This restaurant is on the beach near the plaza in Bucerias. Our favorite meal is the Seafood Salad. We share one order because it is so large. It is loaded with fresh octopus and shrimp. Try it you will like it.

Grabbed lunch here when we walked into Bucerias from the RDC. Its not cheap but the food was awesome and the portions were huge. Save some money by sharing and have a couple extra cervesas. Definitely worth checking out

The setting is outstanding and the service was good. We had enchiladas and they were just ok. I think it is worth going but not a fine dining restaurant.

We stopped in here after walking around Bucerias and wanting a cold beverage or two. The servers were fantastic and friendly plus the beer cheep. We also decided to have some food and we can't stop thinking about the delicious Guacamole. Watching the other food come out of the kitchen everything looked great. Also, you can use Canadian dollars to... More

We've eaten at this restaurant every time we visited Bucerias for the last 5 years. The food is good, but it is my son's love of their guacamole that ensures our return. We've always found the staff to be very friendly and they take good care of us when we stop in. We'll be back.

The service was great, food was delicious and the view was nice. We decided to order a few bottles of water, 3 non alcoholic... More
