Excellent food although we only went for breakfast. Be sure to order a Bloody Mary - good and spicy! The fry jacks are a real treat and Doris took excellent care of us each time we were there.

Fry jacks and Bloody Mary's on a sandy deck by the water, what could be better? Nothing! This is a must on my list of places to eat each time I am in San Pedro. I could eat here everyday!

We stopped here for breakfast and here's my +/- review: + breach front + good shrimp and sausage scrambled eggs + simple dining, sand patio - took awhile for food, but it's island time!

Most of our food was average to good. The fish tacos were very good. View and atmosphere were fantastic. Enjoyed sitting on the beach and eating while the kiddos played in the water. Very laid back

We came to San Pedro to dive and dive hard. Estel's was right by our dive shop and I ate breakfast everyday of the vacation but one. Banana pancakes are phenomenal! Highly recommend.

I ate at Estel's three times for breakfast over my week in San Pedro and I feel it was a great value and atmosphere. The fry jack is a must!! Sitting beachside in the morning was a great way to start the day...

Great setting and vibe but food was very ordinary and not flavorful Tasted like Caribbean food from chain restaurant in US. Wish we would have made another choice
