Espadin is a must if you like great food, romantic ambience and beautiful views. My family and I visited Espadin not knowing what to expect as we were going based on a friends recommendation, not TA. I am so happy we went and only wish we had found it sooner in our trip. I had the whole red snapper in... More

This is one of my favorite places in the world! You can't pick a bad dish! The food is gourmet and the view is one of Mother Natures best! Sit near the edge for a pan atomic view of the beach. Gaze at the waves that flow into the cove and all your worries will disappear! The creative appetizers are... More

Got the rib eye steak. Thick, seasoned, fully marbled with juicy tender fat (not rubbery gristle, there is a huge difference). Roasted onion, yummy! Just great!

Good customer service, professional and friendly. An absolutely stunning view of Carrizalillo beach combined with very good and reasonably priced food made for a very enjoyable evening. A dinner for four all in, was just under a hundred Canadian. Great for families, couples, etc

A consistently good restaurant. Excellent service by English speaking wait staff, good food, full bar, but the best part is the view - overlooking Carrizalillo beach and fantastic sunsets!

While in Puerto Escondido, we went to this restaurant about six times! The margaritas and appetizers are both delicious, entrees were a bit too expensive for us. This is a great place to go for a light meal that's authentically Mexican but still fancy.

This was our last night and we decided to try this restaurant because we had spent several days on Playa Carrizalillo and wondered what the hotel was like on top of the hill. Then we met some people on the beach who were staying there that recommended the food at the restaurant. We were very happy, while it was for... More

Great food, but having a nice location adds to the experience. We enjoyed two very wonderful family evenings here. Despite being packed, everything was superb.

The view is astonishing, the food was great and Magdalena took good care of us! We will go back. Should arrive early because it gets full around 18h. The Sunset there is breathtaking overlooking Carrizalillo beach. We went 3 times on this trip!!!
