1$ US margarita and beers (Pacifico and Modello) and very good snack foods. The pizzas are especially good. The view on the boardwalk, the sea and the sunsets is fantastic. Would go back at least 2-3 times a week everytime i go to Puerto Vallarta if the prices stay like that

We seated ourselves, not welcomed, not busy, took a drink order and did not offer us a food menu. Felt like we were an inconvenience. No service after that till we asked for cheque. Nice view , no fun atmosphere like I was given to expect. Write off.

You can almost always trust the recommendations of other vacationers, when looking for a good place to eat! That's how we found Cheeky Monkey, on the Malecon, in Puerto Vallarta. The food was great, (tended toward an American menu), the sunset view is beautiful (if you get there in time), and the margaritas and beer were $1 each! The second... More

The Malecon has a number of great restaurants and the Cheeky Monkey does not disappoint. Be sure to try a burger as you people watch from the second story with a beautiful view of Banderas Bay.

We stopped by Cheeky Monkey a couple times to enjoy the cheap $1 and $2 drinks and then were impressed by the amazing views, decent service and good food. Portions were large and the menu has lots of options.

We enjoyed stopping by the Cheeky Monkey for a few drinks and snacks. It was a girls day out shopping, and we decided to check it out. The view is great, and the service was really good. We all got a fresh, cold facecloth to freshen up. Our food & drinks came fast, considering it was very busy! :)

We make a point of stopping in when we go to the malecon in PV. They have great cheap margarittas and a clean bathroom. We always go to the top floor and spend at least an hour watching the birds diving in the water for fish in the ocean! Great place to just sit back and relax from shopping! Staff... More

How can you complain about such a great view and $1 beers and margaritas? The margaritas probably only had a couple of drops of tequila in them, but that suited us fine as we weren't looking to get drunk, just enjoy a nice drink with a great sunset!
