About 15-20 minutes #4 bus or 10 minute taxi ride out of downtown but worth the drive. Quiet riverside setting with delightful owner/chef, excellent Mexican food and service.

Had Dinner Twice here as the First Meal was Soooo Good! Try the Bacon Wrapped Jumbo Shrimp! Probably the Best Dish I had in PV! Wonderful Atmosphere by the Stream that runs by the Restaurant. Great Service from the Owners Daughter. We will definitely return when back in PV.

We took 25 people from our son's wedding party to Quale Paradise for dinner last night. Wonderful service. Everybody raved about their meals. Olympia special and the Paradise chicken were amazing! Don't miss this restaurant if your in PV.

Went there with wife and another couple. Loved every minute of the experience. The location, along the river, and the beautiful restaurant was awesome. The food and service was also very good. Three of us had the Minion Trio, with Chicken, Shrimp and Steak. Very good. Wife has the shrimp meal and loved it. Margaritas were great as well.

We just had a great lunch at Cuale Paradise. The bilingual, friendly wait staff will serve you on the Cuale River bank. A very clean and romantic restaurant. Bring a jacket for an evening dinner.

Second time here, amazing location. Good food, excellent service, but a completely unique experience. Driving through this little village looks sketchy, but once you get there you see why they call it paradise. Romantic and beautiful!

We went here for my wife's birthday last month. It was raining and during the slow season. We were the only ones there at this time. The staff was amazing and greeted us with a smile and small glass of rum punch. We were initially seated under cover while it rained, but as soon as the rain stopped they moved... More
