As soon as I had booked my trip to Puerto Vallarta a few months ago, I immediately made a reservation to return to this restaurant that I visited (and reviewed here) back in 2011. I was happy to return here last night. The restaurant's balcony offering what I consider one of the best views in this town. Perfect for sunset... More

The filet was tender and melted in your mouth, the shrimp where huge more like the size of prawns. The... More

What an amazing restaurant. We went here on a Saturday night in the off season, we were one of two tables in the entire place, which was incredible for us but a pity for the restaurant because it deserves to be packed every night. Quite honestly, the view was something out of a movie, and the decor was old Mexico,... More

I have been to this place over 40 times, heck maybe more. Once you go to this place you never want to stop. They have the best service, the best food, the best drinks, you got to try their special tequila or their flaming coffees and they have the best desserts, try the fried bananas with ice cream. This place... More

So we enjoyed a very "romantic" family birthday at El Palomar. Loved this place!! Will definitely return for date night. The view from the dining room is simply amazing and the lighting is mostly candlelight. The staff is super friendly and the food is good, we had beef fajitas and a mixed seafood plate for two. The beef fajitas I... More

A friend of ours from Hawaii told us about this place before we came to Puerto Vallarta so we had to try it and I'm glad we did. The food was awesome, and our waiter "Victor" was great and friendly. We also orders the Banana's Foster and they flambé at our table. It's a must place to have a romantic... More

This restaurant is like going back in time in Puerto Vallarta. Classic foods maybe Elizabeth Taylor would have been offered. The decor is full of old style Mexican touches. The kind of restaurant that needs decades to develop into what it is today. One of my favorite treats here is the Flaming Coffee. Very romantic and great to see at... More

When the cab dropped us off we were not sure where we were but we were pleasantly surprised. The views here are breathtaking. The food is phenomenal..Fresh seafood, fresh pasta, tons of options. They make Caesar salad table side,... More
