First time visit, restaurant located at the end of the trail, great location away from crowd. The food was excellent, prepared fresh daily therefore it took a little longer to get it but it was worth the wait. Staff very friendly and accommodated with our requests. Excellent place I will go again and again.

We've been to Las Gatas many times and never walked all the way to the far end of the beach. We got there today and it was fabulous. Food was delicious but the tortillas hecho de mano were incredible. Service was superb and the restaurant was so comfortable! The waiter spoke perfect English and was attentive without being pushy.

This was our first visit to the beach and we found Amados. This place is the best location as it is at the end of all of all the restaurants. We noticed a lot of people stopping at the first few restaurants but if you walk to the end it is way worth it. At the end it is less... More

We went to Playa Las Gatas to do some snorkeling and general hanging out on the beach. Walking all the way to the end, we were greeted, not by the usual hawker, but a customer who praised the hospitality of this place. She was so right! The manager told us to make ourselves at home, after pointing out the location... More

While Las Gatas is a pleasant family beach experience, Amado's is the last restaurant on the beach, where there are no crowds and is on the way to Owen Lee's Las Gatas Beach Club, where it's fun to watch the local surfers have fun. The Bustos family lives on the premises, and Amado himself can be booked for a terrific... More

We like to be away from the maddening crowds, so Amado's seemed like a good choice. A couple of other customers, just drinking and relaxing. We ordered Cokes, which came out quickly. We ordered lunch, which didn't come out quite so quickly. 20 minutes after ordering, I asked where the food was. Soon my shrimps in chili sauce was served.... More

After walking the length of the beach and being courted by every restaurant, our party of four settled at Amado's, the last restaurant on the beach, where the kindly waiter Rafael, who had no customers, pleaded with us to sit down. He promised to look after us and told us the beach in front was perfect for swimming. Although all... More
