Le Kliff Restaurant and Bar in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

 

Perched on the edge of a cliff a short drive south of downtown Puerto Vallarta, lies one of the best kept gastronomical secrets of the Bahia de Banderas, Le Kliff Restaurant and Bar.

This perfectly poised giant palapa plays host daily to the bay's most spectacular sunsets and some of the best seafood in town. It also provides ringside seats for watching gray whales and giant manta rays during the months of December through April.

Founded in 1983 by the Guzman Gutierrez Family, Le Kliff has reached international fame not only for its cuisine, but for its beauty and architecture as well.

In 1984 and 1985, it appeared in The Guinness Book of World Records as the World’s Largest Palapa, or thatched roof canopy, and was later featured as “One of the most beautiful spots in Latin America" by the Sony Channel.
