Has changed hands several times as has the quality of the cuisine accordingly. Currently very good. Worth a visit for the spectacular view overlooking Carrizalillo Bay and the sunsets whilst dining. Margueritas on par with El Nene's, the best in town! Calamari to die for. On the pricier side, probably because in part, of the environs and ambience

We can see Espadin from the house we are renting in Puerto Escondito, so we decided to give it a try. The view from the restaurant was spectacular- a gorgeous sunset. We had a variety of dishes, and they were all good: the fried calamari, beet and jicama salad, chicken mole, steak and other things. It is a bit pricey,... More

I have eaten here many times over the years. As a former restauranteur, I value consistency very much. Espadin never disappoints. Little things stand out that are not so common in Mexico like proper wine service, no mistakes on the order, meat and fish cooked as ordered. Although considered one of the pricier restaurants in town, when all is said... More

Go early to get a front row table to watch the light changes over the ocean for sunset. Varied menu and usually live entertainment for the evening.

We had the pleasure of dining and enjoying Espadin's cliff top location on several occasions. I can't thank everyone enough for the special birthday celebration. Thanks to the hard working team, especially Milo and Antonio! The menu prices are higher and it is reflected in their fine ingredients and liquors. This special place is a must "do". Highly recommend their... More

This is probably the one place that everyone said we must try. We didn't have a reservation, but did mange to get a great corner seat to view the amazing sunset. The service was pretty good, and the drinks were better than a lot of other places we had tried. As for the food, we had been told they had... More

Having reserved a specific table, we were told upon arrival we couldn't have it because a party staying at the hotel "trumped" us (no pun intended.) Then, with live music IN the restaurant, it made it impossible to hear the people you were dining with. There were plenty of outdoor spaces where music could have been set up and played... More

Great view of Carrizalillo beach and the perfect spot to watch the sunset. The food used to be better but still nice for a drink and the view.
