Upstairs with a view

Upstairs on the beach. Wonderful view and great service. No vendors come upstairs which is a plus when wanting to really enjoy the atmosphere. Fish tacos, shrimp tacos, quesidillas, guacamole, chips and salsa, cold beer.

This was definitely our favourite in Punta MIta. The views of sunset from upstairs were great, the food was fresh and the staff were so gracious. Chose this as our restaurant for our last night in Punta Mita and weren't disappointed. We didn't want to leave and even though the staff were keen to close up, they let us stay... More

This place was recommended to us by our friends that have a condo near by. The food was good, but nothing special. The service was good and the prices about average. This is right on the beach, during the day you can hang out have lunch and take your surf board.

I was taken to El Dorado by a friend who lives in Nayarit. I can say the food was outstanding. He kept saying get the dorado. We just asked the server for it and it was delicious. The mid day margartitas were excellent. I would not have known about this with our local info. Any tourist to Punta de Mita... More

This is a place to come and stick your feet in the sand. Watch the pelican dive for food and the surfers and paddle boarders swing with the waves. Rocky beach. Food is very good but with a limited coastal menu. Don't expect a wine list. But if you love great red snapper with garlic and lime, this is the... More

We have eaten at all the Punta Mita restaurants over the years but somehow we overlooked El Dorado. Our recent dinner was superb. The guacamole was the best in town by far, garnished with chunks of watermelon. The mixed Mexican plate with carne asada was fabulous. Prices are extremely reasonable and the service was excellent. Highly recommended!

We stopped by for lunch and dinner and saw the Super Bowl here. It is in the usual beautiful beachfront setting in Punta de Mita and there is an upper area that was a bit quieter. The staff is friendly, especially The Rock, who moved over here from a neighbouring restaurant. He has a great demeanour and provides excellent service... More

Ate here twice for lunch…there and take-out. Guacamole and chips were great. The micheladas were so cold and refreshing. Good quesadillas and tasty tacos. If you eat there, dine on the upper level…feels like a treehouse and a nice escape from the sun.
