#7 Roberto's Seafood and Steak Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Inching my way closer to the top of my restaurant mountain with Robert's at #7. I know...Puerto Vallarta is technically not in the country. But it's flooded with American tourists, and Roberto's is so good, I just couldn't leave it off my list. I discovered Roberto's on my honeymoon while in the old town part of Puerto Vallarta. For many years, this place topped my charts based on the Lobster Rockefeller I consumed. Why? Oh, I don't know...how does lobster sauteed in wine, with spinach, mushrooms and cheese sound? This dish is truly amazing. I can still picture it almost eight years later. I savored every bite, knowing full well I may never be back there again. I had soup that night as well. I remember is was great, but other than that, can't offer many details. You can get any seafood under the sun at Roberto's...scallops, red snapper, crab, shrimp...you name it. Roberto's also offers standard Mexican food plates, hot and cold tapas, as well as choice steaks. They even have paella. Paella is never a bad thing. One day I will go back to PV. I will get the Lobster Rockefeller, and life will be good.
