We visited this restaurant twice in a week. Both times we treated some of our local friends. The food presentation and taste was excellent. The salad bar was nice and fresh and the jumbo breaded shrimp were awesome. The drinks were very good. We loved watching the feeding of the crocodile and the turtles swimming all around. One night we watched a gentleman throw out his net to catch shrimp and tilapia.
The service was great. We are looking forward to our return next spring.

We had the restaurant almost completely to ourselves. The salsa is nice and smoky, could be spicier but the flavor is so good it didn't matter. The shrimp prepared Arrieria style was excellent. The frozen key lime pie was a nice dessert to share. Loved the view and really enjoyed watching the various birds, the iguanas, and the turtles.

First of all the restaurant is beautiful in front of a pond where you see turtles,cranes.The service for us was disappointing. We found this Mexican restaurant too American they even give you the bill in American dollars but also peso. I was in Nuevo Vallarta for 1 month and in all the other restaurants I felt in Mexico but not at The Blue Fish. There is a salad bar which was good. I had the poblano shrimp that we're not very tasty but one of my friends chose the Portuguese shrimps and they we're excellent. The presentation of the food is very nice.

The setting is on a small lake which is a nice change. The drinks were fine. The Caesar salad is made right at your table from scratch and mixed in large wooden bowls. The waiter puts on a bit of a show. The entree items come out on a cart to show you what's available. Be sure to ask which seafood is fresh. We found a larger lobster tail that was frozen and from the Caribbean. The Red Snapper as a whole fish was large, but the fillets were small. The sea bass as well was a smaller piece than at other restaurants we were at. The meal does have one trip to a well equipped salad bar.

Someone should have a flaming coffee just to see the performance that last about five minutes. Much of the liquor burns off so there isn't much in the coffee but the production is worth the cost.

A nice location for diner.
