Good rustic food

We ate here as part of a lagoon tour and really enjoyed it. We had pretty basic food - guacamole, sopes, rice, beans, and sea bass caught in the lagoon with a red sauce. All of it was really great, though, better than the restaurants in town, especially the fish. We ate until we were stuffed and... read more

We read about Bou Bou and went for a visit with high expectations. It's hard to find but when you walk in it's beautifull and very relaxing on the water, under a shade tree with a nice breeze. The guacamole was good and the beer was cold. We should have stopped there. We ordered garlic shrimp, fish (supposedly mahi mahi)... More

We read about Bou Bou on here and decided to go check it out. An interesting drive to find it but we were warmly welcomed. Very laid back and friendly people. Excellent guacamole. Ordered a variety of plates...mahi mahi, garlic shrimp, and chicken. The chicken was excellent, the fish average, and the shrimp were honestly the worst I've ever eaten... More

Baldo took us the visit Los Bou Bous and Felix took us out on a lagoon tour with his son Victor. Victor jumped off the boat and picked lillies for my wife, daughters and grand-daughter which Felix made into lily necklaces for them. When we got back to their home, La Senora had made us a meal of red snapper... More

After a tour of the lagoon with Felix, we enjoyed a delicious fish meal prepared by his wife. The fish is fresh from the lagoon and was one of the highlights of our trip.

We have been to BouBou's every year for the past five or six years, and always have a fantastic meal and tour of the lagoon. Felix, the proprietor, takes good care of you in terms of a boat tour and his wife is an excellent cook. We always arrive in early afternoon and make a plan with Felix for the... More

The boat tour takes you to... More
