We made dinner reservations from based on previous experiences and our friends were very nervous about going out to a restaurant due to Covid and we knew that this would be very open air.

The hostess is insured us upon our arrival that we would have an open air table and gave me two options which was fantastic this was also after 8 PM so they weren’t as busy but the place was still pretty full. Our friends felt really safe dining here especially the table we had on the sand.

Our server Javier Martinez, Was extremely knowledgeable and provided amazing customer service without being intrusive we hadn’t seen our friends in over two years so we had some catching up to do and he was very patient with that one of our friends had gluten allergies and Javier knew everything on the menu and guided him in the right direction.

Appetizer and entrees were amazing.
The gluten entrée was full of flavor and delicious perfectly cooked as was my tuna and the two fish dishes that were on special we had a flaming coffee which is always a wonderful experience and share chocolate cake which happier highly suggested and he was right on not too sweet perfectly prepared.

Was an amazing experience once again look forward to dining with El Dorado and having Javier as our server

We love coming here and have been doing so since 2017. El Dorado and La Palapa have a great New Years Eve Party that is well worth going to. The servers are always attentive and knowledgeable. The food and drinks are great. We like sitting on the beach.

One time we came for dinner on vacation and asked if they would make chips and guacamole and they did!
This time, they said no bc it was only made at lunch. A little disappointed bc that is what I was looking forward to most bc it was so good!

Sat at a lovely table ordered water … asked for wine list ordered the bottle-Sauvignon blanc-came out hot! Like never hit the chiller-server Juan p. Said maybe ju should be chilled. We were like hot white wine-YEAH… put in small amount of ice… he came back as the food was arriving and said maybe you want the wine…. Still warm not cold-
His assistant Carlos checked on us pouring water and making sure our meal was ok! Very nice service Carlos, maybe he should have been our server.
After sending the wine back/ we never saw Juan P again!
Another server y Carlos gave us the check y we paid.
Food was excellent seafood burrito and seafood enchiladas excellent.
Really think training is needed. No one asked about the wine or if they could bring anything else… one glass of water nothing else….
I would say 100% opposite of dinner experience we had 3 days ago.
Maybe we should stick to dinner

This was an awesome find. Both the food and the service were terrific. We felt like we were our waiter's only customers. The food was outstanding but it was the service and the great "on the beach" location that made it really special.

Wow wow wow…
It’s been a while Since we don’t hear from the beginning to the seats at the end of the meal was spectacular I wish I could give you 10 stars.
Our servers Alan y Daniel Or smack on attentive but not intrusive the lobster and bone marrow tacos are to die for the white cream soup with crab the news is perfectly done just like I remember the tuna was cooked to perfection as well as Mahi-mahi special which was exactly sure I guess liking. Seafood mix equally was done well as our server Alan suggested seafood over at the scallops and then to finish the cheesecake oh my goodness gracious was to die for and then three sexy coffees Delicioso we’re still talking about the cheesecake how delicious it was a top it off Javier a server out the past happened to see us and came over and checked on us several times nothing he needed to but it was a nice add a touch looking forward to coming back

Once again we were greeted by a very gracious and accommodating hostess. We had a perfect table overlooking the beach.

The chips and salsa were good while we waited for the kitchen to prepare the lunch menu.

The burger was delicious as was the Caesar salad.

This is a truly wonderful place.
Cannot wait to return!

We were met by the hostess with a great welcoming smile.
She let us pick our choice of perfect tables.
Our servers were efficient and professional.

I ordered a burger (a first ever inPV). It was really really delicious one if the best that I had anywhere. Tasty and juicy.
The Caesar Salad here is one of the best in PV.

Great lunch and perfect location.

Nice beach setting and ambiance. Decent food and service but not exceptional. Had reservations and still had to wait 20 minutes only to find that half the tables were empty. Staff seemed a bit disorganized in both service and properly maintaining food selections as I was told numerous times they were out of items I selected from the menu.

Their Christmas dinner was very disappointing. The soup was watered down with a strange taste. The turkey was overcooked bits from the carcass. Our main waiter was only available to take the order and pay our bill.

Gorgeous location, right on the beach with lovely lighting and ambience. We ordered seared tuna and the grilled catch of the day. Both dishes were delicious and decent portions.

We are giving 4 stars because the service was slow and because I wanted to order the set Christmas menu but they wouldn’t let just one of us order it. Either we both had to have it or we couldn’t have it at all.
