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!

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 live in PV and were just walking around exploring the area, we had seen El Panorama more than a few times, we finally decided it was the night. 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
