Fodor's Expert Review Jellyfish
This double-deck, open-air restaurant right on the sand is within walking distance of some of the big resorts, including Paradisus Palma Real and the Barceló Bávaro complex, and it draws diners looking for fresh seafood. When weather demands, sheer white linens offer protection against sun, wind, or rain without obstructing the exquisite beachfront views. Families come, too, because kids have a safe haven and a special menu. At night, soft lighting creates a romantic effect, but service is lacking at times. Often staffers are slow, not overly friendly, and lack English skills. Weddings and other private events are popular, and the average diner can be ignored when there's something big going on. Walk here along the beach; the dirt road is rutted and difficult to navigate.
