Buen Provecho!


We had the opportunity to meet Executive Chef Vidal Mezela Noh during a trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in late April 2014, while we were staying the Grand Miramar Puerto Vallarta and had excellent dinners at the Sky Restaurante where the views complement his inspired cuisine.

The first thing that you notice about Chef Vidal when you meet him is his smile, his face lights up when he talks about his passion for life, and the pure joy he experiences in his chosen profession. Born in the state of Quintana Roo, México, Chef Vidal Mezela Noh has always liked to cook. It is his life, his passion, making new culinary discoveries.

Chef Vidal Mezela Noh

His career has taken him from Cancun where he worked for 10 years, to Acapulco where he worked for 2 years, to Ixtapa-Zuatanejo where he worked for 7 years before coming to Puerto Vallarta, where he has worked for the past 18 months. In his free time, he likes to go to the beach, and to enjoy the natural beauty of the mountains of Puerto Vallarta.

Executive Chef Vidal Mezela Noh graciously shares a delicious taste of Sky Restaurante with his recipes for Tuna with Sweet Soy Sauce, and Surf & Turf accompanied with Au Gratin Potatoes and Asparagus with Two Sauces: Four Pepper Sauce and Roasted Garlic and Fennel Sauce.
