Dignita on Playa Grande has the best seafood in town, with excellent seafood soup and “lobster” (more like giant prawns) (US$6–12). There are also a number of shacks along the beach selling simple and cheap dishes like fish carnitas.
El Faro Victoria (lunch and dinner Fri.–Sun., dinner only the rest of the week), next to the dock, has decent burgers, fish, chicken, shrimp, and lobster for US$3–10 per meal. The friendly owner, who speaks a bit of English, also rents out two tiny guest houses two blocks from Playa El Burro for US$10.50 a night.
Veleros is a good restaurant serving sandwiches (US$1.50), fish (US$3–6), and lobster (up to US$18 for the largest), with a deck right on the beach at Playa El Burro. The restaurant at the Hotel Playa Negra also has a nice view of the sea.
