Everything is amazing. The cocktails, service and food. Beyond amazing low drink and food prices, an amazing Malecon people watching spot. You will not be disappointed.

Fantastic food with very reasonable prices right along a busy street. Worth the wait to get in. All the pasta dishes are excellent, the sandwiches, too. The hot spinach dip is worth a visit itself.

While we are in PV we go at least once a week. Rodger and his staff are very accommodating and so friendly. We have tried about half the menu items and none of them have been disappointing. It really is the best💜

Depends on “how deep” into August. . . It’s an outdoor restaurant so they shut down early August through to early October cause it’s too wet and unpleasant to sit outside.
