    En general la experiencia fue BUENA, el servicio impecable, sin embargo los alimentos no causaron un efecto WOW, quedaron en el calificativo de bueno pero nada sobresaliente. Por el precio de los mismos y por la fama que tiene el restaurante esperaba quedar sorprendido, no fue así, regresaría, sí, siempre y cuando los platillos vayan acorde con el precio, gracias !!

    La cena estuvo espectacular! Todo muy bien. Lo único que me hubiera gustado es que hicieran algo especial ya que festejábamos un cumpleaños. Al llegar nos preguntaron que si celebrábamos algo y quien era el festejado. Con esto esperábamos algo especial, sin embargo no fue así. Fuera de eso todo lo demás está muy rico!

    Absolutely one of the best tasting menus I’ve ever had. Comparable experience to a Michelin star restaurant, the staff were attentive, knowledgeable, and very friendly. The wine pairings perfectly suited the many rich, complex, and exciting dishes. 10/10 a must try experience in puerto Vallarta.

    The food was amazing! Highly recommended ; the ambience was great i celebrated my birthday. The staff was very attentive to everything. I honestly have dined in many place around the world and the way they pairs many dishes with unexpected things like hummus, etc it was amazing a party in your mouth. Portions were great honestly i was kind of full after two appetizers that we shared. Crab croquette amazing, short rib, empanada to die for

    We sat outside and all three of us enjoyed the tasting menu for the night, along with the premium beverage pairing. The food was delicious, beautifully and timely presented, and appropriately portioned to allow us to enjoy every serving. It was an amazing, delightful three hour dinner in a beautiful setting. Tintoque has become the top choice for five-star dining in PV, and Chef Joel continues to invest in making the property just as exceptional as the food. We will continue to return as often as possible.

    Overall, Tintoque is a great place to eat. The appetizers were great, although the entrees were far too rich for our taste. I would guess that the chef was French trained based on the ingredients used and the extreme richness of the food. Again for us, it was too much but for lots of people that’s exactly what they’re going for. What really sold us on the restaurant was the attentive service. There were always multiple staff within eyesight and their attention to detail was impeccable. Their English is also impressive. Overall wonderful!

    The perfect way to start off our PV Pride celebration was a stop at one of the best restaurants in Latin America. I can’t recommend this spot enough at its great location, lovely aura, welcoming staff, and fantastic food. If you’re new here, try the tasting menu. You can’t go wrong with the expertly crafted palette and the wine pairings were equally well suited for the portion.

    My wife and I came here for one of our last meals in Puerto Vallarta. We went for the tasting menu with the premium wine pairings and were not disappointed in the slightest! The whole experience was refined, elegant, and unique. The tomato was probably one of the best things I’ve eaten in my life.

    We were in town on vacation and wanted to try a tasting menu. It did not disappoint. Each course was incredible and interesting. The service was great. I did the wine pairing which was quite expensive. My biggest complaint (minor) is that the wine servings were too small.

    The food, restaurant ambiance, and service are all wonderful. We went on a Sunday night and sat on the terrace. A restaurant or club across the river had very loud music, making it hard to have a conversation. Other than that -- wonderful!
