4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Loved the yellow and green tablecloths. And the buckets of beer, cleanest washrooms around. Great chicken nachos.

“Decent breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I wish there were a way to do 3.5 stars -- I'd say this was better than average, but not quite very good. Good. I had chilequiles, which were quite good, and some good bacon. My dining companion had machaca, which were less successful. Service was very nice, but also quite slow.

“Love El Dorado!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

We have been many times to El Dorado and the food is wonderful You can dine right on the sand, have great drinks, listen to mariachi's, and walk out to the jetty. The service is friendly and we always talk to interesting people from all over the world. Try the garlic with fresh fish. Wonderful!!

“So Sad........”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Used to be my family's favorite beach restaurant for an afternoon on t he beach, or breakfast or a nice dinner. Sadly, now most of the friendly waiters are gone and the prices have escalated way too much. It just isn't a good choice on the beach in Punta de Mita anymore and I hate to say that.

“Sand,beach,beer and fresh oysters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

A nice Mexican restaurant on the beach at Punta Mita. Great service and good prices. Sit with your feet in the sand while watching the pelicans dive for food. Then after your beer bucket and appetisers order your meal and sit under the giant palapa. Ceviche tostadas, shrimp cocktails and o did I mention that a guy goes out an digs up oysters and delivers them to your table just shucked. For a main course have the whole red snapper with butter and garlic or the shrimp brochettes . Flan for desert.
Then back to your comfy chair for a siesta before they ask you if your are ready for a daiquiri or margarita. Good people.
