Review of Pelicano

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 it as the server recommended, barbecued, and it was overlooked and under seasoned-- so sad to not take proper care of a lovely piece of fish! My husband had a chile relleno con pollo
that had a bland tomato creme sauce with small pieces of chicken; pretty unremarkable. The margarita was very good and the price for the fish reasonable. The prices for guacamole and some of the basic Mexican dishes were higher than they should have been for the quality. Also, it is a small menu but they were out of the tamales. They probably would have sold another drink or two if someone had checked once during the meal. So we will search out other options in the future.

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 of a punch to it as it is flavoured with a bit of ginger (good for the stomach). You will not be disappointed.

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.

Lovely restaurant on the beach with friendly staff. In the evenings the tables have candles, an excellent setting to watch the sun set and stars come out. We had the fish filet with their "house" seasoning, it was delicious. Topped this off with margaritas and flan for dessert. Very happy with our choices for dinner!
