    First things first, if you’re coming here from Puerto Vallarta, make sure you have a ride back! Pay the extra dollars for your driver to come back in two hours or wait for you, if not, you’ll be paying a taxi 1700MXN just to drive you back to Puerto Vallarta. With that being said, this place is so worth it! I’m an avid foodie, with no dietary restrictions or allergies, coming from Orange County, California, sooo obviously I had to go with their tasting menu. Every single plate was “muy rico” they start you off with light tasting plates and slowly move you towards creamy and heavy. I was so full at the end, I could barely finish my dessert. However, I did put a dent in it though :) All the staff were very attentive, friendly, spoke English very well, and great suggestive recommendations.

    This was a special date night dinner for my wife and I. The knowledge of our server, Jonathan, of the menu, ingredients, flavor profile combinations and pairings was outstanding. The kitchen delivered amazing flavor, texture and temperature on our apps and main courses and the bar with creative mixed drinks that complimented our dining experience.

    Excellent food that is very unique. It is at the bottom of the hill on the right when coming from the resorts (St. Regis, The Four Seasons, etc.). It is a 36 minute walk from the St. Regis or a 9 minute ride (which costs $9 for the St. Regis car).

    Fuimos con mucha ilusión a este restaurante. Los platillos son buenos pero creo que pueden mejorar. Pedimos un sope, una pasta y un plato de curry verde. El sope y la pasta tienen un sabor bueno. Pedimos el curry con pescado (robalo) pero al traerlo a la mesa, el olor a pescado era muy fuerte por lo que pedí que lo retiraran, sin probarlo. Me cambiaron el plato completo por uno con camarones. Estuvo bueno pero no exquisito, creo que pueden reducir un poco el sabor del curry verde, para mi gusto, era demasiado concentrado. La atención es muy amable y cordial, pero sugiero estar más al pendiente de los comensales porque tuvimos que pedir, varias veces, que nos trajeran pan. La música de un saxofonista fue muy agradable y a un nivel de sonido que no molesta.

    What a treat! We’ve been coming to punta mita for 10 years and we didn’t try it in 2020 as we were careful about getting Covid but we decided to try it this year and boy were we pleasantly surprised. By far the best restaurant in Punta Mita. The flavors were amazing, the staff including our waiter was very knowledgeable and personable. We are returning again tonight and plan to try their sister restaurant Zicatella as well.

    Waiter was not great and very entitled. Actually got challenged on my tip amt after he forgot to include it on the total bill and I asked him to include it…actually I think he thought I was just going to tip him on the side instead of the entire staff…even though it was really a staff effort as he was not readily checking in on us..then he challenged me on tbe amt I tipped…I’m a good tipper and have never encountered this anywhere before. AnywaY, amazing food and Hector himself checked in on us..very humble man and amazing chef! Just be weary of the waiters…

    I just had a wonderful dinner with friends at Hector's Kitchen.  Everything was perfect.  The restaurant is very clean with a pleasant and understated modern decor.  The staff is attentive, thoughtful and very professional. Best of all, the food is excellent.  The Snook catch of the day was mouthwatering, cooked perfectly.  The grilled octopus was tender and flavorable in a house made red mole sauce.  The grilled Romaine appetizer was unusual and delightful. The entire menu is eclectic, all with Mexican flavors and themes while inventively mixed and prepared.  It is not a typical resort dining experience but rather something that could be found in a major city.   Highly recommended.

    The food at Hectors Kitchen was delicious! Each dish was meticulously crafted with a beautiful presentation matching the elevated flavors of their regional cuisine. I could taste and sense the sense of Oaxacan culinary history and authentic flavor in Hectors mole sauce. Which, was up there as one of the best I have ever tasted with layers of flavors coming through from the first taste and through each bite.
