We have been clients of Dugarels for nearly 24 years. Always great service: especially from Ruben and Antonio. Fish is always fresh and delicious.

We had a group of 5 people. My husband and I had the best food of the 5 restaurants we attended. The servings were large, staff, & music were very enjoyable. It's right on the water, so the view was outstanding.

Service was friendly and attentive. The setting is nice, though the same can be said for all of the restaurants along this stretch of the beach. I wasn’t very hungry so just had the chicken quesadillas, which were cheap and good, but nothing special. Based on everybody else’s meals, I should have gone with the seafood instead, as it received... More

Outside dining on a deck above the beach. Excellent service, great drinks and the view was wonderful. Had a seafood platter: Spiny lobster, prawns, mahi-mahi, shrimp and scallops with fresh vegetables and rice. Cost was about $20, so considerably lower than the touristy spots in PV.

WE had supper at this restaurant twice while staying in Nuevo Vallarta. It was an easy 20 minute walk along the beach to Bucerias from our Nuevo Vallarta resort. We liked the cloth tableclothes and wooden chairs instead of the plastic tables and chairs other places offered. The service was fabulous,. They showed us a selection of large shrimp,fish ,steak...

The service, food, and view were all amazing! My niece even got a birthday song and dessert. We had an incredible meal. The margaritas were the best I had along the beach all week. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking outdoor/patio eating, friendly service, and delicious food- with a super view.

Dugarels is the place we always visit on our first night in Mexico. We always attempt to dine at sunset to take advantage of the wonderful view. Food and service is always exceptional.

After wandering around Bucerias and finding a couple of the restaurants that we had considered, closed for the day we decided on Dugarel Plays. This turned out to be an excellent choice. We were seated on the balcony with a great view of the beach. My wife and I each had the Mexican Platter which was a combination of several... More

I had the Mexican Plate (Chicken and Beef Enchiladas with a stuffed Poblano chile)and my wife had the filet of fresh caught Mahi - Mahi. What was the most tasty item? The shrimp stuffed avocado - it was the bomb. Service was great and you can sit on a covered balcony or right on the beach under a palapa. A... More

My friends & I went here on a holiday to Puerta Vallarta in March and had a wonderful fresh seafood meal. The waiters were very attentive, and the view from the balcony was exceptional & very relaxing. I ordered the seafood platter and enjoyed every bit except the Mahi Mahi was a little overcooked. But the octopus and shrimp were... More
