Three of us went for lunch, we were the only people there. Attentive service, reasonable food and mixed drinks, not cheap for what we had. Incredible view, but not worth the effort of getting there. So many better restaurants in PV.

This place is amazing if you know what to expect. The view is the best that you will see. It is perched WAAAY up above PV, and you need to arrange it with the taxi that dropped you off to come back and grab you. However, I wouldn't recommend eating there. We just had beers and some chips and salsa, and quesidillas. It is a little bit of a run down establishment, bathrooms are gross, there was chickens running around, but the view is SO worth it. So, go with this in mind, have a drink, enjoy the view, and head back to town for dinner.

Many, if not all, of the negative reviews here will pertain to the food. A simple fix is to not order any. I can tell you for certain that the beer is cold, the margarita's are good and the view is unbeatable. It's up so high, you get an amazing view of the city both old and new. You can see all the way to Bucerias and Nuevo Vallarta too. It's a really great place to have a few drinks and watch the sunset. Note that the place has been under construction for years, it may never get done but the bones of what is currently in place is more than enough. The construction supplies laying around are not onerous.

I can't recommend this place for the service, because it was awful. Nor can I recommend it for the food as it was okay, but the view is very impressive. The general vibe of the whole place is too weird for me to return and the margaritas are not that great if you just want to go for a sunset.

The view is great, but there are other restaurants with great views. The staff was rude from the start, and food was awful! Plus it took an hour and a half to get out food, and the place was empty.
