This is hands down, my favorite little gem in PV! Tucked in near Pancho's Takos in a space that from the outside, looks to be much smaller than it actually is. Once inside, Thomas will treat you to the best (and most reasonably priced) meal...More

Nice view of the street. Cloth tablecloths and great service give you the impression that this an expensive restaurant but prices are very affordable and food was really tasty. Nice Mexican menu options.
