A great location on the Malecon to enjoy a nice cold beer or margarita! A busy place but nice to sit and watch everyone enjoying their walk along the oceanfront! One of our favorite stops every time we are in Puerto Vallarta and we are looking forward to stopping there again in April 2015!

We went with high anticipation as we had heard good things. The service was lacklustre, the food only average, we go the food without any dining utensils and had to ask for them. Always had to ask for more drinks. Had a different waiter each time. Would not return.

Yes, they have a great venue above the Malecon for people watching. But $1 margaritas? The bottled water was $2, and it was better by far than the margaritas. We ordered nachos. . . they came with some kind of greasy yellow liquid on them which evidently was supposed to be cheese? Salad was ok. Service was slow. Ugh.

We had a table on the second floor overlooking the Malecon and beach. The service was great. The menu has lots of food choices at very reasonable prices. Food was delicious. It is a busy place so reservations would be best to ensure a table with a view.

We were there in 2011 and returned this year, 2015. Sorry but it just wasn't as good as the first time. Very busy place. We sat on the 3rd floor and had a nice view of the ocean. Food was awesome but slow in coming to our table. Onion rings are huge, like doughnuts. Drinks are awesome and a great... More

Stopped here for drinks and appetizers several times on a recent visit to Puerto Vallarta. Drinks are cheap and good. Food was tasty. Great place to sit and enjoy the sunset. Staff are very friendly.

We stopped for a beer and some snacks at the Cheeky. Nice location overlooking the malecon and ocean. Guacamole was good and so were the fries. The onion rings were gigantic! Beer was cheap!

Every year when we vacation in Puerta Vallarta we always stop at Cheeky Monkeys for a couple of cerveza and an appetizer. Drinks and appetizers are very affordable. I think we had 5 beer and an order of bruschetta for $11. USD. Its a great place to sit and watch the Malecon, the boats and the sunset.
