We had been here two years earlier and had a MUCH better meal then. This time we had some great, some average and some gross plates. Do NOT order the steak. We were the only diners at the restaurant and they presented a bill at the end of the night that was $100 too much! We quickly pointed out a... More

We were fortunate to have had a recommendation to try lunch at this hidden gem and we were not disappointed. The seafood and setting are top notch. We were the only patrons for lunch at this time but the kitchen came alive and the family delivered a lovely meal for the four of us. We will return!

The spot is gorgeous, right on the water. The food is fresh and delicious. Carlos waits tables, his mother cooks, his brother catches the fish. Meanwhile, my kids played with Carlos' 9 year old daughter. We have gone 3 years in a row now, and are surprised each time that it is even better than we remembered. The mixed seafood... More

I am so glad we went to Paraiso Escondido! After reading reviews on the Bucerias forum, we had to check this restaurant out. It is a true family business. Grandma cooks, the father serves and the son buses the tables. The father and son both speak perfect English which is a nice surprise. The Margaretta and Daiquiri's we had were... More

We have been going here for the last 5 years. Often we will hop in the rental car from the airport and head right to this location. Great family location with a limited menu that they deliver well every time. The Mango Margs are worth the trip alone but if you can manage the bacon wraped shrimp it will end... More

Ate here in November 2009. Lovely setting, a huge covered Palapa overlooking the sea. Try to go befored sunset. The menu is presented on a platter - catch of the day, huge shrimp, lobster, chicken fajitas for the kids. The food was very well prepared, hot and tasty, with attentive service. It was a very pleasant evening. If you have... More

Have been going to Hidden Paradise since about 2002 and it is always like returning "home" whenever I'm there. It's a little hard to find; when you are going north on Route 200 from Bucerias, turn off at the exit for La Cruz, towards Punta Mita. The restaurant is just before you get to the new La Joya Condos and... More
