Ate here one afternoon after being recommended by a friend. Although it’s not highly rated on here we thought we’d try it anyway. And were very glad we did. The food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

I'm not sure why this restaurant is not higher on the Bucerias list - it's really great! We sat on the beach, and had the specialty margarita that they make at the table. Wow, might be the best I've ever had! The food and service...More

I cant recall the prior name of fat boy, but by the sound of it I think you are recalling Claudios Meson Bay on the other side of the bridge. That too has a new name and menu but decent reviews.
