We went here in late sept and had a great visit with Marcos as our server. He went above and beyond to make it a great night for us even though it was raining and we couldn't sit on the beach. I had the tortilla soup which was outstanding, my husband loved his beet salad. We had fish and shrimp entrees which we loved and the fish of the day and key lime pie. The cactus margarita's were also delicious. Marcos did an outstanding job taking care of us and we will be back.

We were walking along the boardwalk and saw this magical place walked in and sat down. We not only had a wonderful lunch but stayed watched the sun setting and also had dinner. The food was fantastic and the waitstaff was wonderful. After dinner we wanted "munchies" which they did not have on the menu. The waiter left the resturant and got us some munchies. WOW!

This was our 2nd trip to PV and dining here again was one of the top things on our "to do" list.

Dinner here on the beach when the sun sets is most romantic with the amber lights twinkling while you dig your toes into the sand. The food was extraordinary and save room for the exquisite desserts offered.

Service was just right, relaxed and efficient.

This elegant restaurant is right on the beach. You can dine under cover or on the beach under an umbrella. The food is excellent and the service is wonderful. The wine prices are steep so pay attention to prices before you order. My husband and I go to this restaurant every time we go to PV.

Very nice restaurant, easy to find and get to. Great beachside seating and also nice indoor seating and ambiance. Try to get there so that you are finishing dinner at sunset. It might can get cool and the lighting isn't that good once the sun is down. Candlelight is romantic but then you can't see your food. I know it was a good presentation.
