Visited the rooftop for sunset margaritas. Fantastic views and reasonable prices. Did not eat in the restaurant as we had a reservation elsewhere. Anyway, the restaurant menu did not really have vegetarian options.

On a recommendation of one of the concierges at our resort, we decided to bring in the New Year here. Besides the spectacular view and historical venue seemingly not updated since 1973 when it opened (would make an authentic movie set), everything else was disgusting....More

Our establishment opened its doors in 1973 and has maintained its reputation as one of the premier restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. Our view is unrivaled in Vallarta as we are located on top of Hotel Suites La Siesta on a hillside 4 blocks from the beach and boardwalk (malecon) in the very heart of El Centro. We have two rooftop terraces and two indoor salons that have commanding views of the entire Bay of Banderas and city with its array of red tiled rooftop. Our menu is international and features flambe cooking right at your table as well as our unique caesar salad, desserts and flamming coffees. Our restaurant is rich in history and tradition and should be part of what all tourists are looking for: good food, service and that special ambiance.
