Great view, nice atmosphere

We only stopped for drinks and snacks but prices we thought were okay. There was a great selection of seafood but I was nervous to eat here without seeing if there were any reviews. I found out later the reviews are good so if I am ever back in the area, I would totally try it out. Can't beat the... read more

Great wait staff, great seafood! Really good price for all the food we got (lobster, 15+ scallops, 6+ HUGE shrimp, rice, bread, fruit - $50) and it was very well prepared and super tasty. Nice & strong Margaritas as well ;)

Stopped here on a day trip from the Grand Luxxe. It was the busiest restaurant so we thought that was a good sign and we were right. We hesitated and were walking off when the man on the street offered us "buy the first drink, the second is free" which is probably offered to everyone but after looking at the... More

Best ceviche I've ever put in my mouth! Cold beer, clean restrooms, friendly service, & a beautiful view right on the ocean!

The food was pretty good here but nothing over the top. We ordered our food and then the server complimentary brought out salsa , chips, and fish ceviche. Those were overall pretty good but watch out the salsa has a pretty big bite! I hadthe quesdilla-- note it is not the more american quesdilla-- it is more like a taco/fajitas... More

The service for our party of 13 was great. The mango margaritas were GREAT! The portions are huge and the entire menu is WAY overpriced.

Fat Boy's...or 'El Gordo' as it it known locally, serves up an amazingly diverse menu of seafoods and salads and soups. The stuffed avocado is a meal in itself, and the fish soup is very satisfying. Fat Boys does a lot of business, so there's no need to worry about the products being fresh. They have tables up above in... More

We had a few Strawberry Margaritas they were on special they were the only thing that we all had the same. Needles... More

We took a taxi from our resort into Bucerias, stopped here to have lunch. The grilled garlic shrimp were fantastic. Drinks were good & had very good service. They gave us a complimentary drink after we were finished with our meal. Ate right on the beach overlooking the water, had a great time.

I was not impressed with this place at all. margarita was not that good. Food was average. the big downfall is every 2 minutes you are pestered by a seller of one thing or another.
