This was one of the best tasting meals we had on our visit although the pricing was a little high.

My brother and I ate lunch here and ordered their large platter that included a rib-eye steak. The scallops were some of the best I have ever eaten and the shrimp and lobster were outstanding. The only issue I found somewhat bothersome were the vendors trying to sell things to you as you were setting at your table.

Fun restaurant right on the beach in Bucerias. Good drinks and appetizers after your shopping at the Bucerias market. Do not miss this gem for a quick or relaxing drink on the beach.

Great atmosphere! The food is great and fresh! Service friendly! It was a busy day on the beach being easter weekend! If you do not mind being solicited to off and on during dinner by locals then your golden! Ice cold beer with sand in my toes plus an amazing sunset! Bring cash! They do not take cards! Great place!

Did some shopping at Bucerias and it was recommended to me to go to Fat Boys and are we glad we did. We did not eat but had a few Coronas!! Great Service, cold drinks and we will definitely be back!! We were there around noon, started to get somewhat busy outside. Beautiful scenery! What more could you ask for... More

Fun place to stop and have a refreshing cool one and/or something to eat. Tables on the sand with shade...also tables inside the open air restaurant. Yummy shrimp stuffed avacado. Margarittas are big and strong!! The place was remodeled last summer. Will go back again.

Traveling with another couple and did side trip to bucerias. Walked the shops and hit the beach for some bars/restaurants. Loved the fat boy restaurant. Had calamari and fries and several beverages. Loved the staff and bought hats and jewelry from local vendors.

Super little place! Great way to get out of the heat of the Flea Market! It gets hot in there real fast and this is a super way to cool off. Happy servers to see you. :)

We tried this place because it was recommended and TripAdvisor had some good reviews. Food was delicious, yet the service not too much. Our Server Pancho, old grumpy man. Ignored us for maybe the first 10 mins, then finally came to take our orders. You can tell he was not in the mood to work. Later we encountered the owner... More
