Amazing View of the beach and sunset

This place is overlooking the beach and at sunset, it is spectacular, to sit and watch. Food is good and plentiful. Good shrimp cocktail and wonderful seafood salad. They also have all the basic Mexican/American stuff. You will not be disappointed.

Dugarel's is right on the beach overlooking the bay, nice for a romantic evening. We arrived as they were closing so we said we would leave and they would not have it! We felt they truly wanted to have us as guests even though it was late which was truly appreciated. The food was delicious and enormous, each dish was... More

We have been to Dugarel's every year for the last 15 years. The food is always excellent and the service is unequaled. Unfortunately we have missed Reuben the last couple times but hopefully will see him when we get there in a couple weeks. Don't miss this one, it will be one of the best meals in Mexico.

I have reviewed this restaurant last year but my experience this year forced me to review it again. First the atmosphere is perfect, romantic and right on the beach. The food and drinks are fantastic and the service is second to none. Not the cheapest restaurant but you get what you pay fore and more. We will continue eating here... More

Wait Staff handled our group of 15 perfectly. The food was great! My wife and I had the Prawn. Soooo good. Kids had fajitas. Large pours of Tequilla did the trick after dinner!

Made a specific trip to the restaurant to make a reservation and to ensure that our party would have a specific table/location. Two days later we arrived and found that our reserved table was no longer available; a larger group was being accommodated at the expense of our reservation. Another table was made available. Not a good start to an... More

Wanted something special for our last night in town. Excellent mango margarita, spectacular sunset surrounding us, attentive service, and a delish whole red snapper to share. Really getting into eating whole fish this trip and this one just cooked on the grill was very good. Have them remove the head unless you are really into that "delicacy".

My family has been coming to this restaurant since the late 1990;s and we have never left less than stuffed with great seafood and enjoyment from the experienced staff. Our last visit in 2014 showed that there had been some renovations and new fixtures, but the food was still ample and marvelous. Their fresh shrimp and lobster will make you... More
