We've been going to this restaurant for over a decade.... for several years it has been amazing. As everyone states the view is amazing but they used to have equally amazing food and service. But that's changed. The past 3 years we've been thinking about " breaking up" with them but tonight sealed it for us. They used to make... More

This a is a friendly little restaurant with a great view overlooking old town. We got the surf n turf for two. It was a giant platter of food for a great price. A bit of advice take a taxi, the hill to get there would be a rough walk. The staff was great, food delicious and with a nice... More

Enjoyed a wonderful sunset dinner last week. We were a party of 8 with 4 return guests. The fresh guacamole was incredible. Suggest sharing entrees as portions are generous. Stuffed crab crepes appetizer is a meal by itself. We shared shrimp fajitas and still had leftovers. Bacon wrapped shrimp amazing had ham & cheese wrapped in it which is not... More

Beautiful view of city/ocean and this is the best part of the restaurant. Very limited menu, mostly shrimp or the fish of the day (snapper for us when we visited). Very slow service. Waited about 20 minutes jut for water. Ordered sangria for dinner drinks and it tasted like a very sweet fruit juice with lemonade added to it. Only... More

Our cab driver lied to us about the restaurant we had chosen to visit, told us it had changed ownership and was no good anymore. He then proceeded to take us to Ah Caramba which he highly recommended. We discovered that everyone in the restaurant had been brought there using the same scam. Deceived into believing that Ah Caramba was... More

Other than the spectacular view, and friendly staff... this is a cantina, no atmosphere , very average food, and priced higher than beautiful restaurants w/ interesting food, prices that are equal or lower... and great views.

Two different taxi drivers recommended Ah Caramba so we made this our first restaurant dinner in PV. and everything was great. Let's start getting there. I recommend a taxi because you must travel up a steep hill to get there. You can walk if you prefer, of course. The reward for the climb is an open view of the bay,... More

OMG ---What a view! And the food was excellent as well! We had a friend recommend this place for dinner…. actually, it was the Mexican Coffee he talked about and how it was made at your table and added it had a great view. We had the Spanish Coffee with ice-cream and he was right on with that! We went... More

The coconut shrimp was amazing as well as the fish surprise. The Mexican coffee is a must. Reserve a table for a sunset view. Our service was good and the staff was very accommodating and entertaining. Although the restaurant was out of the Caramba shrimp, it looked amazing and we would love to go back sometime to try it. The... More
