This is a beach restaurant which faces west. Go early enough to watch the sun set. Have a drink or a whole meal. You will not be disappointed. The presentation of the food is truly artistic. What a wonderful family run restaurant.

When you just want something small .... haha, be prepared to share. The club is full of melting cheese and peppers as well as the usual; it was delicious. Loved the fries too. Really good margarita. Friends shared a burrito and gobbled that up too. Juans is close to the La Penita end and is quieter than the central beach... More

We stopped in for lunch after a recommendation from friends. I must admit at first glance I was somewhat reluctant as at one table on the beach was a woman smoking with two dogs in tow. We decided to select a table away from that nonsense. I must admit that the food (Juan Burger) and fries was excellent. I also... More

We go to Juan's frequently. An outstanding burger with great fries. Or, how about an outstanding Shrimp taco. Great job with the other food items. Large portions, so, unless I'm real hungry, can easily split a meal with my wife. Great service. Not the cheapest place in town, but you get what you pay for.

We has seven of us arrive for a late lunch. We ordered four orders of fries, the shrimp salad, guacamole, chips and nachos. We ordered some margaritas some virgin piña colada's and a few beers. The service was good but pretty slow. The fries were like the best ever!!!! The bill was about 850 pesos. I'll be going back!

Big everything! Go with a small group and share a bunch of the yummy offering. Make sure you get a drink in one of the small fish bowl glasses they offer. Nice view down the beach too!
