Panorama well named

You really need a taxi to take you up to this restaurant. It sits high above the malecon in a location that only a taxi driver could find. But once there it is well worth the trip. The restaurant itself is on the 7th floor of La Siesta hotel and accessed by small elevator. The view of Puerto... read more

The views from this restaurant are amazing! We had a 6:30 reservation so we could see the sunset while we were eating and it was such a gorgeous view! The service was superb, the food was excellent, the sexy coffee was wonderful and a neat presentation to watch. Our kids were given a kid friendly after dinner treat which they... More

Went with my husband for a romantic dinner while on vacation. Great views of the city and bay. Romantic atmosphere but loud music. Flavorless food. Overall a bit disappointed.

What a fabulous experience! The food was wonderful, and so well priced. I couldn't get over the view and took many pictures. We had dinner reservations for 7pm which gave us time to view the bay in sunlight, and then watch the sunset. Beautiful, and wonderful service from all! If you are in PV, it's a must visit destination!

We arrived for the sunset and with reservations had that corner table which provided us with a view from point to point of the largest bay in North America. Our waiter Fabian Lopez Gomez greeted us with chips, guacamole and a plate veggies to enjoy with cocktails. When the sun disappeared we placed our order for dinner all having selected... More

We have not been here since 2013 and we came back to see our old waiter Pele'. He has been working here for 35+ years. There is no doubt that it has one of the best views of Banderas Bay around. Situated high above the bay in Central PV it is an exciting taxi ride and then an elevator to... More
