I enjoyed sitting by and having a drink while listening to the gentleman playing the saxophone. Good food and friendly staff. Just a stones throw away from the more electric part of Malecon.

This restaurant has a great location on the Malecon. Sunsets are phenomenal. The restaurant is the little brother of Trio but has a better location and is more casual. Food tasted was very good. We tried the quinoa salad with shrimp which tasted great and the eggplant ravioli with chorizo on the side. The restaurant offers half portions of some... More

I am honestly usually skeptical about places a concierge suggests, but this place was perfect! Very reasonably priced, right on the Maleacon Boardwalk. Quite good prices for an awesome meal. Great food - my teenagers demolished the cauliflower appetizer when they don't usually even touch cauliflower, and they also barely let me have any calamari it was so good! They... More

Cute restaurant on the malecon with sidewalk seating available and great views. The breakfast menu offers a wide variety. I loved my omelet and the portion was large. The sweet rolls are amazing. I have trouble finding coffee I like at most PV restaurants but the coffee here was very good. Service was very attentive. Hope to try dinner here... More

We usually eat here on our yearly visit to PV. My wife especially likes the outside eating on the Malacon with the constant flow of people walking by. We had a nice meal with good service at a reasonable price. Will be back next year.

Booked this restaurant to spend New Years eve with my family. Service was great, the owner was there and she was very attentive and careful with every detail. Our dinner was tasty and there was a dj who did a good job with the music.

Highly recommend this restaurant on the Malecón in Old Town of Puerto Vallarta for evening dinner. The waiters are very attentive and friendly. They speak both Spanish and English. They have quite a variety of menu items to choose from, both seafood and beef, pork, and chicken. I especially enjoyed the fish with a nice spicy bruschetta sauce and very... More

This is a pleasant place for lunch on the Malecón in Puerto Vallarta, but not much more. I do not understand the high ratings given by other reviewers. The appetizers are good, but the offering of main courses is limited. The service is hit or miss.

I have eaten here often the food is really good, however the service is hit or miss. The waiters never smile some of them are actually surly looking, like they dislike their jobs and tourists . Too bad as it could be five stars if the service improved.....

Thank kerfontc
