We were there with our 19 y.o. daughter. We have a feeling it's more of a couples romantic type of place. The views alone are worth a try. It sits atop the La Siesta hotel. The food was good, excellent presentation but small portions. Kinda...More

My husband and I were here for our anniversary and could not have picked a more perfect spot! The service, food and staff were excellent. The view is the most stunning spot in Puerto Vallarta. I can't wait to go back!!

Our establishment opened its doors in 1973 and has maintained its reputation as one of the premier restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. Our view is unrivaled in Vallarta as we are located on top of Hotel Suites La Siesta on a hillside 4 blocks from the beach and boardwalk (malecon) in the very heart of El Centro. We have two rooftop terraces and two indoor salons that have commanding views of the entire Bay of Banderas and city with its array of red tiled rooftop. Our menu is international and features flambe cooking right at your table as well as our unique caesar salad, desserts and flamming coffees. Our restaurant is rich in history and tradition and should be part of what all tourists are looking for: good food, service and that special ambiance.
