When we were in Puerto Vallarta, we would stop at this restaurant on our way to the boardwalk. The first day we ate here, it took quite a while to get our food. The restaurant seemed a little short staffed and many of the employees were literally running around to keep up with business. Despite the long wait, I admired... More

We were a group of 8 people and were in town for 11 days. We dined there 3 times and breakfast once. Alvaro our waiter was charming and would change up the menu to please us (grilled rather then fried). We ate many meals in the Malecon and still went back to Cesare's because of the service and the food.... More

My wife and I went out for a breakfast one of our first mornings in PVR and found Cesare's, right on Mexico Ave. They have a very nice covered outside patio where you can watch everyone go by. We didn't go with the advertised specials, which are very inexpensive. My wife just went with pancakes, which were very light and... More

We stayed in a condo, so we made our own breakfast most days, then took a long walk on the Malecon. We noticed many places open for breakfast, with hawkers outside touting their offerings. The one place without hawkers, which was always filled, with locals and tourists, was Cesare. So one morning we decided to try it. The prices are... More

We happened upon this nice little restaurant quite by accident. After looking at the menu on the street, we decided to try it. We actually decided upon the specials of the day and were we glad we did. We ate on the covered patio next to the waterfall. I elected to start with the tortilla soup. The soup itself was... More

Had breakfast, off the menu not the special. Very reasonably priced and tasty. Service was just OK and they weren't crowded. I'm beginning to think keeping the coffee and water filled is an American thing so it's really not a complaint. We sat up front so could enjoy the goings on of the street. Very pleasant way to get the... More

Walking along and saw their sign 'Breakfast 49 pesos' so thought we'd give it a try. We didn't go with the brekkie special we ordered off the menu and the food was excellent and the breakfast beer went down a treat too! Excellent service also.

I am always fascinated when I find a fantastic restaurant but even more so when I find it on my own just walking down the street and finding something that happens to be a treasure to come back over and over again as often as we visit the city. This is just that extraordinary find that we came upon today... More
