The food is excellent, a Swiss chef makes the evening very interesting and a good wine list rounds things off nicely...the evening entertainer is very good especially for an older crowd. Service is excellent and the beach view sunsets are spectacular.

My wife and I love this place. The open-air seating, view of the sea, good service and excellent cuisine prepared by the German chef-owner make this a special place. We love the selections on the menu and the 2 for 1 happy hour up til 6:30. We have yet to be disappointed.

My first meal here was last year - I had the Ocean Trilogy pasta - grilled seafood with pasta in a cognac sauce. One of the best meals I've ever had - said I would fly back to PVR just for that meal - I did this year and it was still fantastic. Sitting on the patio watching the sunset... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our recent stay in Puerto Vallarta. We dined during happy hour so drinks were two-for-one. The service was fast and very friendly but we did not feel rushed. Presentation of the food was very good and quantities were more than ample. Particularly pleasing to me was the inclusion of the German dish "Rouladen" on... More

Crowded at happy hour. Little Italy in PV. Nice soft music with Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra music in background. We had Shrimp cocktail in an interesting sauce overlying the bowl. Had the Large Shrimp over risotto, Which was very good. Alejandro was our waiter and did a great job.

We were initially ignored by staff, when we first arrived for our dinner reservation. The young staff members were too busy chatting amongst themselves. We drew there attention and advised them of our reservation for six. From that point on, service was good to excellent. The mixed greens alad was large, very fresh, imaginitive in its contents (including chunks of... More
