Being a restaurant reviewer and dining guide editor, I travel all around PV, tasting as I go. El Palomar is one of my fave spots of all, and there are a ton I adore! The last 2 birthdays have been celebrated on their veranda overlooking the Bahia de Banderas. We have ordered the most expensive item, a seafood extravaganza for 2. So much is presented that I have 2 lunches of leftovers. Sit back and enjoy the Andean music with pan flute. A special event all around.

The restaurant is set in what used to be a large family house. The view is fantastic, the food is fabulous, the music is great and the service is second to none. A unique experience, away from the crowds, yet only a ten-minute walk from the island downtown.

I think this restaurant opened fairly recently. It was a great find. It's a bit of a longer taxi ride than many of the other restaurants in the city, but well worth it. It's situated on a hill, and it has amazing views of the city, the water and the mountains. It seemed that every table in the house had an equally spectacular view.

The menu was mostly seafood, though some steak. My mother and I both had shrimp. The shrimp were huge and deliciously prepared.

I especially enjoyed the complimentary afterdinner drink. It's a homemade almond-flavored tequila. Yummy enough that I actually bought a bottle to bring home.

If anyone in your party has trouble with stairs, be forewarned that there are a lot and they're fairly steep.

Built in the mt. side overlooking PV, this place is unbelievable! We've been to PV 3 seperate times and make a point of going in the beginning and end of each trip. The atmosphere is great, live music and awesome seafood. Get the seafood combination platter...big enough for two.
