Located just 25 minutes away from Puerto Vallarta's downtown, Le Kliff offers exquisite international fine dining cuisine. Nestled on the southern edge of Banderas bay, the second largest bay in the world, Le Kliff features the best panoramic views of the Pacific coast.
Went to Puerto Vallarta right before Thanksgiving and stayed at a resort. Although it was all inclusive, we wanted to have an outside dining experience and after scanning reviews, we chose Le Kliff. It did not disappoint. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the hostess...as we marvelled at the giant palapa roof. We were showed to our table, which had a breathtaking view of the ocean and surrounding area and we were encouraged to walk the grounds.
We followed a trail downward to a couple of cute areas, one of which had a swing where you could swing out towards the ocean. Amazing.
We took our seats and scanned the menu. Most items had interesting write-ups and ingredients, like grasshoppers and caviar foam. We were given complimentary tacos to start - shredded pork on corn tortillas dyed black with squid ink. Very good.
Ordered a couple drinks - tequila drinks with fresh passion fruit juice and agave syrup which was delicious.
Ordered a couple of starters - a tapas plate: 4 small bites which were all delicious. One was a ceviche, another was a nori wrapped shrimp, one had scallops inside of a pastry. The last was an octopus dish. My wife got mussels whch came with house made rolls to dip. The broth was so tasty she finished it all. Drank it like soup. Our waiter told us that's quite common.
For entrees, i went for the surf & turf - a small filet with marrow butter on top and a lobster tail topped with caviar foam. So good. It was a bigger portion than what I expected. My wife ordered a mahi mahi dish. It arrived with two fillets of fish. Again a lot of food. We couldn't finish it all.
It was my wife's birthday and they brought her a birthday cake along with a heart balloon and sang and made noise. It was fun.
We also ordered a creme brulee which came in a white chocolate crust. It wasn't your standard brulee, but it was good.
All in all, a good decision for our one night out. Highly recommended for the views, the food, the service.More

Hi Bill H
Thank you very much for your visit :) and know that you enjoyed your experience at our restaurant, we hope we get the opportunity to serve you again soon, and we will be happy to share your review with our staff.
This was the most beautiful restaurant we have ever been to. Every every view was breathtaking. The food was absolutely incredible. Our writer was Jorge. He was very good and very professional. We will definitely be coming back next time and probably every time.
The food is INCREDIBLE! The best I ever ate with an unbeatable atmosphere. Jorge was wonderful as was all the wait staff. Everyone was super polite. We will visit any time we come back. It’s mandatory.
Highly HIGHLY recommend. The steak is absolutely perfect.
Last week, my wife and I celebrated our honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta, and both of us agreed that our favorite and most memorable time was the night we had dinner at Le Kliff. From start to finish, everything was incredible, and we mostly owe that...to our server/waiter, Gorge (aka Matrix).
Le Kliff was approx. a 45 min taxi ride from our hotel, and upon arrival, staff members already made sure arrangements were made for us after dinner to take us back to our hotel.
Words cannot adequately describe the view overlooking PV and the water; it's a must-see if you're in PV and definitely worth it.
To the main event, Gorge served us 6 courses of some of the best cuisine I've ever had, and my hat is off to the chef as well. Gorge was kind, friendly, extremely attentive, and knowledgeable. He also surprised us with dessert, Roses, and a heart-shaped balloon, to celebrate the Honeymoon. Well worth every peso. Highly recommended, and thank you, Gorge, for making us feel so special!More
I made a reservation at this restaurant yesterday. I specially told them on Opentable that I was bring a small service dog. After driving 35 minutes to this restaurant, they inform me that pets are not allowed. I told them that they should have notified...me and that my wife needed the service dog because of a medical problem. They did not care and told me the dog would not be allowed in the restaurant. So, we left the restaurant. On the way out, another couple that was leaving heard my conversation with the manager. They told me, “you are lucky not to eat at this restaurant, it is a tourist trap and the food is lousy”. So, I thank them and I should have driven to this restaurant, it is in the middle of nowhere and definitely not worth the drive.More
My family has been visiting Le Kliff every time we book a trip to Puerto Vallarta and every time we’re always pleasantly surprised. The hostess even remembered my mom when she went up to check in for our reservation! The waitstaff is always nearby just...WAITING for you to need something, its incredible. As a veteran server myself, I sincerely appreciate their promptness and attention to service. The food was incredible, I had the coconut shrimp which were served on skewers and they were TO DIE for…my husband loved his surf and turf as well. The only downside was when my husband and I tried to go down to the swing and take a picture with the sunset. There was a man and woman flying their drone while they sat there and paid no attention to anyone else around them and the fact that maybe someone else wanted to take pictures there too! Regardless, it was a spectacular evening and I can’t wait for another trip to PV so we can visit Le Kliff again!More
Absolutely stunning atmosphere, views and service! Margaritas were best of the best! Most of the food was also excellent. However, the lobster we ordered was a bit raw inside. Otherwise, this would have been 5 stars all the way. We would definitely return though
