Stumbled upon this place in search of cold beer and liked the patrons and staff so much came back for dinner. Dennis recommended cervichi, homemade chips and guac as well as pescado (red snapper that night). He didn't steer us wrong! The best meal we have had since we got here a week ago and left stuffed! And at a... More

It started rains no so we headed to Herradura. Spent the afternoon sitting at the bar watching it rain. Beers were ice cold. We also tried the ceviche...best we've ever had! Apperently it's a family recipe. Love the sassy Jersey girl behind the bar!! :-)

Being from NJ, we're accustomed to a certain standard of service. This restaurant did not disappoint. From the minute our group ordered drinks, we were welcomed like old friends. The ceviche was hands down some of the best I've had; with large pieces of fish as well as avacado. I suggest the whole grouper (amazing) accompanied by an ice cold... More

I hesitate as I write this because I would hate for this place to not have a seat for me when I came. Located on the beach right outside the gates of Los Suenos resort & marina on the beach of Herradura, it's the first restaurant and bar on the corner. Super welcoming staff will suggest what's best for the... More

We stopped in for a drink while we were waiting for the sunset. The bar did not give us an english menu for the drinks. The waitress also did not speak english so we had difficulty ordering anything but a beer. But she did go and get the bartender who could speak enough english so that we could order a... More

Thank you for your review! It's unfortunate that you rated us 3 stars based on your experience. Our regular menu is in both English and Spanish. I'm not quite sure any other restaurants on the beach have a drink menu in English. Goodness, there are so many drinks to offer, that we would have a book. Most of our staff... More

The food is good, the tables are a bit dusty because of the road right beside the restaurant (we went midday). We had ceviche and chicken rice. Both were good and fairly priced (especially compared to nearby Los Suenos). The place is right on the beach with pretty views of the water. It has a pretty loud juke box. A... More

Our fleeting time for pina coladas and ceviche pescado was memorable. The ceviche is absolutely delish and so fresh. The service is knowledgeable and kind.
