Nice place to have dinner on a hot humid evening, as the restaurant has air conditioning inside the building. The menu is quite large, and the food is very good. prices are a bit mid-range and they have a full bar. Mexican menu with some seafood dishes.

Cafe De Olla is one of our favorite restaurants in PV. There food is very consistent and we have never had a bad meal and we probably eat there 4-5 times a week. Watch their Margaritas as they are very potent. They have dishes that are not on the menu and will make almost anything you want.

This place looks like a little taco shop but it's quite large inside. We had breakfast at least 3 mornings here. The price was right and loved the service. Be sure you try the cafe de olla. You won't regret it. In fact you'll try to make it at home. I guarantee it.

DO NOT let the street view affect your decision to go. Just a few blocks from the ocean front restaurants that charge double for food that is not nearly as authentic or delicious. We've been coming here the last four years. We eat at least four meals each time and try new dishes. Their platter for two with lobster tail... More

The clientele here is mixed between locals and tourists. The food is pretty good and mostly all Mexican items. Taste and quality seemed fairly good. But we noticed that other Mexican restaurants (that we have not yet tried) seem to rate better here.

Excellent food and service. Good atmosphere to enjoy a great meal. Waiters would come around often to ask if we needed anything else and ask if everything was ok
