Had an excellent birthday celebration there! My waiter had worked there for 44 years and couldn't be more accommodating. The view was breathtaking and the sunset was divine. The food was excellent but the service from the table side caesar salad to their after dinner cocktail presentation is a must see. Don't hesitate to take the trip to this fantastic... More

This is "MUST" travelers to Puerto Vallarta. We have visited El Panorama for years and it has become a family tradition each time we have gone to Puerto Vallarta. It offers a perfect combination for a dinner. First of all, it has an "old world" feel that instantly takes you away from the commercialized hustle and bustle of the city.... More

We walked up the long forgotten steps that we love to do, arrived at the very welcoming entrance. The door man sprang to life an made sure the elevator was on... More

We were looking for a special night out for our last night in Puerto Vallarta and went on line to go through the Trip Advisor list of restaurants for PV. There was something like 650 to look through. I found the reviews for El Panorama and they were overwhelmingly positive but the concierge where we were staying was not familiar... More

We have visited El Panorama for many years. We have never been disappointed with the food or service. Pele greeted us at the elevator and was most gracious and helpful, making us feel right at home. Jesus (Chewy) was our waiter preparing several dishes at the table with great showmanship and flair. The view and sunsets are always the best... More

Recommended by a person at our hotel. It was the evening of our 22nd Wedding Anniversary and having never been to Puerto Vallarta, why not go with a local recommendation. So glad we did. Reservation was at 8 pm, the sun was just setting in the distance, 360 degree views of the hills to the bay, no rush to eat... More

Incredible view, excellent service and excellent food. A true "dining experience." And one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever been in.

Cannot say enough good things about this fabulous restaurant. Most local people know about his treasure of a restaurant. We have been coming here for years and it's always wonderful. Take your camera for sure as the sunsets and views from this rooftop restaurant are spectacular. The wait staff is knowledgable and very friendly. Beef Stroganoff is always rich and... More
