I held a retreat in Puerto Lopez with 21 people with varying dietary needs. The chef Antonietta Valencia is well versed in culinary creativity and dietary health. Her seafood dishes were exceptional, and the vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options were rage worthy! She also makes a decent cup of coffee which isn't that easy to find. The portions are...

I've been to Puerto Lopez many times, and this is one of my favourite places to eat! Antonieta (cook and owner) is a very welcoming woman that also cooks AMAZINg food! Small Mom & Pop place, but very nice!

I tried to go here for breakfast - but they were not open. Walked by early afternoon and the doors were shut. Just walked by at dinner time - still closed. Did they move?

This little place is a gem! I stumbled across it with friends one morning when another place we'd planned to eat was closed - we ended up glad it was! Her veggie omelet is amazing, as well as pancakes and bolon. I've been back for many breakfasts and lunches since and have never been disappointed. Antonia is so sweet and... More

After spending a couple months in Puerto Lopez, this has become one of my favorite breakfast diners. Antonia is super sweet and serves every dish with a big smile. The price is right too, as a breakfast with fruit salad and drink costs $3. It is located in downtown, just half a block from the beach and just next door... More

My wife and I stopped in for breakfast and found the food excellent. I had pancakes and Nancy had the omelet. It was a bit slow but she seemed to be cooking by herself. The food was definitely worth waiting for. Next day we tried another place closer to where we were staying and afterwards wished we had gone back... More

We took our breakfast in this small restaurant several days in a row during our stay in Puerto Lopez. For 3$, you can choose between different kinds of breakfast plus a drink (coffee or juice). All is really good (taste the bolones !) and you will have enough to eat. Plus you will be served real coffee (really important when... More

Went there for dinner. Fish and chicken served with veggies, yummy! Very fresh and great value for money compared to most of the other places next to the beach.
