We went to Swell for lunch one day while in town shopping. The staff is very friendly and attentive. It's a great place to people watch and hang out for the afternoon. The salads are large and delicious! The ingredients are fresh and the grilled fish and shrimp are well prepared with just the right amount of seasoning and dressing.... More

We spent two days hanging out at Swell's. Nice club on a beautiful spot on Los Muertos Beach. We tried a few different things on the menu. The fried Calamari, club sandwich, Cobb Salad. They were all very good. I would say that the Cobb was the best. Huge salad that was big enough for both of us to share.... More

I'm with the last person who reviewed this place. We go there a lot when in PV. I's a great location and you can reserve ahead. Best coconut shrimp I've ever had. However the staff don't pay enough attention, the best one they had was a young girl working her way through school but when things slowed down she was... More

I spent the month of May 2014 in PV and frequented this particular spot along Los Muertos. They have comfy loungers with lots of options for shade right on the beach. Each two chairs has a large table for your drinks and eats. They bring you a fresh towel if you need one and a bucket of ice for your... More

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...
