BITE ME! BEACH CLUB - Puerto Vallarta

Bite Me! Beach Club’s indoor/outdoor café is located on the beach about 4 blocks south of the wooden pier in the Zona Romantica area – the older charming Puerto Vallarta. The casual, relaxing space of flowing drapes, dark woods, comfortable tables & chairs on an elevated outdoor dining area and yards & yards of glass if you choose to dine inside – and nothing to obstruct your views of the beach & the bay.

This casual beach club eatery recently came under new management. I believe Grant is the new manager. His unending energy has successfully re-energized the beach club.

Jaime and I spent the afternoon enjoying tall, perfectly tart vodka lemonades and all of the beach eye candy!

We started with a “flower” of angular chips and a mound of fantastic guacamole and a side of pico de gallo that had just a bit of heat. The beautiful presentation was accented with bits of red & yellow peppers. Salvador made certain we did not run out of warm chips!

For lunch, I had the “Mein Herr” sandwich – a stack of Black Forest Ham, Swiss cheese, tomato and mayo on a toasted pumpernickel sub-like roll (baked fresh daily). A side of hot and crispy fries came as a side. A salad of baby greens and carrot slivers were tossed in a balsamic vinegar and wine reduction dressing. This crisp salad was creatively served in a radicchio cup. Delicious! This reincarnation is a huge improvement over its past life.

Grant’s smile, personality and ‘biting’ humor kept the tables filled with guests. He has retained the same sexy & very friendly staff. Julio, Frederico and Salvador are quick to accommodate!

I will most certainly be returning to Bite Me! on my next visit in November.

Mmm, Mmm, Mmm…
