It's been several years, so you may want to confirm my suggestions. However, kind of interesting mistake, first:

The view/location of Senor Frogs drew us in on our first trip (with kids). You probably wouldn't make that mistake, because there are so many better options but: We are having lunch there and a table or so over there is a group of young adults partying. Part of the process was that the young women would do a shot and the female waitress would grab (apparently with consent) the customer's breasts and shake her up. Never seen anything like or since. I of course put in my application immediately. (Kidding). The kids didn't really notice it but it wasn't really the right environment for them (IMHO).

It's been too long since we've been there, but we enjoy Manne's for German food (Kind of hidden on Calle 4th), Playa Maya (a hotel but it did have a restaurant right on the sand, but we only had lunch), and Karen's (right on 5th; sit outside for dinner and feel like you are in the middle of the action). We have also eaten at Rolandi's pizza.

Emd3- went to Cueva del Chango last night, very good. Took pics of your Terrazos condo building. Looks like the exterior structure is nearly done, but nothing on the interior yet. Still lots of work to be done there.

We, family of five (kids ages 14, 12 and 9), stayed on 38th and ate at Cuevo del Chango, Piola, and the Thai restaurant (can't remember its name -- Gua Talam?) All excellent and kid friendly. Cuevo can get crowded, we ate there twice and once had to wait for about 15 minutes. We also ate at AguaChiles which was excellent. Someone mentioned the fish tacos. They are delicious. My kids had both fish and meat tacos there. The calamari was really good as well. We ate at That's Amore on 5th one night. Good italian place, good pizza if you need to balance food options. My oldest will eat/try anything. The other two are a little pickier.
