Adauto's Restaurant Bucerias
Adauto's is one of those rare finds. The moment you walk in, you instantly feel the camaraderie amongst the staff who has been working together for over 14 years. Most nights you will be greeted by Adauto himself who will entertain you with his charm and many stories. With a beautiful view of the ocean from every corner, friendly service and fantastic food, Adauto's On The Beach is sure to have you come back for more!
Previously part owner of Cafe Chapultepec at Hotel Los Tulles in Puerto Vallarta, yet loyal friends still follow him to his Bucerias restaraunt to this day, even buying into local Real Estate to stay close. The reason; "Adauto is a friend" many say. They come because they feel close, comfortable and "Adauto and his staff feel like family!"
Visit for lunch and eat under a palapa right on the beach!
On our last visit, we had the pleasure of meeting a couple from Seattle named Ray & Pat who indicated they had known Adauto for many years begining in Puerto Vallarta. Their weekly visits to the previous restaurant in PV turned into weekly visits out to Bucerias once Adauto moved. They followed and were influenced by the charm of Bucerias and eventually settled into buying a home here. Ray & Pat are the type of clientele that makes Adauto's special - they spend most of their days with the Pan de Vida (Bread of Life), an organinization that help kids that are living in the literal dump of PV, teaching them necessary skills to help them acquire a better lifestyle.
When asked why do they come so often? They said "Its about building relationships! The staff are so friendly, its the best place we know to go to unwind and rid ourselves of the burdens we see at the dump". Their favorite dishes are Seafood Nachos and what is known as Manuel’s Special! (Manuel is the Senior Waitor). This special is not on the menu - Tapea (white fish) with capers! They suggest caution when ordering Margaritas, "unless you like crawling - they're huge".
