Bogart’s – a pair of torches burn each evening out in front of a small pool leading to the grand Arabesque entrance of Bogart’s restaurant bar. As you may have guessed, Bogart’s is named after actor Humphrey Bogart and the Arabesque façade, homage to the actor’s perennial classic, Casablanca. Inside, the space is charming and the food quite good if a bit more expensive than it’s nearby competitors.
Soleiado Restaurant Bar – across from the Park Royal hotel and far enough away from the winding commercial plazas to have a more tranquil ambience (when the open air bar next door isn’t blasting music that is). The food is good, and the service… just as good – a pleasant vibe. Just looks and feels like a tropical restaurant bar. Serves mainly Italian and seafood dishes.
Ruben’s Hamburgers – a hamburger joint, menu full of hamburgers and hamburger accessories. Opens early, no frills, just hamburgers. Stands out, you don’t see many places quite like this in Mexico.
