Had lunch at this place on my first day in PE. Found it in Lonely Planet. I was dripping sweat after a long walk and was saved by Fernando's delicious frozen margaritas. Maybe I'm not a health nut. After some freshly made tostadas and chili dip I had the guacamole and fish filet in garlic. The guac was enough for... More

We went for dinner on March 20th. My wife had a chicken plate that was barely acceptable. My daughter had a Caesar salad which was mostly disgusting. I had a white fillet of fish that was so over cooked it could not be chewed. The bill was horrendous and the food fit for the dogs on the street maybe??? Do... More

Los Crotos is right on the beach at the Playa Principal and the ambiance is decent. The evening we went we were one of two groups in the restaurant; however, even given that relative dearth of people, the service was not great. Three of us had shrimp, one ordering the cheese and bacon wrapped version for 300 pesos and the... More

Los Crotos is a Bahia Principal fixture for good reason...they know how to cook the fresh local seafood. My order of giant, butterflied Shrimp w/ Garlic Sauce had me licking my fingers in delight. The entrees come with tasty, refried black beans and mixed vegetables. The view of the beach, with its many fishing boats, is also quite nice.

Beach front tables, great service and good food. Meals included coffee and fresh orange juice. Our experience with breakfast will probably have us return for dinner.

I was so excited to go here and get lobster to my surprise it costs $380 which is absolutely ridiculous. So we get tuna filet which is a flimsy thin little piece of tuna with a little spoonful of rice. Also when we get there we specifically ask if we can use a card to make sure, and then when... More

Wife had steak, waiter looked at me after I ordered and said, "your not having the lobster?". So I had lobster, three 1/2 lobsters to be exact, with the amenities for 190. Just a great meal for my third night in town.
