Our cab driver lied to us about the restaurant we had chosen to visit, told us it had changed ownership and was no good anymore. He then proceeded to take us to Ah Caramba which he highly recommended. We discovered that everyone in the restaurant had been brought there using the same scam. Deceived into believing that Ah Caramba was... More

Other than the spectacular view, and friendly staff... this is a cantina, no atmosphere , very average food, and priced higher than beautiful restaurants w/ interesting food, prices that are equal or lower... and great views.

Two different taxi drivers recommended Ah Caramba so we made this our first restaurant dinner in PV. and everything was great. Let's start getting there. I recommend a taxi because you must travel up a steep hill to get there. You can walk if you prefer, of course. The reward for the climb is an open view of the bay,... More

OMG ---What a view! And the food was excellent as well! We had a friend recommend this place for dinner…. actually, it was the Mexican Coffee he talked about and how it was made at your table and added it had a great view. We had the Spanish Coffee with ice-cream and he was right on with that! We went... More

The coconut shrimp was amazing as well as the fish surprise. The Mexican coffee is a must. Reserve a table for a sunset view. Our service was good and the staff was very accommodating and entertaining. Although the restaurant was out of the Caramba shrimp, it looked amazing and we would love to go back sometime to try it. The... More

I wish they had eplainations for some of there food, I thought I was getting bacon wrapped shrimp only it was wrapped with cheese and ham then bacon, it was ok, not... More

I don't know which is better, the food or the view. Get here just before sunset and have one of the finest views we've seen anywhere we've traveled in the world. As to the food, the fillet mignon was cooked exactly as desire and was probably the best I've had in many years. Everything was done with a flair for... More

We have been in town for a month and have eaten at Ah Caramba twice and looking forward to our return. I recommend making a reservation ahead of time. The food is great as is the entire staff.

Take a taxi to the top of the hill for great views of Puerto Vallarta. We had an early dinner, so we're seated on the edge of the balcony area that looks out towards the ocean. Beautiful views. Service was excellent and our fajitas were not only tasty, but so filling we were able to have a nice lunch the... More

We were staying at the Sheraton, maybe a mile or so from this restaurant and decided to walk it. That was a mistake; should have taken a cab. The streets are tough to walk and it's uphill all the way. But once we got there, the view was pretty impressive. We had a nice corner table and the waiter took... More
