We are always looking for a new place up high for a final nights sunset and this one will not make the list. Service was spotty, wine list was the worst we saw all week. Bacon wrapped shrimp entree was outstanding while the fajitas were awful. Some salads were pretty good but the house special Caesar was lame. We did... More

The Caesar salad was just okay, though others enjoyed their salads. The fish (tilapia) with vegetables and shrimp tasted like chicken a-la-king. Better choices exist.

Nice view of the city. Our food was tasty, but not hot. Also, the flaming coffee was not hot. We were told by our resort we would receive a 10% discount, but our server said that was for cash payment only. Also, we couldn't put the tip on the bill it would have to be paid in cash.

Been coming to El Palomar for the past 12 years - you just can't beat the food and the view of the city is breathtaking at night! A go to spot for anyone visiting PV. Especially beautiful if you can make arrangements to be there during sunset.

Rooftop dining at El Palomar with Victor and his staff is more than a delicious evening meal. The service is excellent and the food a culinary delight. All this accompanied by a beautiful view of Puerto Vallarta and excellent atmosphere. The background music is relaxing and in no way interferes with dinner conversation. We have walked past this restaurant for... More

We visited El Palomar for a ladies' 50th birthday celebration and were treated like princesses. The restaurant wasn't busy so they had 2 waiters for our 8 person party and they were on the spot with everything and anything we wanted. The food was delicious, the view was amazing and the entire restaurant was beautiful, romantic and inviting. 100% perfection.

We visit El Palomar every time we travel to PV and this evening was another GREAT experience! We know many of the servers and it is great to see them when visit. This trip we brought someone with us who hadn't been there before and he was floored by the view, service and food. It is such a great place... More

One of the best meals we had in a week of special meals in PV. Not quite as good as Cafe Des Artistes, but really special. The service was fantastic - we had 6 or 8 people waiting on us at any given time. Food was good, and the view was amazing. The ride up the hill to get here... More

While the food is really, really good, you come here for the amazing view of Puerto Vallarta. The service is also fantastic. We come every year and our kids have a blast with the taxis driving up the hill to get here....plus the tortilla soup is outstanding! Dinner portions are a little bit on the smaller side but there are... More

It was only a 50 peso taxi ride from Olas Altas to the Restaurant. We dined on the upper terrace and had a wonderful view overlooking the town. and bay. I enjoyed the shrimp soup followed by the rib eye, very tasty and cooked to perfection. Finished with a entertaining display of the house special coffee.
