We got tacos to go, so can't say much about the restaurant inside. It was packed with locals which we always take for a good sign. The tacos came with all the fixings, we ate them on the beach, and they were perfecto!

Very casual not fancy inexpensive. BBQ pork chop was very good. Tacos come with a big platter of salsas and other add ons.

Fabulous food in authentic atmosphere. We went with locals, but if you don't speak Spanish bring a translator app. Menu is in Spanish. Watch out for spicy foods if you can't eat them. The beef is a local favorite.

There are a couple of these, but this one is only open at night - fancier than the malecon partner that serves tacos. Very nice place
