Had dinner at El Panorama after we found out vista view had closed. The view is not quite as good as Vista View was, but, still was very scenic. The drive there is rather unique. The broken cobble stone, and only a single, lane enough for one car. The elevator was working, only 4 people at a time. Service was... More

El Panorama offers a wonderful view of downtown Puerto Vallarta and the bay. The food remains well prepared even if slightly more expensive. Shrimp dishes are highly recommended. Experience Caesar salad made at your table. Complimentary drink after the meal. Our only disappointment was with the attitude of the chief and only waiter. The support wait staff were fine. But...

You come in and stand there and are totally ignored for at least ten minutes. Waiters going back and forth as if you are not there. Had reservations and stopped someone to tell them. No table was ready so they had to set one up. They started setting up a very small table for the four of us. We said... More

Great view from multiple balconies. Romantic location to take your sweetie. Good food. Surprise free drink at the end. Ladies were given a free rose. Good service. They really know how to treat you! Thumbs up! Only down side, there was a woman photographer with the restaurant who was eating with friends who was out of place. She was loud... More

Our food was pretty good but there are far better places to eat in PV. The view was incredible. Sat for over 10 minutes before recieving a menu or an attention from the wait staff. We learned to be more assertive with good results. Had a very good pepper steak but paid well for it.

The atmosphere, service and view at this restaurant was excellent. It is on the 7th floor of a hotel, and the interior is Old Mexico and very pretty. The food was average, and not impressive. But, the coffee service is a great show, so go for that!

The view of the city is every step up hill worth it. We ate a big variety of the menu since we was 9 people there. All of us had some sort of seafood and it was well cooked and tasted good. The price is very good for a great meal and an amazing view.

Thank Carina J

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.
