The last 4 or 5 years the food quality has really went up. Fantastic Mussels, Calamarie, and fantastic Mama Cheuy Shrimp. Shrimp stuff with Cheese and wrapped in Bacon served with a spicy blackberry sauce. Forget ordering lobster out, order this instead. Great meal at about 13 bucks. Ate here 5 or 6 times in my 4 week stay. 15... More

If you can get to this restaurant for an afternoon drink to watch the sunset you must! it is great. The staff are friendly, the margaritas are really good and cheap, and the calamari starter is a must try. We go back every-time we are in PVR. A must visit!

Years ago, this was a great place to eat and drink. For proof, look around at the packed places surrounding it while this one sits relatively empty. Don't be deceived by the cheap margaritas. I had trouble imagining mine had any tequila in it. The new menu features higher prices on everything - unfortunately the service or fare simply isn't... More

I always enjoyed this restaurant but after my most recent experience it goes to the top of my list. Even though I reserved a front row table for Mardi Gras well in advance other people were sitting there and refused to move (I even tried being nasty to them but it didn't help). The owner, Loretta, felt terrible and ended... More

This was our first visit to the Malecon and we stopped at Oceano located on the second floor to enjoy the view and eat some comfort food. We were rewarded in both regards: the view is amazingt and the sizzling plate of mixed fajitas and homemade tortillas were outstanding - tender, tasty and a generous portion. Service is attentive and... More

After a very disappointing visit for a sunset drink at Burros Bar (no service) we went to Oceano, very nice. They were attentive for the moment we stepped in, seated us immediately, our drinks & appetizers came quickly. Our group of four ordered pasta or fajitas - very tasty and plentiful! Tip for visitors - if you want a sunset... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local liquor store. Great views with exceptional food and good prices. The staff was very helpful and spoke great English too. I will definitely eat there again. All 6 of us had great food!

Came back again twice this year. Shared steak fajitas and drank margaritas. Meat was very tender. Drinks had plenty of tequila in them--and only 15 pesos each. Great view of the bay.

We always stop here for beers and margheritas to get our wives in the shopping mood in PV, (not that they need any encouragement.) Always a treat to sit and watch the bay and the people go by. Great food and cheap.
