Good empandas

Enjoyed my empandas, service was spotty, but not sure why. We had a good meal overall but with all the great reviews expected more.

I eat lunch here often. The nachos are great and the beans are a dream. The are super great with service and I like to seat on the street and watch the people. Prices are a little high, but I am a budget traveler. I will be there again in October 2015

This place was actually recommended by our cab driver, as one of his favorites. He's got good taste! It's a smaller restaurant that delivers in a big way. They've got the tacos, and enchiladas but also a diverse menu of seafood, too! PLEASE have a margarita, too!

Wow! This little place is so great! It was recommended to us by the hotel and boy did it satisfy. It's authentic Mexican food and massively tasty! Located in the romantic district, close to downtown, it's got a quaint ambience and the service is welcoming and attentive. We will definitiely be returning to this place!

We eat here at least once each time we visit PV. The food is quite good. I always enjoy the chicken enchiladas and my fiancé love their chile rellenos.

The restaurant we were looking for was closed and it was extremely hot and raining hard so we went to Cafe de Olla by default. What a great surprise. In contrast to an earlier reviewer's comment, the back two rooms are definitely air conditioned and look out on a pleasant courtyard. We ordered cielo rojos which were huge and expertly... More

I am a local and I was surprised to find real Mexican food in the touristic area. Wonderful chiles rellenos, you can't miss them! The service was great. Try to visit at night and during summer days since it can get hot and there is no a/c but food worth it. There are nice tables in the boardwalk and by... More
