This place is very tasty. Portions are generous. I had the coconut shrimp and it was so fresh and the shrimp were huge! The drinks are strong and also very large. One is more than enough. My husband had the Seafood platter with a little bit of everything and he said "it was ahhhh-mazing". Again plenty of food. It's about... More

Went here on recommendation from golf course. Setting is nice, on the beach, and the service was great. The guacamole, salsa and chips were very good. We had a "special for two" of three types of jumbo prawns. The sample prawn they brought to the table was huge, but he must have escaped in the kitchen, because the ones on... More

The service was great very attentive. The shrimp was a bit on the oily side. The view is incredible, unassuming resturant with a lot going on My one thing I didn't like is they let street vendors into the resturant to sell things like flowers and small toys sold by a small boy. They do have have musicians playing at... More

A lovely cultural atmosphere that blends nicely with the open ocean views and breezes. The entire staff was wonderful, friendly and accommodating. Our table of 4 enjoyed a special evening of fun, conversation and laughter while devouring a magnificent presentation of various shrimp creations and drinks. They provided us a marvelous meal and a truly fun time that we will... More

Food was decent at best, then check arrives & is $380 pesos (about $35USD) too much- Ruben #2 the waiter told me this was for the chips & salsa they brought with our drinks before the meal was ordered!! These are the same as every other place either gives you for free or might be $5. I couldnt believe it-... More

We have been coming to Dugarels for eight years. It has been on my don't miss list for seven years until the last visit. This is my third visit this year and my third disappointment in a row. Their policies have changed and their food suffers. Three visits ago, I got sick on the Red Snapper but because of all... More

We had an amazing meal here and there was absolutely no problem paying with Visa. Staff were attentive,taking time to explain the different meals, turning on a fan because we were hot, calling us a taxi, etc. View was spectacular.

It was a little early in the season, so it wasn't crowded. We got excellent service and delicious shrimp dinners. Also, we had a very romantic table, overlooking the beach.
