Been to Pavo before and had a great experience. This time it was not as good. The food was over cooked and service was a little slow. We will try again next time.

Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived. The table location on the lawn close to the water was ideal. The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive. We particulary appreciated their recommendation of a fine Mexican white wine that hit the spot.

Pavo Real by the Sea is an intimate, magical restaurant at the edge of the best beach in the world. You will come for the gorgeous view, you will come back for the incredible food prepared by Chef Alfonso Gonzalez and the attentive service and excellent wine list. Enjoy cocktails in the open-air bar at the edge of the beach, then choose a table in the garden or in the cozy salon decorated with original art, sit back and let us serve you a meal you won't be able to forget. The menu includes fresh foie gras, local fish and seafood, rack of lamb, beef tenderloin, bouillabaisse...And more. For a really special occasion, reserve a private romantic dinner on the beach. We look forward to your visit.
