Amazing food and staff!!!
The only complain is they only allow adults and kids over 12. they may need to change this to over 9 years old since kids over 9 can behave vey well in this kind of environment.

This restaurant epitomizes why you need to leave your resort to get a fine dining experience in Vallarta. Meh, at best

Prime rib eye steak was very, very good and accompanied by a nice selection of potatoes and vegetables. The lamb tamal was very small and the sweetness of the sauce was an unwelcome surprise. The salad wasn't worth mentioning. Ambience is lovely and service is stellar.

I went to Gaviotas to enjoy a 7-course dinner with a friend while we were in Puerto Vallarta. We discovered that not only is the food outstanding but that the service is the cornerstone of their success. Mario Mendoza, the manager and mixologist started the show with a traditional cocktail that was just as smooth as the waves off the shore of Vallarta. What came next blew our minds! Chef Oscar used the highest standards of cooking so we could sample the very best of Mexican gastronomy.
An edible menu was presented to us, as a prelude of a dinner full of surprises. This menu made of thin wafer was a metaphorical gesture to those moments when hunger has overtaken me and I’ve wanted to eat the pages in my hands while waiting.
The surprises didn’t end there! Chef Oscar would come to our table and describe each dish, you could hear the passion when he spoke about his creations. Each course was carefully crafted and paired with a fine Mexican wine. The great connection between Mario and Oscar made the dinner a success story in my book of travels. I won’t go into details of every dish because I want everyone who visits Puerto Vallarta to enjoy this trip through the best ingredients and dishes Mexico has to offer.
One thing I will highlight is the digestif Mr. Mendoza created for me with Chicatana ants and Mazapán. It was a piece of art! A chef d'oeuvre that was the perfect touch to end a marvelous dinner.
I would like to thank Sinahi, our hostess, for having the table with the best view of the sunset ready for us.
Especial thanks to Captain Cueto for his amazing service and to our waiters, Rigoberto, Alfredo, and Luis. You guys are awesome!

The service is super slow and the food portions are too small. The price of the food and taste is way too high.

The duck was disappointing. There was no skin on it( crispy) it tasted like it was cooked in a crockpot.
I did not like my red snapper- it was bland and tough. Did not care for the black sauce that came with it.

Awful! We made reservations for NYE dinner and took two cabs to get to the restaurant. When we arrived, we were told the restaurant was closed. They tried to tell us we had made the reservation for the wrong night until I showed them the confirmation. They blamed Open Table. No apology. So we had no dinner plans, had to take multiple cabs to another random restaurant and this ruined our New Years Eve.

The two soups we ordered were outstanding: the green, Aztec soup, and the seafood soup. (The menu uses Nahuatl-language names for all items, so no one can remember the names).

The dessert was also excellent: burnt-popcorn ice cream!

The two main courses were very disappointing, however. The turkey was too dry. The lobster tail was very overcooked. It was actually hard to cut and very chewy. It was innovative in that it was deep fried, and I'm aware that Latin America typically serves seafood cooked more than in North America/Europe, but the seafood soup had perfectly cooked (rare) seafood in it. So I know they know how to cook seafood.

So, overall, a mixed experience.

Restaurant would not acknowledge our reservation with Open Table, insisted on a dress code and was an awful experience. Food sent back.
