All breakfasts were amazing- especially loved the chilaquiles, pancakes & french toast. Shrimp tacos for lunch are the best I've ever had. Grouper for dinner was delicious. Great wine selection & cocktails, but the best part was the service. Absolutely outstanding. Mochas Gracias!More

Description
Pavo Real by the Sea is an intimate, magical restaurant at the edge of the best beach in the world. You will come for the gorgeous view, you will come back for the incredible food prepared by Chef Alfonso Gonzalez and the attentive service and excellent wine list. Enjoy cocktails in the open-air bar at the edge of the beach, then choose a table in the garden or in the cozy salon decorated with original art, sit back and let us serve you a meal you won't be able to forget. The menu includes fresh foie gras, local fish and seafood, rack of lamb, beef tenderloin, bouillabaisse...And more. For a really special occasion, reserve a private romantic dinner on the beach. We look forward to your visit.
