Off the main track but spot on with the fare.

We decided to try El Brujo because a friend of ours had her wedding party here and said they did a great job. While it is not on the main drag it is definitely worth finding. This is a casual place with a nice mix of locals and tourists. The real hit was the food which was outstanding. We had... read more

A first visit was a good experience so we tried it again and were very disappointed. Service was adequate, but not terribly attentive even though there were only 7 customers for an early dinner. My husband's beef fajitas were overcooked and leathery dry...not edible. My ribs had good flavor, but they were so heavily coated in sauce I could not... More

After reading the reviews on trip advisor we decided to take our family for what we thought a very expensive dinner. Well I was quite impressed with not only the food but the price, there were 6 of us and the total came in at under $100. I would recommend anyone travelling to PV to go and have some amazing...

While it's a little bit out of the center of town (right after the tunnel) it has become a must go to place every time we are in P.V. We spend 4 months here and visit this restaurant every time we have friends or family coming to see us. The quality of the food and service is always excellent. The... More

Dropped in for lunch after reading the very positive reviews. I had the grilled fish and fresh vegetables. The salad was iceberg lettuce and a slice of tomato and cucumber. Very ordinary.

The avg rating blows my mind - this is easily my favorite restaurant in PV, even though they changed up the rice a bit. The margaritas are potent, the salsa is amazing (and they don't mind making it "mas caliente"), and I've yet to find anything on the menu that I haven't wanted to try again. A definite gem in...

El Brujo was recommended to us by locals and it was a delicious find. The menu is varied, prices reasonable, portions generous, and service friendly and well paced. There are many good food choices in this area, but you will want to return to El Brujo for sure.

Chose this based on our previous visit and remember the cerviche was good and plentiful. It still is. The remainder of the food and atmosphere was mediocre and we will probably write this one off

We had a craving for grilled shrimp and had heard that El Brujo did it well. We visited around 10 pm so the restaurant was pretty quiet. We did have the grilled shrimp and the grilled octopus, as well; the shrimp was tasty but the octopus was not very good - perhaps it was old. The service was decent and... More
