We went here with six friends who have eaten here many times and now I know why. First the view is spectacular overlooking the Bay of Banderius. Our server couldn't have been more engaging. He was professional yet fun to talk to. The food was high quality and what you could find in a major North American high end restaurant.... More

Gracious service and good food. Owner sends his staff to train in Switzerland. Super crowded for Happy Hour, and on the weeknight when they serve Veal Shank. Good Coconut Shrimp.

Make a reservation, asking for a table along the boardwalk floor is a few steps above the walkway which puts you above most folks walking by. Interesting to people watch while waiting for sunset. Popular spot for happy hours, interesting menu, reasonable pricing

This was a nice place requires a reservation as the 2 for 1 happy hour keeps folks there well past happy hour. My husband had the lamb shank and fell in love. The birthday surprise was a beautiful cake

Atmosphere was good. Service was very very very slow. Food was fair to horrible. I had a" western" burger. Meat was mealy and very salty. I'm surprised I did not get sick. Puerto Vallarta has hundreds of good retaurants from humble to fancy. Don't waste your time and money on this one.

This is a great place to watch the sunset and have a great meal, we've walked past this place for years and never stopped until those year. Jorge was our waiter, very nice and attentive. Food was great, we'll be back.
