The ninth annual edition of Restaurant Week is two weeks away! This year’s Restaurant Week event features 35 participating restaurants and, as in years past, will be offered May 15 - 31. Located in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit, participating restaurants will offer a special, three-course menu (with three choices per course) at a reduced priced of $189 or $299 pesos (drinks and tips not included).
The event was launched by Vallarta Lifestyles Publishing Group in 2005, inspired by similar festivals that take place in many important destinations worldwide, from New York to London. Since its inception, Restaurant Week has captured the hearts and preference of many tourists that choose to visit our destination around Restaurant Week, and also locals, who use the affordable menus as an opportunity to treat themselves to new dining experiences.
In addition, the event has been favorably received by established restaurants that participate year after year, along with new restaurants that have found that participating in Restaurant Week can noticeably increase their presence in the minds and palates of those attending the event. This year, we are proud to welcome seven restaurants that are participating in the event for the first time: Fusion Gourmet (Amapas), Kabuki (Emiliano Zapata), Zanate Restaurant (Emiliano Zapata), Restaurante y Pizzeria Pinocchio (El Centro), Raixes (La Cruz de Huanacaxtle), Sandzibar (La Cruz de Huanacaxtle) and Nicksan (Nuevo Vallarta).
Restaurant Week joins many other important cultural events that take place in Banderas Bay during the month of May, such as the anniversary of Puerto Vallarta’s foundation both as a city, and as a municipality, and proudly celebrates the many memorable experiences that can be expected by visitors that choose to favor our destination during this time. Restaurant Week acknowledges the support received from Puerto Vallarta’s Municipal Government, Vallarta Opina Milenio, the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Bureau and the Riviera Nayarit Tourism Bureau.
