Daiquiri Dicks is a popular beach front restaurant serving a variety of cuisine.
It is located in the heart of the city and is highly recommended by the Fodor’s Guide. An English version of the menu is available.
Decor, Vibe – Beach front restaurant with a great view. Lots of tourists and well heeled locals.
Good Cocktails – Daiquiri and Mojito
Whole Snapper ($210 pesos, 10:1 US$) – Wow, just look at the picture. Huge portion, fresh, and cooked well.
Giant Prawns Curry ($255) with coconut milk and fresh herbs – Lots of big shrimps in a really good coconut sauce. Finished with white rice.
Hazelnut crusted Chicken ($269 prix fix) with raspberry sauce, served over mixed green and grilled sweet corn. Very delicious and surprisingly tender chicken.
Cuban Bean Soup ($65) – A little spicy but very delicious and tender beans.
Grilled Veggies ($269 prix fix) – Wished there were more of these delicious vegetables. A lite vinaigrette covered them. Some items where a little burned.
Grilled Flank Steak ($269 prix fix) served over cole slaw with grilled sweet corn was fairly tastless. The quantity of meat was ok.
This restaurant serves very good food with reasonable service, all in a beautiful atmosphere. Daiquiri Dicks suprised us as few beach front restaurants have food as good as the views.
