The tortilla soup is the best anywhere. The fish dishes were super duper. Don't go if you are dieting. The food is rich and creamy.

If you want to have traditional Mexican with a flair this is a great place. The fish filet stuffed with Shrimp and Octopus was amazing.

This place is a few blocks up the street from the beach but worth the walk. The margaritas are good and the menu very interesting with lots of different kinds of dishes from the usual. We shared a Caesar salad first and then we both had the spinach and cheese stuffed chicken breasts. We actually watched them making them as... More

We went to El Brujo for dinner on a Tuesday night. We got the Chicken Poblano and the Santa Cruz Fish. Both were excellent. The poblano sauce on the chicken dish was AWESOME. We also had a margarita which was excellent...not over-sweet like many places. As an appetizer we had nachos for the table and they were also good. If... More

Very yummy food, we had margarita and Pina colada, both were giant size and delicious. We ordered cilantro queso and although it was supposed to be an appetizer, it filled us good on top of the drinks. I have never had anything like the cilantro queso before, very tasty. They are on the pricier side, perhaps catering to expats because... More

This was our 2nd visit to El Bruno. Both times we were delighted with the food and the service. All four of us loved our dishes. The shrimp with garlic and the sea food soup we're the best. The waiter was great.

We had a good family meal...but the open kitchen makes the restaurant oppressively hot. I was also surprised to find that this "local" restaurant was exclusively patronized by Americans! If that's your thing then go for it....the food won't disappoint. The seafood ceviche is REALLY good...

I normally visit El Brujo at most of my trips to PV, but continually forget to write a review for them. I figured it is time to give them the credit they deserve. This place is in Old Town a little off the beaten path, but only 50 pesos for a cab ride anywhere in Old Town if you aren't... More
