Popular chain restaurant Bubba Gump Shrimp Co has a location right on the Puerto Vallarta malecon. While it seems odd that people would want to eat at an international chain when so many unique and delicious restaurants are available, Bubba Gump always seems to be crowded, especially when the cruise ships are in town.
You'll find the same things on the menu that you will at any of the dozens of restaurants around the world; shrimp, catfish, po' boy sandwiches. The portions are big and priced accordingly. You can also enjoy large and expensive margaritas. The staff is friendly enough and if you like dining with loud tourists, this is a great place to eat. It has a small outside section, so most likely you'll be seated inside.
