“For this VIEW, a camera is a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

Take an interesting drive up the mountain for an incredible BEST BIG view of a Pacific Ocean Bay of Banderas surrounded by all the natural beauty of the Sierra Mountains and enjoy a huge
total view of the city, airport, marina,the whole glistening bay from Punta de Mita to Los Arcos and beyond. The view goes on and on only surpassed by a delicious margarita, fine service,
your choice of great fresh seafood, steak,chicken,ribs prepared on a bar-b-Que grill. We have enjoyed Las Carmelitas over the years from the lower locale all the way further up to the fine space higher up the mt.with things still be finished. Hope you get the chance to enjoy.

“Don't pass this one by”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

Well worth the cab ride up the top of the mountain where the panoramic view of old town, new town, the beaches especially with the magic of the sunset and the town's lights coming on.
The food was excellent, the service fantastic, an open air feel under a permanent roof.
You won't be sorry you took the time to get to this mountain retreat for a sunset dinner.

“Great view, not worth the climb”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

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.

“Spectacular View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

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.

“A Sunset Must”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

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.
