hard to access for anyone with physical impairments. Music is ridiculously loud at times. Bathrooms are not the nicest and not maintained.

We stopped into enjoy the sunset and for cheap drinks ($1 margaritas and beer). We also enjoyed their gigantic onion rings. As big as donuts. We could not finish all of them.

Great upstairs location overlooking the Malecon (across from the ladder sculpture). The are know for the cheap drinks--$1 beers and margaritas, but the food is just average. We had nachos and they came with the canned cheddar cheese sauce and some rather greasy hamburger (which was an extra charge). Also french fries (they were good) and chips with salsa (ok).... More

My husband and I stopped in for some drinks just before the sunset one evening. The best views are from the top floor, where you overlook the malecon and ocean. The beers are cheap ($1 if I remember correctly) and cold. Just before the sun goes down, they start blaring Andrea Bocelli's "Time to say goodbye" and once the sun... More

Have been going here for years, but it has really lost its appeal. The drinks are cheap, but nothing special. Beer is fine (afterall, it is simply a bottle of beer), but the margaritas used to be so much better. Was disappointed, and won't be returning. Yes, the view is nice, but you can also have the same view from... More

We had a great time people watching and viewing the ocean from our table. Corona and margaritas are only a $1.00. The staff is awesome and they want you to have fun. They have high speed internet to check emails etc.

Excellent casual atmosphere right on the ocean. Appetizers (we especially like the bruschetta) are great and very reasonably priced. Bottle of beer or Margarita only 15 pesos! One of our favourite places in Puerto Vallarta, always enjoy several time while on vacation there.
