Expect to pay more just because this is located in a more upscale hotel. Food and service were quite good but overpriced.

We stopped in and gave it a shot. Wife hated the Oaxacan fish tamale, I got bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with cheese - sounds great - but kind of bland. Overall nothing to write home about, you can skip this one. I agree with another reviewer, decor was nice which was what sucked us in.

Oscar makes great guacamole and nachos and fries. The fruit waters are great. Beers are cold. His service outstanding.

Steps leading down from the main street will bring you to this casual friendly place. They even show free movies on the beach periodically.

Decor was nice, as well as our server Manu, but the food lacked "sasón", that ineffable quality that makes food delicious. Which is a shame. A saving grace is that I requested the pasta "al dente" and it was. My spaghetti with shrimp has more shrimp shells and tails than shrimp, plus the Sauce was oily. My wife had shrimp... More

We spent two winter vacations at Punta Placer Bungalows and had many nice meals at the restaurant. The food is good, and each day they have a special. Nice atmosphere. A must visit in San Agustinillo.

Great eatery in Mazunte with cheap and fresh fish tacos. Also the curry soup was to die for! We went there twice on our 4-day trip we loved it so much. Wouldn't miss this one!

Simply great. David, one of the owner, is also a terrific surf trainer. Try him, you'll not be disappointed.

The offerings were wholesome and tasty. Take care though-- you are charged for each cup of coffee consumed!
