So disappointing.. Mind you this has not been the first time here, we live here
Last night went with friends.
We ordered rib eye, truffle fries and asperagus. No dinner plates, eat on the appetizer plates. Food arrived, everything was cold, sent back fries for fresh and hot, they warmed up in microwave. The drinks were sub par.
I don't know whats happened here! Spoke to manager all he said was sorry.
From 5 stars down to 1 star. They were not even social distancing.. They blamed everything on covid 19, BS..
we left hungry.. will not return..

We've been coming to Puerto Vallarta for years and have never had a dinner experience quite like La Madalena! From the impeccable service of the entire staff, comfortable seating, energetic vibe and mouthwatering food and drinks - we were completely blown away! Everything was perfect and we can't wait to return during our next visit to PV! That carrot cake is next level!

Food & service was excellent. From the drinks to the ribeye, shrimp, mushrooms, queso fundido, etc. Every item was top notch & tasty. Service was above & beyond. One of the best meals that we have had. For us this kind of service was a bit too much. I’m sure most guests would love the attention they give to each table. We will come again the next time that we visit PV

From the minute we were seated at our table on the outside veranda, we were looked after for our every need and some from the staff at this restaurant! The team here aims to please every client that enters and boy do they please! All I need to say for this review is this is the best dining experience my wife and I have ever had, and we’ve dined pretty much around this world! The food was perfection at its best. Do not hesitate to try this place at least once!

The really GREAT! -- Tuna sashimi tostada! Maybe the BEST single plate that I have had in our 75 days here in PV this season!!! Super recommended!!! There is a tapa for anybody!!!
My Cadillac Margarita was mediocre, however, my fault -- I didn't say anything -- I'm sure, if I would have said something -- I'm certain they would have tried their best to make it right -- Lots of service --

Beautiful place to dine with outstanding service. Menu could be more expansive and descriptive. Not really worth the value of what you pay for the food however the service is definitely amazing. It was nice for a celebratory event however not sure we would return as it was really just too expensive.

This restaurant is next level! My husband and I visited La Madalena with friends this past weekend. We were super impressed with it in every way - food, service, ambiance and overall experience. From the drink cart that comes out and makes a special cocktail to the fresh Guac and Salsa cart made right in front of you to the waiters who were so responsive and helpful - every detail was perfect. We have eaten all over the world and this was quite possibly one of the best places we have ever dined. The food choices are plentiful and the taste was superb. La Madalena is a MUST for your restaurant list when in Puerto Vallarta. We live in Chicago where the restaurant scene is plentiful and we dine out often and this topped all of the restaurants we love and know. You can tell they care and want you to enjoy your experience with them. Thank you!

Excellent service, amazing food (we tried shrimp and fish dishes, all tasty, nothing overcooked) and the cocktails were innovative, restrained on the sugar and with a local twist. We took our 4m old daughter and were treated very well. Highly recommended. Only downside I guess is the location, besides a main road and no views even though youre close to the water.

I was with 3 friends that had never been before to celebrate 2 birthdays! Everyone loved the food, the service, the respect and we all determined that we didn’t just dine we had an experience that was most pleasing! Was one of the most pleasant dinners we’d ever shared. The unfortunate part was there was a loud bachelorette party and a loud gentlemen’s party that did disrupt a bit. The staff were a bit annoyed as usually the ambiance is more dignified. They did their best to make it not affect us! The food was amazing! The service was amazing! My friends said never before have they exited a restaurant and been hugged, greeted or hand shaken by so many lovely staff members! We will definitely be back because we enjoyed it so much!

Best here is the creamed spinach. The grilled octopus was hard and chewy. Chicken breast not memorable. Sea bass passable. Truffle fries not sufficiently cooked and covered with powdered parmesan cheese which is full of cellulose. Iceberg wedge simple enough, yet spoiled by the poor quality of the blue cheese dressing from a bottle. Very unimpressive restaurant.

I was initially thrown off by all the reviews mentioning that the service was a little *too* attentive, but the place seemed nice and the menu was intriguing. That said, I'm glad we went and I am glad I was prepared for very attentive service.

Huge, stylish room with about the largest TV I've seen. We were seated immediately and offered water and drinks. Nice touch with the drinks cart. You have the option of tableside guacamole, which was delicious. We were a two- top and the portion was a bit large for us. Great caesar salad. The entrees were the star of the show... my husband had crispy pork belly tacos and I had jumbo shrimp with mezcal. Both were perfection.

We were pleasantly surprised by the bill...a great value for the quality and quantity of food.

About the service. Yes, someone attended to every wish immediately. But it was delightful! It was a refreshing change from the all inclusive where we stayed, where we felt like we were an imposition. Worth spending the $.

It’s a lovely place to dine for fine dining and yet still affordable. Our food was superb and Marco was a most excellent server and spoke excellent English. There is one server assigned to each table and sometimes that can be a bit overwhelming, much better than lacking service but perhaps a little less attention would have been a bit more comfortable.

Had a great time overall and the staff was great. The only negative and it is one of culture is the smoking while people are eating. It is hard to fully appreciate the flavour of the food. If i could suggest is maybe ask to create a non smoking area and ask the patron on the terrasse to be courteous and smoke away from the table. Doing so would make the experience at the restaurant even greater!

Took 8 family here and we had a great time.

The food and drink here was fantastic. My husband ordered the tuna, soft shell and pork tacos and liked the tuna tacos the best. The salsas are all extremely delicious and even better mixed together and added to the food.
The salads, chicken, steaks and risotto were all very delicious. The drinks were equally as good. The drink menu is original and inventive. We had several mezcal drinks.

The servers were very friendly, gracious and attentive. I did not receive the guacamole I ordered but it was a busy night and we had a large group. I did not leave hungry.

The ambiance is great with the wood panels, cool bar, huge windows and energetic vibe.. We found the gigantic TV screen overpowering though - bright and too distracting (videos of people, Adrenalin activities, etc that pulls attention from guests interacting with one another) from an otherwise lovely and more upscale atmosphere.
If you’re going to keep the screen, we suggest turning down the brightness and showing beautiful landscape photos as an interesting background). This restaurant is too nice to treat it like a sports bar.

You will have a great time here - highly recommend,
