Looking for quality & price info for this restraunt. Also, saw a post that the ride down the hill will scare the tan right off of your face! Any truth to this as she said that it is a spectacular view and atmosphere. Is it far from the Vela Vallarta?
thanks

Ride down the hill? The only thing to be scared of in PV is timeshare sharks and bus drivers!!!!!!!!!!! BEWARE!

We went to LeCliff this year in P.V. The setting is really something. Worth seeing. The food, on the other hand, was not great and way over priced. Nearly double what we paid for similar food in town. Also, its a ways out there. We also ate at the 'Set of the Night of the Iguana'. A beautiful place, at Mismaloya. Food was very good and reasonable.

Thanks for the responses. Is the place at Mismaloya called John Houston's?

Not to be confused with El Set.

First time I went to PV, the Night of the Iguana set was ruins that one could walk through. And Oddly enough, there were a lot of iguanas.

We've eaten there 2 different years and thought it was outstanding. Had the seafood dinner for 2 and had a habbaci(spelling) set right on our table with hot coals to keep the food steaming hot throughout the meal. Was a great meal both times.
ALSO, experienced the ride down the hill. My brother compared it to a carnival ride at the State Fair. Guess it depends on your bus driver, ours was having fun scaring the tan off everyone as the previous post said. Part of the experience, hold on and PRAY.

If you don't mind me asking, how much ($) for the Seafood for 2 and was it a combo plate of seafood (shrimp, fish, etc.)? Arriving 3/25 from rainy Washington State!
thanks

Seafood for 2 platter was lobster, shrimp, mahi mahi and some other stuff. Just great.We also had a lobster bisque soup that was really good. It cost about $50 for the 2 of us.
That doesn't include the soup or any drinks. But the view was wonderful, the atmosphere was worth paying for, the 2 times we were there, they had a Bolivian trio playing beautiful music. These guys were really talented, played on homemade flutes and etc. They added to the atmosphere. Co-worker just returned from PV and they went to LeCliff for their anniversary dinner, she said it was outstanding. Great service there, I'd say it was one of the better places we have visited in PV for a special night out. Gets you away from the crowds and all the noise of the bar type restaurants for something different and quiet.
Enjoy.

I'm pretty sure the name is spelled with a 'K'? Just in case you have to look it up in the phone book or something. I couldn't find a website. Anyone else?

I have been there 5 times and have never seen any time share sharks there.
But there are plenty in town.

I've been to LeCliff once...it is gorgeous at sunset...the food is ok, I wouldn't say it was outstanding, and prices are not cheap, more moderately high...but, I am glad I went for the view, the atmosphere, and it was a romantic spot...if you do go...have the "Sexy Coffee". It is a show in itself...flaming liquers flying everywhere! It is up a "long and winding road" right next to the cliff edge...what makes it scary depends on how the cab driver drives...when we went, we were staying at Paradise Village, which is on the other side of the world from Le Cliff...we asked the manager to tell the cab driver to take it slower, and he really did a relatively good job at it, at least until he got into town...
