We drove to this restaurant, so we went down a short back street that was behind some homes and shacks. We thought we may have made a wrong turn, but we hadn't. The food was the least expensive of all our meals out in Flamingo....More

Always authentic, always beautiful, and best price for a Pargo Entero, favorite dish amongst the locals. Local Mom and Pop place, with a wonderful view of the Catalinas.

This is one of those places that you hate to review because you don't want it to ever change. Very local place, off the beaten path, with simple tables under a tin roof on the beach. Hammocks available if you want to spend the day....More

Restaurant Estero Azul is located near Flamingo on your way to Potrero. Before you turn right at the beach at Restaurant Plemar keep on going straight all way to the back of the road (about 100m). You'll find a fisherman's house with a small eating place next to the beach. Here they'll serve you the catch of the day without paying Flamingo prices. This google search (El Estero Azul Playa Flamingo) has little information but at least lets you know it's legit. GREAT PLACE!
