Ok, I have to say my new favourite restaurant in Old Town, Puerto Vallarta is 116 Pulpito Gastro Bar (you can find them on Facebook). With a location nestled right in the heart of Zona Romantica, this little restaurant serves up delicious tapas and pizza, not to mention great service too. Small and cozy, the little gastro bar seats about 15 inside and then double outside. The walls are an eclectic grey, black and white mexican tile and the bar has seating if you prefer over the tables. I enjoy sitting outside on the patio where I can watch people coming back from the beach or listening to the live music that sometimes is present.
Holly and I decided to hit the gastro bar for our dinner during our stay over Easter. First, we found our spot on the patio and ordered up some Sol cervezas. We were pleasantly surprised to have some complimentary hummus and bread sticks!
Our next course we ordered were some tempura and a waldorf salad. Both were excellent.
The pizzas are all made to order where you pick your toppings. I don’t recall exactly what we ordered on ours, salami, black olives and basil I think it was. Anyway, as you can see it looked amazing….and tasted just as good as it looked. We were pretty full so we boxed up half to have for the lunch the next day.
I love this little place and will return again and again. Although, I have to say I wasn’t impressed the very first time I went. The gastro bar had just opened and I’m not quite sure what it was. Victor, on the other hand, quite liked it and I’m glad he had us return.
