Lori and I and some other long time Puerto Vallarta residents have been banned from the Sea Monkey/ Cheeky Monkey by owner Troy because he wants us to pay him $2100 pesos for 1/2 thick glass tables that were chipped and cracked at the corners and claims we are responsible for the tables, he let us know this 2 days after the fact and he was not even there. 1/2 inch thick, you could break a beer bottle on these tables, the waiters pushed the 2 tables together, we ate and drank on them, nothing broke. When I asked him to see a picture or the tables, he got upset and said do you think I am lying although he was not working that night, we have spent a lot of money and brought alot of people to both his establishments and we obviously will never spend another dime or recommend his places, we shall share this truth to everyone, how could people eating and drinking, chip 2 1/2 inch thick glass tables, it obviously happened when the waiter pushed the table together and he did not want to be responsible and told the owner that we did it, when I asked Troy how could we have done this, he just said his decision is we are guilty and did not want to hear anything else about it, pay $2100 or get out and never come back. Imigine having dinner and drinks at a restaraunt and 2 days later you go back for another visit and the owner want you to pay for his tablecloth, ashtrays tables or glasses that he says you damaged during your visit, again after the fact with no proof at all. He just does not care and has this gigantic ego that thinks his place is the only place. WA WA WA, Troy wont let me spend my money in his Business! What a joke and If you think you do not need the local money and people promoting your business to visitors espeacialaly during summe, you are sadly mistaken. If he does not care it speaks for itself, beware locals it could happen to you if you visit the Sea Monkey or Cheeky Monkey. I will be bringing my guests somewhere else from now on and suggest you do the same.

Sea Monkey is undergoing renovations, but they're still more than happy to serve you $1 beers on their incredible stretch of the beach right at the south end of the Malecon and north end of the Romantic Zone. We loved the location, the service, the front row seats watching pelicans circle and dive beak-first for fish and their squeaky-clean bathrooms. Put it on your must-do list for at least a few afternoon beers.

The Sea Monkey is a brand new restaurant in the location that used to be Epoca. It has no afiliation to that restaurant or any of the reviews prior to May. The Sea Monkey is only open for drinks as of today (May 15) but will be serving food in a couple of weeks when the new kitchen is finished. It is owned and operated by the same folks who own Cheeky Monkey on the Malecon. So if you like Cheeky Monkey you should love Sea Monkey (and the best drink prices on the beach--all day, every day.) The menu isn't fianlized yet but they said they will probably have food similar to Cheeky Monkey to start.
