Hermosa Manhattan Beach dinner recs

Two quick nights and looking for good restaurants in the area. Any ideas?

Going to Barbados in March. What to eat?

I second Oisten's fish fry on Friday night, but would suggest you get on the longest line-whoever he is, he's the best.

wonderful-just read all the reviews and it looks splendid. I love trip advisor, but missed all the B&B reviews. Can't wait to show my husband. Thanks.

Puerto Vallarta at Christmas

With thanks to all of you, we had a spectacular visit to PV. Restaurants were not as busy as we feared. Tikul was wonderful, Portobello disappointing, Trio fantastic and our favorite. Tried 4 different Tamales at Maria C.'s-still thinking about them. Barcelona Tapas ok food, lovely view, pretentious service. El Arrayan also met our expectations. One place not mentioned on these boards is Terraza di Roma in the Marina for breakfast. After a terrrible experience of cold tasteless food at Mr Cream, we landed with great happiness there the next 5 mornings. We were so pleased we tried dinner one night, and it too was surprisingly fresh. Unfortunately, we didn't get to Marisma for the unbelievable Shrimp and Fish Tacos until the day before we left. That's one reason why we're heading back to PV as soon as possible. Now we need recommendations for a nice condo or boutique hotel on a great stretch of beach.

Gary-Can I buy your book once I get there?

Visted Tikul's website today, and it did look very inviting-as does River Cafe. Also discovered that "Gary Beck" has a book I'm wondering if we can buy when we get in-rather than ordering it from here-are you listening Gary? Reading reviews here, bit by bit, I've determined most people think Cafe des Artistes is inconsistent. The eraser is out on that one. Thanks for the advice.

ok-guess the car rental, other than for a day or two of touring, is out. Much easier with taxis.
I thought we'd do Tikul and Portobello when we wanted an easy night of just walking over-I'll add La Palapa. More restaurants than we have nights, but how good is that? Still, which of the ones mentioned, would you reserve for the first two holiday nights? Dying for input on this!

Hi Cristina-No, it's been light years since we've visited PV or Mexico-feel in love with a spot in the Grenedines that has been getting our attention. This was just a last minute idea, using lots of points. I guess we needn't worry about the restaurants being closed-more that they'll be busy and we'll need reservations. If we're in the marina area, should we rent a car for the week to go to downtown restaurants, or will the cab fare be reasonable? Those that have caught our eye are El Arrayan, Daiquiiri Dick's, Red Cabbage Cafe, Archie's Wok, the Tapas places (BArcelona and Esquinada Capriches), Trio, Cafe Des Artistes-Cuetos. We can use all the advice that is out there!! Thanks

Hi Garybeck-Thanks for your help. Something nice-I was concerned about what would be open and making sure we have reservations, as we arrive Christmas eve. Staying at the Westin on points. Absolutely not interested in eating there!

Any suggestions for Christmas Eve and Christmas dinners in PV?
