We had a delicious meal here and the service was great. We had a good and lengthy conversation with our friendly waiter. I had the ribs and my partner the chicken fajitas - both very tasty (my ribs fell off the bone). We had guacamole and tortilla chips to start (best guacamole I've had) and chocolate cake (massive slice) to finish. All in all a great place to go to!

Great ambiance as it is directly on the beach, don't go if souvenir vendors bother you. Everything was grilled and in our opinion over cooked. A much better choice is across the street at Mr and Mrs Fish!

The best shrimp quesadillas on the coast. Also great coconut shrimp!! Fun, low key, inexpensive place with very nice staff.

Great beach side service in Bucerias. Very welcoming and helpful staff (even stored our bikes for us). We had an amazing dish of perfectly cooked Red Snapper. Only issue is the CONSTANT interruption by beach vendors...probably nothing the restaurant can do, but literally every 30 seconds someone else was on us.

This restaurant offers good view of the entire Bahia de Banderas bay. It has 3 sections.
One in a restaurant style Palapa, other in an extended palapa in the beach sand and the third right infront of the beach with individual palapas.

The waiters are nice and attentive. They sometimes get distracted but its rare to see one that does not notice you raising your hands to ask for something.

The food is nice, but the only problem is.. the taste varies a lot depending on who the cook is at the moment.
I've had great dishes the majority of the time, with some boring and very few mediocre ones.

I recommend the BBQ style fish filet and the Cazuela Ajo Arriero (Garlic + soft pasilla chile seafood stew)

Note that on particular days, this restaurant might get full to the seams, so plan accordingly.
