“Awesome Few”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

Having gone to PV for many years, this is the first time we tried Ah Carumba for dinner. My wife picked this place to go on Valentino Day. What a surprise!!To start you are greeted and made to feel that you have your very own special waiter. And the view is just awesome. I don't think you will find a better view in a restaurant in PV than this. Great selection on the menu. My wife had the coconut shrimp, and declared one of the best in PV. I had the garlic shrimp, and they tasted fantastic. Next time we decided to try the shrimp platter for two. It looks enormous. Service was great. And on this evening, all ladies received a red carnation. Even as we left the little boy escorted my wife up and down the stairs and into the cab. Don't miss this place for that special dinner. Yes,it is on the pricey side, but well worth every peso. The only down side to our evening was, the Margarita's were made a little different, and not to our liking. Will be back next winter for sure.

“Excellent food, view”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Rooftop view of city and bay was spectular at night. Food was exceptional. Wait staff friendly and very eagar to serve. Certainly is off the beaten path...and we were a bit concerned about where the taxi driver was taking us....but was very pleased with the experience.

“Wonderful view, excellent service and good food in copious quantities.”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

An interesting taxi ride to get up there!!! Would not want to try it in the rain. Highly recommend for special occasions. My only complaint was that the vegetables were underdone, almost raw..

“The food is phenomenal”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

Very high on the hill so you get an amazing view of the city at night. The food is the best I've had in PV. The Mahi Mahi is still on my mind and the tortilla soup is out of this world. Great drinks and atmosphere. This place is a "dont miss"!

“VIP View!!”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

Can you say, Wow?! The view is to die for. Make sure to bring your camera, you'll be taken back by the view! Oh, bring a light jacket, it's chilly up in the mountains. But if you forget to bring one, they have nice soft ponchos!! The food is amazing too!!
