Red Apple Bucerias

Why the upside down apple for their logo? It is in honor of Ricardo's hometown of Zacatlán Puebla which is famous for it's succulent red fruit. Ricardo remember being asked by his grandfather to help harvest apples from the trees and carefully pack them for market. with their perfect bottoms up to best reflect their perfectly delicious taste.

Here at the Red Apple Place they too take pride in making the best impression with traditional Mexican cusine and unparalled service and friendly staff.

  •  "It is family run, really good food and a great view of the bay from the far side of the restaurant - saw my first whale breaching from there. It is on the third floor, so it is a bit of a walk up, but well worth it. The staff is very attentive, the atmosphere is very Mexican and relaxing. I really recommend this restaurant - one of my favorite breakfast haunts in Bucerias" S.J
  • "We were standing on the street deciding where to go for lunch and somewhere we have never been. I noticed this place and when we were looking up at the place a lady went by noticed us looking and said you got to try it out, so away we went for the first time and had a great lunch, The view was excellent and the service was warm and friendly. Wish I could find the lady and thank her for a great idea. Will definitely go back." S.
  • "Best margaritas. Fresh shrimp cocktail was excellent as was the calamari. Arrachera served with special fried mushrooms delicious. Great service in a fun atmosphere. Highly recommende the Red Apple Place." L.

Went with an old friend. It was quiet with a great view of the bay and Sierra Madras mountains. The food and service were wonderful, and the view of the sunset was magical, although wasted on me and my buddy.

We wrote a comment Nov.4/2013 and neglected to check it. Hence, the barely intelligible review. We've since learned how to navigate technology, a little better. Our experience at Red Apple Place, every year, since 2013 has been awesome. Our vacation begins at this restaurant. When we arrive, it's like being welcomed home by Ricardo, his family and staff. As always, the food is great and the service, unparalleled. Looking forward to seeing you mid November. --Car & Lurline --

In February I had a large group in Bucerias for my wedding and a few days prior to the wedding we had a welcome party at the Red Apple. My parents organized everything easily with Ricardo and the party was beyond all of our expectations. The service from Ricardo, Hugo, Issac, Nacho, Gaby, Elvira and all of the staff was awesome. They made sure all of our guests had everything they needed and were well taken care of. As usual the food was delicious and the drinks, especially the tequila boom booms, went down smoothly! The highlight of the night for my new husband and myself was the surprise matrimonial smudge performed by Aztec dancers that Ricardo arranged at the start of the party, it was so wonderful and the pictures don't do justice! We cannot thank Ricardo and the staff of the Red Apple enough for putting together such a great night and a special thank you to Hugo for the painted banner, it was beautiful.
