Jules..Our favorite by far was Papi's Diner. While Island Junkie is correct in that the food is not gourmet,it is just down home cooking by Papi's wife, and very reasonable. Also,with 2 hungry teenagers, don't forget to stop by Celi's Deli for very inexpensive, but wonderful meat pies,garnaches,tamales and Mayan burritos(burritos with a delicious cheese sauce). We would stop and buy a bunch of items and go back to our room at the Seven Seas and chow down.Save some for later and reheat. Estel's by the Sea is also a must..food is great(especially the breakfast) but a bit expensive,to us, anyway. It is just wonderful to eat your breakfast while,as someone else has said, wiggling your toes in the sand. Elvi's.. great service and seafood...don't get the steaks! Horrible! Everything else was great. DO try the street vendors, the food is great and cheap;we would never eat from the vendors in Mexico but we never got sick eating anything in AC. The local kids would come by after school and sell items that their mom's made during the day. Very cheap and very good. Enjoy!
