We kept gravitating to this restaurant on the beach because you get an excellent breeze from the ocean and because you are sitting higher up, a panoramic view of the beach! The staff is very friendly, attentive and speak perfect English! We only had one meal here but the coconut shrimp was amazing!

There are 3 Tonita's in Rincon de Guayabitos, and one in la Penita, and they are all excellent! Great service, wonderful food, lovely ambiance.

We have eaten here before 2 years ago but wanted to left everyone know that it is still a good place to eat. I had the fish fillet with cilantro and butter sauce and my husband had pasta with shrimp and butter sauce. Both dishes were very good and also the drinks were good as well.

There are many excellent restaurants in Guayobitos and La Penita. Our favourite is Tonitas 1. We have many friends and family that come to visit. A meal at Tonitas is everyone's top request. The location is right on the beach. The staff is excellent. The food is 2nd to none. Their seafood is their specialty.

This family-owned restaurant is always good. The staff always recognizes its clients. From hamburgers for lunch to seafood at dinner, the meals are top quality.

Loved having dinner on the beach with such tasty food. I had the pistachio encrusted stuffed fish and my husband a shrimp dish. The presentation was beautiful and the portions huge. Attentive and professional wait staff. Best margarita of the entire trip.

We went here on a recommendation from friends. It was a good call on their part. The food and service was great. I had the chicken quesadilla's which were awesome. I also had a strawberry margarita which was very yummy. This restaurant is very busy, especially at supper time, so I would recommend a reservation if you are going with... More
