After reading reviews here we decided to give the restaurant a go. The menu IS varied but what we ordered was poorly cooked. I had breaded chicken with a tomato and Parmesan sauce, the portion was (ridiculously) huge and overcooked. It didn't feel freshly prepared at all despite taking over 45mins for the food to arrive. The dish my partner... More

I respectfully disagree with this #2 ranking. Estrella has a wonderful location and I think for that very reason they don't put a ton of effort into providing a good eating experience. Pros: -location -WIFI -Occasional Live Music Cons: -Service -Taste -Price I recognize that service is not a huge priority in Mexico. But they take it to a new... More

We have dined here several times over the last few years, and patronized it last night for dinner. It is a good option on Wednesday evenings when several other restaurants are closed. Our waiter was on the inexperienced side but eager to please. We started with the 2 for 1 mojitos, tasty but not sure there was much alcohol involved.... More

This is a good spot to go out drinking, they sometimes have live bands and great music. Great selection of mezcal and a cool place to spend a while with friends drinking.

Visited numerous times for drinks and ate here twice. Great seafood options as well as typical Mexican dishes. Great cocktails and cold beer. Nice location overlooking the beach.

Their dishes are abundant, and happy hour was about 3 hours. Great fish salad, lovely view, tasty fish tostadas and more. Best to drop by and experience it yourself!

We had a lunch visit here, relaxing place, very near the beach. We had the grilled fished salad and fish ceviche- the portions are very large. I would rate the food 6 out of 10. Their fresh juices are delicious.

Great location and view. Nice to people watch, coming and going to beach. Food is fine but expect you're in a somewhat tourist area, albeit lo key. Music volume was just right, not too loud, you can actually hear yourself think and hear others speak. Excellent service from Herberto.

I absolutely loved Estrella Fugaz and went back day after day during my marvelous trip to Mazunte. It is a true community center - I met locals, travels and ex-pats alike there that I hang out with during my stay in Mazunte and met up with in other parts of Mexico. I watched multiple soccer games there and had such... More

We went there for dinner by recomendation of our cab driver. We were gladly surprised by a very nice decorated restaurant, open and fresh, with an unforgettable ocean view. We had the fish "pescadillas", the octopus "a la talla", and the garlic shrimp. Everything was incredibly delicious, but I have to say that those shirmp will remain with me forever,... More
