After coming to PV for several years, this was our first time to El Palomar. We were seated in front of an incredible view of PV. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate so we didn't have a sunset but the meal and the service made up...More

The price for everything that they had was perfect. Not too high and not low, just right. Believe me, after you go there no matter what you pay it will be worth it. You will never stop going there.
