Susy: 'Suzy' on the beach
There are several restaurants on Playa del Panteon, right next to each other. When the waiters see you they all run to you and try to convince you that their place is the best.
Well, we decided for Susy, because Sergio, the waiter, recognized my Ljubljana t-shirt and knew about Slovenia. It's always nice to find somebody who knows about your city, so far away from home.
So, we spent couple of days swimming, relaxing on the beach, drinking lemonade, eating in a cool shade...
And at Susy's, they have two funny, and very loud parrots, Tobias & Paco.
Favorite Dish: Had several meal over there. All were great. But something special were Camarones ala Diabla (schrimps in ''devil's'' souce). The taste was all new to me, and not spicy at all.
I also had my first lobster ever over here.
And try their home-made juices (jugos).
- Food and Dining
Dont recall the name: Juicy comedor on Playa Zipolite
This place is located quite in the middle of playa Zipolite and comes with the usual selection of seafood and mexican antojitos, just like most of the places around it (though some on that stretch of the beach are more sophisticated).
What lifts it up among its neighbors are the fruit juices and smoothies. They were really nice and varied and a good reason to chose this place over others for a break in the shade. For dinner one might go elsewhere.
Dont recall: Comedor on San Agustinillo Beach
Nicest comedor in the Western part of San Agustinillo beach, just opposite capilla del mar. Painted in bright cheerful green, the decoration is nicely kitsch, with a Santo Nino de Atocha altar in the back and plenty of shells hanging from the ceiling.
Food options were a bit limited that day since the catch of fish had been bad, so we had cocteles de marisco which were reliable, and the beers were cool.
A nice place for a mellow hang out.
Dona Maca: Best Seafood in Puerto Angel (the town proper)
Superfriendly very Mexican family-run fish restaurant where everything is prepared from scratch when you order, so bring some time (but hey, noone is in a hurry on this coast and the food more than compensates for the waiting time).
We were sent here on recommendation from Mario Corella who runs Rancho Cerro Largo, the best accomodation in the area (between San Agostinillo and Zipo, on the hill overlooking the beach neighboring San Agustinillo's).
There is also a bar upstairs in the evening, run by Maca's chubby and friendly nephew who helps out in the restaurant during the day.
Favorite Dish: Campechana de mariscos - an out of this world seafood cocktail (shrimp, octopus and a sumptuous muscle called "callo de hacha" marinaded in lemon juice with chiles, onion, chopped tomato and cilantro)... To die for.
Everything is good here: also try the fish filet Maca style, cooked in foil with banana and herbs or any of the whole fish of the day from the grill or as u like it. Challenge Maca, she will comply :-)
