We took the bus from the Mayan Sea Garden in Nuevo Vallarta to come to El Brujo and eat shrimp tacos and drink beer and swim in the ocean three times! Now, if you've ever crossed the highway to change buses with a 4 1/2 year old and a 21 month old in tow, you'll know that speaks volumes about the place!
El Brujo had the best shrimp tacos I have ever had! My husband & I ate several of them every time we went and my kids loved the shrimp quesadillas. And for 20 pesos each, what's not to love?
We always got a nice shady table right on the beach and spent hours there swimming in the ocean and eating shrimp tacos and quesadillas, and drinking ice cold Corona and Coca-Cola (in a glass bottle and made with cane sugar - yum!). It was absolutely our favorite part of our vacation. It was always hard for us to head back to our room for baby's nap.

My wife, I and another couple ate here twice during the week of March1-6. The fact that we ate there twice should tell it all. It's located about 3 blocks north of the Square on the road that runs along the ocean. It's actually between two other good resturants, Mezzogiorno and another the name of which I can't recall. It's a small place with about six or eight tables, half of which are oceanside, and the rest are just one row back. Menu is strictly Mexican, and very,very good. We had the red snapper ( which comes whole), and it was a good as any I have ever had anywhere. It's kinda funky, real local in ambience, and a building code nightmare. I loved it.
Best part is that, in addition to great food and a great setting, the pricing is very reasonable for what you're getting. We had four entrees and 5-6 marguritas, which including tip was 1000 pesos.
Only drawback was the occassional vendor who might approach the table with something, but a nod and wave of the hand and they went away. Not a big deal.

Great place to go to get out of the sun for a cold one and watch the surf. The shrimp tacos were hot and delicious. Staff couldn't have been nicer.

El Brujo is located at the north end of Avenue Pacifico on Bucerias Beach, next to Mezzogiorno. It has great seafood.. mexican style and an informal atmosphere on a deck overlooking the bay. We like it because of the great food and the fact that you can bring your wine, and they will serve it up, with a reasonable corkage fee. Authentic Mexican cooking and great fresh seafood.
