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.

We sat on the edge of the deck enjoying the sea breeze and were treated to a fabulous whole red snapper meal. Guacamole appetizer is another must. Friendly and attentive service with reasonable prices. Have dined there twice and will be returning.

We went on a recommendation and based on trip advisor reviews and we were very disappointed. As a seasoned traveller, I've never experienced an evening like this. The view and sunset were the only spectacular things about this restaurant. The food was nothing exceptional by any means. There were 4 of us dining: 2 had the coconut shrimp and have... More

Nice balcony above the beach so that you are not hassled by vendors during lunch. Really fresh seafood prepared well. They are also very accommodating (my friend can't each chillies), and the service was just right.

Don't overlook this restaurant. The outside may not be inspiring but the food and service make it a winner. We had a fabulous dinner at a table looking over the beach and watching the sunset while we enjoyed a fresh seafood dinner. Consider having a fancy coffee for dessert. It is worth it just for the drama of presentation.

We really enjoyed our meal at Dugarel Plays! We had been shopping in the flea markets of Bucerias and were VERY hot and hungry. We asked our taxi driver to take us to the best restaurant around, and this is where he took us. The staff was extremely accommodating and eager to please. They turned on fans and brought us... More

We traveled from Nuevo Vallarta to see the quaint little town of Bucerias on our way to see Sayulita. On recommendation from our WONDERFUL cab driver "Beto", we decided to try Dugarel Plays. Boy, what a hidden gem! We were there during their "slow time" right after Hurricane Norbert had passed. We were greeted by the friendliest people who worked... More
