“good food, good variety”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Menu had good variety... fish, BBQ, mexican...

Everything we had was very good. I had the catch of the day which was GREAT. Only stayed 5 days, almost came back a second time, but decided to go hit somewhere else. Had a bunch of TV's, and a band (guitar/percussion) started playing later.

The service & food was exceptional! We highly recommend this place, & look forward to going back again. We were so impressed with the guacamole made right at our table!

“Very Good All Around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

We had dinner there yesterday, 1/2/13. We've enjoyed this place in the past, but have heard of the recent changes to management and staff and thought we'd better check it out again. Thank God not much has changed. Same solid menu, cooking staff, and service! All very good!
At this time of year, we especially appreciate being able to drive up and get a "reserved" parking spot right by the front door. After being seated immediately, our waiter quickly asked for our drink orders. All the usual choices... but you must ask for chips 'n salsa and water.
The salads and fresh fish dishes were very good. I'm a big fan of the Pollo Primavera, which is a chicken breast wrapped around some asparagus and pieces of mango, on top of some garlicy mashed potatoes and sauteed veggies. All topped with a coconut cream sauce. Plenty of food and pretty good for 199 pesos.
Dessert here rocks too. We loved the table-side bananas foster and the sopopillas. These desserts are usually only found at the more expensive places in town... Just as good here for a reasonable price.
All in all, this is not the high-end or the local cheapee place to go. It's in the middle... solid... good.
We will be back.

“Great live music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

We went to Desperados for dinner on a Saturday evening. The restaurant wasn't very busy but the atmosphere was good. There was a duo playing live music which was great. I'm normally not a huge fan of live music when I'm eating but they were playing such good tunes on a guitar, it wasn't too loud and we could still have a conversation.

The food was ok, huge portions if that's what you are after. The service was average. Not a long wait, but the waiter could have been more personable. No major issues though.

A good place to go if you want a change from your all inclusive hotel.

“Fajitas! Nachos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

OMG, this place it wonderful! We're repeat customers and took our family there this week. The best nachos and steak fajitas ever. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Don't attempt the nachos on your own; they feed at least two people as a meal.
