At the hillside, overlooking Puerto Vallarta, at the perfect place to see an unencumbered sunset, in soft pleasant atmosphere, you are received graciously by ready and competent waiters and exposed to unique dining experience, with original and delicious dishes. Don't lose the opportunity to have this experience. If you are a couple, it is a must.

We enjoyed El Palomar but prefer the Vista Grill. El Palomar has much better service, but the view and food is just a little better at Vista. The meals are comparable in price.

I used to go to this restaurant 10 years ago, and when I went back it was just as good. My favourite is the langostina (huge shrimp) stuffed with vegetables and cheese and wrapped in bacon. Delicious! Service is good, and the view over the bay is amazing, especially at sunset. Very romantic, but I still felt welcomed as a... More

This was one of the most romantic places I've been in Puerto Vallarta. The staff was incredibly hospitable and even ran to the local store for my husband. The appetizers, food, and drinks were spectacular. I recommend going right before the sun goes down to enjoy the sunset and the night lights of Puerto Vallarta. Truly a magnificent find and... More

I have been coming to PV for about 3 years and in the last 2 1/2 years I stay in a penthouse just across the street from El Palomar and I tell you besides convenience the food and service is top notch. I come from Toronto Canada and actually been in the restaurant/bar business for many years and I wish... More

We found this place by shear luck. Upon arrival the outside is underwhelming, but walk in and let the view and ambiance take you away. Its like relaxing at someone's home. Beautiful décor, clean, relaxed, and a view of the city and bay. We just loved it. We all had different entrées, delicious! Service was friendly and casual. We sipped... More

Most tables have a view overlooking the city and a wide panorama of the bay from high on the mountain. Very pleasant décor in the Mexican style with plants to soothe the soul. The table service and food were outstanding. The ambiance was enhanced by the setting sun as we wined and dined into the night. Will dine there again... More
