My wife and I heard about El Velero from another couple and we went on Wednesday for Barbeque Night. The service was very slow and the food was just okay. My wife ordered the grilled pork chop and I ordered shrimp brochette. We waited about 30 minutes to get pur food and they were not that busy. Most people go... More

Very good fruit juices and pineapple or banana pancakes for breakfast. Dinner has good fish and seafood. BBQ nights are very good.

The best part of this restaurant is the location, steps from the beach (a section in Playa Hermosa that you can walk the beach and eat at half a dozen restaurants). A perfect view of the sunset!Service was adequate, food good but not outstanding. Dinner much better than breakfast.

We ate more than a dozen meals here. Whether it was breakfast, lunch, or dinner, the service was great, the food was great, and the prices were moderate.

We found this hotel/bar on our local beach. You can use their sunbeds if you use the bar and it is a lovely spot to sit and people watch people on the beach. Food is reasonable if limited.

Went for tacos on Tuesdays.........BEST ever!!! I had the three as offered (one of each type), but they willingly accommodated my husband's request for double of the chicken.

We ate here for dinner our first night here--it was Taco Tuesdays, the host (and owner we believe) had a big personality and welcomed us in even though we didn't have reservations. We sat at the bar since we didn't have reservations. On Taco Tuesdays you get 3 tacos-- chicken, beef, and seafood. They came in a fried tortilla--a little... More

never had like this. It is fantastic and a most enjoyable experience. Besides the standard ribs etc, they serve barbeque fish and other assorted items. A unique experience for the first timer.
