We’ve been to this place every time we come. The people are so nice and the food is always good. Plus, it’s a great view and always interesting getting there! Make reservations if it’s busy time of year and a weekend.

This is a very traditional dining experience. They don't advertise, nor do they pay taxi drivers to steer passengers their way. Their food is outstanding, but the prices are very reasonable. Most of the staff have been there many years, and perform their assignments with...More

Upon first glance, this looked fabulous! Then it was down hill. We arrived a bit early, and while most would offer bar seating and take up there - this did not happen. We were on our own. They said "table would ready in a few!"...More

We truly enjoyed our dinner at El Panorama. The restaurant sits up on the cliffs of PV and has an incredible view of the city and ocean. A great idea is to arrive at sun set. The restaurant is older, but in a good way...More

Our establishment opened its doors in 1973 and has maintained its reputation as one of the premier restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. Our view is unrivaled in Vallarta as we are located on top of Hotel Suites La Siesta on a hillside 4 blocks from the beach and boardwalk (malecon) in the very heart of El Centro. We have two rooftop terraces and two indoor salons that have commanding views of the entire Bay of Banderas and city with its array of red tiled rooftop. Our menu is international and features flambe cooking right at your table as well as our unique caesar salad, desserts and flamming coffees. Our restaurant is rich in history and tradition and should be part of what all tourists are looking for: good food, service and that special ambiance.
