Surfing in El Salvador wouldn’t be the same without eating at Restaurante Erika’s, located in Playa El Tunco in front of the beach and across from Sunzal Surf Shop. Local owner Amelia Hernandez and her family offer affordable, delicious seafood and breakfast and lunch. Don’t leave without trying the stuffed fish and the cream-based Mariscada (lobster-crab-shrimp soup). Also, the Filete a la Plancha is a classic!
Restaurante La Bocana
Located at Playa El Tunco directly in front of the beach and the famous El Tunco/Sunzal Rock. This is another great seafood restaurant with great service. Local owner Luis Delgado and family have been here since the town began and their restaurant is one of the most popular places to enjoy the sunset.
Jorge “Pijuhio” Rivas has a great hamburger, sandwich, hot dog, soda and juice stand. It is located in Playa El Tunco next to Sunzal Surf Shop. Here you can get a great lunch and snacks, grilled sandwiches and fresh squeezed orange juice.
This is a beautiful oceanfront restaurant/hotel overlooking La Bocana and located in Playa El Tunco just before the soccer field. Here you can break the seafood routine with delicious pastas, gourmet sandwiches, and refreshing smoothies.
This is locally renowned restaurant that is owned by the same owner of Casa De Mar. It has a beautiful ocean-lookout over the point at Sunzal and very high quality seafood, pastas, wine, and service. A must visit during your surf trip.
