When vacationing in Puerto Vallarta, it’s almost required that you spend some time enjoying the local Mexican cuisine. You cannot find authentic food like this anywhere in the states. One of our favorite spots to eat in the city is El Dorado, a modern Mexican restaurant that focuses on incredible entrees and a relaxing atmosphere. If the incredible Mexican cuisine does not win you over, the beachside views most definitely will.


There are not many restaurants in the city that are open from breakfast through dinner, but El Dorado is one of them. Start your morning off with delicious comfort food like pancakes, waffles, pan dulce, omelets, and chorizo. Healthier options like avocado toast are also on the menu. Enjoy a cup of coffee or orange juice; if you want to brunch, you can even order your favorite adult beverage like a Bellini or Bloody Mary.

Lunch & Dinner

Of course, the winner of the menu is the variety of authentic Mexican entrees available during lunch and dinner. Freshly prepared tacos, enchiladas, and burritos will be some of the most delicious Mexican food you have ever tasted. Picky eaters can choose from a good variety of hamburgers, sandwiches, and ceviche. The dinner menu features exclusive entrees like the Crema de Elote, Del Mar, seared tuna, freshly caught seafood, and more. Multiple items on the menu include gluten free and vegetarian dishes for those with special diets. If you love seafood the Catch of the Day is a great entrée that includes a locally caught seafood item and rotates throughout the season.

Pair with Drinks

Every incredible meal needs its entrees paired with a handmade cocktail or glass of wine to bring out all of the flavors El Dorado features a lengthy list of available margaritas, handmade cocktails, cervezas, and Mexican wine. El Dorado is a great place for a romantic dinner for two or to take out the whole family.
