Best people-watching in town
Located in Zona Romantica on the main gay strip, Olas Altas, this lesbian-owned cocktail bar and bistro is popular with boys and girls, gays and straights, locals and tourists. Make sure you get there in time for the festivities -- happy hour starts promptly at 5 pm (2-for-1 margaritas and martinis) and their outdoor seating is prime real estate.

      Great happy hour and you have to get there early to get a table. Drinks are good and served quickly. Love the location near Mecurio Hotel and the old town strip.

      My favorite happy hour is at Apaches
      As a frequest visitor to PV, you can find me most nights of my vacation at a table along the sidewalk in front of Apache's, at least for happy hour. The owners and staff are wonderful friends and take great care of everyone, whether it's your first time or you've been showing up for years.

      Vallarta's own "Cheers."
      The food is good, but the reason to head to Apaches is to hang out with "the gang." Regulars pack the prime seats on the street early and fast, but there's almost always a way to wiggle in somewhere. It's expected that you will sit down at the same table with strangers and introduce yourself. If you are inside the bar, beware of no air conditioning. But it's worth the sweat to sit inside with the bar's co-owner and bartender, Dutch born Endra. She's like a Dutch Ethel Merman, calling everyone "Dahhhling" in a booming, belting voice and introducing patrons to each other. Great place for meeting a lot of ex-pat locals and snow birds who are in the know about how gay Vallarta rolls.

      EXCELLENT FOOD AND MARGARITAS
      I have been coming here for the past year and their Hawaiian Chicken, Mediteranean Meatballs and Chicken Satay are delicious. The Margaritas are strong but with 2 for 1 Happy Hour drinks between 5 and 8 pm how can you go wrong. The Servers Andres, Chuy and Freddy are very friendly and service oriented.

      Best food in Vallarta
      This is absolutely the best place to eat and drink in Puerto Vallarta. We always stop by on our yearly trip and visit with the owners and the wait staff. If you are looking for great food and friendly staff this is a nice place to hang out.

      Hates it

      Are you a TOQ? Here's the place for you!
      Every day at 5:00 sharp, Apaches hosts every tired old queen in town. You can even bring your dog. He'll get a seat; you may not. Apaches is another tired PV institution that doesn't have the sense to die. Drinks are overpriced and hideous (the Friend of Dorothy was simply undrinkable), seating is guarded for the TOQs and their court, unless you arrive a bit early and stake your claim (4:45 at the latest if you want outside). If you get stuck inside, you'll have to shriek at your friends to be heard over the 2nd tier TOQs who didn't rate an outside table. That's really all this place has to offer. I won't be back.
