Had heard about how wonderful this place was, breakfast was OK, nothing more, however there was this little annoying fellow that hangs around and goes by the name Gallettero, what a piece of work this little dweeb is. They should show him the door, perhaprs more customer would come in, but I heard he is Dan's inlaw, so probably wont.

Good food and juice. Good every time I went, a little walk but worth it. Good staff. I had traditional Mexican fare and green juice all of it was good.

Nice fish/shrimp tacos on weekends. Good breakfasts and ambience. Very pleasant servers. Cafe for the highly rated hotel high up the hill above Zicatella Beach.

We had no idea that Dan's would as good as it was. A large airy place off the strip. And Sunday morning live jazz to go along fantastic French toast and fresh fruit. And meeting Dan, a perfect host was a treat also. A perfect laid back Sunday in paradise.

after reading reviews decided to try this place for lunch. maybe that was my mistake. First, they only serve Corona and Victoria, 2 of the worst beers here. I ordered a chicken burger. It was like eating a piece of leather with a dry white hamburger bun and was 70 pesos! Skip lunch, maybe better for breakfast but I wont... More

If you are in the Zicatela area, you have to stop at Dan's! Fish Tacos are served Friday, Saturday & Sundays. Only because Dan's Casas are solidly booked through the high season, I try to stay closeby so I can go to Dan's every morning for breakfast. Fruit juices, smoothies, superb coffee... fantastic breakfast choices, all ingredients fresh and of... More

Dan's is a bit hard to find, but you will find great staff, good food at great prices. If you are a football or hockey fan you will often find the games on especially at playoff time. Above Zicatela on the hill. This is not fancy, just a family atmosphere for both Mexicans and Canadians.
