We went here for a couple drinks. There was some confusion in regards to the happy hour specials. I had read about a special listed on an online site. He told me it wasn't their special. I brought it up on my phone. He had no idea so he took my phone to his manager. They said it wasn't through... More

We went for an early dinner 5:30 pm). The host made a point of telling us how clean the bathrooms were on his way to seat us on the beach. I went to wash my hands and found the ladies washroom door open and no door on 1 of the 2 stalls. Also no soap. The table cloth was filthy.... More

We visited mid-afternoon for a snack of guacamole dip and margaritas. The margaritas were pretty dilute. The guacamole tasted good, but the chips were pathetic: few in number and mostly small, broken pieces. The staff were friendly. We sat outside under a beach umbrella and were constantly accosted by roving vendors, which we expected. As far as an afternoon snack... More

We went to this restaurant on the beach after visiting the Farmers Market. The store front Bar is just as cool with Charlie serving up ice cold buckets of beer. We enjoyed the friendly service and the kids loved the beach. There are plenty of vendors and don't be afraid of the oysters covered in ice or shrimp on a... More

Horrible food, bad service, great view. Make sure they are charging you the right amount. And clarify your order.

Great location & view. Lousy service and food. We were only the second couple in the restaurant. The service was lousy at best. We ordered drinks and were in no rush. Drinks were slow to come but we were enjoying the view. No problem. They took our order for breakfast and waited and waited then three other couples came in... More

Ok, so we were hustled in with the promise of a great breakfast. Great? No. But it was definitely edible. Eggs were good, Potatoes were more like a frozen patty. Coffee didn't really taste like any coffee I've ever had, maybe it was supposed to be cafe de olla? Not bad tasting, just not too coffee-like. More like pancakes with... More

We were brought in by Chuy, who has been somebody we've known in PV for a long time. This place is really good. The chicken skewers and shrimp skewers are excellent and so is just about everything else here. They are right on the beach and have their own very clean restroom. The beers were always cold and the service... More
