I promised yesterday that I would show you photos of the various restaurants where we ate all of that awesome food. And I always deliver on my promises.
First up, the bar area at Los Lirios. They have done quite a bit of redecorating this past year and the bar now sports comfortable couches and lounge furniture.
It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a margarita or 3.
And the view isn’t bad, either. We tried out all 3 couches and a few of the chairs, too.
Mateo’s is a friendly cantina on the beach road. It’s not within walking distance for us but when we need to head into town it’s a great place to stop for a drink and some ceviche.
On the day we visited last week this man was preparing a huge pile of coconuts for cocktails.
La Luna is the spot where we had the bruschetta. It’s a middle eastern styled restaurant and they served us some delicious hummus when we ordered our dinner. That’s something that is a little different than here in the U.S. – once you order dinner they bring you snacks – often very good snacks – but if you just order drinks you get no snacks. Interesting, no?
Anyway, La Luna is beautiful inside although we always opt to eat outside. I just love this seating area, it reminds me of the inside of Jeannie’s bottle.
Las Estrellas, home of the black ravioli and couscous stuffed lobster, is right next door to where we stay. The inside is all white wood and Mexican tiles and it’s lovely and simple. It actually reminds us of places we visit on Cape Cod and the beachy vibe is awesome.
Finally, I have once again saved the best for last. Ziggy’s. Whether we are eating outside on the beach for lunch or inside in the evening for dinner, it’s gorgeous. They have these giant hanging baskets with lights inside off them that sway in the breeze. And the tables are all set right in the sand.
We opted to be “inside” both evenings we went but all that means is that we were under the roof since there aren’t any walls. And you can see from this photo how close we are to the water – those palm trees are at the edge of the beach. Gorgeous, right?
So, to recap, delicious food. Gorgeous settings. Great values.
I said it before but I’ll say it again: no wonder we keep going back!
