Perfect beachfront for a Sunday afternoon

We stopped here to rest and an ice cold margarita after walking through town. Probably the best location and comfortable beach chairs in Punta de Mita. The menu also looked great so we'll have to come back for a meal!!!

A charming place to hang out for the day! The beach is amazing. The waiter was so kind! Helped us rent paddle boards and surf boards. Service was excellent! Margaritas were awesome! For sure going back.

El Dorado's setting is magnificent - it is right on the water and provides outstanding views. The staff was also friendly and made the experience enjoyable. We found the food rather underwhelming, however, and the mixed drinks we ordered were straight up bad. The final price for the meal, while affordable by U.S. standards, was also rather expensive for the... More

This is a fun casual spot in the middle if Punta Mita's restaurant row! We went most mornings for breakfast and were greeted by our names, with warmth and great service! They are open all day. Prices are reasonable and you can enjoy the great ocean view on the large deck, or sit below with feet in the sand. Lots... More

We have been coming here for years and it never disappoints. Food and drinks are good and reasonably priced. Great staff too. Perfect beach for little kids as the waves break further out and roll in like lake waves. Very fine sand too. My favorite are their nachos!

Our whole family (three generations of us, twenty-two in all) go here every time we travel to Punta Mita. It's known for great seafood and regional food at reasonable prices. Everything is fresh and the drinks are plentiful. It is not overpriced, but the quality is very good. It's nice and casual (right on the water so there's sand on... More

Loved the casual atmosphere and delicious food at El Dorado. After being scared away from other pricey options in the village this spot was perfect. We loved the friendly service and delicious guacamole with cheese and salsa mexicana.

While on our stay in Punta, we had lunch twice at El Dorado. Both times we found it to be great. It may not be the most appealing looking place, but the food and service made up for it. If you enjoy chili rellenos, then this is the place to order them. Twice they came out perfect. Great flavour. The... More

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
