Our taxi driver brought us here and I would say go for a drink and sunset but the food was lacking and service wasn't too excited for our group of 8.

Grab a cab anywhere in town and head up to some great views and food at Ah Carambas. Friendly service. The bacon wrapped ship are awesome, as well as the margaritas.

Our cab driver recommended this very Old Town dinner experience. The view is unreal and the service and food is un matched. I was a little nervous heading up to this restaurant as I didn't know the area and our first time in Mexico but the driver assured us it was a great destination to experience. He was right... the...

The walk to the top was so worth it. We were looking for another restaurant when we passed a man walking his dogs, he said the restaurant we were looking for was too far to walk to. He recommended Ah Caramba and walked with us to make sure we found it. It is a very steep walk up a cobblestone... More

We've been coming here for years and have always loved the food and service. The view is unbeatable in PV. However, we were here two months ago and we all wanted lobster, but we were told they didn't have lobster. We left without ordering dinner, and were told by our taxi driver about La Langosta Feliz (the happy lobster). The... More

Had a friend tell us about Ah Caramba as she had gone 12 years ago. Was the BEST view and surf and turf we've ever had. Not to mention the service... incredible and a must try! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Exquisite food and drinks. The service was the best and the view breathtaking. A bit pricey but it certainly was a good time.

Our cabby Jose recommended Ah Carumba to us and he couldn't have been more spot on. You drive uphill and you think, "where the heck are we going?" He drops us off on the back side of the building (I'll be honest...a little shady). We walk in and witness the best views in the city. The staff was wonderful and... More

This restaurant was recommended by several people and we were glad we went! The drive from the hotel zone is up, up, up. Upon walking to the table, we were left speechless by the view. It was beautiful! I enjoyed a house margarita (definitely limit one on those) and we enjoyed fresh made guacamole tableside. I ordered crab crepes as... More
