I had breakfast with a friend there and we both enjoyed our breakfast meal. The chilaquiles, enfrijoladas and omelets were all very good. Servers were very attentive.

We went to eat there for our anniversary. The view of the beach was to die for! The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous! The food was extremely good. The waiter ruined our experience! One of the most rude waiters I've ever had in my life! We are very friendly and courteous people. We just felt really uncomfortable! When you pay $150... More

Went here for a couples dinner after booking a table on OpenTable. Most salient memories: the tables on the beach are great for the view and breeze, but you do get people coming buy to ask you to buy things such as photos or kids trying to sell stuff. Drinks were the same standout. Can't remember what the special margarita... More

After two morning dives and some shopping in El Malecon, we were very hungry. A native Puerto Vallartan recommended this place, so we were happy to stop in and try. First off, it is a beautiful location, right in the middle of the Romantic Zone. Some of the tables are directly on the sand. We opted for a table for... More

This was hands down the best meal we had while in Puerto Vallarta. The location right on the beach looking over the Los Muertos pier is fantastic, the food was absolutely wonderful, the ambience was the perfect mix of upscale and casual, and the service was top notch. Our servers Cortez and Hugo were also absolutely wonderful with our two... More

After hearing so much about this iconic restaurant we made a reservation for dinner for 7 people for my husband's birthday. Everything started out well as we had a lovely table on the beach and ordered drinks and food. That's where the good experience ended. We were swarmed by bees at our table. The staff made no attempt to assist... More

We went there for dinner while staying at nearby Hotel Mousai. Very disappointed. Would have enjoyed staying at our hotel much better but the recommendations persuaded us to give it a try.

This was a great first restaurant experience in PV. The ocean/beach view is awesome. The service and food was great. The specialty margaritas were delicious.

A classic taste of Vallarta that is definitely a must do while here. I had the whole snapper and it was really good. I've seen mixed reviews of this place for some reason. We thought the food was great and the price reflected it as well as the location.

Just came home from a girls trip in Puerto Vallarta. La Palapa was our favorite spot for brunch on the beach and our last stop at night to listen to the live music. Will be back!
