At Coco Tropical Restaurant, Grill & Beach Club, fabulous food, unforgettable sunsets, spectacular views of Banderas Bay and the warmth of Mexican hospitality come together on a splendid beachfront terrace, right on the golden sands of the most popular beach in Puerto Vallarta, Playa Los Muertos.

One of the founding members of the Puerto Vallarta Gourmet Festival, owner Heinz E. Reize is an accredited Swiss Chef who brings his culinary talents to this elegant beach side bistro. His career took him from Switzerland to Germany, Holland, Canada, the US, Curaçao and finally, to Mexico.

Smitten with the charm, people and scenery, Mr. Reize decided to settle down in Puerto Vallarta. After spending a few years as the General Director of the Krystal Vallarta Hotel, Heinz and renowned Vallarta businessman Andrés-Famania Ortega decided to open a restaurant. As a result, Coco Tropical Restaurant & Beach Club opened its doors for the first time on August 14th, 1997.

Today, this gourmet restaurant in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is well-known for its international cuisine with an European spirit. Coco Tropical is an associate member of the "Best Specialty Restaurants Club," is among the fine dining restaurants listed in Vallarta Lifestyles' "Platinum Dining Guide," and the restaurant has participated in the annual Puerto Vallarta Festival Gourmet since 1995.

With gourmet cuisine prepared with high quality ingredients at reasonable prices - there's no wonder that Coco Tropical is one of the most popular restaurants in Puerto Vallarta!
