We stopped in because El Brujo was recommended by the owner of the condo we rented. As everyone's reviews say, the place is a little out of the way, but it's cute and quaint. We had a Cadillac margarita which was great and we both had fajitas that were excellent. Our server spoke perfect English which was nice, as we... More

Our divemaster recommended El Brujo and she was right. It is a little out of the way from many of the hotels. It's about 7-8 blocks in from the beach (towards the mountains) but worth the walk. I had the chicken with pineapple which was great. It is a grilled chicken breast with pineapple bits and a teriyaki-like sauce. The... More

This place was recommended to us by our concierge, and we only got to eat here twice. If we found it sooner it most likely would've been our lunch and dinner spot every single day! First day we ate here was for lunch. Its in old town on the corner and not touristy at all. I had fajitas and my... More

El Brujo was recommended highly by our local friend .... His words were "if you want a really good local restaurant, Mexican cuisine, this is one of my favor favorites, for 1/2 the price as you'll find in the tourist districts", he was right on! El Brujo is very nice it is located in the Old Town Distrct, cobblestone streets,... More

El Brujo was suggested by our concierge to visit for authentic mexican food. El Brujo did NOT disappoint. We started with guacamole, which was so delicious, and we both had molcajete for our entree. I had the beef molcajete and my significant other had the mixed molcajete. Amazing. Highly recommend.

This place is plain and simple and the staff are all charming. The food is FRESH and wonderfully complex. Try one of the "stuffed" dishes.

Between the house margarita on the rocks, an unexpectedly good bowl of seafood soup, and the evening breeze, I don’t think a buzz could be any nicer. It is a straight from the core, full-body warmth like none I’ve experienced from a meal in a long time. El Brujo can do that to you. But, maybe I need to start... More

Had some pretty potent margaritas and a variety of delicious appetizers and entrees. We were stuffed. My only minor gripe was there was no air conditioning and it was caliente eating from the bubbling molcajete.

This place is a hidden gem! We stayed a week in PV and ate out at different restaurants every night. We were here during Restaurant Week so we sampled many of the higher end places to take advantage of the specials. Most meals were delicious but none of them were as good at the one we had here! This place... More
