Mexican restaurant Gaby’s has reopened doors after a renovation period and is ready to welcome clients for one more season. The restaurant has renovated and improved its kitchen space with the aim of providing clients an even more quick service and delighting their palate with its culinary offerings.

Vallarta Lifestyles met chef Julio Castillón at the restaurant’s first floor, where he showed us the new, well-lit and more spacious kitchen facilities. Gaby’s Restaurant Bar building used to be the house of the Castillón family and is located near the intersection of Mina and Hidalgo streets in El Centro. It opened in 1989 and over the years has improved its facilities several times in order to offer an even more pleasant experience. It is a regular participant of Restaurant Week and has positioned itself as one of the favorite Mexican cuisine restaurants thanks to its commitment to the authenticity of local and domestic dishes. Raicilla-based drinks, traditional desserts and main dishes that represent Mexico internationally are featured on its menu.

Moreover, chef Julio continues to teach his Mexican cooking classes, which have been a great success among foreign visitors. In fact, a dozen of international influencers and reporters for media outlets have taken the cooking classes and shown interest in Gaby’s delicacies. Lonely Planet is one of the publications that have been amazed by chef Julio’s creations. During the class, he takes his apprentices to a local market, where they get all the ingredients necessary to prepare Mexican specialties and traditional beverages.

“We have been advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles since the opening of our restaurant, and since then, we have kept a strong relationship. Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."
