Not sure why this place is ranked higher. Service is great, food wonderful and can't beat the view. Give it a try - you wont be disappointed. Ask for table on the edge Will be back!

Had a sunset dinner with another couple on 13 March. Ordered a strawberry daiquiri made with Malibu rum. When they brought it to the table we tasted it and it was like crushed ice and fresh blended strawberries with no alcohol that we could taste. They actually made two, so they offered up the other one and it also failed... More

We have been coming here for YEARS! My daughter who is now almost 16, wrote in her school journal about this place on her first trip when she was really little, I think 7 and ordered snapper. It was served to her whole. She loved it!. We still do. We have brought several groups of friends here on different trips.... More

WE went on the recommendation from a bellman at Villa del palmar Flamingos. IT was outstanding. service was excellent, atmosphere was beautiful. Overlooking the beach. I had the steak others had Butterfly Jumbo Shrimp. Everything was delicious definitely added this to our restaurant rotation while in Bucerias. very reasonable price also. Bring cash prefer cash to credit card.

This is a crowd favorite on the beach in Bucerias. We went there one night with a party of (6). We had reservations and were seated immediately. Prices are very reasonable. I had steak (usually don't order meat in Mexico) and it was very good. Rib Eye for only $260 pesos. Others had shrimp, and loved it. My wife had... More

It was a friend's last night in Bucerias so she picked a nice venue which was Dugerals. Two of us chose the fish fillet which the waiter advised it was mahi, mahi. My husband... More

We have been visiting Bucerias for years and this restaurant is my husbands favorite. However, this year we were very disappointed. Despite making a reservation in advance and being promised a corner table. We were a party of 4 seated at a table that would be "tight" for two. Our bottle of wine would not even fit on the table...

Food as always was excellent. It's been one of our favorites for years. We've been there twice this trip. However, although they say they accept credit cards, the "credit card machine wasn't working" either time.

We have eaten at Dugarels on several occasions. This past Christmas and New Years. We took family for both Christmas Day and New Year's Eve Dinners. We had a fabulous time with great service. We all enjoyed our meals, from the Mexican Plate to the Red Snapper (a steal of a deal compared to other restaurants) We loved the Cadillac... More
