Dining Like: Barrio Bistro

Guillermo is part of the Wulff family that have been active in Puerto Vallarta for years in real estate, fashion and cuisine. His grandfather was instrumental in having the movie the Night of the Iguana filmed in Vallarta.

He is joined by another long-time Vallartan, Gina Degilio, who provides the art for the bistro, as it is also a gallery, primarily representing the art of Rogelio Díaz, who has been one of Vallarta’s better known and successful artists for some years now.

The restaurant is rather European, operating on the main floor of their home, with both inner and outer “bistro-style” seating. The menu is presented on a blackboard by Memo, and changes weekly.

We tried the rib-eye and rack of lamb and the fish, and all were superb. The French crew I was with are rather particular about how their meat is cooked and served and they gave rave reviews. I had the fish and it was wonderful.

Portions are generous and prices are quite reasonable. Wine selection is limited but decent and priced accordingly.

Very much recommended. España #305, Col. Versalles (Google it first or take a taxi). For reservations call Memo on his cell at (322) 151-7293.
