9 of us stayed in a condo in PV for a week and used Benjamin from Gilmar as our caterer for breakfasts, lunches, and dinners and he was fantastic! He cooked anything we wanted including all the usual mexican dishes, but also pasta dishes, etc. Just ask and it was delivered, home cooked, and with a very pleasant attitude. He... More

Loved Gilmar the first visit, but it seems to have gone downhill every visit since then. It took 40 minutes just to get the tableside salsa which was very good. The coconut shrimp was good, not great. The cheese stuffed steak was very good. Despite the pretty good food the service is horrendous. Not sure if I'll return because there... More

Went to Gilmar last night after having a great meal with great service there last year. What a disappointing dining experience. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table since the place was packed. After we finally got seated, we waited for about 10 minutes for menus. We ordered tortillas soup, and a molcajete bowl with chicken to... More

Off the beaten path, you would expect something totally different than over blown priciing, and attitude from waiters. This was two years ago, but from someone who eats out EVERY night, I have never wanted to go back

Gilmar Restaurant is our weekly favorite for home-cooked Mexican food. Benjamin and his staff are the friendliest folks in town and service is excellent. Gilmar is famous for having the most incredible salsa with grilled tomatoes prepared to your liking at your table. Favorites are the Mocajetes (fish, shrimp or meats prepared/served in volcanic mortars), multiple fish dishes, various steaks... More

I walked by Gilmar's and peeked at the menu and decided to give it a try - Boy, did I luck out - Within 30 minutes the place was filled - The service was amazing - My waitress made my salsa tableside asking me each time how much of and what I'd like in it (roasted tomatoes? hell yeah!) -... More

Buffet is cheap, 68 pesos for breakfast, but not many options and takes them forever to refill the buffet table.

Heard some great things about this place for breakfast, but I was disappointed. Food was ordinary at best. Staff didn't help or offer assistance at all. Would not return.

Out of the way for some but it's worth the few block walk to find.
