I really didn't want to hijack the "lost dining " thread so figured I should start a new one.
Hubby and I are going to be staying in Bucerias and PV next month and I'm trying to figure out if a restaurant that we ate at in ( I believe) 1992 is still open for business. We had just got engaged at that time and we remember it as having a wonderful view, great food and romantic ambiance.
We took a taxi up into the hills and it seemed like we climbed forever. We saw hardly any other traffic, just kids playing on the streets in a residential area. Just when we were beginning to think that the driver had misunderstood where we wanted to go, we pulled up to a ? house with a flat spot almost like a helicopter landing area where he let us out.
One of the things that we both remember was the incredible view of the Bay and the flies that were buzzing around our drinks lol! Our waiter saw us covering our wine glasses with our hands and told us not to worry, fifteen minutes and they would all be gone. Sure enough, fifteen minuted later as it was turning to dusk, several geckos came out of the cracks in the restaurant walls and in no time at all, bingo the flies were gone!
I have looked and looked at reviews and the only place that seems to come close is El Palomar de Los Gonzales but my hubby is not convinced that was the same place . He figures that:
- The place we were in was higher above the old town than El Palomar appears to be from the pics..
- There was no pool there.
- The terrace was only on one level.
- The restaurant name was longer ( A co-worker recommended it and gave him a slip of paper with the name on, his recollection was that it read more like a sentence )
I pointed out that lots of changes to the structure could have been made in the last twenty years : ) : )
Anyone who lives in PV or has been going there for years have any thoughts on this?
Sorry for the long post, we would love to go back to that same restaurant this trip if the place is still aroound. Many thanks!Edited: 27 April 2013, 21:36
