very good for breakfast

went there 2 years apart- still very good for breakfast. Cheap too. And nothing can beat the view by the open ocean.

The oceanfront view was stunning, but the food was a disappointment. My carnitas tacos had absolutely no flavor and the drinks were so watered down. It's also cash only and not super convenient to park near. It wasn't horrible, but I definitely wouldn't go again.

We originally stopped in just for the view. Large windows open right on to the ocean, with crashing waves over the rocks. Lovely! Their food was very good and very reasonably priced! We weren't very hungry so we just had their tacos, which were very good, and oversized...2 for $6.50. Glass of wine, $6.50. Great dinner for under $30 with... More

The first thing that caught my attention from Hacienda Don Jose was the stunning ocean view of the clear waters. The tostadas and salsa were great, along with the smoothies. The actual food, not so great, or at least I would not recommend the Monfongo from there.

I love this place. I was here 10 years ago and remembered the food and view. I came back this month for dinner. I had the grilled octopus salad. Very good. I came back for breakfast and ordered an omelette which included coffee and OJ for under $10. Staff was nice and spoke English. Def have to stop by.

The food reminded me of some local Mexican food here in Texas but that's probably because we ordered shrimp and steak fajitas. I'd give the food 3 out of 5 stars. It wasn't super fantastic but it wasn't bad either. You have to sit in the back by the ocean. If you don't, you'll just experience mediocre food in my... More

I honestly don't know how things went down the tubes here. Used to love love love the tacos. Last night we went it was so dead I thought it was closed. I couldn't wait to order the tacos which used to be my favorite from here. I ordered chicken tacos waiting to bite into heaven I actually bite into boiled... More

The view from the window tables is great. What a way to start your vacation looking at the sea and waves. If you don't get the window then it's not so cool. Mains were really big. I rarely can't finish my meal because of the size of it and it happened here. Prices felt bit high but after looking at... More
