One of PV's steadily rising stars, Icú has come a long way from when it first opened. Now it is sure footed and consistently excellent. Definitely a keeper!

Absolutely a hidden gem in Puerto Vallarta. You are immediately swept away into another world as soon as you enter through the door. Can notrave enough about the creativity and expertise in both the service & quality of food. We had the 9 course tasting menu with wine pairing and I'm still savoring some of those flavors.

Fantastic service, drink selection and food. I reluctantly tried some fish that I do not like, but I loved it here! Every dish was great, from start to finish. Yes, it is pricey for Mexico, but less than half of what I’d expect to pay at home in Vancouver. This restaurant’s cuisine could compete easily with anything in Whistler, BC.

Me decepcionó, no disfruté la comida al máximo, ya que el porkbelly no estaba dorado en la piel y la grasa se percibía mucho; el atún tenía demasiada soya así como su acompañamiento. Al día siguiente tuve dolor de estómago.

This is an absolute Jewel of a gourmet restaurant! Any foodie would be thrilled to find this level of service and food execution in San Francisco or any major city.

It's a small restaurant with an elegant atmosphere. from the moment you enter you are warmly greeted. The service is attentive friendly and professional without being overbearing.

We started with the beet salad and the zucchini tostada. My husband was so impressed with the flavor of the beets that we had to ask our waiter which spice was used. Our server checked with the kitchen and reported it was Chinese five-spice. So unusual yet delicious. The zucchini tostada was so delicious I didn't want to add any of the olive oil that came with it. I was encouraged to do so and wasn't disappointed.

We ordered the octopus, the chicken, and the roasted cauliflower. All were wonderfully executed and artfully arranged on the plate. the chicken was very tender and cooked to perfection. The chopped vegetables it was served on top of were so flavorful I could have made a whole meal of that.

The wine list contains wine exclusively from Mexico which we really appreciated. For dessert we had the chocolate lava cake and dove in so fast that I was unable to get a photo. Absolutely we will be back every year that we visit! We have family who lives in PV and they had not tried the restaurant. We took them out a second night and they were equally impressed.

Great experience as always. We live nearby and have been many times. Service is great and truly one of the most inventive menus in PV - this is not your abuelas Mexican food. Their cocktails, especially the left side of the menu vs the classics on the right side, are an adventure in the art of mixology. See you again on Saturday for our friends’ 1st night in PV.

Very creative food. I loved the atmosphere. Quite and mysterious. It felt like a secret hidden restaurant in New York.
I especially enjoyed the huitlachouche soup and the catch of the day.

Dining at Icu was a wonderful experience. We were celebrating our engagement and they made us feel welcome and special. I had booked a few months in advance on open table when the restaurant used to be open on Sundays. Recently Icu changed their hours to be closed on Sundays. However they didn’t want to cancel so they opened the restaurant especially for us and were so gracious ! The food was outstanding. We enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu. Each dish was visually stunning, and perfectly balanced. We can’t wait to go back next time we are in Puerto Vallarta. Arnold , our server was wonderful! Thanks for the unforgettable private dining experience!

This little place continues to wow. The staff is outstanding and attentive without being overbearing. The food is wonderful and creative. The zucchini tostada and the red snapper tacos were amazing. The duck was a little misstep to my palate, the flavors did not quite meld. Otherwise, it is 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!

Quiet, intimate, soft lighting. This is one of the best restaurants in Vallarta. The tasting menus offer creative and exciting riffs on classic Mexican dishes. Also, the bartender knows how to make a good drink.

Decidimos celebrar nuestro aniversario en este fresco y diferente concepto. La atmósfera es muy actual y la comida es sorprendente. Elegí el menú 5 tiempos y los 5 fueron deliciosos, pero lo más exquisito fue el cierre con el mouse de maracuya y plátano.
Muy buena y recomendable opción

As with many other reviews, we agree this place is wonderful. We spent a lot of time searching for interesting food of good quality, and this restaurant really does fit the bill for one of the best in town. The small tasting menu was quite adequate. The steak dish was so tender that you almost hated using a knife on it. Please go there and support this wonderful restaurant. By the way, the Uber driver could not find the restaurant to pick us up, so I simply gave my phone to the staff who directed him to its location. When we first arrived, I couldn’t find the front door myself, but it turned out that the wood paneling on the outside was the door.

Two of us are Vegan, and I assumed because our friends had said that this was an excellent restaurant with skilled chefs, that they would be able to make a fantastic vegan meal. Yes they made a great plate presentation with the veggies, but it was non-edible.I was greatly disappointed. Our waiter did apologize profusely. His service was perfect and he had a great sense of humor.

But our guest that eats meat says his filet was excellent, and his chocolate fondant was to die for. Plate presentation was excellent.

Yes, to people who like « cuisine moléculaire » where you pay a lot for very small portions. And for those who don’t mind being served by waiters who seem to work in a mortuary parlor instead of a restaurant.

Hola Mayte, muchas gracias por tu visita y por tu reseña. Lamentamos mucho que el trato de nuestra hostess te haya parecido descortés, siempre buscamos que nuestros clientes se sientan bien acogidos, es una pena que que no lo hayan sentido así. Con respecto a que el chef solo trata con extranjeros, no es así, somos dos chefs en el restaurante que buscamos siempre atender personalmente a todos nuestros clientes, sin importar de donde son, lo cual nos ha distinguido desde que abrimos.
