There are some public access points to the beaches at Nuevo, but many of the hotels are all-inclusive and do not serve visitors that aren't staying there. Etc is a good place to get a table and umbrella in the sand along with waiters to bring you food and drink. Both the chicken fingers and nachos are a good sized... More

We had drinks there today and it was a very nice place. The prices are very high so be prepared. The service was great. I liked the place.

Group of four of us. Needed a break from the all inclusive. About a ten minute walk from our resort. Very casual, sit on the beach or the patio. All kinds of seafood offerings. We ordered for the table the mahi mahi civiche, fresh guacamole and salsa and chips, and well, TWO orders of the house special shrimp.. The house... More

The fish tacos are mahi mahi and are very good. Service can be slow but the beer is cold and the service pretty good. Have been a few times and quite consistent. Have had food served to me on a dirty plate which was turn off. Quite expensive but you pay for the location I assume.

We first discovered this beachfront Bar/Grill last year and have returned on 2 occasions so far this year. Ricardo makes THE BEST Margarita in the Nuevo area and we have found the nachos, salsa and guacamole freshly made every time. Order the Jumbo size margarita at 85 pesos and skip the Cadillac version which has a shot of Grand Marnier... More

We have been stopping here for the last 4 years. Our favorite to order is the camerones tocintos...or bacon wrapped shrimp. Decadent, but worth it once in awhile. You get 6 bacon wrapped shrimps on a plate with a small salad and rice. And butter flavored dip of course. Cost of 240 pesos (approx. $15 Cdn). Presentation has changed alittle... More

clean, good location, good service, but high cost. value that worth. for a couple of times I went there and I definitelly would back, but with better prices probably more people may attend. I went on no holiday season and was perfect. only problem is the openning time at 11 am for me is late.

The cover is $300 MXN if your consumption is minimum of cover is not refundable. The place is good but the communication of promotion is poor not clear and obviously you need to consume 300 pesos for all these the place sucks!

Came here around 6pm for margaritas, pico de gallo, Guam and chips. The food was ok, needed some seasoning. It was more expensive than the typical beach joint.

Discovered while walking on the beach -- just stopping for a cold drink -- then we saw the food served to people around us and decided to stay. Excellent fresh food, grilled fish or meats. It's right on the beach so you can people-watch for hours, have a swim, watch a sunset, and enjoy very good food.
