“Tenth anniversary dinner that did NOT disappoint! Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We came here 3.5years ago with our then 7 month old daughter. This time we came without our kids to celebrate our 10th anniversary. The night before this we got 2 hours sleep and we just wanted a nice meal. When we were last here we didn't review this place but we loved it. The Waiters looked after our daughter while we enjoyed the great food and romantic view. This time, kidless, it was all about the romantic view. The service was excellent, in fairness the restaurant opened for the season last week and we were the only ones in there....if you can't get good service from 4 waiters when you are the only patrons then you might as well just join them because the soccer game they are watching would have to be amazing. As it was, mex was beating panama 1-0 and the service was still excellent. They even brought us out a special "happy anniversary" cake on the house. We are here for 4 days and will go back again. We have celebrated our anniversary in Florida, cabo, Greece, Paris, ixtapa and this one was truly memorable.

“Our new favorite restaurant in PV”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

We wanted to go somewhere special on our last evening here in PV and decided to try Casa Isabel, after this restaurant came highly recommended by others that had left comments in the guest book of our condo nearby. We had a perfect evening! The staff was attentive, the food outstanding and plentiful, and the view was breathtaking! Arturo, our waiter, encouraged us to enjoy our drinks and take our time to see the sunset, and we never felt rushed. He also took the time to show us around the upper level of the restaurant, which has another bar and dining area for special events. This restaurant will become one of our "regulars", for sure!!!

“Excellent cuisine and service and what a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We spent a week at Casa Isabel (see separate review) and enjoyed dining there, the food was superb and we had some of our favorite dishes right there. We were there during Restaurant Weeks so many restaurants had excellent dishes, but the cuisine and the staff at CI is really great and we can't wait to return!

“Delicious Food with a fabulous view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

One of the best meals we had in PV and the view was worthy of postcards. The restaurant is part of a boutique hotel - one that I'd like to explore next time we are in PV. The thatched roof is lined with fairy lights, giving is a festive and warm ambiance. It is a great spot to watch the evening fireworks. The service was attentive, but not over-bearing. The Shrimp Al Pastor was simply delicious, and the ribs were juicy and fall off the bone good. Would definitely go back.

“Food was lacking during restaurant week”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is always one of my favorite spots. However, during Restaurant Week in May, the food just wasn't that good. It started with crab cakes (which were tasty). The main entree of Veal Osso Buco with risotto was extremely fatty. My friends could barely eat it without getting lots of fat in every bite. I tried the Mar y Tierra - tenderloin that was ordered medium, had no pink and was tough. The small lobster tail was just ok. The Crème Brulee for dessert was good but overly sweet. I've had much better meals at this restaurant in the past so hopefully was just an off night for the chef. Yes, I could have sent the steak back but my meal would have lagged everyone elses. The best thing about this restaurant is the fabulous view. I took a couple of Mexican friends to dinner here so hopefully they will come back and try it again. Will I go back? Yes, but will definitely order different food choices.
