“Good Food, Great View!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Taxi driver recommended it. Have to travel up the mountain a bit, but well worth it. The view was awesome! The food was excellent. We had a sunset dinner overlooking the ocean. It was a little more than we planned to pay, but did not mind it.

“Breathtaking View...Amazing food...LARGE portions”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

The view is so stunning it's hard to even describe. We loved this place!!!! The food was so tasty... there is a mushroom appetizer that I was gobbling up! The lobster was amazing, the tamales, yum!!!! Be aware though, it is on the expensive side for PV, but the portions are HUGE! You can easily share with at least 2 adults.

“Gorgeous location, good food.”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

The location is just beautiful - such a view! The seafood was a bit over-cooked for my taste, but couldn't beat the view. And seemed like a family-run place. So friendly with our toddler.

A friend of mine, who lives in Mexico, along with our taxi driver came up with Ah Carumba in response to our request of going to a unique, but authentic restaurant. We were NOT disappointed. The view was amazing, as was the food. The portions were beyond expectations and the taste was excellent. The service was also top notch. We highly recommend this restaurant!

“A fabulous meal to be had by all, and what a view!”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

We took the somewhat long cab ride from the Grad Mayan to 'Ah Caramba.' Up the steep hill to the restaurant to find nothing short of a fantastic view! We loved the fresh guacamole that they made at our table and the food portions were gigantic! I don't know how they manage to serve such huge portions at such reasonable prices. You can easily share many of their dishes. Everyone ordered seafood and it was spectacular! The presentation and the flavors were out of this world! We ordered the Mexican coffee for desert and what a treat that was. They make it at your table and it is a wonderful presentation as they prepare it. I wish more people would review this wonderful find of a restaurant so that it will move up in the ranks. It deserves to be at the top, and hopefully someday it will be. The servers were so very attentive and we enjoyed each one of them. If I ever go back to the area, I will make going to 'Ah Caramba' a priority, you should too. :-) Take a look at their website to see the portions they serve, and the view. Their website is www.ahcaramba.com
