While the internationally-influenced food at The River Café is quite good, it's the setting of the restaurant that wins raves among visitors. Set along the banks of the Rio Cuale, the open-air restaurant is surrounded by tropical plants. At night, it's especially romantic, as candles flicker in the dark.
If you're looking to romance someone, the gazebo table, sitting right on the river, is a pretty good spot.
Situated on the Cuale River, River Café is one of Puerto Vallarta's top spots for a romantic meal. It's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and guests with dietary restrictions or preferences are glad to have gluten-free and vegetarian menus. Most items on the menu feature locally sourced fish, seafood, fruits and vegetables. Ask for a table in the gazebo if you're keen to enjoy the fine weather and outdoor views.
