This restaurant does not care about surrounding residents-they blast out LOUD singing both morning and from 9PM to 2AM-last night I had to shut doors and windows. I have no idea why these people thing they sing to the whole river!

Stopped by here for lunch to escape the crowds on the malecon. We usually try to eat where the locals eat not something as touristy-aimed as this but I was pregnant so we had to stick to something that looked like it was catered to foreigners. We had the calamari appetizer. Calamari was ok but the sauce was a terrible mix of mayo/tartar sauce. My husband had the burger and I had the shrimp sandwich. The fries that came with both of those meals reminded me of school cafeteria food from my childhood. I've never had such terrible fries. The tiny five shrimp that came in my shrimp sandwich were not deveined. I'm sorry, you can't call yourself a "fine restaurant" and not perform such a basic culinary task at your restaurant. When I mentioned this to the waiter he just looked at me and walked away. This lunch experience ended up costing us nearly $50! We left quite disappointed.

We ate after shopping the central market! Beautiful ocean view with a breeze! The food was great!! The waiter was fun and paid special attention to us! He brought me a special drink with apple soda, grey goose, champagne, kiwi, and basil. It was Fabulous! Great prices! A must eat place for lunch !

The woman acting as a hostess is actually trying to sell tours - as if we don't get enough unwanted sales pitches while walking down the street, now we get one on the way to our table! The calamari appetizer was pretty terrible, and the grilled shrimp sandwich was unremarkable. Not the fresh, quality seafood you would expect in PV. (I had cheaper, fresher, tastier shrimp from a taco stand.) The staff started the meal great! As it went on, they seemed to lose interest in our table and it took 10 minutes to get the bill after it was requested. Then it was wrong. We finally got an accurate bill on the third attempt, after we went to stand at the bar, indicating our impatience. Save your money and go somewhere else unless you are only looking for atmosphere and alcohol.

We stopped for a rest had appys and drinks Hostess was nice staff was nice but when we left we left tip 44pesos approx 10% we only ordered a drink for each of us and our kids we ordered super basic appy nachos so no real service provided. But when he saw the tip he said this is not 16% we threw in 1$ US and left. We were there all but 20 min and the waiter only came to take order and drop off drinks and food. We normally tip very well but usually comes with axing service
