Visited Nivel Mar one morning in February for Breakfast (and some cervasas) Great place! Service was good, restaurant is very comfortable and there are places to find shade if need be. Beach at Maguey is wonderful for swimming. We each enjoyed a tequila sunrise, then Huevos Rancheros and a couple more Dos Equis. Wish that we had been able to... More

We actually went back the next day. Coconut shrimp with tamarind sauce was fabulous. And the shrimp tasting options with 4 different preparations also yummy. Great mojitos. Also Sunday brunch.

We had an enjoyable morning at Maguey beach and tried this restaurant (the one with white canopies). At 180 pesos, the coconut shrimp was pricey (had about 6-7 shrimp with rice and tiny portion of tomato and avocado salad). At noon, the mixed drinks were 2 for 1, and the mojitos were good value because they were 2 for 1... More

Hola CanadaBudgetgirl Thank you for your visit, and for your review, since we will use these observations to improve. The prices on our menu are standardized and not more expensive than the other restaurants on any beach in Huatulco. Sorry about the confusion on your order, I can see that happening and I have had hired a new waiter, Jorge... More

Opened in December 2013 this sophisticated restaurant on El Maguey is sure to be a hit. Had our share of 2 for 1 cocktails during the 1-3pm happy hour. The drinks were beautifully prepared with fresh ingredients. Order the coconut shrimp, fresh shrimp coated with freshly grated coconut with a tamarind dipping sauce. Out standing! Great quality, comfortable seating and... More

Located on beautiful Maguey beach, this is a wonderful place to go and have a cold beer and something to eat. We were there for brunch. I had a lovely fruit plate with a very tasty cinnamon roll. Hubby had one of his favorites, eggs Benedict.

Couldn't wait to visit Alfredo's Nivel Mar Beach Club!!! And to enjoy the famous "Stuffed pineapple", cooked in a fire oven!! Drinks were cold, service was excellent. The new atmosphere is very refreshing and relaxing. We will be back!!

We stopped at Maguey Bay during our full day 7 Bays boat tour. I had read about Alfredo's place and was looking forward to having a meal here. When we walked into the restaurant, which by the way has an amazing atmosphere, we were greeted by a very friendly server who invited us to find a seat wherever we liked.... More

Alfredo Patino's Nivel Mar Beach Club and Restaurant at Maguey Bay was a delightful surprise on my recent trip to Huatulco. We spent a few relaxing hours ordering refreshments under the bright white sail canvas of Nivel Mar's beach-front location. The coconut shrimp are huge and were scrumptious, light and tasty with incredibly fresh coconut the like of which we... More

Great place to eat!! I had the half pineapple filled with cheese and shrimp then open fire cooked and it is the best dish I have eaten. The beach is absolutely gorgeous and the people around the area were very friendly. This should be a stop for everybody!!!
