This restaurant was next door to our hotel and we enjoyed a tortilla made with cheese and filled with mushrooms and chicken. It was an amazing appetizer! Fried shrimp was delicious and the cocktails were perfect! [Watermelon margarita!!]

We wanted a relaxing and laid back restaurant to enjoy off of the resort. The tuna appetizer stole my heart -- amazing! We didn't take pictures of our food but we did of the view from our seating. I highly recommend you visit this restaurant.

With a great view of the ocean, what better place to enjoy delicious grilled Mahi Mahi tacos or coconut shrimp. Both were wonderful. It may be little tricky to locate, but worth the hunt, especially if you are near the north end of the Malecon....More

Barracuda was recommended to us by the hotel. The wait staff and location was wonderful. The food was tasteless and not even close to the quality of other food we had ate in town.

Probably the best new restaurant in PV proper. Wonderful! From the concept to the food, this place hits all the marks. The cocktails are fresh and not overly sweet. The food is complex and super fresh. I'll be back. Love this place.

My husband had fried shrimp and I had coconut shrimp. We agreed it was the best shrimp we have ever had. The location is right on the beach close to Villa Premiere Resort.

I'm not sure about online reservations, we walked in waited for about 15 minutes and the hostess (very nice) had a handwritten list. No credit cards accepted! Which was a surprise, since there is no visible sign.
