I have spent part of the last ten winters in Bucerias. My wife and I eat out regularly. At one time or another we have eaten at every beach restaurant. Adauto's is the best. It offers a nice indoor area raised about ten feet from the level of the beach, but overlooking it, or you can sit under the thatched palapa directly on the beach and wiggle your toes in the sand while you eat. The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated. It is pleasantly lit without harsh lighting. The service is prompt and attentive and friendly and English is spoken. The drinks are honest drinks and not like some restaurants where you wonder if there is any tequila in the margarita. The menu offers a range of dishes with an emphasis on Mexican and seafood, but including curries, steaks, and barbecue. I have never had anything there i did not truly enjoy.

There is a row of beachfront restaurants in Bucerias, and I know that different people have different favorites. I have eaten, at one time or another, in every one of them and none of them, overall, measure up to Adauto's. It may have been very slow service, overcooked seafood, weak drinks, high prices, etc. But when we go to the beach restaurant row, we don't consider any of the others at all.

Had Christmas dinner here. The location is directly on the beach in the sand though there is the option to eat indoors. There are vendors walking about but they are not a problem and accept a polite no. The best part of this restaurant was certainly the location. The food was okay, but we felt that it was pretty touristy ( funny to say that as we were indeed tourists) and the food was lacklustre. Felt pretty North American. We started with chips and guacamole as well as a ceviche. Our men courses were the Diabla fish, Diabla shrimp, two orders of shrimp tacos and a steak with a few shrimp on the side. The shrimp tacos were probably the best choice of the bunch. Nothing bad but nothing really stood out. Fish and shrimp came with a side of rice and steamed vegetables and the steak came with a potato. Service was efficient and food came quickly. Location though was lovely. We will try something else next time through.

We went for dinner one night. The seafood nachos were different and our party enjoyed those. The rest of the meal was sort of average. What was really annoying was that the vendors literally come up to your table to solicit you. That was constant from the time we sat down until we left. While it was nice being right on the beach - the constant need to say no thank you got old fast. Would not return because there are better options in town.

Had coconut prawns that were good and my husband had scallops that were not the greatest. Food was not cheap!

Best food we have had on this trip to Bucerias. We have eaten here on other trips and have always enjoyed it.
