El Capitan was packed out every night when most of the other Restaurants along the main road were either empty or had few guests so they must be doing something right. Both food and drinks are well priced with good service - we had drinks at El Capitan most evenings but only ate there once - the shrimp spaghetti was packed out with prawns and the salad I ordered as a side dish could have fed four people! This is obviously a popular place and I would recommend.

Sits directly on a corner at a busy intersection. Great place to watch people , and very much a local place

El Capitan was a fun, cheap place with cold beer and yummy ceviche and tacos. Their service was spot on and we had a huge meal for two, with drinks for about $30 US.

It was one of the best cerviches we had during the 10 day Mexico trip. The "El Capitan" style cerviche gave a nice kick to it. note that a Large can feed a family of 6 (even though the waiter said it was only enough for 2) The small was enough for 2 people as an appetizer. The grilled shrimp tacos w/ spinach were also delicious.

Almost same quality as El Camello but with nicer atmosphere. I had ceviche here and it was the same standard as at el Camello. Nicer atmosphere in this place. Eat fish. Avoid the meat would be my recommendation.
