100 restaurants in PV better??

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... read 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.

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.

We have tried a lot of the menu items here, and really can't find one favorite, they have all been great. The stuffed fish dishes are fantastic, and the Molcajete was awesome, first time having that here! We will be back.

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

Nice restaurant. Great service, very good food, good prices. Two of us had the fish filet Isabella and it was very flavorful served with a shrimp sauce and pasta with a cheese sauce. Another had the fish filet Pirey and he really enjoyed it. Reasonable prices, most under 200 pesos. A bit loud. Overall I liked it but have tried... More

We went with friends. Together we enjoyed attentive but unobtrusive service, good food, music and a lovely quiet environment. The food was delicious. I ordered a particularly spicy version of a regular dish and the waiter, careful not to burn gringo taste, checked with me to make sure I understood what I was ordering, I appreciated his care.
