Today we met at the palapa up front at 11am as we were going to travel on the bus all the way down to the ferry dock to the La Puntilla restaurant for lunch.
Gets a bit prettier down here.
Today I skipped my usual Pacifico Lite which was just as well as they served the pequeno size beers. We’ve had then on our travels to small Mexican towns but many of the ladies had never seen them. They look quite silly! I had a Pina Colada and it was delicious.
We all spent some time perusing the menu, ordered and soon the food started to arrive.
This family had molcajete with shrimp. The pot is sizzling hot and so are the shrimp.
So… what did we think of the food. Well the large heated platters that were shared were apparently very good. Sandi’s food was cold so she sent it back and ….it came back cold. Eddie had the same meal and hers’ was cold as well. The rest of us rated the food as just okay. Apparently the breakfast buffet is very good.
There was an added twist as the seafood platters were $200 pesos on the English menu and when the bill came they were charged over $400 pesos. The English menu was new and they’d made an error. Too bad but that is there fault not ours.
The service was good, the setting is nice but in the end the food was mediocre. Last week Diane and I had fantastic meals at Lucky B’s and the rest of the meals were good, but not great. Depends on what you order and how good the cook is and perhaps the day. My interest in this is to try different restaurants and sample different food. Consensus on the restaurant today was ….”doesn’t warrant a repeat visit.”
Next week we will try the El Shrimp Bucket on the Malecon at Olas Altas beach.
Marilyn, Sandi, Jeannette and I got off at the market to go to the fabric store. I am always amazed at the selection, prices and color. We spent quite a bit of time in the store looking at fabric and buying what we needed.
We arrived back in the park around 3:30 and I was tired.
Manny brought Ramona over for a visit and after her cookie she relaxed on Eric’s knee. She and Eric like each other.
A good day!
