After shopping in Bucerias one day on our recent trip one of the shopkeepers recommended this place. They were absolutely correct. The menu is really very simple, several types of incredibly fresh seafood cooked several possible different ways. If you want good basic seafood in an absolutely spectacular setting right on the beach, this is the place to go.

We visited Fat Boys on 2 separate occasions during the Christmas Holidays, and both time were excellent. We had a group of 8 and we all enjoyed our meals and drinks. Service was excellent and the washroom facilities were very clean.

We were a group of 6 and stopped for drinks and lunch. It's a great location at the water's edge. All of us had fish or shrimp tacos or quesadillas. They were all delicious!! The service was great and prices very reasonable. We would all certainly return.

The Fat Boy Seafood is hidden away in a flea market but still on the beach in Bucerias. Great ambiance, seafood and beer. Definitely worth a visit!

The wife and I wanted to have a dinner on the beach.. One of our hotel guys recommended this place.. I'll admit, at first the location gave me pause... But the food and service was exceptional.

Had lunch for 5 here. Various margaritas, mixed seafood ceviche (wow), large seafood platter for 2, octopus, tuna tacos, vegetarian quesadilla. All were great although the lobster on the seafood platter was a bit over cooked. The char-grilled octopus was definitely the highlight, excellent! Service outstanding. Very casual, plastic chairs right on the beach with large awning covering the whole... More

Got up to get a glass (of any description) saw... More
