Description: Specializing in fresh homemade, Mexican cuisine, Los Charros’ kitchen is overseen by Juanita Vazquez. Juanita grew up in Acapulco and lived in Mexico City and Cancun. A consummate student of the Mexican tradition, Juanita toured Mexico for 16 years and developed exceptional proficiency with the culture, folklore dances and cooking styles from the Aztec west coast to Mayan east coast of Mexico. She prides herself on the fresh preparation of pre-Columbian and classic Mexican dishes that native Mexicans enjoy; neither too heavy nor over-spiced. For “Americanized” fare, Juanita collaborates with her "Gringo", Timo, a restaurateur with experience at trendy restaurants in Florida, Tennessee and Texas. Together with our island cooks, the Los Charros team guarantees the finest in authentic Mexican cuisine, popular Tex-Mex specialties and local island fare.

Clearly some notches above even the better Mexican restaurants; started with lobster bites, served beautifully in the shell with just right spice salsa. Then enjoyed main course as titled here; tasty steak and slices of lobster, but maybe should have gone with the Mahi Mahi in double-stacked coconut shells that I had small taste of; and again was as pretty as it was delicious.
Dessert was big slice of lime/ice cream pie that was superb.

Don’t miss this if you’re on DR north shore!

First of all, I would like to say wow and wow! to find mexican food in Puerto Plata is very difficult almost an impossible task, but somehow we found this place is on the road to ocean world.
We had pretty much everything in there but my favorite was the Extravagant Chimichanga ahogados and the Tacos al pastor! really I would go back there every time this place is simply great love the simpleness and tranquil atmosphere. BTW the salsa (spicy) that they give with the nachos is amazing!

KUDOS to Los Charros Chef,

Raul Hernandez

Great place to stop for a bite to eat and drink off the resort. We come back year after years to chat with Tim and his family. Happy Birthday Tim we will see you again before we go home.

In the heart of this small charming community is this gem of a restaurant offering amazing food prepared with great love, thought, true history and knowledge of the cuisine it delivers. Real Mexican cuisine by the wonderful chef Juanita, recipes from her home country of mexico, infused with Caribbean flavours she has adapted from many years in the Dominican Republic. You just can’t go wrong here. Beach is across the street, they also have there own pool and lovely soundings if you want to spend a Sunday just hanging out as well. Check it out !

Thank you Juanita for an amazing day at your restaurant. Your hospitality was great and the food was delicious!! The chicken enchladas were the best I have ever had. We had a party of 9 and all agreed it was the highlight of our vacation.
