El Campanario Review

Fans swirl the air, doors are open to the street, and cheerful oilcloths cover wooden tables at this no-frills spot across from the cathedral. Egg dishes and chilaquiles are served 9 am to 11 am, and an inexpensive daily lunch menu is served 2 pm to 5 pm. For around $5, you get soup, a main dish, a drink, homemade tortillas, and dessert. Office workers come in for takeout or drift in between 6 pm and 10 pm for tacos, tortas (Mexican-style sandwiches on crispy white rolls), or pozole. A recipe for the last is given—along with a positive dining review—in a framed Los Angeles Times article from the 1980s.

    El Campanario Review

    This is one of my favorite P.V. restaurants. We have been going to P.V. for over 17 years and only discovered this 2 years ago. I love everything on their afternoon menu......from steak,to chicken to seafood, From 2p-5P you get a complete meal: soup, entree, drink and dessert for 50 pesos (about $4.50 USD). Love it, love it,love it!
