Description: Mahahual’s premier ocean front dining experience. A unique cultural and culinary blend of the best of Mexico and the US. Our food, music and ambiance combine the tastes and flavors of both of these two wonderful countries. We are located on the Malecon right in the center of the downtown beachfront. We offer comfortable inside dining as well as tables in the sand, just a few steps from the beautiful clear Caribbean waters. Best food and conversation in town!

“Great experience, great lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2010

Owned by Steve Uhl, who grew up in Dallas area. Friendly staff, especially George, makes sure patrons enjoy their food and drink in this little bit of paradise on the Carribean. Not to be missed.

Jorge & Steve were great hosts and always going above and beyond to make your experience grand!!

From local tips on places to check out to free calls home - this is the place to be!!

“Make Tropicante your first stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2010

Make this your first stop!! Not only is the food terrific, (try the Molcajete Jalisco or the Angus burger) the beer is super cold and it's easy to find, right in the middle of the malecon. The owner Steve is sooooo helpful at pointing you in the right direction around town. Quit charming! As a matter of fact he is helping me plan our next vacation this winter. And Jorge the waiter was just the best. Even went as far as going to get me shrimp from someone to cook at our beach house. We ended up going back our last day we liked it so well. I'm thinking if you go there on a cruise this would be a great place to spend an afternoon on the beach getting the real feel of Mahaual. Also a big plus was Steve lets customers use his phone to call the US for free. We'll definately be spending a few afternoons there this winter. Kerri

“Just another day in Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2010

We arrived on the Celebrity Solstice May2010 , took the shuttle bus $3 each, to the Malecon (oceanfront boardwalk). George (the charming waiter) convinced that his restaurant had the "best" food. A charming place with tables on the beach as well as inside. Fresh made to order guacamole (fabulous), salsa, homemade chips, 2 margaritas, the mini-burrito plate, 2 beers. All this for $20..not to mention the view & atmosphere.......life just doesn't get any better than this..... The portions were large and delicious. We also spent an hour chatting with Steve, the owner. Tropicante also offers homemade ice cream and free calls to the US & Canada.
