From the phenomenal food to the delicious and potent Mezcal, Espadin hits it out of the park every single time!! Great wait staff, great music playing in the background, mind blowing views and again incomparable food...breakfast, lunch and dinner!!

Great view, great food and great service. We had dinner there twice in a raw as we really love it....and second time they already remembered our names! Better to book and specify you want the terrasse table even though the whole restaurant is open. Highly recommended.

People eat here because of the view. And it is nice to sit and look at Cari below and have a drink. But the food was disappointing for the prices which are some of the highest in Puerto. Our medium steak was rare and a bit fatty, the coconut shrimp was all batter and chewy shrimp and the side salad... More

Has changed hands several times as has the quality of the cuisine accordingly. Currently very good. Worth a visit for the spectacular view overlooking Carrizalillo Bay and the sunsets whilst dining. Margueritas on par with El Nene's, the best in town! Calamari to die for. On the pricier side, probably because in part, of the environs and ambience

We can see Espadin from the house we are renting in Puerto Escondito, so we decided to give it a try. The view from the restaurant was spectacular- a gorgeous sunset. We had a variety of dishes, and they were all good: the fried calamari, beet and jicama salad, chicken mole, steak and other things. It is a bit pricey,... More

I have eaten here many times over the years. As a former restauranteur, I value consistency very much. Espadin never disappoints. Little things stand out that are not so common in Mexico like proper wine service, no mistakes on the order, meat and fish cooked as ordered. Although considered one of the pricier restaurants in town, when all is said... More

Go early to get a front row table to watch the light changes over the ocean for sunset. Varied menu and usually live entertainment for the evening.
