Be careful of the Picante sauce. Eso no juegos! Food and service was great. Ocean view. Atmosphere very tranquil. Mojitos are good as well.

We stayed at the Lifestyle Resort next door and needed to get away from the resort food. Found Los Charros and then came back a second night. The fajitas were wonderful and the margaritas and mojitos were as well. Everything was so fresh. We went deep sea fishing and caught a 60lb marlin. The captain filleted some of the meat... More

A lot of great sharing options when you are looking for an afternoon snack. Sit back with a fruity drink and share a couple of entrees.

We saw the restaurant as we walked from the Cofresi to the Ocean Park. A waitress handed us a pamphlet and we decided to try it for dinner as I am a big fan of Mexican meals. Dinner was perfect, excellent, one of the best we ever had. The wine was a great addition to our meal. The staff is... More

Near OceanWorld Marina, we are here while killing time before boarding our charter boat to the Silver Banks. Fantastic food, nice breeze, and great view of the beach. Would highly recommend this place over any of the touristy areas around the marina itself.

My wife and I enjoy going here once or twice every few months. Food and service are very good, yet for what you get it is very pricey. It is in the Tourrist area so I guess they can get the customers in even at those prices.

We were here 2 times in 1 week while on vacation. Once for supper and once for lunch. The staff were great and the meal was fantastic. Reasonable prices and some of the top shelf tequila you will not find anywhere else in the DR. Managed to meet the owners who were the most friendly people we had meet. This... More

We are staying 18 days Lifestyles Cofresi Palm Beach resort. This restaurant is just outside the gates by the beach within a few minute walk. We met the owner Tim and his wife remembered my husband and I from the previous year. We met friends for dinner and drinks. I can honestly say the meals look just like the pictures... More

Specializing in fresh homemade, Mexican cuisine, Los Charros’ kitchen is overseen by Juanita Vazquez. Juanita grew up in Acapulco and lived in Mexico City and Cancun. A consummate student of the Mexican tradition, Juanita toured Mexico for 16 years and developed exceptional proficiency with the culture, folklore dances and cooking styles from the Aztec west coast to Mayan east coast of Mexico. She prides herself on the fresh preparation of pre-Columbian and classic Mexican dishes that native Mexicans enjoy; neither too heavy nor over-spiced. For “Americanized” fare, Juanita collaborates with her "Gringo", Timo, a restaurateur with experience at trendy restaurants in Florida, Tennessee and Texas. Together with our island cooks, the Los Charros team guarantees the finest in authentic Mexican cuisine, popular Tex-Mex specialties and local island fare.
