La Leche

Mexican in Puerto Vallarta

This milk-themed place has a dramatic entry, and the dairy gag continues in various ways throughout the meal. Service is very personal and friendly – expect pats on the back rather than kid gloves – if a bit scatty. The restaurant is strong on seafood and its duck signature dish. The eating experience is lots of fun.

There's a good wine list for west coast Mexico, plus a seven-course degustatión (tasting) menu. Drug lord Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzman's son was famously kidnapped here in 2016 by armed men of a rival cartel. La Leche also runs a burrito food truck outside.
