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.

I've been going to PV for years and stay at the other edge of town. We walked 2 miles to get to this beach and decided to stay for lunch. I chose this restaurant based on their chairs (including face shades) and menu and loved both! They provide complimentary beach towels and will even set up extra chairs or extra... More

I went there to just spend a morning in the beach, and every minute was very peaceful. I enjoy the service very friendly. The food with quality and the location. It is now my favorite place to be in Playa Los Muertos.

We have found the freshness and variety of the new menu excellent. Each dish is prepared with care and the flavours are fantastic, eating on the beach somehow enhances the whole experience. And the good looking "boys" impress as well.

As with the earlier days of The Beach House, we've found our experience at Swell excellent. We are there every 2nd day over three weeks. We've had no problems at all. Andreas, David, Frederico and Carlos all look after us well. Food is excellent, be it salads or sandwiches, fries or onion rings . . . They will make half... More
