I concur with the other comments... tucked away gem, the Real Mexico.

This was a challenge to find. Locals were there too, which is a good sign.

They had this seafood soup which is their specialty. I think I talked about that soup for hours, no days. It was so delicious! It had seafood "parts" in it, a crab leg, an octopus part and shrimp. The menu said it also had jam but figured out they meant ham.

I had ceviche which was also good but not as fabulous as this soup.

They have this cute little play area for the little ones that the local ninos seemed to love and it was fun to be part of the neighborhood.

We don't like fried food and I think this is what they specialize in. Our grilled fresh fish had a weird taste. Maybe it was the oil they used, but it definitely detracted from the fish. For $42 we had two fish entrees, guac, and a few drinks. You can get the same food at the best places here for 10 more.

Here's a restaurant tucked away on the south side of the city. A member of our Playa Azul Hotel wait-staff recommended it to us. It's open 12-8 daily and serves mainly sea food. The drinks, especially the hand-shaken margarita's were excellent, as were our entree's. We highly recommend this spot.

Open air restaurant - open for lunch and dinner. Mostly locals. Large portions of delicious food. Ordered a salad before thinking about potential intestinal consequences, but had no problems.

Our taxi driver found this restaurant after the one we planned on going to was closed. We were looking for a place that would cook the fish that my son had caught spear fishing (Anibol/Spear Fishing Today) earlier in the day. On entering this restaurant we were given a gracious and friendly greeting and shown to our seats. We ordered cocktails and guacamole. The cook prepared our fish and it was served with rice and vegetables. Everything we ordered, along with the service was excellent. The dining area was clean and pleasant . Our experience at El Coctelito exceeded our expectatIons.
