    Hi girls, my biggest issue right now is finding the "perfect" rehearsal dinner spot. I have read hundreds of reviews and looked up every restaurant you could imagine. I am stuck!!! Since I have not been to PV in 10 years, it is extremely hard to choose. I really want a breath taking view and of course great food. Has anyone heard or been to Vista Grill? I was considering Barcelona Tapas too. Any advice on this subject would be so much appreciated.
    I just want to make it super special.

    Thanks
    Christin

      Restaurants with good views - BT, El Panorama, El Palomar de Gonzales, Vista - all are good choices...although lately i have heard mixed review of BT.

      I'm having mine in about 1.5 weeks at El Palomar - we reserved a terrace and the view is amazing. It is also very "true mexico" - lots of bougainvillas etc. very quaint. I will let you know how it goes!!

          Sandy, do you have the contact info for El Palomar. I checked it out and it seems to be what I am looking for.

            We were in PV last week looking for welcome dinner places. Vista Grill s nice and they have a terrace up top that they use for welcome dinner/reception. They are very, very pricey.

            Beign from New York...I am very picky about city views/food and I did not think that Vista Grill was worth the price...

              Barcelo tapas has great food and a great view overlooking downtown. However you have to climb 4 flights of stairs to get to the dining area and that view. We have older guests that won't be able to handle that climb.

              We stayed a villa that was very near Vista Grill but it was closed when we were there due to the swine flu scare. This resturant is up in a rural area but does have a good view of all of PV. I am pretty sure they are owned by La Palapa. We ate at La Palapa and the food there was excellent.

              Has anyone been to Epoca? We are thinking of doing a sunset cocktail/appetizer reception there.

                That's great information to know...we are looking for rehearsal dinner places in May as well.

                  We had ours at Si Senor= AWESOME! Food/service/ambiance was amazing. They brought in entertainers that just worked for tips: mariachi and tribal dancers. They also made guac at table, served these platters of food on metal ships that had flames coming out... very cool. It was family style so everyone got what they wanted. They brought out more at no cost as needed. VERY COOL!
