Alright folks now the next question. Which AC restaurants serve good local food and which serve tourist cuisine? I want to stay away from the touristy stuff so please point me in the right direction.

My favorite restaurant is Estel's Dine by the Sea in the center of town on the beach. It is not exclusively local food there will be Charlie's Cheeseburger on the menu!!
But Estel was born in San Pedro any many of her delicious dishes are local!
Also she will fix your fresh fish exactly how you want it!
But the Best is Breakfast at Estel's watching the sunrise over the blue with your bare feet in the sand! Hard to beat!

Yes! I love Estel's! I have spent many a morning sitting there drinking coffee while wiggling my toes in the sand. Excellent fish and rice and beans. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

All the in town restaurants offer local dishes. The upscale restaurants, offer
their own specialties. For info on the upscales, look them up on this site and it will show their menus.

Estels!!!! One of our very favorite places in SP. As much for Charlie's on going commentary and music collection as the food. Each morning that SWMBO is diving Estel's is the first for me on what Charlie refers to as my daily "Mischief and Mayhem Tour". (I used to split the mornings between there and the "SmokeHouse" across from Coconuts. Howard only lasted six months but it was the only place on the island where a Hoosier boy could get bisquits and gravy with the obligatory, standard island 2 Belikin breakfast.)

Estel's has the best fish sandwich i have ever tasted. Just be sure to wear bug spray at night because those little critters love to fly around your legs under the tables. I had the proff the next day!

Margarita,
Okay....Limeaide it is. It was still wonderful!!! I must have guzzled 4 glasses at one sitting. Of course hubby was embarassed that I was headed to the bathroom so much. After a day out in the hot sun and being totally dehydrated from all the Belikin and Rum Punch consumption, it sure hit the spot! Have a soft spot for Estel anyway...... She looks so much like my mother did.

Estel's limeaide is better than gatorade for rehydration!!
Did you guys happen to notice Estel was featured in the San Pedro Sun two weeks ago?
