The title says it all! Loved the ceviche and fish in cilantro sauce. Friendly staff. We were served right on the beach and it was a quiet night. Enough food to take home and have for lunch the next day.

We went just to have a couple beers. We sat by the bar side which overlooks the beach, great view of the ocean. Cheap too!

This is not a chi chi Punta Mita restaurant but a place to connect with the local scene Be sure to sit upstairs-order the Punta Mita ceviche without the soy sauce and you'll have a super fresh, super healthy, super tasty dish with a fabulous view. Margaritas are large and more than 3 is definately not advisable!

One of several small, beachside, restaurants along the restaurant row in Punta de Mita. Fresh seafood well prepared, friendly service in a modest establishment. Apparently busier at lunch than at dinner.

Good choice of food, good service and beautiful location. We were driving back from San Pancho and stopped for dinner. We had a really good dinner overlooking the ocean watching the boats come in. Beautiful sunset.

I hadn't been to Punta de Mita for over 6 years, but had fond memories of spending day trips at the El Dorado. The beach has really gone downhill with lots of small rocks on the beach and many rocks in the water which makes it difficult to get out to deeper water. The restaurant itself is a good place...

Didn't have any place in mind and happened on this great place on the beach. Our server Joel was fabulous! I wanted shrimp & he recommended coconut shrimp & OMG! They were huge! They were the best! Chicken enchiladas my husband had great too. Would recommend and return!

This is the second time we have been here in the last 9 years and it didn't dissapoint. Where else can you have beach club service without renting a palapa. Great beer prices and attentive staff. Definately the perfect spot to watch the bay during the heat of the afternoon.

We have been going to El Dorado for several years. Just went this year again - to us it's the perfect way to start a great beach day with breakfast upstairs. The view is outstanding, the service is first-rate, and the food is plentiful and tasty. Breakfast is reasonable, and so many choices! After a leisurely breakfast, we moved downstairs... More
