Treated like an old friend on our first visit! Well worth the walk up the hill to the top of Olas Alta's (then a left turn). Jorge and his sons provided us with great service and the entrees were exceptional. We ordered the Coconut Shrimp and the Baja Shrimp - excellent choices. We ordered a shared salad to start and...

We tried this restaurant as we've heard good things about it but I'm sorry to say that our experience was not as good as I hoped. We ordered a Cadillac and a mango margarita. The Cadillac was good and strong. We were told that they add Grand Marnier to a classic margarita to make it a Cadillac. The mango margarita,... More

Jorge's is not pretentious and, frankly, not high on the list when it comes to atmosphere. But the food is simply outstanding, and the service is friendly. My wife's bacon-wrapped shrimp and my coconut shrimp were two of the best dishes we had during our entire trip.

We got a recommendation for this smaller, casual spot for seafood. It is slightly off the main area but a lot of the best places are. We really enjoyed sitting in the streets which reminds you of European cafes. The menu was a very pleasant surprise - this is not just a shrimp cocktail or ceviche spot, they have great... More

Off the beaten path but only maybe three blocks. Very easy to get there and a safe area to walk. We had a party of four and were able to be seated with no wait. The Waiter explained the menu items and how they were prepared. The prices were very inexpensive with wonderful food. We are not big eaters and... More

Based on other reviews, I was expecting a better dinner. I started with the blackberry margarita with Don Julio. While I appreciate a strong cocktail, I couldn't drink it. Our salads were terrific though. We each had a shrimp dish - I had the pineapple shrimp and my husband had the special house shrimp. Each were ok but not great.... More

We have been going to PV for a few years and always wanted to try Jorge's. We made it this year and it is a hideaway. Located up a hill on a dead end street. It is a small place with tables inside and outside. Some of the outside tables even setup on the public streets. We had a short... More

We've had some stellar meals in PV, and while this was good, it doesn't rank up there with some others. We had tortilla soup (good), clam chowder (good), followed by the house special shrimp (wrapped in prosciutto), which we found very salty, but good, and coconut shrimp, which was heavily covered and served with a sauce for dipping that I...

Based on a tip from a local foodie, we took a walk to this place that was close to our hotel. What a good decision! We ended up eating there twice and had a great meal every time. The pineapple shrimp is the best I have ever had. Jorge himself is circulating among the diners, chatting and making sure everyone... More

After reading so many positive reviews, I must admit I was disappointed. My shrimp .... very few, I might add, were in so much sauce that it was way too rich. Maybe I made the wrong menu choice. Presentation was lovely. Staff very friendly. So much so we were given a complimentary Kahlua after our meal. My husband had the... More
