“Good food and service on the beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

A group of eight of us had breakfast here. The restaurant is right on the beach in the 'romantic zone' of Puerto Vallarta. We each ordered something different and everything was marvelous and reasonably priced. Food is beautifully plated on nice china with linen tablecloths and napkins. They do come to the table offering a basket of sweet rolls to let you choose one to have with your coffee, but they neglet to tell you that there is a charge for each pastry.

Otherwise, it was a great experience.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

As always , great selection of food and good sized portion for the smaller dish. The catch of the day was excellent and the mussels were a little pricey but very good

“Great beach front restaurant with a touch of class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Probably the best part of this restaurant is it's location ON THE BEACH, Suffice to say that my wife and I had nothing bad to say about anything. Ambiance, food quality, price, service, interior decor; highly recommend . You will not be disappointed.

We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast with a first-class menu, a beach-side view and an incredibly relaxing ambience. The food was well-prepared and attractively presented.
