Sit under rustic thatched-roof umbrellas on the edge of the beach in a green & yellow slingback canvas beach chair while being served the best, large margaritas and the most delicious seafood you can imagine, right at your table looking out over the beautiful Bay of Banderas. The filet of Mahi Mahi... More

We ended up here by accident......part of our group was surfing with Alex from Mita Adventures and it was 9:45 in the morning. Alex suggested we just grab a table and hang out, no pressure to eat or drink. We had just eaten breakfast at our house prior to arrival. 2 hours later we decided it was time for food... More

Don't bother...buy a taco from the street vendor out front. The service was spotty and the food mediocre

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!

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.
