Cold Beer and great view for some but please do not try the food....at it's best it is bad.... it really seems at the high season a spot many ex-pats meet and greet and not much more than that.... attempted the food once and that was enough for me.

We spent a lot of time here. Food was great and we loved the $1 beer and Margarittas. The staff was amazing and so friendly which kept us going back. Give it a try.

When in Puerto Vallarta we always stop at the Cheeky Monkey for margaritas while over looking the Bay of Banderas. You can't ask for a more scenic stop with a fun, open atmosphere. We love the second story view and hanging with our friends chatting over margaritas and nachos.

Cheeky Monkey has a great setting with a wonderful view of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. The drinks are good for the price and some of the appetizers. A fun place to hang out when downtown.

Great place for breakfast and the staff are attentive & friendly. Loved the coffee - Mirabella from memory. Great green ham and eggs and kids devoured the buttermilk pancakes and the delicious milkshakes. "Best shakes ever"!

Also, they bring you ice cold washcloths to cool down with as you sit down. I have seen some people complain about... More

Great view, that's for sure! But when we arrived, we were sat down and informed that they didn't have everything on their menu. Why? Because their kitchen was closing for the season the next day. Understandable due to it being all outdoor, but when they have to go buy bottles of water to give to us, that's weird. Despite that,... More
