Visited here 3 times and I have to say that there menu is a little bit limited as some of the foods are really just different renditions of the same. I mainly go here for the Shish Kababs and Chicken Kababs which are really good and fairly priced at less than $10. I ask them cut them smaller and cook them longer as they tend to use larger chinks of meat and by making this request you will get a much better shish kabab. The atmosphere is lively with music, bands that walk through, fast service and overall a good place to eat in the the Bucerias Centro area. This place is not located in front of the water as the other restaurants are but you will get better food at a better price without the hassling and if you have ever visited Mexico you understand !

Outstanding local place. Pedro lured us in with a tempting free round of beers that were very cold! Glad we did it. Ceviche was the freshest we've had with a huge portion I had the Hauchinango a la Mexicana -red snapper mexican style.. beautifully cooked with delicious rice and fresh steamed vegetables. Others had the Dorado-mahi Mahi grilled and the chicken enchiladas and shrimp quesadillas. All fresh, hot and served with a smile from Pedro. All very reasonably priced. Mostly all locals in the place so you know its good.

We came across El Payo and Pedro while walking around Bucerias in the evening. We were looking for a good dinner spot and we decided to try this one. It looked informal and was full of locals enjoying dinner together. We didn't regret our choice. The service was attentive, the food was tasty and the overall experience good. The mahi mahi fish tacos were outstanding as were the shrimp tacos. My daughter enjoyed the chicken enchiladas, which were filled with the most tender chicken that you could tell had been stewed all day. We consider this place a good find among the beautiful beaches of Bucerias. If you are in the area, it is definitely worth checking out!
