We came here with a friend and his gf who is an ex-pat in PV for some lunch and beach. Enjoyed every dish, the preparation, people watching, and the beach (about 15 yds away). Prices are amazing also, and it's definitely not a touristy place,...More

I'm not sure about online reservations, we walked in waited for about 15 minutes and the hostess (very nice) had a handwritten list. No credit cards accepted! Which was a surprise, since there is no visible sign.
