We stopped in by chance and had lunch. One of the best meals we had in PV and at a great price ! The carne asada was delicious as was the shrimp "hamburger" (really more of a shrimp sandwich on a hamburger bun). The French fries were the best in town! The service was wonderful.. and needless to say -... More

I will go to Gilmars at least twice a week when they reopen. The service is good and the food is great.

This place has the best salsa & chips we've had in PV (compared to MargaritaGrill). The staff were very accommodating and the food arrived hot and was delicious. This family has been in the restaurant business in PV for years and are a Mexican American family and speak English fluently. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to any of... More

What a find, this little neighborhood restaurant, for a lazy Sunday morning breakfast. The buffet really gets going about 9 am and for just 65 pesos (roughly 4 USD at the then-current exchange rate of 16:1) a bargain too! A chef will prepare your eggs to order or scrambled eggs are available on the buffet along with an assortment of... More

We started coming here when out kids were small when owned by Benjamin’s father and or uncle. It was a little hole in the wall with plastic chairs, a TV with Mexican soap operas playing up in the corner as you ate your fajitas, quesadillas or whatever was on the minimal menu. Once Benjamin took it over we watched this... More

As a surprise, our parents arranged for a home cooked meal in our rented condo. Benjamin from Gilmar prepared a fresh and delectable meal right in our kitchen. He brought all the ingredients for the meal and cooked using the pots, pans, and dishes we had. We watched him prepare everything and it smelled as wonderful as it tasted -... More

The food was awesome. Unfortunately for the owners we had the place to ourselves. It can hold a larger group. Our hotel called ahead and made reservations, but obviously not needed. All 3 of us ate a large meal with drinks and was only $44. Tortilla soup was so delicious. My daughter asked for a pineapple juice and they blended... More

This restaurant serves authentic Mexican food. The salsa is made at your table, and is delicious. We also had their avocado dip, which was fantastic. Drinks were good, and the food was wonderful.

After almost a month in PV I was looking for something simple and different. I'd only eaten Mexican food, mostly grilled fish and I wanted a change. To start I had two large servings of fresh OJ at a very reasonable 20 pesos each. I was having trouble deciphering the Spanish menu so I asked for an English one. My... More
