the food, the service, and the value have had me coming back since it opened. The salads are huge! the coconut shrimp is amazing. The quality is what you would expect to get in a very pricey restaurant but at not nearly the price. Although not on the menu they will make you breakfast when the kitchen opens around 11... More

But last week was the best. We went out fishing with Andres, one of the owners, who is also a professional fisherman himself. After an exciting day on the bay we brought our catch back and Swell's excellent kitchen staff cooked the fish to perfection. If there is one place on the beach to eat, drink and be taken care...

Great salads, attentive service, comfy chairs. We found this place through recommendation and kept coming back. We were very well looked after, the staff are engaging and friendly. Their salads are massive and very tasty. Prime beach spot, towels available. I understand that reservations are required for peak season but as we travelled in low season our favourite table was...

I love this place! Huge salads and great location in the beach! Salads cost about the same as in Canada. The staff is great and remember us year after year. No need to bring a towel as the restaurant supplies them. Our first stop for lunch when we go to PV.

They cater to their regulars, everybody else is chopped liver... The foods ok, but the taco stands are better and a better value. Spend your pesos somewhere else.

Service could be better, however the salads are HUGE and very tasty. A pricier place to have fun and sun on the beach. Salads are worth it.
