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 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.

We were shopping in Bucerias and needed a drink after battling the vendors for about an hour. We were looking for a spot on the beach and stumbled onto Fat Boys Seafood. It was great. Tables were right on the beach and shaded if you wanted it. We only ordered drinks and an appetizer but the service was very good,... More

We had a fabulous time and a great setting on the beach. It made the last night of our holiday extra special. Won't ever forget it and will... More
