    1. :

      Olga Lansdale, Halifax, NS We were so glad to get here 4 days ago as we couldn't come last winter. There are many favourites, including Fajitas, Sopa Azteca, Enchiladas Suiza. Chef Hector Mota is a very talented chef. The staff including Yunni, Erica, Carlos, and all the others are fantastic. In our mind the best food and service in Guayabitos

    2. :

      January 18,2018 We've been having Fajitas here for over fifteen years and have never been disappointed in either the food quality or the friendly service. Last night I asked if it was possible to have a 'Pescado Fajita' and the Chef agreed...'soooooo tasty', perfectly grilled pieces of Dorado added to this signature dish, now my favourite. I can only hope this option is added to the menu.

    3. :

      We were in Rincon de Guayabitos for Spring Break this year to visit friends who spend the winter there each year. La Pina Loca became our 'go to' place to eat. The service and food are excellent and I can't recommend this restaurant enough.

    4. :

      we have eaten here twice so far and both times food was excellent and so was the service. The entertainment topped off a great evening here. Wonderful people. the fajitas were awesome and also the coconut shrimp. an impressive way to serve up the fajitas.

    5. :

      I have been eating here since they opened years ago. Recommendations: Coconut Shrimp, Fajitas or the shrimp with melted in the 1/2 pineapple (can't remember what it is called on the menu). The soups are spectacular - my favorite The Onion Soup - made with a light chicken broth base and lots of cheese. Service and food are consistant. Same Chef - Hector and wait staff for a number of years.

    6. :

      My wife and I have eaten here almost since we started visiting Guayabitos 24 years ago as we backpacked throughout Mexico. The staff, Janet, Goofy, Erica and all others make everyone welcome which is why reservations are recommended as it is busy every night. The food, with Fajitas being the signature dish served in a piping hot lava bowl, is always outstanding. Their breakfasts are superb and I especially love the sopa de tortilla and the pozole. My compliments to chef Hector and his staff.
