Food was really good. Only complaint is they didn't have either of my beer choices from the menu in stock.

This is about my 7th time here and i must say that they are consistently good if not great. The 2nd floor dining has a great view at sunset with a wonderful breeze whipping through it.The service is second to none, and the food is always very good and not expensive. Margaritas are always cheap at 150 pesos and very... More

Wonderful people, food and drinks at a great price. Beware of the strolling guitar players tho. Thought it was 100pesos but turned out to be per song. Don't eat in the Mexican restaurant place across the street below the Cheeky Monkey. They were insulting to us as Americans.

We went for supper one evening to this restaurant and the food was absolutely fantastic. The restaurant is on the upper floor, so not recommended for anyone with a walking disability,however if you can walk the stairs, the food is more than worth it. The service was somewhat lacking on the evening we were there but the food and the... More

The last 4 or 5 years the food quality has really went up. Fantastic Mussels, Calamarie, and fantastic Mama Cheuy Shrimp. Shrimp stuff with Cheese and wrapped in Bacon served with a spicy blackberry sauce. Forget ordering lobster out, order this instead. Great meal at about 13 bucks. Ate here 5 or 6 times in my 4 week stay. 15... More

If you can get to this restaurant for an afternoon drink to watch the sunset you must! it is great. The staff are friendly, the margaritas are really good and cheap, and the calamari starter is a must try. We go back every-time we are in PVR. A must visit!

Years ago, this was a great place to eat and drink. For proof, look around at the packed places surrounding it while this one sits relatively empty. Don't be deceived by the cheap margaritas. I had trouble imagining mine had any tequila in it. The new menu features higher prices on everything - unfortunately the service or fare simply isn't... More

I always enjoyed this restaurant but after my most recent experience it goes to the top of my list. Even though I reserved a front row table for Mardi Gras well in advance other people were sitting there and refused to move (I even tried being nasty to them but it didn't help). The owner, Loretta, felt terrible and ended... More

This was our first visit to the Malecon and we stopped at Oceano located on the second floor to enjoy the view and eat some comfort food. We were rewarded in both regards: the view is amazingt and the sizzling plate of mixed fajitas and homemade tortillas were outstanding - tender, tasty and a generous portion. Service is attentive and... More

After a very disappointing visit for a sunset drink at Burros Bar (no service) we went to Oceano, very nice. They were attentive for the moment we stepped in, seated us immediately, our drinks & appetizers came quickly. Our group of four ordered pasta or fajitas - very tasty and plentiful! Tip for visitors - if you want a sunset... More
