We arrived early in the afternoon and were the only people at the restaurant. Service was great throughout as each time something was finished the plates were removed. It was nice to have a very cold beer in a frosted mug. My wife and I both ordered the grilled Jumbo shrimp plate. All was excellent.

My husband loves the whole red snapper. He comes to beach restaurants in Bucerias looking for the whole red snapper and is happiest when served that way and Dugarel plays never disappoints. It is prepared just the way he likes it and we both enjoy the margaritas there. I had traditional mexican plate with chicken enchilada mole and small piece... More

Second year in a row for dinner at Dugarel Plays. First year 2016 table reserved was not provided even though reconfirmed 3 times leading up to the big day. Dinner was decent and everyone's enjoyed the evening. 2017 Valentine's Day arrives we are anxious but apprehensive about getting table, instead of being seated at requested table we were given likely...

We went a couple of times. The Chicken Quesadillas are great. my Wife Jo & I shared a plate and we were stuffed. They are so tasty and good and the beer was so smooth and quenching---BRAVO---We took a taxi twice from Paradise Village for lunch and would do it again

The best seafood in Bucerias! Rueban and his staff give great service and awesome food. The shrimp plate for two is the best anywhere.

Went here because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. We ordered guacamole and chips it took a while as they are under staff. My husband had the Red Snapper and I had the butterflies shrimp that they recommended . Both was okay had better. Don't think we will go back as we have had better service at other restaurants.

As of this writing Dugarels is the 8th highest rated restaurant in Bucerias. It should be rated higher. This is our favorite restaurant...went there 4 nights on our most recent trip...made the mistake of mixing it up some by going to a higher rated one and was very disappointed. Everything served at Dugerials is delicious but try the shrimp plater... More

The drinks and food were delicious 5* It was after our table was cleared and we waited and waited and waited for our bill. We had the correct change so we really didn't have to wait which was was good. They charged us for an extra drink but removed it immediately. 2*

We have eaten here twice in the last week. We have had the calamari, a bean and cheese nacho, and we split the giant shrimp dinner. Delicious!! Victor is a wonderful waiter. Their pico de gallo and guacamole are wonderful.
