|Excellent food. Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere to with our food. Loved the chocolate mouse. Liked that the wait staff was able to answer our questions about translating the menu items into English. Loved it all!
|Quiet, refined atmosphere, attentive and unobtrusive European service. Everything done with attention to detail, and PV's most complete and inviting menu. Memorable food and wines. We live in PV all winter and this is our favorite restaurant, also the favorite of our many guests. Second to none. Enjoy!
|We have been going to Vallarta for a number of years and found this jewel just last year. The food and service was superb - the Chateaubriand is incredible! We went both to lunch and dinner a number of time and each experience was delight! What a find.
|Oh, the food was incredible... There was the crisp duckling with an orange/brandy sauce and shrimp baked with creamy tomato/cheese sauce. Indescribable flavors.
