We ordered the prawn combo for two and it was an enormous quantity of food. All three types were good but the bacon wrapped with cheese was positively decadent. We had a scenic table overlooking the water and service was excellent.

Dugarel's has seating overlooking the beach and the ocean - just a beautiful setting. The waiters are friendly and the food is inexpensive and delicious. My favorite is Mahi Mahi. Went twice this trip and will be back next time.

A lovely setting on the beach. The service was excellent and the seafood fresh and delicious. A great experience with a surprising bowl of warm water at the end of the meal to rinse off your hands, a class act.
