Mine is Cafe de Artistes. Make sure when you reserve for dinner, ask for the outdoor patio.

I also love Cafe de Artistes. Memos is great for breakfast. I would eliminate Pipis -- ate there last Christmas and thought it was marginal; also very touristy and crowded. The restaurant at Hotel Linda Mar has a fabulous spot right on the water-it really is picture perfect-ate Sunday brunch there-not a big brunch person, but it was good & they'll make to order omelettes. Enjoy.

Thanks for all your suggestions!

I heard that Cafe de Artistes is a little on the pricey side. What is the average cost of a dinner?

I just returned from PV this week but I only ate at one of the restaurants on your list - La Dolce Vita. It was a casual night of pizza (started with fried calamari). I thought the pizza was excellent.

Although not on your list, I had other very good meals at Barcelona Tapas, Trio and Vitea.

Not meaning to hijack this thread but - thanks Suze for your input. My first trip to PV was excellent. It is a very cool place.

There's a wonderful Spanish restaurant called Barcelona (I think) on top of a hill in downtown PV. Amazing veiws, great tapas & strong sangria!

sidenote- That list is old in the original post. Papaya 3 isn't around anymore. Chili's is under new ownership. There are two more new breakfast places on B. Badillo.
