The Southeast Coast Restaurants


El Pelicano by the Sea

El Pelicano by the Sea Review

Over the years, this restaurant has evolved with the times; now it has an expanded deck and a dozen or more chaise longues and even Balinese sun beds both right in the clear water and on the beach. Hip lounge music plays, but not too loudly. This is the least expensive of the Boca Chica trio of waterfront restaurants and the only one with a beach. Although the cuisine is fairly simple during the day, the chef is allowed to be his creative self with the night menu. The lobster bisque and any fresh fish on the plancha (grill) works—most certainly the garlicky lobster or garlicky whole red snapper. Fifteen minutes from Las Américas Airport, this is an ideal place to endure a long layover, and it's even kid-friendly.
