Pangas Beach Club
Enjoy an alfresco seafood meal on the beach where the river meets the ocean. Wooden tables at this restaurant surround a giant ficus tree aglow with lamps. The owner aims to keep things fresh and simple, and she serves up fish brought straight off the boats each day from the fish market. Regulars never tire of the grilled octopus with olive oil and pico de gallo, or the Pangas rib eye—seared in the kitchen and placed atop a hot lava rock, which continues to cook the steak after being served.
