Specializing in fresh homemade, Mexican cuisine, Los Charros’ kitchen is overseen by Juanita Vazquez. Juanita grew up in Acapulco and lived in Mexico City and Cancun. A consummate student of the Mexican tradition, Juanita toured Mexico for 16 years and developed exceptional proficiency with the culture, folklore dances and cooking styles from the Aztec west coast to Mayan east coast of Mexico. She prides herself on the fresh preparation of pre-Columbian and classic Mexican dishes that native Mexicans enjoy; neither too heavy nor over-spiced. For “Americanized” fare, Juanita collaborates with her "Gringo", Timo, a restaurateur with experience at trendy restaurants in Florida, Tennessee and Texas. Together with our island cooks, the Los Charros team guarantees the finest in authentic Mexican cuisine, popular Tex-Mex specialties and local island fare.

Authentic, delicious Mexican food served in an open air atmosphere by friendly staff. You can see the Ocean from the outdoor patio seating. We had a pulled chicken and rice dish served with slaw salad. Perfect for lunch. Loved the passion fruit drinks.

We ate at this restaurant twice during our stay in Puerto Plata. It wasn't so much for the quality of the food, but for the lack of options that are open in this area late into the evening. The service is good at this restaurant and the food is presented well. There are not many full dinner options on the... More

Great music, great food. A little far out if you are not staying near Confresi. Worth trying though because the food is good.

We love Mexican and Tex Mex dishes. This is a nice setting and will have their normal view of the ocean when the recent demolition of a building is removed opposite of them. Unfortunately the owner of the demolished building put up large temporary screens that block the ocean view. We tried different items on the menu on different visits.... More

We went there by a Saturday afternoon! The owners are very friendly and took care of us. The food is amazing. We are 4 Canadian teachers and we teach in Santo Domingo!
