    In the old town of PV there is a great seafood restaurant-I can't remember the name but if you ask a local they will know

      boca bento for asian fusion
      pacifica grill for all you can eat shrimp
      el brujo for inexpensive fish

      el dorado is good
      machis bbq
      banana cantina
      archies wok

      you really cant do too badly in pv the food is very good

      if you are on los muertos beach, get a dozen oysters from any of the guys selling them, very fresh
      el pirata for shrimp burritos and ceviche tostadas

      el arrayan is one of our faves for some eye opening mexican as well as los xitomates

            El Dorado Beach Club. (It's not a club, it's just a restaurant). I've been to P.V. twice. (last time was 3 years ago). Both times, we ate at the El Dorado Beach Club. It's in town, right on the beach. The food was very good (not gourmet or anything, but tasty). It was family friendly. It's on the beach with a killer sunset view. It's right in the middle of town, easy to walk anywhere.
