Great Breakfast On The Beach!!

Wonderful breakfast served all day. We ate their 3 times during our stay. You order off a blackboard located in the back of the restaurant. Be sure to sit out on their deck to view the beauty of the Caribbean.

The food, location & service are excellent. The location is on the Caribbean beach with turquoise water & white sand--pretty as a postcard. Easy place to be similar to Fidos. Tired of sitting? get in the water & then come back to your table. My wife finally told that we had to try other restaurants. Good to excellent local fresh... More

Very good bbq and fish tacos. Be prepared to wait : the place is very popular. The seating outside on their balcony or by the water is unbeatable. Cash only.

Great place for breakfast or lunch. The view is hard to beat, too. Service is a little slow but well worth the wait.

I have come to the island for many years but never ate at Estel's.... until now. Sadly the staff was not very attentive AND more importantly the fish tacos were only average. I wanted to try the chicken tacos too but the would not allow a combination.

Estel's is always busy but if you have to wait for a table no big deal as your right on the beach. We have come for breakfast almost every morning of our time in San Pedro town. They have a very large menu to choose from. Waiters can have a bit of a attitude sometimes but maybe that's because they... More

A local told about Estel's and he was right..... great breakfast and the coffee was good (which is important to me)..... nothing like breakfast with a view.

Perhaps going to Estel's is all a matter of timing regarding giving a good review. Our party of four attempted brunch at a time when almost all tables were filled and people milled about. Hence, our experience was not as good as some have stated. Two in our group had a problem with getting what they ordered, two experienced being... More

Only had breakfast here but all were great and tasteful. Views are great but most importantly the Bloody Mary's are amazing, had too many to count! Go enjoy some of your own!
