“A great bday dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

My granddaughters bday was a very special occasion, thanks to Lettie and her incredible staff! We had a table beachside facing the ocean. The staff at El Anclote is attentive, kind, and helpful and made the bday girl feel very special. Lettie brought our 12 year old a pretty little bouquet of roses and an orchid. Her request was for lobster, which was prepared perfectly. The rest of us had fish - the freshest around. Just lovely. We asked Lettie to pick up a cake at "Pie in the Sky", and it was perfect as well. A very pretty chocolate cake frosted in pink and white. Just perfect for our Princessa! This is without question, the best restaurant on the beach, for service, value, and incredible food!

“Nice fishing village, great beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Different menu than most. Fantastic food. Usually one of the best places to go. This time although the food was great, the service was very poor. We had to ask for everything, the waiter seemed to not want to wait on us. Couldn't get another drink. Was disappointed

“Rehearsal Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I had the pleasure of having my rehearsal dinner at The Original El Anclote and cannot say enough nice things to do it justice. Leticia and her staff went out of their way to create a fun and inviting atmosphere for 40 of our closest friends and relatives, with flowers, music, and a seafood menu. The food was amazing, the service was impeccable, and the view cannot be measured. It was more than I had expected and I will definitely be back to visit our new friends.

“Yummy Breakfast on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

This is a good choice for a casual breakfast or lunch, right on the beach, a wonderful view to accompany your meal.
