Stopped by Melissa's for lunch last week. Had a spinach salad and fish tacos with the tasty salsas they serve with taco chips. Great food, friendly service and the restaurant was very clean. I will surely visit Melissa's again.

Went opening night. Love this place. The food is always great. The service is exceptional. The owners are very friendly. And they have the best margaritas. We go at least once every year we are in PV.

After walking around the Malecon we were looking for a place to eat but wanted something less expensive than the tourist traps so we wandered a bit off the beaten path. We discovered Melissa's. We wandered in and looked at the menu and decided to...More

It is my understanding that they close down June 1st for the rainy season. You may want to check. Most local restaurants are pet friendly.
