Read on to hear about how Puerto Vallarta Mexican Restaurant & Cantina got started here in the harbor.
Puerto Vallarta Restaurants is a family business that has been owned by the Andrade family for almost 40 years. There are 17 different locations with each location owned or co-owned and operated by one of the five children of the restaurants’ founders, Clemente and Anita Andrade. Born and raised in Mexico, Clemente and Anita have stayed true to their heritage with their attention to detail and insistence on authenticity in their original recipes. Their son Sergio Andrade and his wife Patty have been in the family business since they got married and currently run the Puerto Vallarta Mexican Restaurant & Cantina in Gig Harbor, as well as several of the other locations.
You will be transported by the south-of-the-border ambiance and extensive menu that includes Mexican favorites such as tacos, enchiladas, burritos, quesadillas, and fajitas. They also have gluten-free and vegetarian items available. The Puerto Vallarta drink menu has something for everyone with options like a create-your-own margarita or the non-alcoholic Mexican staples, Jarritos and Horchata. Be sure to catch local musicians playing on the outdoor patio during the summer.
The Andrades support other restaurant owners, sponsor several sports teams in the area, and donate to local schools.
