Located front row on the beach.Love the sunsets you cannot find a better place to watch them in San Juan Del Sur. Live music 2 nights a week, and DJ Lisa on Fridays, Inexpensive drinks and if you are a golfer they have virtual golf. Great fish,Tona beer and fantastic atmosphere with a mix of locals and tourists. Enjoyed the company of our friends here while watching the boats and beach activity from morning until late in the evening.

Dorado's is a great place, with a great view. They have college and NFL games on the tv, and will try to put your game on if you request it. The owner, bob, is very friendly, and his staff are very good and attentive. We became pretty friendly with all of them, and they were wiling to watch our laptops, and other things while we went out on surf trips, etc.....

I enjoyed playing the virtual golf game that they have in the back. If you are there late, bob likes to play it as well, and he may fire up a game with you and just do it for fun.

The quesadilla's here are legit as far as food goes.

We were here during the slow season and visited Dorado's 3 or 4 times. Because it was slow season, there weren't many customers but we had great service. I don't remember what exactly it was we ate here but it was good, the beer was cold, prices were great, the view is amazing, but one of the greatest memory was being able to watch our Wisconsin Badgers NCAA football game. During our stay here, we walked past this establishment numerous times and the owner remembered our faces and made a point of just saying hello, not running over to us with a menu in his hand trying to talk us into eating there. Highly recommend this place.

We just spent three days in San Juan del Sur & visited Dorado's five times. We kept going back because it had the best atmosphere, best view, & best hosts (Bob & Shiloh - his real name!). Beer was cheap, the band played a lot of my favorites - Clapton, Stones, etc.). The food we had was good - mostly drinking snacks for us. Superb location for experiencing the cool town of SJDS. More fun than our home for sure - Jaco, CR.

The owner is Nica/American. He runs the place - Bob. Great guy to talk with and he'll put your game up on the big screen. Right on the ocean. Great food, too.
