Upon arrival you get a nice refreshing cold towel. Margaritas are usually on special and so are some Cervezas . The food is pretty average but reasonable price for the Malecon. Up on the second floor you can catch a nice breeze and while away the time people watching as well. Personable owners and the staff is quite good as... More

It was a lovely place to watch the sunset. We watched the parade below us on the Malecon, and thoroughly enjoyed our food. We ordered the all meat pizza and it was delicious and easily fed two people. Deep fried fish with assorted vegetables were also very good. The portions here are large and can be shared.

Food and Service is Good to Great, prices are fair to good. They have a smoking floor and a non smoking floor. Always a good view. Been there at least a dozen times, don’t go to PV without going there or to their sister restaurant Sea Monkey.
