This was terrible. Filet mignon was over cooked and tough. It was considered the special. Was the same price as the menu. The pepper sauce was brown gravy. Disappointed all around.

Went here twice the food was so good. Call ahead if you want to see the Mariachis as they change the days a lot. Ask to sit by the rail so u can see the ocean. The garlic shrimp was excellent. If you like white wine ask them to chill it as soon as you get there.

We stopped because we were hungry and hadn't really researched options on the Malecon. We were so happy we stopped! The homemade tortilla chips were so good, as was the salsa! Our entrees were great, coconut shrimp and mahi mahi! And of course, great margaritas!

First the Large Shrimp are small! Then they show up shell on ! Then they are so over cooked the shell adheres to the meat. It was impossible to eat. Another family member had a steak half was cooked right the other half was rare. This place is the worst food I've ever had in PV.

It was a real pleasure to have good mexican food at reasonable prices. There is nothing fancy about this restaurant, but if you like flavorful dishes you will not be disappointed.

I had the chile rellenos . I have never had one this good before. The pepper was firm and tasty. I am used to mushie and disgusting. I highly recommend this place. We all enjoyed our meals.

On our way downtown for breakfast and shopping, my wife asked our taxista for a place with view. Found it! Right out over the Malecon on the second floor, with a gentle breeze and an unblocked panorama of the bay. The view, regardless how fine, is no reason to recommend a restaurant, and these folks have the goods, at least... More

We had one of the best tables in the house overlooking the beach walk. The staff is very pleasant. The food was good. The view was beautiful at sunset. Classic Mexican restaurant.

During the week, myself and 2 others were hungry so we headed to La Chata restaurant and headed upstairs. We were seated along the balcony with a great view along el Malecon.
