We had dinner here. Tables are set in the sand. Service was excellent. I ordered the chicken enchiladas with verde sauce and my husband had shrimp special. Both were good. $45 for 2 plus tip. Excellent value!

El Dorado has been beachfront and a standard to achieve for many, many years and deserves a try on your vacation. The telling fact is that it is also very popular with locals especially on the weekends. The food is good and the prices are very goos. Give the local flavors and specials a try. When we visit we always... More

Friends and I went spearfishing today and took out fresh catch to El Dorado. They created the most delicious ceviche and fish tacos. Highly recommended on the food front.

This is an old place under new management and we thought it was just great! The margaritas were so amazing, especially the blackberry ones! We went to the beach every day and they graciously let us sit on their beach chairs which were super cummfy. We had lunch with them every day it seemed and it was super yummy. The... More

Ate dinner there with my partner last week. We sat upstairs and enjoyed a magnificent view of the bay. 2 Cold beers up here and we were in heaven. The only issue we had was that we suspect that one of our meals (the enchiladas) were reheated. I had fish tacos that were good. But when enchiladas come out in... More

A local restaurant for fair priced local fish and Mexican coastal fare. I love the Ceviche tostadas as an appetizer and whole red snapper for a main course. Cold beer and good margaritas. A local was gathering oysters and I got a dozen fresh oysters shucked on the spot. Eat with your feet in the sand or lounge under the... More

Well, we haven't been to El Dorado for about two years. We decided we should probably go there more often. Breakfast up on the upper deck overlooking the bay was GREAT! We started with fresh orange juice for all four of us and then ordered omelettes and french toast. The three omelettes were huge and flavorful one stuffed with shrimp... More
