Mama Rosa's is a beautiful little restaurant tucked in a shady, hidden street in El Centro (just above Cafe de Artistes). It is very cozy and elegant with soft piano music playing under an open-air roof. Carlos was our waiter who had very good English and impeccable service.

The food was as elegant as the decor. The menu has 9 main dishes, all at the same price - 249mp. I had the stuffed chicken plate and my wife had the double pork chop. Both had absolutely 5-star presentation on the plates and in their flavors.

This is a very romantic place - good for anniversaries, dates, personal events, or groups who want a quiet place to enjoy good food and conversation. It is about 4 blocks off of the Malecon and well worth the short walk.

Note they are closed in the off-season but just re-opened last week (3 week of Nov 2017).

My husband and I had dinner here in a Sunday evening and it was delightful on every way. The restaurant had just been remodeled and is cozy and romantic just above Cafe de Artiste and the Art Galleries in Centro.
Our waiter, Carlos, was so nice and gave top shelf service. The food was not only very good but it's presentation was that of a much more expensive restaurant. The menu is relatively small but all entrees are 249 pesos and that is bargain.
We would definitely go back to Mama Rosa's to try other dishes. The perfect place for a quiet, romantic evening.

Went to have a great dinner on March 9th, 2017 and they were closed. Talked to the owner of the art store just below them and he said they were closed for remodeling. Ended up at Pepes for some tacos al pasture. Still a terrific night.

Six of us went, Some thought ok, some thought was mediocre breakfast. Better places in PV for a great breakfast.

This small but very good restaurant is next to Café des Artists. The terrace and dinning area have a magnificent view perfect of an evening dinning experience.

Almost every table has a great view with a few tables directly on the railing overlooking a small garden with waterfall.
The menu is simple but offers a good variety of starters and main dishes. They have a set menu composed by a 3 course dinner certain to satisfy you.
The cuisine is modern mexican with a mixture of flavours that foreigners WILL LOVE.

Wine selection is good and service is great
