In 1961, before the tourist boom, before TVs, radios and telephones reached Vallarta, the late Guillermo Wulff and his wife Nelly Barquet opened the quaint El Dorado as the first restaurant in Puerto Vallarta.
During the filming of The Night of the Iguana, El Dorado became the favorite hangout of movie stars like Elizabeth Taylor, Eva Gardner, Richard Burton and Rock Hudson. El Dorado soon became the Puerto Vallarta celebrity hot spot on the beach as well as the favorite gathering place for PV's movers and shakers.
Now, after a celebrated 50 years in business, El Dorado Restaurant, Bar and Beach Club is writing a new chapter in it's continual evolution. The restaurant was recently completely renovated, keeping the original El Dorado's authentic appeal while adding modern charm to create a tropical, sexy and inviting oasis.
With an approachable, casual and relaxed atmosphere coupled with Latin Asian dishes - all set to hypnotic World Beats, the new El Dorado has revitalized Los Muertos Beach. Add to this fresh sustainable and local seafood, excellent service and an incredible staff, and you will enjoy an unforgettable dining experience at El Dorado.
Embrace your senses at El Dorado Restaurant, Bar and Beach Club.
Open daily from 9 am2 am for breakfast, lunch and dinner, El Dorado is THE place to spend days in the sun and nights under the stars on Vallarta's world-famous Los Muertos Beach. For more information, call (322) 222-4124 or visit ElDoradoPV.com.
