This Place is Way Underrated

This was our second visit to the Happy Lobster and they always exceed expectations. Though you can expect your hotel to try to sway you to Palypas or the Vista opt for this one instead and you wont be disappointed.

Our meal of fresh seafood could not have been better. We had two lobster tails with jumbo shrimp. Delicious. Service was great. It's a bit more expensive than other restaurants in the vicinity, but worth it

We asked a few locals for their favorite restaurant and the Happy Lobster (aka La Langosta Felix) was recommended by several different people. They have a variety to choose from and the portions were huge! Food was very good and the staff was great. We would highly recommend it.

This excellent restaurant is off the beaten path, not on or near the Malecon or in the touristy part of town. It's about six blocks inland from the Sheraton, past the sports complex and up the hill, in a mostly residential neighborhood--probably a taxi ride for most, but definitely worth seeking out. As the name (Happy Lobster) suggests, the menu... More

This comparison of two restaurants is a study in contrasts. One is called Restaurante Rio Grande, located right on the main drag from the hotel district to the malecon, and the other, La Langosta Feliz (the Happy Lobster), is God knows where, straight up the hill from the Sheraton Hotel, in an obscure noncommercial neighborhood. Rio Grande has a fire... More

We return with every visit to PV. We always have a delicious meal with very good, attentive servers. As you can see in the photos, we ordered oysters, and the three of us split two monster sized lobster tails, each prepared differently. We always have the concierge all ahead for reservations and we don't usually have to wait for our... More
