Beautiful view with excellent service and food.
They do try to up charge you but we just said no thank you.
The classic margs were delicious and we did not need the special menu.
So just know going in that they offer this and you will be fine.
Wood grilled shrimp was yummy and perfectly cooked.
Catch of the day was a generous portion of perfectly prepared fish.
The views can’t be described.
I think Google maps is saying the road is closed but it is not.
15-25 minutes from Hilton South shore.
I am sure it cost a small fortune to operate this business.

I got married at le kliff February 15 2024! The staff, venue, ambience, food and drinks blew us and our guests away. So many people told me it was the most unique and beautiful wedding venue they have ever been. I would have my wedding here over and over and over, le kliff really made it such a special day. I feel shocked at some of the not so great reviews, this place is so stunning and the staff are amazing!

So, let’s start with the good: we went on Valentine’s Day, and it was off weather… a bit rainy. The crew handled it with class. They handed out umbrellas and had a rain shelter set up. Appreciated.

My wife looked AWESOME, floor length red dress. Yeah, still marry her again.

Food was really good. Not “wow”, as my steak was heavily over salted… I had to scrape the salt off and eat each bit with mashed potatoes to control it… but still tasty.

THE BAD …

**THE SHELL GAME** As usual, we’d looked up the menu, prior to arrival. When we sat, the “head waiter” brought out a food menu and a drink menu.

STICKER SHOCK.

Minimum on the Special Menu was $2500 pesos, and top was $5500 pesos. He said this is a “SPECIAL MENU”. I could see other tables of guests looking around too. I had brought a good amount of pesos, for our planned meal, but this Special Menu would mean only one of us could order.

I asked if there was a regular menu, and he pushed us to order from the SPECIAL MENU. Finally, after asking a THIRD TIME, surprise, there was a Regular menu. He still pushed for the Special Menu… alas, I didn’t want to do dishes to pay for payment. Order (from the regular menu) placed.

SHELL GAME CONTINUES, next table. EVEN WORSE.

The table beside us was a lovely sweet senior couple, late 70s or 80’s. The lady said her husband only wanted a steak, as he had a very small food capacity. Of course the Head Waiter again delivered the SPECIAL MENU. When she asked for something that was only a steak, he ignored her request, and told her how wonderful the SPECIAL MENU was. Twice the price, minimum…

After he left, we told her to ask for the regular menu. He came back, she asked for the regular menu, steak only, and AGAIN he pushed the Special Menu. In the end, they ordered the lobster/shrimp/steak. The old fellow of course only nibbled, and had to take lobster, shrimp and steak leftovers… ever had leftover lobster?

SHELL GAME and coercion to trick customers …
We will never be back. Honestly, EVERY nice restaurant in the Bay has the same view of the same bay and sunset. Lots of restaurants, save your hard earned for places that respect their customers. If they need coercion and trickery, it is not our kind of place.

My partner and I made a reservation based on some research we had done about PV and area. Le Kliff - an absolute gem of a property for a romantic dinner, while watching a beautiful sunset. The property has a stunning view of the ocean; with multiple tiers of seating, giving everyone an opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking views. The property continues to recover from the hurricane from this last autumn but don't let that cause you pause, the property has done an outstanding job in bettering the guest's dining areas. Only phase remaining is to re-construct the palapas. From receiving us at the host station, to escorting us to our table and dinner service...all were provided with our dining needs in mind. Dinner was fabulous - tasty and excellently prepared. Note: they do try to upsell you on an 'all included' tasting menu and preferred seating (we had read about this in advance). We politely declined and were seated at our table, with a view. No issues. Our server Alex y Jimi was excellent. Very attentive - checking in on several occasions for water top ups, wine service, to answer questions we had, etc. Excellent customer experience provided by Alex. We would definitely return to Le Kliff and highly recommend for a more elevated dining experience.
