THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Puerto Vallarta Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED When West Hartford Center most needed a Mexican joint---neither too authentic nor too gourmet---the Rodriguez family obliged, opening the fifth link in their mini-chain of affordable cantinas. Fiesta-minded folks come in droves eager to satisfy cravings for salt-touched margaritas, crunchy nachos, sizzling fajitas and molten enchiladas. We go too, though we’re less intrigued by the Americanized standards than by those dishes that do approximate vera cocina. The house specialty is a West Coast favorite: grilled red snapper is covered in a salsa of chopped octopus, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, celery and lime juice, garnished with fresh garlic shrimp, and served with Spanish rice and potatoes. Seafoodies should also sample the Siete Mares, combining shrimp, clams, mussels, scallops, octopus and crab legs in a steamy vegetable broth. Service, while polite, can be exceedingly slow. While prices, unlike at most other eateries in the high-end West Hartford Center, remain on the affordable end.
