So many great taco places around and 90% cheaper than this gringoized place. House wine, small glass 120 pesos. No thanks.

Simple menu—choice of 4 proteins in taco, quesadillas, vulcan, or potato platter form. Very good. Great service, too.

We have heard great things about this restaurant. BUT!!!!! It was a very big disappointment to us. The tacos are super mini. About 3” in diameter. The meats Asada, chulet and pastor were good but nothing to write home about. Nothing special considering the absurd...More

The food was really great! Our group tried different tacos, quesadillas and daily special. I recommend especially pastor, that was something that everyone liked. There are many places in PV with great fish tacos, but Don Chava seems to be best with meat. Notice that...More

We heard about this relatively new restaurant...and we now know what all the buzz was about! Taco stand goodness...in a nice clean restaurant...with a great bar. Reasonable prices too! The staff is helpful and friendly...and Gerardo makes a strong Cadillac Margarita!

Tiffany and the other workers are precious. The tacos are terrific. The restaurant is well-designed and decorated. The popular upscale Italian restaurant next door is owned by the same man. We went back 4 nights in a row we loved it so much.
