We believe that this restaurant is owned by the same people who delight at Trio just a few blocks away. What a wonderful way to pass the lunch time watching the world go by while enjoying great food and drinks. I suggest the gazpacho soup which was cool, fresh, frothy, with just a little peppery taste. My companion ordered the... More

Perfect Sunday evening in PV: watch all the happy couples (some pretty snazzy dancers/dressers) dancing by the bandstand in the main plaza by los arcos, then join the crowd strolling the malecon at sunset, then sit down at your reserved table (Do reserve!) at Vitea for the tastiest people-watching the town offers. Right now a flareup of an autoimmune disorder... More

One of my two favorite lunch places, CoCo's Kitchen being the second one. You can sit back and relax, watch the tourist stroll by along with street entertainers and enjoy the ocean. This place has it all, great food, service and casual ambiance!

I enjoyed sitting by and having a drink while listening to the gentleman playing the saxophone. Good food and friendly staff. Just a stones throw away from the more electric part of Malecon.

This restaurant has a great location on the Malecon. Sunsets are phenomenal. The restaurant is the little brother of Trio but has a better location and is more casual. Food tasted was very good. We tried the quinoa salad with shrimp which tasted great and the eggplant ravioli with chorizo on the side. The restaurant offers half portions of some... More

I am honestly usually skeptical about places a concierge suggests, but this place was perfect! Very reasonably priced, right on the Maleacon Boardwalk. Quite good prices for an awesome meal. Great food - my teenagers demolished the cauliflower appetizer when they don't usually even touch cauliflower, and they also barely let me have any calamari it was so good! They... More

Cute restaurant on the malecon with sidewalk seating available and great views. The breakfast menu offers a wide variety. I loved my omelet and the portion was large. The sweet rolls are amazing. I have trouble finding coffee I like at most PV restaurants but the coffee here was very good. Service was very attentive. Hope to try dinner here... More

We usually eat here on our yearly visit to PV. My wife especially likes the outside eating on the Malacon with the constant flow of people walking by. We had a nice meal with good service at a reasonable price. Will be back next year.
