Liked this restaurant so much we ate here 4 times during our week in PV. Be sure to have the watermelon/tomato/goat cheese salad - delicious!! Can sit and eat on the beach if you get here in time for a table, otherwise just sit and eat on the open air deck above.

The food excellent - not exactly fine ding, but beautifully prepared and uniformly tasty... More

The sunset is beautiful from here. They pull the shades up and it's right on the beach, off Mexico Street. Their appetizers are great and the price is perfect for a very causal lunch or dinner.
