We were looking for seafood and El Makito came up with some decent reviews (other than some reports of long wait times). We have been to the eastern side of the island before and found it to be much more private and catering to the locals as well as visitors. Since we had plenty of time for dinner, we went and the experience was good. A couple of members of our party had an issue with fish being served with heads and tails, so the waiter had them chopped off of the red snappers before they arrived at the table, which was very considerate. My wife had the fish with onions and even though the portion size was huge, she nearly ate the entire dish. I had one of their mufongos and up until this point I thought they were supposed to be bland and tasteless so as to accentuate what was served with it, but this one had great flavor all by itself. Things to watch out for are: 1) the beans that are part of the rice and beans are not vegetarian and 2) no free refills on iced tea ($3 each). Check out the pictures we took from our table...like a painting! That plus the friendly locals that were working hard to accommodate us gringos are what put our review to 4 stars.
