My friends and I spent a few hours in Bucerias shopping and checking out the area. We stopped by The Fat Boy Seafood for a cocktail and were sad we had to leave. The chips, salsa, guacamole and margaritas were to die for! I wish we would have been able to stay and enjoy the view during dinner, but we... More

My adult daughter and I stayed at an area AI resort but going from a relative recommendation to eat out here, we did and we were so happy with our choice. Love the tables set up on the sandy beach looking at the ocean view, people watching, hoping for a sunset, knowing an awesome meal was being prepared. We basically... 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 ;)

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... More

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

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.
