Just got back from a great dinner at Melissa's. GREAT Shrimp Ceviche. Snapper was presented to the table before cooking, just in case you'd like to try it - TRY IT! So, so good. Good drinks. Shots offered afterward. Great service. Attentive, family-owned atmosphere. This out of the way restaurant is a gem. Taxis have trouble finding it, so be ready with a calle name.

Melissa's is a family owned business located a couple blocks up from the Malecon. Melissa is warm and friendly- everyone makes you feel instantly at home. We both had shrimp dishes- they were delicious. Restaurant had a mix of tourists and locals.

This place was a bit off the beaten track, but so worth it. The meals were fresh, prepared and presented by either the owner or a family member.

Our family ordered the shrimp and fish -- both of which were fresh, simply prepared, but incredible.

It took us three days to find this restaurant. It is small and tucked up in a neighborhood about 3 or 4 blocks from the malecon....but very well worth the search. Not a fancy place, but very fresh fish and seafood, prepared well and served with pride, and place we will find again and again on our next trip.

this was our second trip to Melissa's - and again it didnt disappoint. The whole Red Snapper was garlicky and so delicious. The staff was attentive and very friendly. Will definately make it for a third trip next time we are in PV.
