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.

Loved the guacamole here! Big margaritas too. Awesome lunch spot on the second floor. We also ordered takeout on another day and enjoyed a second lunch.

we went their our last day for lunch. We sat on the beach chairs and enjoyed drinks and food. Great view and very relaxing. Not sure about having dinner there but having a quick drink and small lunch was perfect.

Service was very quick and friendly. Drinks were large and cold and very good price. Food was nice, shrimp empanadas very good, ceviche could use some spice, but overall very good. Annoying part was the large amount of vendors coming by all day to sell all kinds of stuff and even waking you up from a quick nap to sell... More

Great venue for a nice Mexican breakfast on the beach. Attentive staff, very good breakfast fare, and reasonably priced. Stopped there on a whim and would definitely return for breakfast at least. Nice spot right on the Bay of Banderas.

I had a fish and shrimp dish, which was tasty, though sort of smothered in sauce and cheese. My husband had chili rellenos, which were good, though not anywhere near as good as at Cafe de Olla in downtown Puerto Vallarta. It was dark out when we ate so you couldn't see the beach. The decor is quite charming. A... More

Quite a way from Puerto Vallarta, but definitely worth the drive. Reasonable prices and good food. Will be back for another visit.

Nice to dine upstairs overlooking the ocean and early morning sunrise. Food is good with a variety of choices. Pet friendly which is really important!

I have been a few times to El Dorado and the food is always good. You can dine right on the beach, have some great drinks and listen to mariachi's. The service is friendly and we always talk to interesting people from all over the place. Try the whole red snapper, Really Good, my daughter really liked it too.
