I don’t know why we have waited so long to visit this restaurant. We enjoyed the water view while eating the most delicious food. This was one of my favorite meals in puerto Vallarta and that’s saying a lot!

The food was outstanding the roasted cauliflower appetizer was amazing. The fact that a lot of their entrees can be ordered as a 1/2 portion makes the restaurant a must try. Our server Antonio was one of the best waiters we have encountered here in PV since we’ve
been coming here for the past 12 years..

The food and service was very good. As a long time customer I enjoy the restaurant.
However on this visit we were given a table with metal chairs. Very uncomfortable.
I complained and finally got a normal cushioned chair.
Please inform the restaurant of my critique.

We went there for Valentines dinner ( have been before) but realized this place is living off the reputation of its sister restaurant Trios- but without attention to detail and focus on its customers and culinary techniques
The menu is dated and is the chef is still mixing numerous ingredients on plates with no attention to the simpatico required between flavours and textures . it’s time to simplify the menu - focus on more modern food trends andy ramp up the service quality

We had an outstanding dinner at Vitea. Food and service were excellent, and location is very enjoyable, especially watching sunset. Appreciated owner/chef’s personal visit to our table to discuss my food allergy. Definitely a must dinner spot every time we’re in PV.

Nice beach location however the food did not live up to other Puerto Vallarta food experiences. The vegetables were overcooked and the chimichuri and pesto were mediocre.

We’ve been visiting Viteas every year since it’s opening and have never been disappointing. A broad menu with many different flavors and tastes. Each are prepared and presented with care. I would especially recommend service by Antonio or Nabor. Finally, the site provides a wonderful spot to view a beautiful Puerto Vallarta sunset.

Wonderful location right off the Malecon of PV. We’ve been coming here for years because of the good service and consistently good food. Recommend the beef tips, the shrimp and gnocchi, and the whole red snapper when it’s the special of the day!

When you are walking the Malecon in PV, you have got to have dinner at Vitea along the shore. The fish entrees are good, the pork tenderloin was very good, and the beef tips are excellent! Service is good along with live music, a lovely sunset and the soothing sound of the nearby waves. A short walk after dinner to the Malecon amphitheater provides another stage of live entertainment. Perfect evening !

Haven’t been here for a few years. But I will be back soon. Had gazpacho first: huge portion, very good, too much cream for my tastes. But the best was the grilled snapper with rice and vegetables. It was so delicious! The fish was tender; the sauce perfect. Had the small portion. And after the large gazpacho portion, I was glad I had chosen the small portion.
Definitely planning a repeat meal here this season!

Reservation for 6:15 but unremarkable meal finally served at 8 p.m. You needed to work to get waiter’s attention and had to ask repeatedly for water, where our dinner was, etc. Though they were eager to sell you drinks. Nice location for walking the malecon but won’t go back. Can’t recommend Vitae unless you want to stop for drinks.

Wonderful place to eat and enjoy the Malecon. Usually restaurants with a view and touristy are not up to par for food. This was different. The food was good, the view wonderful, the music enjoyable, the service excellent. Would highly recommend this place for those visiting Puerto Vallarte and wanting to be on the ocean plus enjoy good food!
