This restaurant by far has the best view in Puerto Vallarta. The owner Peter is most gracious and Jorge our waiter was great. We had a party of 8 on a Friday so service was a tiny bit slow but to be expected. The road up has been much improved since our last visit ten years ago and is served... More

Very good friends insisted this was a must see experience in PV. Have to say that after a little searching and a little excitement driving myself up the one lane cobblestone trail, they were 100% on the money.. when you get there you are treated to a surprisingly special place. There are farm animals running around with a rooster that... More

The view is the best you can get. The road to it needs alittle work. Also it was by word of mouth that we found out about this gem. The food was great. Not over priced nor were the drinks. will go up there again ..

We went for dinner with a friend that had been before otherwise would not have know about this restaurant. The road up is quite crazy but the view and experience were worth the drive. Food was good but the experience and view were better. Highly recommend.

Las Carmelitas is the best place in Puerto Vallarta to witness awe inspiring sunsets and enjoy a satisfying and delicious meal. Perched on top of a 1000 foot ridge of the Sierras above Puerto Vallarta, it provides an unparalleled 270 degree vista of the city below, Banderas Bay and the towns and villages on the shore and a view of...

Was a little skeptical of this place after reading some reviews but decided on going for the view if anything else. We took a cab up to the top and the driver waited 2 hours while we ate and then drove us back to our resort. Cost was $1000 pesos (very reasonable $55 US). There were only 5 other people... More

Definitely enjoyed the view, but understand that if you go up to this restaurant it does cost you 100 pesos per person at the gate entrance. You can use it towards drink/food it you choose too. We used it on drinks which were good. We went in the afternoon and the owner suggested reservations so they know you are coming... More

We reserved a table for eleven people over the phone. We were expecting to go there and find the same great view we had the years before. During the reservation we were never told that the large, mountain top, well situated, large place restaurant would be closed. Were seated in the old restaurant, the one that was there before they...

It has been 4 years since going to Carmelitas. The location, view and experience is a good one. There really is no where else to get such a lovely night view of PV. But, my partner lost his wallet and we know he dropped it on the ground shortly after paying for our meal. Of course no one could speak... More
