My wife and I had a snapper entree, a salmon entree, tortilla soup, beet salad and a nice apple verrine for dessert. The beat salad was spectacularly presented as we're the other dishes. In typical Puerto Vallarta style, the service was impeccable. The sunset view...More

Okay. Mass produced. Good flavour but a lot of saucy dishes with yesterdays food. I wish they changed the food every day but it is much the same.

My eggs were done to perfection and the smoothie I had alongside my breakfast complemented the meal. Now, as an after brunch drink I’m enjoying a Bloody Mary just as I like it.

This restaurant was so good, I went there twice in two weeks. You should go too. Having an early dinner on the beach and watching the sunset was so great. The food was really good and service was excellent.

The main reason this restaurant is a MUST when visiting Puerto Vallarta is its setting and location. At night, dinner tables are placed on the beach and the dining with the sunset natural show after 6,30pm is a World Class experience. Service is attentive and...More

Hi. No you don't need reservations for breakfast or lunch or even early dinner (between 5 and 7). We went there on a Sunday late morning and there was a lot of room. Food was good also. Sorry don't know about Christmas.
