The night views are so pretty, the service is first class, and the fish dishes so good. Always have a good meal here.

This restaurant is on the lagoon and has a beautiful view of the island. They sell fresh lobster by the kilo and the waiter went next door to the fish market and brought over one for our approval. It was amazing and came with rice and vegetables. We also ordered molchajete, which comes out in a lava grindstone and looks... More

This was my favorite place to eat, hands down. We have not had cocktails here, just food. Outstanding breafasts as a good price, and they don't overcook the eggs, a problem down here. One morning I requested chile rellenos, that are not on the menu, and they were the best we have had in several years. Perfectly prepared. I am... More

This is our favorite place to go in Barra de Navidad for the molcajetes. You can choose from the shrimp,arrichera, or chicken. Molcajetes are round, stone bowls and the meal comes to you steaming and simmering in the delicious juices. It is like a fajita but in a bowl. We also were serenaded by the waiter Herman's son on Valentine's... More

We come to Barra annually and always eat at Velero's (Yes, this is the correct spelling - it means sailboat) at least once. The setting is tranquil, on the lagoon side of Barra. Service and food quality both excellent, with any of the seafood choices guaranteed to be good.

We were on a Cruise and one of the stops was Manzanilla. On one of the excursions we were taken to Velenos Restaurant and Bar for lunch and it was a taste treat. We had the guacamole and shrimp tacos and beer. The meal was great, the service was great, and the staff very friendly. I would love to return... More
