Description: Pavo Real by the Sea is an intimate, magical restaurant at the edge of the best beach in the world. You will come for the gorgeous view, you will come back for the incredible food prepared by Chef Alfonso Gonzalez and the attentive service and excellent wine list. Enjoy cocktails in the open-air bar at the edge of the beach, then choose a table in the garden or in the cozy salon decorated with original art, sit back and let us serve you a meal you won't be able to forget. The menu includes fresh foie gras, local fish and seafood, rack of lamb, beef tenderloin, bouillabaisse...And more. For a really special occasion, reserve a private romantic dinner on the beach. We look forward to your visit.

We were staying at a nearby resort and found this gem! We called and made a reservation and when we arrived we were taken by van to the beach! The ride through the jungle was beautiful and very tropical. When we arrived we were greeted by the staff and we were escorted down on the patio to have a drink by the ocean. After a few cocktails, we were seated at a table outdoors and started with a great bottle of wine and fresh fois gras, it was delicious. We then ordered our dinner dishes, I had a special which was a beef tenderloin and a large lobster tail and my companion had the fish of the day. Both dishes were stunning, satisfying and tasted divine. The chef briefly came out and talked to us and the service was beyond amazing. The entire staff took care of us and were very attentive. We finished up with coconut flan and Mexican coffee. They put on a fabulous show with fire and some skill while making the Mexican coffee table side! Make sure you order it!!!! This is a delightful little restaurant and exceeded my expectations, I would recommend it to anyone looking for quiet spot to have a great dinner experience.

Had a very nice pleasant dinner with my wife. The view is very nice. A chauffeur picks you up at the entrance and drives you through the mangroves( feels like you are in Jurassic Park) which is very cool. For appetizer I had the mushroom soup and my wife had the scallop soup and they were equally excellent. For dinner I had the lamb which was excellent. My wife had the infused squid which was delicious as well. The cost if paid by pesos was about $15 less than if you paid by US Dollars. Always be conscious that the restaurants don't always give the best exchange rates
