Slightly hungover over from the night before, I came to Estel's for a decent breakfast & I wasn't disappointed. With a little help from the American waiter, we chose the Mayan eggs (highly recommended!) as well as one of the best Bloody Mary's on the island. Great way to start the day, facing the ocean.

We visited Estel's twice on our three day trip and we loved it each time. The waiter remembered us the second day and asked if we wanted the same order. You feel like a local here, very comforting, easy going atmosphere. The breeze and the view are breathtaking yet it's a laid back feel. The breakfast was amazing, by far... More

We ate breakfast here every morning, except when it was closed. It was a short walk on the beach from our hotel (The Phoenix) and has such a nice view. Our kids are older and slept in each morning, so it was such a nice way for me and my husband to start each day. Food was good, normal good... More

We stopped in for lunch, although breakfast is their specialty. It is literally on the beach, just feet from the water. There aren't floors to speak of, just sand throughout. The gentleman that seated us and took our order was very polite and the food was good. There was plenty to watch, with lots of activity on the beach. Worth... More

I had breakfast- it was open a little earlier than some other places- you order off of a black board- I prefer a menu to study- I had eggs- they were a little greasy- the fry jacks were not great and the refried beans I did not care for- the floor outside is sand- it is on the water- the... More

Even though we heard from the locals that the food had gone downhill, we went anyway, b/c we were in search of breakfast food - and this is what we could find open. Food was ok. Not terrible. But not great. I did not finish my meal. It was cheap, and on the beach, but I would not recommend eating... More

Great atmosphere and a beautiful place to have breakfast and lunch. Interesting concept where the menu is inside on a large chalk board where you go read and determine what you want to eat. The food was good and the servers were nice. Great place to relax and have a mimosa or bloody marry in the morning!

During our stay in San Pedro, we had breakfast out everyday! This little jewel of a restaurant by the sea is hard to match. Everything we had, ranging from "watermelon juice" to the "fry jacks" were WONDERFUL! We had breakfast at Estel's several times; I just get hungry writing about this place. The service was great, and timely (even when... More

If you're looking for a good U.S. breakfast in the morning, stop by Estel's. They open at 5 or 6, so their patio makes an awesome spot for breakfast and a sunrise. You have to get fry jacks at least once. Essentially, it is fried dough that is served with jelly. But, you can also order them stuffed with eggs... More
