Restaurant Chez Elena

After a delicious dinner, many guests ascend to El Nido, our roof-top bar, to enjoy the lights and sounds of Vallarta. For more than 50 years the most spectacular vistas in the city have been seen from El Nido.

A favourite with the rich and famous for almost 60 years, Chez Elena remains as one of Puerto Vallarta's finest restaurants and greatest secrets. As guests can attest, there is no finer cuisine in the area. Chez Elena has well-deserved reputation for delicious fresh food, friendly service, and a beautiful and romantic setting.

A friendly and talented staff have helped to create the warm atmosphere of Chez Elena. Jesse and Carlos wear the demeanor born of experienced professionalism and loyalty that welcomes all guests. Chef Isabel's Cochinita Pibil is among a venue of favorites, and is a delight for the more adventuresome palates. In pre-Columbian times, pibes were stone-lined pits and the cochinitas were the little piglets cooked in them. Originated in the Yucatan, this savory pork dish, with a red onion and achiote chili sauce, is served with camote (sweet portatoes) and black beans on a banana leaf.

The on-premise restaurant, Chez Elena, is just one of the many charming surprises awaiting at Los Cuatro Vientos!! Once inside, you'll want to walk up to the Rooftop Terrace (El Nido) where you will enjoy an incredible view of the entire City and Bay.

The atmosphere here is undeniably romantic with its twinkling lights, flickering candles and intimate setting. Consistently acclaimed for its scrupulous attention to freshness and unobtrusive professional service, the menu is nicely balanced between international and Mexican specialties.

Originally opened in 1954 by Elena Cortez, Chez Elena has been owned since 1980 by Gloria Whiting. This photo is of film maker John Huston and Gloria at the grand opening of Chez Elena and Los Cuatro Vientos in November of 1980.

This lovely garden restaurant is quite often the setting of an intimate engagement dinner, anniversary or special birthday. Chez Elena caters to both small and large groups upon request, as well as private dinner parties, capable of serving as many as 100 people.
