Wow, it’s gutsy to build a restaurant far out of town. You need to go about 1-2 km from town on cobblestone to reach it but so worth it (we were staying very close, so not far for us) Bring a flashlight if you are...More

This is by far, the best option for a great dinner at San Pancho. Located in a quite spot closed to the beach, it has a nice terrace with ocean view. Great atmosphere, service and off course delicious food.

This restaurant features an unexpectedly memorable experience. The menu features several creative dishes. We started with succulent fresh octopus accompanied by unrecognizable but delicious green beans. Our entrees were peppers stuffed with shrimp and lentils and mole with shrimp. Both meals had remarkably nuanced flavorings....More
