My family has eating here for years. The service is the best on Playa la Ropa. As soon as a drink is empty the are right there. The menu is fairly small but the food is great. The orange juice is to die for!!!! It's our go too for a day at the beach!

Can't beat the location right on the beach. Good margaritas and guacamole but both of our entrees (coconut shrimp and tequila fish) were overlooked.

Everything is good at this Restaurant but sometimes the waiters are a little stuffy and always trying to get you to sit down, then you ask them for something and if they don't have it they are not nice about it. The prices are (keep an eye on your bill)

Had researched restaurants and somehow missed this one. Husband chose as we walked the flea market area. We both had delicious dinners. Husband had carne asada which was so tender and flavorful. Could cut it with your fork only. I had grilled chicken which had a lot of flavor. Wait staff very friendly. Nice evening for sure.

Ordered a couple margaritas on the rocks... might taste. Decided to get a bite to eat. My choice was tortilla soup and DH chose shrimp fajitas. Waiter were personable... More

Elvira is the best restaurant on the beach. The fish is fresh and service is great. Always enjoying our meals at Elvira.

The location is fantastic and the servers are very attentive and friendly. We keep coming back for that wonderful "toes in the sand" experience both for lunch and dinner. You can't beat it. What they desparately need here is an overhaul of the menu. We have been going there for at least 15 years and I think the menu has... More

On the sand next to the gentle waves. The servers are welcoming, with a genuine easy going hospitality.(good-looking, too.) Hubby loved the soup with corn. I loved the avocado and shrimp...and fajitas too. Staff moved the sun umbrellas during the day so we would be protected from sun. Before we leave, marguerites and nachos with that fresh pico de gallo... More

We go to Elvira's on the beach all the time when we are here in Mexico.. the food, the service, and the location is just excellent! We love it there. Two nights ago we had the grilled red snapper.. they grill the fish whole with garlic and serve it with fresh vegetables and rice.. absolutely amazing! It was so delicious!... More
