Blanc Blue combines creative twists on classic flavors with outstanding service. The menu had plenty of choices and is very reasonably priced for the quality of the cuisine. There is a great deal of attention to detail in the plating and presentation. Our waiters were above and beyond superb. They were attentive without being intrusive. The overall setting is lovely. We will return for dinner when we get back to Puerto Vallarta

Wonderful dining experience on the patio. We stay in Punta de Mita but made the long trip as we had heard great things about Blanca Blue. Definitely worth the trip. Food was amazing and service outstanding. We will return for sure.

I had been waiting to visit Blanca Blue for years and was surprised to see so few people in the restaurant. Especially after the great first couple courses - both starters for myself and my husband. However, after the mediocre, at best, main course, I started to understand. There was such a dichotomy between the quality & execution of the starters and the main courses, you would think you had changed restaurants. Dessert fell short also. I imagine the ambiance is much better when they have their tiki torches lit as opposed to shining giant flood lights down on the tables. Again, we were confused as to why a place like Garza Blanca wasn't putting on their best show - especially during the high season.

We were greeted nicely and charmingly by the hostess who showed us to our table immediately, and gave us the menus. After waiting for 35 minutes to be acknowledged by any of the waiters we got up and left. Our friends, sitting at another table told us later that they had had an ordinary meal and terrible service. This restaurant is under new management and new chef. There was a vibe in Puerto Vallarta about that. They failed to impress in a town where gastronomy is paramount. Such a spectacular setting, such disappointment.

Blanca Blue was extraordinary, consideralby surpassing even Cafe de Artistes, which has arguably been Puerto Vallarta's best resturant since it opened 18 years ago. My wife and I have been visitng Puerto Vallarta for a week almost annually for 20 years, and we eat most of our evening meals at the best restaurants, regardless of price. Blanca Blue opened in March 2009 immediately overlooking crashing surf with a spectavular view of Los Arcos (tall rock arches out in the water near shore). The restaurant is visually stunning, built in the round with tall windows that can be opened for the fresh air and the surf. Lighting at night was soft, lovely, and dramatic. We sat at an open window and were enchanted. This was one of our top three

Above all else... it's the food!

I've been to a lot of restaurants in Puerto Vallarta in the 37 years I've been coming here.

Last night (Nov 4, 2009) I had dinner at Blanca Blue Restaurant in the Garza Blanca condo/hotel complex. This was the best meal that I've had in years. In my world travels I always remember places where I've had memorable dishes. Blanca Blue Restaurant will be one of those memories, I will recall for a long time.

Every dish I had was FULL of flavour. For anyone that cooks well, you always try and identify ingredients that give a dish that sense of being exceptional. Last night I tried and hopefully guessed how they created the savoury sauces they whipped up.

I had "Lobster & Corn Cob Soup" & "Pork
