You can’t beat the view from Casa Isabel.  Because of its perch high on the hillside of Puerto Vallarta, you have great views of the city and the Banderas Bay day or night.  You have a great view of the nightly fireworks from here.  Otherwise, the atmosphere is very tropical tiki bar.  The bar portion of the restaurant has a bank of big screen tv’s so it’s very crowded during popular sporting events.

View of PVR at night from Casa IsabelService
Service was very friendly and our food came out fast.  Servers had great recommendations for items on the menu.  Many of the servers appeared to have worked here for awhile, so service was very consistent.

Food & Drink
If you can’t find something to like here, then you probably are never satisfied.  Just about anything you could want from a mexican food point of view is here.  The fajitas were excellent, as were the chicken and fish dishes.  Everything was very reasonably priced, including the drinks. 

Making Spanish Coffee at Casa Isabel

They have a full bar, so you can have just about any drink you want.  Plenty of beers on tap as well.  You can get bananas flambe or spanish coffee made table side.  While it’s entertaining to watch, both were good, but not outstanding.  Let another table order them and then just enjoy the show.

While it does attract a bit of an older crowd, from the comments we overheard, this is a popular spot for both visitors and locals.  The foods great, drinks plentiful and the views amazing.  You need to put this on your list if your visiting PVR.  Just remember if you’re planning on walking, it’s a steep climb up.  If you drink or eat too much, don’t worry, you can just roll yourself down the hill when you leave.

 [box type=”info” ]Casa Isabel is located on one of the steep hillsides of Puerto Vallarta. If you’re walking, be prepared for a steep climb the last 200 yards. If you’re taking your own car, there is minimal parking available and area to turn around near the top is extremely limited. Also be aware that since Casa Isabel is “open air”, smoking is allowed in the restaurant.[/box]
