Just Okay this year

We visited Dugarel last year and found it wonderful. This year I would have to take it down a notch. The atmosphere hasn't changed but the waiter we had seemed forgetful or just overworked. When the food arrived I found my meal to be less than great. The fish was overcooked and rubbery. We... read more

Love this restaurant. Right on the Beach with beautiful sunset views. Service is great and food is to die for! The flaming coffee makes a special end to the dinner. The presentation of the coffee being made is as good as the coffee!!

Dugarel Plays is one of our "go to" restaurants in Bucerias. You are literally eating on the beach with the waves crashing nearby. Often you don't get both a beach setting AND good food, but that is definitely not the case here. The staff is always attentive, and the food and drinks are wonderful.

We were here 23 years ago when the hurricane dunk the deck. We returned to pleasantly see it rebuilt, and as normal the food was fantastic. A great spot a bit farther down the beach from the busy core of Bucerias. Highly recommended from a frequent traveler.
