We were in a hurry because we had a night tour waiting, but were served very quickly. We had half a bottle of wine left and it was our last evening, and they allowed to drink our own wine and brought us two glasses. We had very different dishes, shrimps and hamburger, but woth were really delicious, refined and enough!... More

The shrimp stuffed fish was AMAZING!!! They also make their drinks quite strong. I had two Margaritas (which are made from scratch, not a mix) and I was done for the night! It's also a really unique little place. I was temped to go back, but our stay was too short and we wanted to try other places in town!

One of the few liquor bars in quiet drakes bay. This place is filled with locals and tourist alike cooling off with some rum or other libation. This shady spot has 3 TVs making it a great spot for catching the game.

Cold beer, great food, and easy access to the beach. Chicken nachos, fries, and quesadilla were all fantastic.

I was not very convinced about this place but finally I decided to go since I was eager for some shrimps. The pineapple juice nothing to die for but when my Shrimp Ceviche came was just amazing. It was really fresh and tasty, exactly the way I love it. Then decided to ask for the Garlic Shimp Spaghetti and it... More

There's only 1 way to describe the seafood at Margartita Marisqueria and that's positively delicious! From the tasty fish tacos to the scrumptious camarones con mucho ajo, it's one of the bestest restaurants in Drake!

The waitress spoke no English at all. (I understand that is our problem for not speaking Spanish), but none-the-less, it made ordering challenging. I am vegetarian and it was difficult to relay, order, and few options on the menu. My husband loved his red snapper but thought it was overpriced.

My girlfriend and I came here twice to eat because the seafood is incredible. When paying, do check your bill though. The menu says that taxes are included in the prices but a service charge might be added to the bill. However also the tax was added again to the bill. We told the waiter and after insisting she checked... More
