We visited for dinner during our vacation and had a wonderful time. The service was prompt and friendly, excellent food and drinks. The rooftop patio was a fun atmosphere to enjoy our meal. Highly recommend the bucket of shrimp for a refreshing appetizer, served on ice with plenty of shrimp to share.

Went here for dinner and fell in love with the place and staff. Everyone was so nice helpful. The food was very good, we ordered fish and chips, shrimp tacos (WOW!) and fish tacos. I also had a delicious sangria drink.

Our group of four were shopping and decided to stop for a late lunch and drinks. The second-floor dining area is lovely, open to the air with a view looking onto the street below, covered with big umbrellas. Fans keep the air moving. We enjoyed 2 for 1 mojitos: the ginger one has powerful flavours and goes down too quickly,... More

Best fish and chips this side of the Atlantic. The mojitos are to kill for. All the waiters are named "Joe", but Geraldo was our waiter and he took excellent care of us. Did I mention the mojitos are to kill for? The ceviche sampler was great and I couldn't decide which I likes best; octopus, shrimp aquachili, or the... More

I swear the fish I had with my all-you-can-eat fish and chips was actually juicy AND flavorful and tender. It's quite frankly the best fish and chips I've eaten. Now I am an American so I defer to the Brits when it comes to the Best of fish and chips but Joe Jack's is better than anything I've found in... More

You MUST visit this restaurant when in PV. Everything from food, drinks, service, value, and location was perfect. I had the best fried red snapper here, sooo fresh and perfectly cooked. The ceviche sampler was amazing as well, and all the drinks we tried were delicious. The owner was super friendly as well and stopped by everyone's table to chat... More

We were just taking a walk down a street and saw several people standing on the sidewalk in front of this little taco place. The people told us these were the best tacos around, go put our name in and wait. So we did and were not at all disappointed. Kind of a tight fit, but totally worth it.
