The best fresh red snapper! We have been to Mar y Sol a number if times. It always has great food and service. The fresh fish (red snapper that day) was cooked on a open grill and served to perfection after watching it being cooked....More

Gorgeous views as dining on the beach. Ordered calamari and crab taquitos to start and then chicken fajitas for mains, all food was delicious. Served by Miguel who was excellent, very attentive and friendly.

7 beers for $5! Can't beat a deal like that. We enjoyed lunch here one afternoon. It was very good! Hubby had fish tacos and I went for a chicken sandwich. Of course we had some chips! Nice spot on the beach!

I had a fantastic margarita along with the best snapper I’ve ever tasted while listening to the roar of the beach. The town is rural and has that quintessential deal of Mexico...I was delighted to have experienced this place.

We have been to this restaurant over a half a dozen times over three years. Usually one of our favorite places, but service and quality is slipping. There are so many great places to eat in Bucerias. I am no longer recommending this restaurant.

Yes, but it is always a better deal to use pesos in Mexico. Bank of America has the best exchange rate for foreign currency.
