Love the location on the cliff above the beach. Coconut shrimp dry and old tasting. Steak good but nothing special. Breakfast unappetizing. However the view is fantastic and the staff is very nice. A new chef could make a huge difference as good food is...More

Great view. Great food. Good service. Certainly to reccommend. You can reach the place from the Carrizalillo beach via the stairs at the far end of the beach. If you do not have a car, ask the people of the restaurant to call a taxi...More

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....More

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,...More
