We ate at Viejo Vallarta. Great view of water. I think its near the seahorse statue.
It's upstairs and there is no elevator. But it's a wonderful Seaview and the food was really good. We took the city bus right near the cruise terminal and it drops you off near the Malecon.
If you go under the Mexico boards/forum on cruise critic ,hopefully you can find lots of information about P.V.

It's one of my favorites here in Mexico, I travel once a year for work to Puerto Vallarta and every time I get a chance I go there.
The menu changes daily depending on the fresh ingredients they got for the day but also some dishes are always there.

We ate at the Blue Shrimp, was excellent.
I ate lunch at the Blue Shrimp on Mexico cruise two years ago. Had garlic shrimp, and it was great. But, a family sitting at the table next to me had a huge platter of GIANT fried shrimp. That's what I'm going to order this time.

It is rated #18 out of 775 restaurants rated by Trip Advisor in PV. Too bad to have something like that happen

Tony, did you experience bad digestive issues " Montezsumas Revenge"? What did you eat in P.V.? At a Princess recommended restaurant? OMG.

What's bad about drinking the water served at Princess recommended reputable P.V. restaurants and other ports of call? How about ice?

So, is it ok to have the fresh made ice cream or fruit slices served from the carts?

I assume that you are just asking the question to stir up the water, but we have watched them in the hot sun slicing up the fruit on those carts and as a result we give those carts a wide berth. We also don't buy sliced fruits from roadside vendors in Southern California.

Princess has no control of a restaurants water.
You take a chance drinking the water/ice in Mexico.
Its bottled water and drinks for us when we stop in ports there.

I have eaten in PV a bunch of times and (knock on wood) never gotten sick. I have been trying to remember the names of some restaurants there, but I can't. The best I can do is "that place on the beach near the pier with the sails." LOL. There is also a good place at the Marina where we saw a crocodile lounging in the water right near our table. You can get some food seafood in PV (well, not crocodile, lol.)

Actually wrong assumption.

Have a nice day, and may you cruise in interesting times.

If I may, I can recommend a very nice little restaurant in the PV area for those tough enough to brave the water.
