Me and my boyfriend visited this place and we were both extremely disappointed! The service was horrible, the food was disgusting and also gave us both food poisoning on our last day in Mexico. We both ordered pizza and we were the only people there...More

Whenever we visit the Malecon in Puerto Vallarta it's always a must stop at the Cheeky Monkey. Always cold beer and delicious margaritas, have never tried the food but it all looks delicious. Such a great view to relax and overlook the bay.

Best view over the Malycon boardwalk, good music and varied selection of beers. Try to sit near the open windows for views & people watching

Stopped in here based on tip from a local. They had $1 beers and margaritas, and who can argue with that. Sits on the second and third floor above another restaurant so the view of the bay is perfect! Chicken enchiladas were very tender with...More

My wife and I stopped at the Cheeky Monkey as we were walking the boardwalk. We passed quite a few places before we decided. Now I could be gentle but, NOT. The food was awful, service was poor, and overpriced compared to the many delicious...More

I can't believe this restaurant has so many good reviews. I had lunch there yesterday ate one of the three fish tacos and left the rest. The table was about three inches off level and after seeing me trying to fix it the host finally...More

They accept credit cards, but I suggest using Pesos. They also accept Dollars and their receipt is both in Pesos and Dollars. Best place to get pesos is at the ATM. We usually use HSBC or Sandara [both are "RED"]. Mega is... More
