El Dorado, Puerto Vallarta

102 Pulpito
Playa de los Muertos
Puerto Vallarta
Tel: 51 322 222 4124's insider take:

Chef Juan Zuno's fans vie for prime sunset seats at this redo of a 50-year-old favorite on Playa de los Muertos. Duck carnitas, miso sea bass, and chipotle-glazed ribs suit the beach setting. If you prefer your food sans sand, choose a table on the long wooden deck or in the dining areas beneath the A-frame palapas. The spiffy restaurant/bar also doubles as a casual beach club where flamenco performances, fire shows, and Middle Eastern music entice diners to stick around well into the night. Mornings at El Dorado begin with hearty chilaquiles verde and shrimp omelets with lobster sauce.—Maribeth Mellin
