La Besucona, Los Barriles S N, 23330 (at Playa Norte RV park)
Open every day except Tuesdays 11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m.
This beachside restaurant is super fun. They have a covered area, seating on the sand, and lounge chairs closer to the beach as well. El Gecko serves traditional Mexican baja faire at American prices (like most restaurants on the beach do).
Our kids love the chicken fingers and fries. My favorite entree is the vegetarian fajitas. It comes with home made tortillas, and a tiny portion of rice and beans. You have to ask for the guacamole (freshly made and sooo good) and pico de gallo. We also like their cheese quesadillas.
The table side guacamole and drinks are also very popular if you are looking for something lighter. The guacamole is delicious, but I can’t comment on their drinks, as we do not typically imbibe.
They provide fresh chips and salsa with your meal. Their salsa is delicious-smoky and salty.
This restaurant is close to our house and where we would take friends who are staying with us. Its expensive, but the food and staff (we love Oscar), plus its location make it worth the $$$.
