A real treat

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.
