The view was spectacular, but the food and service were just so so. They serve mostly seafood. The restaurant is very casual and does not take reservations.

My first visit to this fabulous restaurant and bar in Bucerias. In the heart of the town with seating inside and also on the beach. The 4 of us girls went specifically for the jumbo shrimp. It was amazing! Freshly made 4 different types with some veggies and rice. Perfect for lunch or dinner.

We went to Bucerious for a day trip and stopped in at Fat Boys for lunch. The view was spectaular on the beach along with a cool breeze. Food was very good but found it a little pricey. The vendors came by continually but if you ignore them they just walk on by.

Went there and the staff were excellent. My only complaint was I ordered filet mignon and got a round steak. It was a little chewy but tasted very good. all my friends ordered Sea food and thought it was very good.

We sat at a table directly on the beach during high tide... Water could not have been more than 30 feet from us. Live entertainment was an older guy playing guitar and... More

Slow service but decent food. If you sit on the beach, it's non stop vendors interrupting your dinner.

We had a seafood platter with lobster, huge scallops and prawns. It was so delicious - more than enough for 2 people.

The placed was packed when we got there, we waited about 5 minutes at the bar, then got a table. We were served right away, ordered a bucket of beers, our server was right on top of opening our beers as we needed another, when we ordered food it came quickly and was delicious! Great atmosphere, great location, will be... More
