    This occasion was to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Everything went very smoothly from the time we were greeted until the lady at the desk made arrangements for a taxi. We have been visiting PV for 18 years and currently own a condo here. Whenever we entertain visiting guests, we like to go to Casa Kimberly, and we recommend your restaurant to friends, including someone who was flying here and sitting beside us a couple of days ago. Always a wonderful experience!

    Short taxi ride from downtown Puerto Vallarta takes you to the iconic Casa Kimberley where Richard Burton and Liz Taylor spent time during his filming of "Night of The Iguana". Gorgeous setting with views over the bay. Charming building and guests are encouraged to walk around and take photo's of the place due to it's history. Great service and food. General food bill reasonably priced but we added on a bottle of French Champagne as it was our wedding anniversary so that put the final bill up a good bit, as was to be expected. l would highly recommend Casa Kimberley for it's location, food, drinks (the Chocolate Martini's are to die for) service and overall ambience.

    We have traveled the world and rank this in our top 5 food/dinning experience. From the moment we arrived and walked through the iron gate, we were made to feel special and welcome. A beautiful evening captured by a stunning sunset, romantic ambiance and exquisite food. This should be a Michelin rated restaurant.

    The service is average to below average at best. The servers are young with little customer service experience & with very little personality. Trying to understand them with their masks on makes things very difficult. Our server never checked how the food was once it came to the table.

    It was my sister‘s first time in Puerto Vallarta and her first time at Casa Kimberly! It was definitely another elevated experience, as my husband and I have been here before, something very memorable! Service and the food were impeccable and the conversation we had was very delightful! I highly recommend this place to anyone!

    The food, ambiance, service and overall experience was fantastic. I had the angus filet and my wife had the chile rellenos. Be aware that the restaurant is open air, with little air circulation. We went in August for our anniversary in the early evening at the hottest part of the day and were literally sweating as we ate. It was ok though as the food and everything else made the sweat worth it, but next time I think we might make our reservation for a little later in the evening when it isn’t quite as hot.

    The Iguana was recommended by several friends, so we chose to celebrate our daughter’s 30th birthday there while vacationing in Puerto Vallarta. The experience exceeded our expectations - the ambience, stellar service, amazing food - all of it. Such a special night for us. It is now on our list of favorite restaurants - a must for anyone who goes to PVR and we will be back!❤️

    A perfect view of the mountains and a stunning environment with an awesome backstory! What more could you ask for! The al pastor shrimp tacos were delicious. We got to tour the property and take photos on the beautiful bridge! Service was spectacular and we had no complaints whatsoever. We arrived early at about 5:00 and we got the perfect table. 10/10 would recommend!

    First time dining here. Went with a friend for my birthday. Truly a wonderful experience. The food and service were exceptional! The view of the bay was stunning. The venue is beautiful. Worth the trek up the hill! I was very pleased with their large selection of Mexican wines on their wine list. They actually have one of the largest wine list I have found in PV, and they definitely have the most Mexican wines represented. Very nice to support local.
