What a great little place this is! We stopped at the end of the day, had some tacos and quesadillas after an ATV beach tour. The staff was very friendly. The food was magnificent. Great views... perfect Baja atmosphere. Loved El Gecko

This is a cute beach restaurant. Great service. Clean bathrooms. Really good food (although a bit on the pricy side). Sammy Davis Jr is their cute little dachshund.

Delicious lunch- guacamole prepared table side and fish tacos, beer and mango margarita! Most tables under awning for shade but open side for beach view. Attentive waiter- watching 15 kite surfers a bonus!

I do not know for sure....but this is a great time of the season for Los Barriles. I would think the restaurant should be open. It's definitely worth checking out.
