005, Vallarta Restaurant Week has captured the hearts and palates of many tourists that choose to visit the Banderas Bay region during the last two weeks of May. It's also a local favorite, since it gives residents the opportunity to treat themselves to fabulous meals at discounted prices.

With so many wonderful restaurants to choose from, and only 17 days to sample the culinary talents of some of Vallarta's finest chefs, it may be hard to decide where to dine, so we've teamed up with Video Diva Productions owner, Laura Gelezunas, to give you a sneak peek at what some of Vallarta's favorite eateries will have on the menu.

We'll be posting Restaurant Week menu previews, some featuring Laura's videos, throughout the month, so keep checking for more information.
