Read about Karens this morning on the Best of Bucerias website and decided to have dinner there. It was all we hoped for and more. The food was excellent and the overall ambiance wonderful. We hope to return.

Had three wonderful meals there during my recent trip. Great location and service, music just right for the spot. It all comes together. Looking forward to my next visit... the eggs benni really is the best.

Karens is one of our favorite restaurants anywhere in the world. The setting, service and food are all perfectly balanced. Being able to sit and watch the sunset over a ceasar salad is a fine memory. The filet is one of the best. Ask about the special fish/prawn warp or the coconut shrimp. Just writing this is making wish we were back.
