The only problem was the elevator was broken and we had to climb 6 flights of stairs-good thing we hadn't brought our friend Susanne with us. The food was amazing, the service and the view were perfect. We sat at the table Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton had sat at. The camerones El Panorama were flamed at our table, the... More

El Panorama restaurant has a wonderful view and the food was great. Some of the food is prepared at your table creating a unique atmosphere. Neat place, great find for a nite out.

We arrived at El Panorama in time to see the sunset, only to find out that the elevator was out and we had to climb 8 flights of stairs to get to the restaurant - there are no rails on part of the stairs causing one of our group to have issues. When we got to the restaurant we were... More

My wife and I dined here for our Anniversary dinner and were treated to a Fantastic memorable evening. The views from the restaurant are amazing! The food and service are the Best. You just need to ask any taxi driver to take to take you here, they know how to get there...Hang on though, its a FUN ride!

I've been dining at El Panorama each visit to Puerto Vallarta for about the last 6 vacations. The food, service, view and your host Pele, not to forget the chefs Chewy (the other chef, female, is excellent as well) all make your evening an unforgettable experience. The best garlic shrimp I've ever had anywhere and still the best all time... More

This restaurant is located in one of the first high rises in Puerto Vallarta. It is bathed in elegance with an outstanding view. Prices are reasonable and the food is delicious and the service is superb. It is a romantic setting for a date with your special friend or wife or family as the view is magnificent.

This restaurant was the perfect location for a wonderful couples dinner. It had a majestic view of the city and the bay that certainly justified the name of the restaurant. the food was excellent, the cooking right at the table was a great show, and the 'sexy coffee' was something I had not seen in any of my travels. Fantastico!
