Since there are several restaurants like this,on the beach, all with pleasant service, it's too bad the food itself was not better. We came in because there was a new sign out saying "atún hoy", and I couldn't resist some freshly caught tuna. I had...More

Good food overall. Great location. Try their Sopa de verduras con pollo: made from scratch while you wait. Salads are loaded with fruit, seeds - you name it. Portions are generous. Have had the dorado: excellent. Margaritas: outstanding. Their Agua de Jamaica has a bit...More

Service was friendly and food was good. Nothing to get excited about but with a nice view of the beach it is a good spot for an uncomplicated dinner.

Wanted to eat dinner on beach. All three of us had the pescador Diablo. Very good. Spicy but not too much. 3 dinners, 2 margaritas and wine, 665 pesos. Real deal.

Sitting at a table on the beach listening to the waves breaking whist enjoying a super moist, tender and tasty griled chicken breast, with juicy moist fluffy rice and sauted vegetables made for the best meal in this tiny hamlet. Gorgeous, gorgeous

We ate twice here. The fist time only a guacamole, which was lacking taste. The second time, we ate the shrimp and the fish. My shrimp was not my favorite I had as the chipotle sauce was overpowering. The fist was ok. The pinas coladas...More

In comparison to other nearby restaurants, this one is average. We tried the cóctel de camarón at several places, and Pelícano's lacked the spicy tang of the others. The guacamole was uninspiring, with very little avocado and more tomatoes. The setting does offer a nice...More
