I travelled to PV for my birthday and chose to have my birthday dinner here. They were very accommodating when we had to change our reservations. Our servers Manny and Alan were very attentive and their services were impeccable. We had the 5 course dinner...which is truly pricey for what you can get within the area but hey, it’s my birthday. :)More

Famous renowned place in Puerto Vallarta, too expensive for what it really is and is served, ridiculously high prices for sufficient quality, in Puerto Vallarta there are much better options at regular prices

This is our second time here. Both times we did the tasting menu with the wine pairings. Each time, it was an incredible experience. The food is unique and delicious and the service is impeccable. The habanero dessert and the cactus salad were highlights. Also,...our server team of Manny and Chema made sure we wanted for nothing. They were attentive, but also let us take our time to enjoy the experience. This is easily among one of the best restaurant experiences we’ve ever had.More

We have been coming here for over 20 years. It is still the best restaurant in Puerto Vallarta hands down. If you are looking for a very special experience this is the place. The food, presentation and ambiance cannot be beat. Simply the best.

Manny and Paco were wonderful. We had an amazing dinner, service and knowledge was beyond expectation. The habanero desert was unreal, as was the Nopales Agua Chiles. Please go, enjoy the wine, the harp music and treat your self.

Visually stunning and incredible food and drinks. We did the prefix chefs menu. Each course was better and better. It was decadent. We were celebrating a birthday and for dessert they brought out a special cake with sparklers. I look forward to returning.More
