Nice location on the beach. Ate breakfast there many times. Dinner twice--the pasta offerings (especially eggplant ravioli and penne carbonara) were incredible! Salads are nice too. Service is very good--nice to have an attentive waiter filling my coffee for breakfast. I've had to wait a lot at other restaurants.

I was not planning on stopping by myself to eat at Vitea as it seemed like a place where only groups were gathered...however, as I saw the sun setting and the awe-inducing view from this seaside restaurant (and music playing!) I couldn't resist. I am so glad I did. This restaurant was always bustling when I walked past each evening... More

We've been coming to PV for 25 years. We know many who like Vitea. Given it was a rainy day, we decided to give it another try. Not good. The service is slow and not very friendly (which is odd in PV). Food was terrible. We ordered a cheese tray that was terrible, and we love cheese. It came with... More

You can't beat the atmosphere and the quality of the food at Vitea. I eat there every trip to PV and have always had a great meal and the view is great.

Were seated right away even though we were early. Lots of unique choices. Everyone loved their food. Servers could have been more attentive and friendly.

The food here is excellent. Four of us ate here & everyone raved about their meals. Location on Malecon is gorgeous, watched the sun set, then enjoyed the fire works. Not real cheap, but not that high either & definitely worth it!

We enjoyed two dinners here and one breakfast. Both dinners were wonderful. We and our friends who had never been really enjoyed everything. We love the half sizes on some items and the wide selection of wines by the glass. Our breakfast experience was pleasant but not the beast. We both had eggs benedict with the smoked salmon and we...

Located at the south end of the Malecon this is a busy restaurant. The food is good, particularly the quiche. However the steak was very disappointing and had to be replaced. Service was good. Beware if you sit close to the outside you will be bothered by lots of vendors.
