We wanted to have really good prawns covered in bacon and cheese, and we tried a few others, but went back here as we remembered from a few years back they were good, and they still are, no comparison. The ceviche around these parts is different, they grind the fish and cover it in lime juice, but this place also offers a more "normal" version with fish chunks marinated in lime juice and served with the right vegetables (no carrots on this one fortunately). Service is amazing too!

We go to Dugarel at least once a week for lunch. Their tortilla soup is fabulous and all sea food is excellent. They also have the best (and free) salsa and chips in town.
For the best experience make sure Reuben is there and that he is your waiter. He is the best! They have the best breeze and views in town too.

Visited the restaurant for seafood with the family on a Monday. We did not have reservation but were seated right away. Our waiter accommodated us, a family of 7 by adding tables and chair so we could be comfortable. Our selections for adults and children were all excellent, delicious and generous proportions. The view from anywhere in the restaurant was magnificent, we saw the most beautiful sunset. Our waiter took pictures of our family and we were very satisfied with the staff as well as the food and the cost of the meals. Highly recommend dinner during the evening before sunset. There is a taxi base near the restaurant so our return trip to our resort was convenient.

We just cannot visit this area without coming here for a meal. The food is just so amazingly good and the service is great. Luciano and David have been providing us with wonderful meals here or many years. Well worth the day trip to Bucerias to eat here.

WOW! Thanks TripAdvisors! Vacationing in Nuevo Vallarta, we wanted a dinner out with family and checked TA for comments and recommendations.

Dugarel Plays (I know, sounds odd) was rated highly for their seafood. Called for a reservation and two hours later were seated along the railing looking out over Banderas Bay at sunset. Absolutely beautiful!

The waiters were a flurry of activity, but in this authentic, rustic Mexican setting, they were very efficient. Wonderfully chilled white wine to start and I ordered a Don Julio anejo tequila.
Our waiter brought me a glass of their custom mixed sangrita. Amazing!

Seafood was the obvious choice for all of us. From the whole red snapper, to shrimp and prawn kabobs to my grilled octopus, all dishes were incredible.

Never have I had such tender octopus that seemingly melted in my mouth.

Definitely a must visit and a return Visit, for sure.
