We reserved a table for a sunset view and were not disappointed. We went upstairs to the top deck with a cocktail and took beautiful photos of the sunset and the city. The staff were delightful! Food was good and the desserts...yum!

The view from this restaurant just enhances the dining experience. The owner greeted us with warmth and seated us immediately. The staff was very attentive and gracious. I had the steak prepared tableside and I ate all of it even though I didn't thing I could finish it. Very well prepared. The sexy coffee is an experience in itself. A... More

My wife and I make a point of going to El Panorama when we vacation in PV. This was our 5th visit and we were looking forward to a nice New Years Eve meal with some friends we brought along. We arrived and were seated pretty quickly for our 8 PM reservation. Being New Years, they had different scheduled seatings... More

Our group had dinner here one night. Very few other people. Super view of city and bay. Seafood was outstanding as were the margaritas and wine.

We were recommended to go to Panorama and it didn't disappoint, go before sunset and watch it drop into the ocean, fabulous views down the coastline and then see Puerto Vallarta come to life and light up. Food was good and service great.... Get a taxi as the climb is "steep" but we walked back down to the Malecon which... More

We went there for the first time and we're not disappointed. The view at sunset was incredible. I ordered the shrimp Panama and it was made table side which was fun to watch and tasted amazing. The shrimp were as big as my hand and were so fresh and full of flavor I wish I had more on my plate.... More

The view is spectacular & the service is great. The food was OK but the drinks were really good. Next time I'd go back for drinks at sunset.

We stopped here for drinks & sunset at recommendation of other travelers! Loved it, next time we will go for dinner as it's the old supper club feel there with tableside Caesar salad, etc, that we saw while enjoying our wine and sunset. Beautiful place off the beaten path, cheap taxi ride though from Zona Romantica where we were staying.

I recently put in a review or El Panorama by mistake. The review should have been for El Palomar instead. I would like to apologize to El Panorama and to the readers of the review.

Our establishment opened its doors in 1973 and has maintained its reputation as one of the premier restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. Our view is unrivaled in Vallarta as we are located on top of Hotel Suites La Siesta on a hillside 4 blocks from the beach and boardwalk (malecon) in the very heart of El Centro. We have two rooftop terraces and two indoor salons that have commanding views of the entire Bay of Banderas and city with its array of red tiled rooftop. Our menu is international and features flambe cooking right at your table as well as our unique caesar salad, desserts and flamming coffees. Our restaurant is rich in history and tradition and should be part of what all tourists are looking for: good food, service and that special ambiance.
