If you have the opportunity to visit this restuarant you will not be disappointed. The location, the food, the service, the atmosphere are all superb. Beyond a doube they serve the best jumbo shrimp in PV. We highly recommend Cuale Paradise.

The restaurant is located at a quiet bend in the River Cuale upstream from the Malecon. Tables are outside on both sides. The ambiance is wonderful and is matched by the food. It is out-of-the-way, so expect to pay a bit extra for the cab...More

When you get there they will provide the menu. I do not think it's online anywhere but their menu is in English and Spanish and there prices are very reasonable. They also have a wide variety of food.
