We celebrated our 25th here . The ambiance was great. We had a 2 pound lobster between us and they complimented us with champagne with a decorated dessert. Very good service . Will definitely go back!

Served by Javier who was very attentive. Had the short ribs and was delicious! The waiter brought me a fan because it was sweltering.

Luis and Filipe were outstanding! Friendly, polite, and attentive. Because of their awesome service, my wife and I choose to spend an extra day at the beach. Literally could not ask for better, more professional waiters. Gracias amigos! Michael y Caroline de Texas

El Dorado and La Palapa are right next to eachother on the beach front. La Palapa is the nicer of the 2. Same owner probably. I'm not sure about Vista Grill. I think if you call to make a reservation just specify where you... More
