YUM!

The view was by far my favourite. But as far as the food goes, I was thoroughly impressed. I had some of the best fish tacos I've ever had as well as a banana marguerita (which are a must have).

Ah, but you can't eat the view or the breeze. We have been coming here for years and don't know what has happened. The meals used to be off the charts great. Now they are ok and that is being kind. I had ok fish tacos. My husband had an ok fish filet. The restaurant is called El Dorado. Twice... More

We went to El Dorado on the recommendation of Trip Advisor and have to say... So disappointing! Good guacamole, subpar ceviche. Nice view. The main plates Shrimp sautéed with garlic and butter wasn't devained and was not the yummy blue shrimp that other restaurants offer. Fish tacos were just ok. On the bright side... The waiter was super nice and... More

The ceviche and guacamole was amazing. The view was breathtaking. The mojita was tasty and the service was on point.

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
