Safe to eat on the wild side?

I plan on spending quite a bit of time on the east side. Especially during the day and for lunches. How safe is it to eat? I heard they have no electricity or refrigeration. What about Coconuts, Playa Bonita and somewhere called Mezcalito's (SP?)?

Never had a problem there. Just stay away from the rasta bar on the west side of the road (inland). Bad food/high prices.

Bob Marley's is across the road from the Rasta (Reggae) bar. When we were at Coconut's I'm pretty sure they had electricity. At least they had music and it was not from a battery operated boom box. Maybe their electricity comes from a generator.

Hi, we had a lobster lunch at Punta Morena on the East Side. Yum, Yum. It was $15 and you got a tail, fries, and salad.

Mezcalito's has the best grilled shrimp on the planet.

Take care eating over there by making sure to eat things well cooked. I do not suggest eating cerviche which is raw fish. Taste great, but the lime juice is not enough to kill any bacteria.

The food is OK on the eat side but the planet is a big place.
