El Shrimp Bucket was wonderful. The Shrimp Ceviche was the best that I have ever eaten and was large enough to share. I highly recommend El Shrimp Bucket.

We enjoyed a stop here during Carnaval! It had a great location, good food, and great service! They often have live music, and that just adds to the fun!

We had eaten here a few years ago and knew we would not be disappointed! (In fact, booked the hotel directly adjacent to the "Bucket" to be near by). Highly recommend the chilled peal and eat shrimp. Very accommodating servers, and excellent breakfast menu!

Stopped in for a couple cold beers and the tuna teranido. Delicious. It hit the spot. Worth every penny.

After a morning of walking we stopped in for a milk shake. It was served in a tall glass with whip cream. Great Location on the Malecon.

Stopped here for a lunch meal as it was suggested that the place was a good place to eat. It is a bit "touristy" but the food was good and service excellent

I was surprised by the price but happy with the service and shrimp. We went at noon on a Sunday and they were still serving breakfast. When we were obviously disappointed our waiter went back to the kitchen and the cooks agreed to cook us...More
