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

Great restaurant, wonderful service. I was really happy with everything. Best parts are table side service is the best! Fire shrimp, amazing table side Caesar salad, fire coffee dessert with sound effects and lighting! Had brought out entire family - everyone loved it. Had a bit of a scare when my 5 year old ran up to the 'window' they... More

Some of the best food in PV with stunning sunset views. Pele has been there for 40+ years and the service reflects it. Tableside cooking is a nice touch. Dont leave without trying the " Sexy Coffee" !

Have been to this place in the past. Loved it then, loved it now. The food is excellent, staff are attentive and put on various culinary tableside shows (i.e., flambé), and the views are gorgeous. Highly recommend letting Marisa Bridge (professional photographer) take a picture of you with the sunset in the background. She will sell them to you at... More

We had a wonderful dining experience at EL PANORAMA. Our concierge made 6:30 PM reservations so we could arrive well before sunset ... we were immediately seated at a great table and enjoyed the spectacular sunset over Banderas Bay. My husband ordered the Heart of Filet in Garlic Sauce and I ordered Shrimps "El Panorama" ... both were flamed and... More

As we were getting off the rickety elevator 4 people were getting on it very angry that they had been there 20 minutes and had had NO service. They were actually the lucky ones. Service was sloppy, erratic, and disorganized. The two tables they pushed together for the four of us were covered with cloths but uneven, so our bottle... More

Visited El Panorama for Valentines day again, a favorite for many years. A friend made reservations end of Jan. to insure we would get a good table. First issue was they had no reservation, luckily she had a copy of the email confirming our table. They took us to a table in the back corner of the roof but acted... More

My girlfriend and I went to El Panorama for a sunset dinner during a recent trip to Puerto Vallarta. The view was spectacular. The menu has many great options but as I typically find, the view in these types of places is the main draw rather than the meal. I had surf and turf and it was slightly above average.... More
