Year after year, we receive positive feedback from diners that schedule dining out events with friends and loved ones during Restaurant Week, which takes place in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit every year, May 15 – 31. That said, there is always room for improvement! Here are some tips we’ve assembled to ensure that your Restaurant Week experience in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit will be amazing.
Lunch or dinner? Call ahead!
Just about every restaurant offers their special Restaurant Week menu for dinner, but not all of them offer it for lunch. If you are interested in the latter, it always helps to call ahead just to be certain.
Make a reservation.
Many restaurants receive an increased influx of dinner guests, such that it never hurts to call ahead and make a reservation if a restaurant accepts them.
Make it a social event.
Restaurant Week is the perfect event to catch up with friends and loved ones you have not seen in a while. Make a special dinner date with them!
Take a chance.
Reduced prices and special menus are the perfect introduction to an eatery you may not have enjoyed just yet. While you will be inclined to visit restaurants you are already familiar with, Restaurant Week is ideal to try new restaurants.
Spread the word.
Join the talk of the town as locals exchange opinions on Facebook, Trip Advisor and other social media outlets about their Restaurant Week experiences!
Acknowledge good service.
While many restaurants reduce their prices during Restaurant Week, they don’t reduce the quality of their service! If your waiter has provided you with excellent service during your dining experience, please keep this in mind as you consider your service gratuity.
