After visiting PV, DF, San Miguel, Guadalajara & Yucatan, Içu is our Mexican's favorite. Location is great and the modern space is beautifully designed. We took the 5-course menu and enjoyed (a lot) every dished served. The service was very courteous and efficient.

I've had the opportunity to enjoy Icu since it opened 6 years ago and I have been thrilled with every visit. Chef Mauricio consistently creates amazing menus and executes to the highest level. Our mains last night were seabass an duck. Both were superb. The...space is comfortable and airy. The service attentive and professional. Some grumbling about prices seems to take place about all fine dining establishments this season. Its undeserved. The peso has outperformed the dollar, the cost of quality ingredients has risen and labor rates have increased. If you want a fine dining experience it's going to cost you more than the taco stand. Icu has a couple of tasting menus AND a la carte is available so if you want great food give it a try.More

Went to ICU in Zona Romantica, Puerto Vallarta. The place has a great location, right next to the big underground parking at Lazaro Cardenas park. The main chef was away, yet his team has done an outstanding job I think. We chose the 7 course...tasting menu but there was also a 11 course one available, but could not have eaten another bite. Vallarta is not yet a fine dining destination but it is on its way and most likely will happen with restaurants like this. It will take a bit more time, but already nicely plated and presented dishes, good kitchen technic, and they are really trying with service as well. The place has potential if the focus remains. The snacks and bites as well as the tuna dishes were just ok for me, the bass and the NY strip very good, the duck magret a bit maybe overdone. Overall one good place with pretty good service and ambiance.More

We have been to ICU twice and will be going back again during our 2 month stay. The food has been outstanding!!! the first time we had the 7-course tasting menu with wine pairing. Each dish was delicious-fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. The pairing were...excellent. The second time we ordered a la carte and it was just as good. We started off sharing the tuna sashimi, which was tender and melt in the mouth. My husband ordered the strip steak, which was cooked to order, sliced, has a wonderful sauce and on top of that bone marrow. I ordered the striped bass, which has a nice crust and wonderful flavor. We ordered a bottle of Nebbiolo and it was the best wine we have had here. The cocktails that preceded were also great. The service couldn't have been better. The chef came out to talk with us and introduced us to his team of young chefs. It is a delightful atmosphere and I would encourage anyone who likes good food to come here. You won't be disappointed!More

Besides the food and authentic. It was Michelin star quality in presentation and services. I dropped my napkin and before I bent to pick it up someone was already there with a replacement. Will definitely return!

A fantastic culinary experience for each of the 11 courses from the tasting menu. Impressive complex layers of flavour, meticulously presented, and served with care, warmth, and so much attention to detail.

I read reviews about Restaurante Icu and I was immediately knew I had to give them a visit. I’m so glad I did! We were a party of 4 for our friends birthday. I live in PV part time and have been waiting for a...restaurant like ICU ! I have dined at many restaurants in PV but NONE compare to ICU. Two seasonal tasting menu were presented to choose, 7 courses or 11. Each course is beautifully presented and each course got better and better. I enjoyed each course so much I can hardly say which was my favorite! Honestly the best meal I’ve had all year and I come from one of the food capitals, the San Francisco Bay Area. I also am a chef for over 30 years. What ever you do, splurge and get to Restaurante Icu!More

Our server (his name escapes me now unfortunately) was fantastic and a great host. The atmosphere is very...industrial modern trendy. The cocktails were fantastic.

Such a good find! The signature cocktails are really something special and a great way to get things started. Then we were very pleasantly surprised by an amuse bouche and some gifts from the chef. All of our dishes were delightful and presented with a...little explanation of what was on the plate. We were one of two large groups at the time but there were more intimate tables for two available as well. The ambiance is very chic and the service fun and personal. Victor, Lupita and Juan Pablo took excellent care of us!More

The appetizers, main course and drinks were all very delicious and the service was the best we...have experienced in a long time. Everyone was very attentive, friendly and personable.

What a spectacular meal! I’ve been in Puerto Vallarta for 17 years and rarely come across a restaurant I’m so excited about. These chefs are doing something special here. This is a creative experience as well as fine dining with amazing fish, duck and steak...dishes. The service is excellent and cocktails are both unique and balance well with the menu. Try the tasting menu (7 courses) and prepare to be delighted…I actually ordered an 8th dish because I couldn’t get enough. Definitely one of my very top choices in Vallarta where amazing food places are popping up all The time this is one of the best.More
