“Fresh Food and Friendly Peoples: Surfers Slam, Smoothies and Fish Tacos (if you can get them ;)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

I had the pleasure of meeting both Dan and his daughter Caitlin while I spent 2 days at Casa Dan's and more than 10 meals there over the course of several weeks. The smoothies are fresh, and refreshing. Huge glass of freshly squeezed orange juice that must have had 10 oranges in it. I think the surfer slam gets its name from what the waves at the Mexican Pipeline does to most surfers. Fish tacos are rare to find and don't last long because they are truly the best around. Home to the worlds big wave surfers, and the genuine kindness of the surf culture, Dan's place will leave you feeling like one of the family. I highly recommend it.

“Dan does it well! and plays a good game of pingpong too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

I stayed at the hotel for two weeks, and loved having Dan's Cafe Deluxe as a place to eat. They serve up big portions of freshly prepared meals with something for almost everyone. Good coffee and baked goods, huge fruit salads, wonderful french toast....smoothies, green drinks, salads - yummy fish tacos. I don't eat meat - but I am sure there are burgers too!
The staff are welcoming and friendly, lots of repeat customers, and the guests all converge.
If you are not staying at the hotel - it is definitely worth the walk along the beach to have a meal while in Puerto - you'll want to come more than once!

“Great breakfasts & lunches!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

Service was friendly and fast, atmosphere was fun. We were also there when it was full of 120 Canadians and 20 Americans when Canada won Olympic Gold! Dan goes out of his way to make sure that this place feels like a home away from home.
