We loved our cocktails and this ambience so much, we came back for dinner! Chef Luis Alberto Jimenez made our whole trip. The unique fresh salad, local yellowfin in mole sauce, his skill with unique grains, and a desert of cubed pineapple & jicama in Michoacán rum with shaved sorbet, goat cheese and chili powder were just amazing.

The crab eggs Benedict were perfect. The outside patio has beautiful view of the ocean. The service was great. Can't wait to go for lunch.

We had a very nice breakfast yesterday at Lugareno. My crab benedict was very tasty as were the deep fried potatoes. Our server was very pleasant and we enjoyed talking with him. It's in a very nice setting with the courtyard below in one direction and a distant view of the ocean the other way. Meant to ask to see... More

Lugareno Cafe had been open 5 days, they said, when we went there Nov. 13, 2015. This courtyard restaurant has been improved and enlarged since we were there in 2014 before the hurricane. We had live music (guitar and sax). The menu is much smaller--not a full dinner menu, but a cafe menu, with no wines, just mezcal drinks, in... More

This review comes late but we hosted our wedding rehearsal dinner at this restaurant over our wedding weekend (Memorial Weekend May 2014). We rented the terrace overlooking the ocean and it was absolutely stunning. Everyone raved about the staff, food, drinks and views. The owner, Daniel, was awesome at helping me personalize our event including table set up, menu, drinks,... More
