Fodor's Expert Review El Coleguita
Just what you needed in the middle of the day: free tequila shots. Waiters at this super-popular family- and businessperson-oriented restaurant bring a generous serving of tequila to your table soon after you arrive, along with a small bowl of shrimp broth to open the appetite and a basket of crispy tostadas with a few types of fresh salsas. But what really impresses the crowds are the enormous platters of shrimp (breaded, spicy, or sautéed in garlic) served with a small salad and a big scoop of rice. You can order a whole red snapper or a generous fish fillet as well. The ambience at this patio restaurant facing the boats and the marina is casual and festive; the crowd hums with contentment while other restaurants nearby seemingly have been drained of clientele. It's open from 1 pm to 8 pm.
